Lawyer here with a concentration in international tax, in and outside of the US. I'm ready to make the jump out of this pure billable hour ridiculousness.
Going to be bored over holiday season and was thinking about starting up the Python Institute Certifications (probably the whole roadmap). I would say I’m at an intermediate level currently. Anyone with the certs have thoughts on worthiness / best way to study / how it helped them in their career or job search? Thanks in advance 😄
What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.
What’s a good, practical tax book to read for someone who knows nothing about taxes? I feel like I should familiarize myself with them but don’t know where to start/find the topic very overwhelming and dense even as a finance attorney. Welcome to other beginning finance book suggestions too! (Already read Kiyosaki and Ramsey)

Does anyone work at a company and your boss says to other coworkers “ she makes to much money ? I’m salary and commission. My commission rate was reduced when I went salary in 2021 and lost OT and paid out PTO. My boss use to be then owner but sold us out . They are the VP until March . I work 14 hours a day for over a decade. I’m at my breaking point . I use feel so undervalued . The laziest people get praised.
Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)

Curious how other marketing teams like to share resources internally. I'm considering creating a centralized hub where departments can access news, branding information, logos, premade materials and basic templates like letterheads. I'd also like to be able to give specific users access to specific things (ie I don't want everyone to have the logo vector).
Any suggestions or thoughts? Know any software for this? My instinct is just to build a website or page with logins, but open to options!
When your contemplating leaving an organization, do you give your direct supervisor advanced notice to try to make changes to make it work? I haven't been at my new organization long and my last job I was at for quite sometime. I feel like even if I talk to my supervisor it won't get much better, but I've only left an organization after knowing confidently things won't change. I'm so new I don't know if it will and from what I'm seeing I don't think it will.
