Is it just me or are all (or at least most) people socially awkward and just pretend to be ok around other people to be normal?

I definitely know people who are true extroverts (feed off the energy of crowds and larger groups) but I think more of my friends are further down the introvert side of the scale

Hey guys, what’s your strategy on newly formed SPACs (if any). I noticed ARK created a SPAC, ARKIU. I feel pretty good about ARK in general. I”m wondering if it’s best to get in now and just let it ride and figure out what to do after a target is picked or wait until a target is picked and then invest. Thoughts?

I recently found out I’m being paid less than a coworker who started in my department about 2 years after I did, and also has less experience overall.

I would like to discuss with my supervisor, but also have an interview coming up for a promotion (within the same department). Should I discuss my current compensation before the interview?

SEEKING OPINIONS & FEEDBACK: I love the honest & practical discussions here, where people can freely identify things that are going on & seek guidance.

Wondering whether anybody’d be interested in some kind of more purposeful community- i.e., gathering w/fellow lawyers to pursue some specific mental health & well-being goals? We’d provide some counseling/coaching type content, in bite sized chunks, but have regular discussions to connect & encourage one another on applying the content IRL.

In a LT relationship that checks all the boxes, and my SO makes an obvious effort to make sure I feel appreciated. Problem is every time I try to do something special for them, I'm met with unenthusiastic comments or "you didn't have to do that". They don't make much effort to join my family events, and when there was a stressful event in their family they asked me to stay home and watch the pet while they went to visit. I was the only SO not there, and while they made it clear i wasn't at fault
