Anyone else have parents who they don't look up to? Sure they worked hard and are loving, but they literally don't know anything about anything. Not worldly wise, not suave, not well spoken, not fit, no idea about nutrition, not organized, just nothing I can look up to them about. Mine are nerds and even that in an outdated skillset now. Just feel like they are a compass on what not to do. But then feel guilty for thinking that.

I’ve been offered an exciting role with Accenture, I have the contract sitting in my inbox to be signed, but my current employer KPMG are offering me a retention bonus and are guaranteeing me promotion next June/July. Could it be worth calling recruitment at Accenture to explain the situation and ask if they can do anything else for me, ie a sign on bonus… or at least to ask more questions around career progression etc? Could they reneg? I’m really stuck and can’t decide.

Like percentage wise, with the fact that I’m about 7-10K underpaid compared to other people with the current title?

Any recommendations on fun games or breaks you give your students? Recently I've really been making an effort to keep things more light-hearted while still engaging them. I think everyone appreciates it but I am running out of ideas! I remember in high school I had a stats teacher who read "random facts" to start the class - both funny and interesting!

This sounds like an exciting book! I’ll never forget when I was in elementary school how my classmates laughed at me for using “orange” to color in my self-portrait. You were either White or Black in my school and being multiracial was a unheard of. So thankful Crayola has upped its game now.
Decided to pick these babies up instead of waiting for the dusty cactus cw. Can’t wait to put them on!

I went through 2 failed cycles of IVF. The results from retrieval for both rounds were good - maybe 15-18 eggs each. When it comes time for the call, nurse tells me none of the eggs were mature. This happened twice already, and I’m so heartbroken. Anyone have similar experience??? What did you end up doing?? Doc suggested to use donor egg but im trying to look into IVM before considering donor egg. Any thoughts???
