Go to your local Best Buy, check out what model you like, order on Amazon.

Dude just buy on Amazon

A1, in states where Amazon charges sales tax, that's inefficient.

Black Friday and Prime Day both suck.
I worked at Best Buy for 4 years in college and I've been a Prime Member for 6 years. The only thing they put on deep discount is the trash.

In years past I would say Cyber Monday...but I feel like electronics don't get discounted that much these days so go Prime Day and see what's out there

Best time of year to buy tvs is march! Super bowl clears out most of previous inventory while. Ew models are arriving. If You can find a last year model in stock you'll get a great deal

New job is pressing me to start 10/25. Old job is screwed/burned bridges if I don’t stay until 11/5. We have an SEC filing due 11/5 and I do the SEC reporting.

Can I suggest to the new gig working both jobs for those 2 weeks? They can send me a laptop and I can deal with onboarding/system access/intro calls while wrapping up lose ends with my old gig and ending on a high note.

Is this a weird thing to propose?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?
