Good problem to have. $5 a gallon is no joke


Last night I prayed that God would turn some of this gas in my stomach into fuel to move my car


My friend says he has the “hot Cheetos” test where when you reach the age that eating hot Cheetos gives you heart burn is the age where you’re no longer young.

Have you reached this point?


Wait till you’re 40 😃.


The week after I turned 40, I went to Italy and ate a lot of food with tomatoes every day. I had two weeks of heartburn when I came back home, which was an unwelcome surprise. Since then, I have cut back on eating acidic foods.

I’m sure there is no downside to exercise and healthy eating now. I feel fortunate that I don’t have many physical aches and pains yet- exercise does help.


Just wait. One day it’ll take you several minutes to get out of bed, you’ll need help getting your shoes on and you’ll walk at an angle for the first couple minutes of your day. Back pain suuuuucks.


Funny how this post popped up immediately after someone asking about "aroma360 systems." You have an SO at KPMG?


Your body just knows. It’s sorta how my bones hurt after I turned 21. Post 25 - all my joints hurt.

Just sit until you’re 32! (Gasp!)

I didn’t know this was a thing. Thank you for letting me know.

I’m in my 30s and SO is in their 20s. They ask why I have more gas capacity than a Cadillac Escalade. 😭

45 and no such problem

Try drinking more?

There’s no such thing as a perfect job.

I know there are definitely worse out there so it’s hard to put my foot down and resign, I could just stick it out for a year but am feeling demotivated and too exhausted to do anything else but sleep after hours/weekends. Have you ever started working somewhere and although nothing overtly wrong or terrible about the place / colleagues, it just didn’t feel like the right fit & if so, what did you do?

Getting offers at top companies I never imagine I’d have a chance to compete in even- and kinda don’t give a shit. Getting offers is exciting but then everything else is so less motivating. Brand names and money just not doing it at all for me anymore at 33yo :/ don’t what what would.

Is there anyway to safely name and shame individuals who have committed workplace abuse & harassment ?
My lawyer had advised me not to speak on my situation at first but is now saying I could share something if I wanted to. I've had a few significant career/personal harmful experiences with individuals in high positions of power at well known companies. It seems insane to me that these people continue to be allowed to work and control many people's careers without being held accountable.


Time to share little acts of kindness shown by people around you (+ on social media)

I’ll go first:

Saw this post from a neighbor this morning and it made me smile. There’s still a lot of niceness and kindness out there.

The government should have never gotten involved in student loans. Because these loans are government backed and you can’t even get out of them by declaring bankruptcy, colleges can now charge whatever they want without consequence and people will have to pay it. I don’t even have any student debt and this bothers me.


Not enough coverage of this at all. Police don't serve or protect anything but property.

I was all set to do some write ups about how to change the industry I'm connected to could do for the better but the person I was to do it with went off the deep end on web3 scams so I've basically been hiding from them.
