Ladies, How do you feel about dating someone with a child from a previous marriage? It's bothering me for some reason - I feel badly about it, I don't know why I feel this way. It just seems like such a special connection to have with someone and makes my connection with him seem less significant. Please no mean comments, I'm just being honest and wondering what other people's experiences are. TIA

After having a pandemic baby, grinding non stop for the last year and dealing with massive understaffing cause everyone is finding new jobs - i’m done. Anyone have success talking a leave of absence at their agency and then rolling into contract/freelance work?
Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby). I want to make sure we’re protecting ourselves/the baby and our older family members who are at a higher risk. Our families live nearby so I anticipate they may want to visit frequently

I am 35 years old, and I threw my desktop keyboard at my monitor and broke both. I did this because I was playing a videogame and I didnt finish the level I needed to in the correct amount of time. I did it because I got mad other people can finish the level so easily but I cant seem to. I never feel good enough, and I think it stems from my father for 18 years telling me I am never good enough. Now I never know if I see myself as unworthy because its true or im conditioned to believe it.
We have sales people in Canada and the US, the Canadians make 150K CAD and down here it’s 150K USD, the Canadians argue they should be making 30% more than the US colleagues to be equal bc of the exchange! I explain the salary is dependent on the market data for them in Canada, WHERE THEY LIVE, and you can’t compare it to the US employees and the market data down here. Overall they are both in the 75th% for total comp. for their industry. Am I wrong?
Hey there! Currently practicing for case interviews and was wondering if anyone here would have some tips on how to improve numeracy? I'm at my third live case and I never seem to get the approach right - I get a brain fog and just dont know where to start or how to find the formula. So it's not so much about mental math, but more about algebra and finding the right formula.
