I read to the kids a book that ended with a line like, "If it was a good story, start all over."I told the kids I really only did that once in my life regarding a book about a teacher going to teach in Africa. In reality it was about a missionary. I hid the name of it and what it really was about. In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?

How do you deal with a boyfriend who is going through a rough time career wise? I've recently achieved some career milestones - things are going well for me. The opposite can be said for my boyfriend. I told him this week would be busy and I couldn't spend time with him and he's pouting and throwing a tantrum like a big baby. It's a huge turn off. Any suggestions on how to handle? He's normally pretty supportive so this recent outburst is surprising.

Audit S2 thinking of leaving for a boutique M&A firm in the next month (total comp is ~30% higher) I'd rather go into deal advisory at KPMG to keep consistency on my resume, and am willing to work through this busy season to do it but also just haven't heard of almost anyone transitioning out of audit considering how understaffed we are. Dick move or should I discuss it with my PML saying I got the offer? (for context i've only talked to him ~twice cuz i joined remotely during covid)

I’m 5 years into my role (post under grad) and struggling to figure out what to do next. I want to job hop, and try something new, but not entirely sure what. I’m an Teams implementation consultant, and have mostly been doing implantations/Teams work for 5 years, but I don’t want to do this forever. I like the idea of UX, UX research, or some kind of SWE design work, maybe even Product Management. I’m all over the place, how did you find what you wanted to do next/start the job process?

Currently a second-year associate at a regional firm. I have become really unhappy with the life-style at a firm and the constant stress of meeting my billable requirements. It was always my goal to go in-house, but I know I likely lack the requisite experience to make a move somewhere that can offer meaningful advancement. Any advice? I know it will likely be that I need to “stick it out” for a few more years, but I am just extremely dissatisfied with the prospect of being at a firm for years.
Last spring, none of my students took online learning seriously because they didn't receive an official grade. I'm scared that's going to happen again, but I also don't want to have to grade every assignment. Tips?
