😖 Me (8am): hey guys, here’s some comments but they are not urgent, and today’s a holiday. Tmw is fine. Associate (930am): here u go.
even though we all have a right to use pto, is it frowned upon secretly if entry levels use all their pto?
It’s New Year’s Eve and I just found this bowl after thinking something like this would be really great. I relapsed on Christmas and I think finding this today is my higher power helping me stay strong on another holiday. Thanks to you all for being here.
I'm considering taking 3 weeks off to look for a new job and take a short (1 week vacation) in lieu of a leave of absence. Any guidance from someone who's done something similar?
Thoughts on traveling solo to either Amsterdam or Copenhagen in late august? What’s the scene like, will things be open (due to Covid and European holiday month), any other suggestions??
Who else listens to themed music while they're writing to get in the mood!? For example, Christmas music while working on holiday copy or folk music when working on a rustic client?
Am I mad to follow love instead of money? Context: 24 years old, got a great job as a commodity broker, been doing it one year now and bonus has grown substantially every quarter. Long term girlfriend (3 years) is moving to Australia in October, as of right now she thinks I am going with her. A large % of my social circle are also going. My company will probably not relocate me - our presence is tiny in Oz, meaning I can only get a working holiday visa (temp jobs). Am I mad to move for love?
Is it unprofessional, politically incorrect, or a micro-aggression to ask an Indian coworker if they celebrate Diwali? The intention is just to say happy Diwali, but I’m not sure if that’s the same as asking someone their religion, which can sometimes be seen as rude.
The only way I studied in college is by cramming. Sadly is so hard for me to get studying as it just seems like it’s so long of studying till you take the test and never ends. Have any of you guys passed FAR in a month of cramming? I’m also working but my clients are a little bit easier this time of year and have some PTO days at the end of next month. If you don’t mind sharing your studying techniques if you did pass in a month that would be awesome!

Holiday care package?! 😍😍
A friend of mine has a wedding scheduled on Sunday evening in the west coast (we are in the east coast) and my husband is saying he can’t go because he has work on Monday (not remote). He is a doctor and is saying his schedule has 0 flexibility for change. Does anyone have any insight on how credible what he’s saying is? I’m just so frustrated that he isnt even trying to change his schedule - how can something be absolutely fixed?! Do doctors just miss all life events/friend’s weddings?!
Do any of you own rentals on a beach/ina beach town? Do you solely rent to short term tenants for vacation rentals or any LT tenants?
Do you guys get anxiety about being the point of contact for all projects? Having to see everything, follow up with everyone, knowing all the ins and out? How do you take time off? I’m not a PM but I’m building a process and looking for ways to not be tied to every steps.
Has anyone tried working from home in Porto Rico, Hawaï or another US state that rhymes with vacation ? How was your experience ?
Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays

Need advice on an engagement ring. I hear 3x your monthly salary. That's more than $15k. Is that reasonable for a upper middle class ring? And do Chinese girls want 24 ct rings? Aren't they too soft?
Any firm have a decent staffing model? I hate our model, it's like I'm always kissing ass just to get on a project
I FUCKED UP ON GETTING OUT OF MY ROLE IN THIS PROJECT AND AM NOW STUCK AT THIS CLIENT FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
My daughter came downstairs in all black for school today. I asked her what she was wearing and she told me her teacher told the class to wear black because today is a sad day. Inappropriate?
That moment when you think I turned down academia so I wouldn't have to spend my life writing proposals.
Got married to my gf of 8 years while we were both in college, 4 years later I'm wondering if I should just cut ties now in case I want to divorce her later.. I'm pretty strong on the partner track &
Longest week EVER... 2am on Tues and 3am on Wed. Apologize in advance to the passenger sitting next to me. I'm crashin' all up in that seat.
