Now that I’m back to work after a lovely week off, I realise how important LIFE is (there is more to life than just work)

Agreed. Build a career that helps you live the life you want now, not in 20 years. Sure, I can FIRE quicker with a remote role by living in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but there are quality of life trade offs and life is not simply a cost optimization problem

Dealing with students & their pro-nouns is something no one ever prepared me for as a teacher.

We have kids who want to be called something other than what their biology is or what their parents named them and their parents don’t want us calling them that.
We are told to do what the student wants by the county.

To get around this, I just call them by their last name. I call multiple students by their last name so it’s nothing uncommon for me.

What is your school or counties policy on this?

Hi folks, Have been approached for a role at EY in London and while seems interesting, it's the other end of the table - so no real view on actual remit (vs. descriptor) and comp.

Any wholesale property marketing brokers here? I’ve been feeling kind of overworked & kind of exploited lately… mostly due to my people pleasing personality and not being able to say no. I am working on at least 10-20 new business accounts and another 10-20 renewals each month. Revenue on the renewals alone are around $100-200k per month. On top of marketing, I also have to service a few larger accounts that are difficult. My salary is in the $70k range and I feel it’s a bit on the low end…

Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether. Does anybody else feel the same way? (Contd).
