Many days I get hit with pretty bad existential crisis thinking my time on earth is limited and I might not leave anything meaningful. On top of that I’m spending 80% of my time tying out spreadsheets. I honestly don’t know if anything I’ll ever do will make me feel better of my fleeting existence in the grand scheme of the universe.

Literally the reason why I quit PwC. I can honestly say I’m enjoying my life a lot more since I left a couple years ago. You should think about what is important you/ what you value in your life! And then make your decisions based on that. I made this reflection as I was traveling to my client site out of state and that’s when I decided I needed to quit haha.

Every time I gain few pounds, I get a pregnancy test bc for some reason I can’t believe it’s my poor diet that’s making my belly look the way it looks. Once I see I’m obviously not pregnant, I get a long term burst of motivation to stick to a healthy diet and the gym. This has happened 3 times

My manager scoffs at me because I don’t come off “hard/dominant”. But I’m really just holding back because of the hierarchy dynamic. It’s funny because even though she outwardly comes off hard she’s also the only person I’ve met at the firm that breaks down and cries so easily lol.

Need some advice. My fiancé and I are planning on getting married in July 2022. We had a discussion the other night about where we would live after getting married - she lives in Kansas City currently (originally from abroad), I’m from NYC, born & raised. The problem is I told her I’ll live in my apartment for a while after getting married (~2-3 months), while searching for a new location for both of us to live. She got pissed & twisted my words saying that I’d rather live in my NYC (continued)

Work from home has been great for many reasons, but the confession part of this post is how much a loud, disorganized, chaotic environment raises my stress levels. I’ve realized that I can be so much more productive in a quiet home office. But I know some people like the “energy” of a corporate office.
