Argentina! Greatest country in the world. Buenos Aires is basically Paris with palm trees and better wine. Then you have the pampas, where they raise the best beef in the world. Then there's Bariloche, which is like Switzerland, but with more beautiful mountains. And all that is before freaking PATAGONIA! The most astonishing, breathtaking place on Earth.

For those who did the One Clubs “Mentor and Creative” program, do we put it as an internship with whatever agency or company that hosted us. So, for instance, if you were mentored by some Google CDs for 6 weeks to create an ad campaign that you pitched and might get produce, would you put in your resume or LinkedIn “Google internship.” Does it qualify as an internship cause I’ve seen multiple students put it as an internship.

Thoughts on options vs RSUs? I have the opportunity to choose one or the other (but not both) as part of my compensation package and I’m trying to decide which would be best to further accumulate wealth. For context, the vesting schedule (4 years 1 year cliff) is the same for both and the options would be offered at a 3:1 rate compared to RSUs. Additionally, the company is projected to IPO at the end of 2022. I’m 29 with a slight appetite for risk and plan to stay at this company for 2-3 years.
