Has anyone experienced putting your “ambitious career” on hold for a few years to raise a child? Spouse is serious about one of us not working intensely during infant years, but is worried since we both have big goals
To all of those who were laid off (including me), take the silver linings. You will no longer work almost as hard as IB while getting paid 1/3 as much. Hate to get religious here, but when God shuts a door, he opens a window. Take this opportunity to try something you’re actually interested in. It’s a long life, one job does not make or break! I for one am feeling better by the hour. Why work for a firm that doesn’t care about you or your time? Fresh start, new day. Let’s roll baby.
gf.me/u/iwzdit For any other Desi fish that can help, this kid could use it. Every little bit counts
I wish some parents in our community would take responsibility for their kids' actions instead of praising the kid when they did something wrong: https://youtu.be/RliKsJlRUJo
As a Muslim, brown man living in NYC, days like yesterday give me severe anxiety. This isn't what I expected life to be like when I was a kid.

My best friend threw me a surprise (zoom) baby shower...she put SO much time & effort into coordinating everyone, making it special, coming up with games (and giving out prizes out of her own pocket). I want to send her something as a thanks, but not sure what. Any ideas? Obviously nothing like salon/spa/restaurant gift card due to COVID, which would have been what I’d give her in normal times.

Need to vent but, how can people be able to afford a house that can only eat 25% of their monthly income? we live in a HCOL area and the houses in a good school districts are +400K (these houses are 1 hour away from DC too).

Baby is 4 months old and we’ve been intimate once on Valentine’s Day. I’m crying all the time because of lack of a sex life .. is this normal? Will it past?
I’ve been struggling on whether or not I should talk to my boss about one of my assignments. I am an entry level HR analyst with one year of professional experience and she has tasked me with leading a strategic agency-wide project. This entails procuring a consultant, directing work of our senior analysts, leading a cross functional team to implement the project, point person, managing project timeline and deliverables, updating our policies and procedures to integrate the project, etc. To me, this is senior level work and should be done by the more senior analysts who have experience in this area. I understand it can be a great learning opportunity but feeling nervous. Thoughts?

What's the deal with severance pay in New York State? I've heard both it's not required and I've heard it's required to pay 3 weeks for every year of employment. Anyone know what the real deal is?
Fish fam could use some help. Have been extremely demotivated lately and slipped a bit on deadlines the past 2 weeks. Nothing actually missed, just not as responsive/quick on the turnaround as usual or needed reminders for status updates on items. Manager set up time for a chat tomorrow, pretty sure it’s to address these “performance issues”. What’s the best way to respond in a credible way beyond “sorry, will pick it up”. If pushed for a reason, what do I say beyond “exhausted and disengaged”?
