Love my travelpro! I like soft suitcases vs the hard shell ones.

Seconding TravelPro! I think it’s the best option without dropping $500+ on a suitcase

I travel with a basic black Tumi ballistic nylon expandable roll-aboard (I think the line is called Alpha now). I had my first one for 15 years and this one is 5 years in. Tumi repairs it when it needs it. I tie a bright fabric ribbon on the handle to distinguish it from all of the other black suitcases in the airport.

I bought my first one in ‘98!

I’ve purchased a couple brands, but all of them got trashed or excluded from airline size restrictions until I got a tumi. I’ve had mine 8 years and it’s still excellent. I’ll be brand loyal for life.

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.

Hi ladies, its my first time posting here but thought I'd ask for some advice on this. am a beginner UXer with a design education background. I just got a job as UI Designer. I am super anxious.

This is making me so insecure getting into the new job what if I make a fool of myself? What if I ruin projects and real client work? Should be excited but can't stop overthinking.
