Have anyone taken flight lessons before?
TTP vs Magoosh for Verbal? I find Manhattan books to be too dry for me and need video lessons.
How do you turn in your lesson plans?
At family reunion and playing Monopoly Deal (first to $1M wins) with younger cousins. Crushed them. Teaching life lessons. 👌
Hey fellow Disney Lovers, I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements. What are some of your favorite shorts? I am trying to incorporate activities where my students get to choose their own clips for independent practice with these skills and need a variety to draw from.
Got an email “reminder” that weekly lesson plans are due Monday morning. I’m tired. I want to reply “no” because I don’t have time to make detailed lesson plans on their template...for lessons that I won’t follow...for a curriculum they haven’t given me yet....But I should probably just ignore it until I’m less tired so I don’t let my mouth get me in trouble. Do y’all turn in lesson plans?
And after the cacophony on Hathras dies down, the facts that now emerge are very different. Lesson #9999 - never ever believe Delhi centric media reports especially if a crime has allegedly happened in a Bjp ruled state (facts inside)
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?
A very hearty thanks to everyone who attended the live with Eva and I last week. Your questions, ideas, and feedback were so thoughtful. I took notes and looking over them this week reminded me of how much we can lift each other up. By seeing the awesome in others and telling them By sharing our struggles and ask for insight By really listening and responding with care Be sharing our salaries, our contacts, and our lessons Thanks again!
Almost got hit by a car crossing a street because I was too busy chortling at a FB post 😐😐😐 instead of paying attention. Lesson learned.
Anyone here ever worked with a vocal coach? I need recommendations for a lesson or two before auditioning for a pseudo professional chorus group...

I’m a CPA/FA and want to sit for the CFP exam. When I took the CPA I used CPAExcel and I loved it bc it broke down the material into “bite sized” lessons. Anything like that for CFP? Continued..
It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.
I want to learn how to play tennis. Has anyone on here taken lessons while living in NYC?
Have you ever run into a situation where you asked for more money (either a raise or when negotiating an offer) and you got it and regretted it? What are the strings attached to more $?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Microsoft 🐠 - how should one best prepare for the hiring loop? Sounds nerve wrecking to do full/half day of interviews back to back. What should I expect? Any tips or tricks?

Watched Duckweed on Delta Studio. Was so unexpectedly good! Cinematic gold. High recommend if you're bored on the plane.
Chase UR is migrating systems, so they might not be able to find recent rewards bookings. Ask for a specialist if you have that issue - saved me a lot of time!

Recruiter wanted to call to discuss feedback from second round interviews. Likelihood it's good or bad news?
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
29 F with 7 years of work ex considering MBA in 2022 and could use your help in planning. How many years of work ex did you have before you gave MBA a shot and how much financial aid did you get? I def want to do this but slightly worried about taking up hefty loans again.

I’ve been dealing with a lot in a few aspects of life - family, breakup, and work pushing me into an undesirable role…it has started to exhibit in physical symptoms like depression, insomnia, and fainting spells. I would like to take a short-term disability leave, but am afraid of the consequences and the fact it only pays 2/3rds of my salary. Any advice?
The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
