I just reached the point where I make 150k and can save $25,000 a year. I’m 33 and do not plan on having kids. My only major expense is a $560,000 mortgage remaining (2.8k per month expense). Any advice on how to apply that $25,000 a year to reach retirement as early as possible?

I confess that I visit HUGE website at least once a week. I inspect their content, and their code. The fact that they use a cat or a gif with some random old cartoon as a thumbnail for a Google or Nike project makes me tremendous jealous.
Desis and others from traditional cultural communities: how do you deal with dating within your community when the men you date have dated friends or acquaintances in the past, and how do you know they want to be with you and aren’t just filling criteria? Hope this question makes sense.
Parenting question..my kid loves golf and swings his club daily after school. When his friend comes over, the friend tends to hit our house with golf balls. After being reprimanded a couple of times, the friend hit the house again and dented siding (again). I texted the mom asking to tell her kid not to hit golf balls at my house. It was a tactful message. Her response was..a. their house has many dents and she replaced her siding 3 times, and b. it was not on purpose. How would you respond back

Does anyone know where I can find basic ESL worksheets for newcomers that aren’t British? I just got a few new students whose English is about zero. Thankfully I speak their language (I am the only one in the school who does) but I wanted to start them on basic vocabulary (colors, foods, school supplies etc) and basic grammar. But a lot of the worksheets I find are designed for people learning British English and I don’t want to confuse my students because the vocabulary is different.
I’m about to quit my job with nothing new lined up. Im excited for the break…but also can’t shake the feeling that I won’t end up landing a new job. I’ve never taken a risk/leap like this in my life (I’m the kind of person who usually has a Plan B and Plan C). Just feeling scared today

I’d want to make sure the clients stay through the transition, and I don’t want to join a dying industry. Thoughts and advice?
