I've been asked to lead the product for a b2c company after working in tech for the last decade. My company was acquired in 2019 by the same company and now the CEO requested me to move to product saying there's lack of good tech people in Product.
Our students are rowdy and negative at games and events. I know I should “crack down”, but lecturing them or canceling things is not effective and punishes those who aren’t the problem.
I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I have no passion for the work I’m doing. While I love the craft of storytelling and enjoy working with many of my colleagues, I have zero interest in the accounts I’m on, have concerns about the flailing leadership at my agency and am at a crossroads. But I’m at a point in my life where I’d rather be running toward something amazing vs running away from something I dislike. Looking for stories of those who made a switch, no regrets. Thank you.
Want to buy wife (32F) a bracelet for our anniversary (she mentioned this a while back wanting a bracelet). She’s not too flashy. Any brands (boutique preferred) that anyone can recommend? Budget is $500-700.

Deloitte Toronto/Vancouver industry solutions healthcare domain - Are they still conducting case study interviews? How difficult are those?
Any love stories started in the firm that can inspire us? Lol I am losing my hope on meeting someone
Why are leveraged ETFs a bad idea if you buy and hold? I get that there’s more risk than reward due to decay but it doesn’t make sense to me from a stock price standpoint. UPRO’s price has more than doubled in the past five years whereas the S&P 500 hasn’t, so what’s stopping you from realizing those gains?
Looking for a Leidos referral for a Project Management role. I have one in mind, please reach out, thanks!

Life was so easy before I had kids.
Broke up with my fiance the week before Covid hit (not knowing all this would happen). Now I wonder what life would have been like if we hadn't broken up then. Maybe we could have worked things out? I will never know.
i feel like an outsider on my own team.
if we weren’t worked like actual robots it would be less hurtful but to have to constantly prioritize work and still feel like i’m not doing enough is so defeating.
I was just awarded the “Pro” badge in the Career Advice for Students Bowl and my own career is a mess.

I hate thrifting. There I said it

Confused on why people are saying 100k now a days is nothing in NY. Is the general consensus that living in NY=NYC and not the outskirts of the city?
Honestly I cringe when I read “I got my dream job at the Big4” from new college graduates. Those same ones are the ones on here now complaining heavily about said dream job. 🥴 . Sorry I’m just being honest.
Currently have a framed painting like (see photo attached), what do I buy to get it to look frameless like (picture in comments)
I called a few places to get the painting reframed and was quoted in the $300 range.. not down to pay the same price as the painting for a reframing…
Is there a general questions bowl?
Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too
When my parents call I don’t answer and call back 4 hours later. I tell them I’m busy but I’m just hanging out here in FB, playing ps5 or online shopping.
I have a terrible relationship with my parents. My friends in long relationships are breaking up/cheating on their partners. My friend parents are also getting cancer/health issues. Is this what the mid 20s are supposed to be like?
Just woke up from a dream where I was scrolling through on LinkedIn and I created a world where they created a “Memes” section.
Am I overworked? Ready to be a product manager? Basically describing 🐠 bowl? All of the above?
When someone stands really close to me, I usually say "Please just stop" out loud to them. Is it considered very rude?
Met someone on CMB. His age was listed as 36. We go on a date and he turns out to be 43. He says CMB pulled his age from Facebook where he had the wrong age and he wasn’t able to adjust it. I’m 30. Red flag right?
