When I am super stressed about work or just having a bad day I watch videos of dogs wearing booties for the first time. Literally have to smile and laugh.
I’m mourning the loss of a multi year day dream, an impractical fantasy that never could be in the real world. While I don’t want to get into the details of it, I would appreciate warm hugs and positive vibes. It was an amazing day dream while it lasted and I know this is good for me over the longer term, I just need to get through my period of mourning and bury it. Time, space and solitude, as medicine. 🙏

Looking for career advice for a mentee who has two competing Internship offers as a sophomore from Google and Uber. Initially encouraged him to pick Google because of brand name, but the Uber offer pays an extra $10k over the summer and he supports himself through college so it is a material difference. Also from what I've heard, it's easier to get a return offer from Uber than Google's soph program.
Which would you take and why? I'm not in the tech field so trying not to give bad advice 😁

I understand you should calculate YOE differently on resumes and job applications (usually do not count military unless directly applicable); I am talking about informal conversations between colleagues
Anyone else have rude people at work that you used to be able to verbally destroy but now you work in corporate so you use 10 forms of Newspeak to communicate your thoughts in other ways?
