I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
How have you retained the will to keep going on your current trajectory? I’m currently on track for promotion and doing well, but I’m struggling to muster the energy needed to keep it up. Just bored

Could I use a job offer that I don’t want as leverage to get a raise? Or is it not really leverage because I don’t have the intention to actually leave. This is more of a hypothetical question.
Can you create a new delta sky miles account and sign up for your companies fast track promotion challenge again if you didn’t achieve it last time? Or can they block you from doing so?
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
Does having a “veteran” designator play any part in the promotion advancement or internal growth? Haven’t seen a lot of ex-military in the firms.
Since we're all talking money, I just got my first raise ever and I'm feeling stoked. 🤗 My loans may still have me broke as a joke, but at least I'm feeling valued! ☀️

Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?
So I give up. I'll ask. If you guys are traveling every week, to same hotel..WHY THE FUCK DONT YOU CHECK YOUR BAG AT THE HOTEL? Skip all the drama. Clean replacements every wk, easy peasy.

Today I was officially diagnosed with adult adhd. I can’t begin to explain how relieved I am. It turns out things that I’ve considered personality defects are actually symptoms of this disorder. Interrupting people, saying inappropriate things, swirling on a topic for days: all issues I’ve battled with since childhood and finally have an answer. Mental health is important. Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.

Ladies who did long distance with their partners- how did you make it work logistically? My bf and I live 3 hours apart (flight distance) and we see each other every 3-4 weeks and spend two weeks together when we do. It's hard (my love language is physical touch), especially since we are in the early stages of relationship. We met 5 months ago and been exclusive for 2 months. We talk everyday but i still miss him a lot and it's tough
