I’ve been working as a junior copywriter about a year. I know my job is about finding creative ideas, but I’m not sure how. I’ve been struggling a lot and questioning my creativity, since I can’t think of any idea which would win an award. I don’t even know if I’m the problem or not about this. I also couldn't talk about this with anyone. Please guide me to find ways such as senior copywriters find brilliant ideas.

Just starting auto-investment in my brokerage account w Vtsax/vfiax. I am thinking of autoinvesting $500/week on top of my regular 401k. Is this too much for someone whose takehome is ~$4K/month, with rent being ~$1500? I have enough cash sitting on my bank ($30k) so will probably live off that. Wondering if putting ~50% of income moving forward is too aggressive.

I have lost all motivation to work and I strongly believe I'm depressed. The whole project is very poorly from implementation onwards and everyone involved is just so hostile all the time. I keep thinking it's because of their work pressure but it's getting to me. No support no help but manager wants me to be a SME but no KT or support has been provided thus far. My first few years trajectory were only upwards and now it's just plummeting downwards.

I want to acknowledge as a dad of 2, we just lost our third at 12 weeks due to a missed miscarriage. We were devastated, not only by the loss but by the week long process that followed. Yet - miscarriages are not seen as a bereavement and often minimised by the well intentioned with shallow words of encouragement. We need to talk about this more.... right?

Help...my 6 mos old demands not simply to be held constantly but to also be carried around. He is only happy on his playmat or jumpy for 10 min max and then demands to be picked up. If you stop walking he begins to fuss. Days without nanny are becoming pointless voids of time and leave spouse and I with tired arms. I actually look forward to diaper changes as they are more fun. Is this normal? And if so, how long does it last? Anything I can do? Do I just let him cry and he grows out of it?
Have any families considered temporarily taking their infants out of daycare, due to virus concerns? Not trying to panic, but curious on other thoughts/opinions out there.

I’m struggling with the disparity in my work and home life - specifically how I feel listened to and respected by my work colleagues and then come home where I frequently feel ignored and treated as subordinate. It’s really dragging on me. I expect I’m not alone - have others of you found strategies to deal with this?
Expecting our first in about 6-8 weeks. Both my wife and I work at places with strong parental leave policies. We are considering staggering our leaves (I’d take a couple weeks right when the baby is born, then go back to work until her leave runs out, then go out) to save $$ on child care. Would also have a bit of family help during the first 4-6 weeks as well. Any experienced dads think this is a bad idea?
