Best tacos in San Antonio?
What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.
What was the marketing idea behind this?

In Boston for the long weekend. Just ate at Union Oyster House and the oysters were LEGIT. Not as good at 167 Raw in Charleston, but they were mighty good.

Any book recommendations to gift my cousin sister? She studied (masters) psychology and is a trained classical dancer.
Got an offer for SE III at a large tech company. Product I'd be working on interests me and I think I could grow more than in my current role.
Currently I make 180k base and have ISO/RSUs @ startup (60k/yr worth on paper, but won't be worth anything for a few years, if at all).
The offer is:
Target Bonus: 10% ($16,650)
RSU: 120k total (30k/yr)
Thoughts on offer? Should I counter?
Additionally there's a yearly target RSU bonus about equal to the cash bonus. Thoughts? 4.5 YOE
I've found relationships to be exhausting rather than energizing. Yet I'm mid 20s just letting prime years pass me by because I can't be bothered to get on dating apps or approach women in public. I can cook, keep living spaces clean, and excercise daily. But I don't drink and don't enjoy bars/clubs so have a hard time finding places to meet people naturally.

Any Deloitte fish do IVF and medical cryopreservation of embryos (not social cryopreservation - as my wife has diminished ovarian reserve)? I’m having a hard time understanding our benefits for embryo freezing. We would like to retrieve as many as possible, given diminished ovarian reserve, and would commence with IVF immediately, hoping to bank others for children two and three
As a lifelong Republican and a Trump supporter since 2015, I am now switching my vote to Biden because of his VP pick. I don’t know what it is about her, but I can’t wait to finally vote for Kamala! This is real, by the way.
I would like to buy an apartment in a southern European city where my family is from. Has anyone done this and can give advice? It would be for me to live in and as an investment property, I may get a property manager to rent it out when I’m not there. Hope to split my time between North America and Europe, or at least have it as a summer house for now.
Do you think starting school 1-2 hours later (and ending later) would have more positive or negative effects?
When do MBA students stop having time to take calls during the fall term?
The end of the year is busy with finals and the holidays, so I was hoping to finish calls with students by 12/15, but I wonder if it's best to finish calls by 12/1-12/5 instead. 😬 Asking because each school's academic calendar may be different.
I’m looking to get a new watch and have a budget of ~$6,000. Any recommendations? I currently have a Movado and a Taghuer Aquaracer.
By what multiple did you improve (or lose) your skills year over year though your career? Wholly subjective, of course.
Yr 0-1: x5 (first year learned way way more than from interning or whatever before)
Yr 1-2: x3.2 (still learned a ton, worth >3 of me from year before)
Yr 2-3: x1.2 (learned a little)
Yr 3-4: x0.6 (burnt out, worth like half of year prior)
FTE only, internships don't count

If you were 26 and starting over from scratch, ending a long relationship, leaving the home you made in a city you moved to because of your SO, what would you do to figure out what’s next? I feel like the world is wide open but I can’t even process what I should do next.
Please weigh in!
How have people tactfully established themselves as knowledgeable in areas? It seems that every time I've switched projects, people have explained things to me like I'm a new analyst (I'm not and have more YOE and have been at my company longer than most people I've worked with recently) but I have significant experience in specific tools and for some even certifications. Since I'm new to my current team, I worry jumping in saying I know something already might appear rude/not like a team player
Would this constitute a divorce?
Spouse always agrees to provide more money to his ex-wife for every scenario although he is paying a significant amount of child support. It’s so frustrating because he reduces his household contributions and doesn’t bother to change his discretionary spending even after I mention it.
I make more money so I already cover majority of the expenses. The only thing I request is that he provides his share. This time it’s a small amount but I’m sick of it.
Where can I find pants long enough for 5’10” girlies and above? Everything I buy has me in high waters. Jeans, slacks, sweats — I’m looking for all the recs!

The number of posts about bras and not having to wear them while WFH tells me there’s a big pain point and business opp’ty ladies: who wants to launch the next Unicorn company and revolutionize bras?
Significant other and I have been dating for about 6 months. We got in an argument 2 days ago and I just found out their grandparent passed away today. We haven’t spoken since our argument, but obviously want to be there for them. What’s something thoughtful/nice I can do to say I’m sorry and I’m sorry for your loss? Tbh I’m worried that our disagreement might be the end of our relationship, which I don’t want that to be the case.
What car do you drive? I want a really sexy car but Lord these cars are expensive. I was eyeing an X3 😞
Family/holidays stressing anyone else out today? Why do the holidays always feel like this. Combination of high expectations and the usual drama. 😞 I know I’m not alone in the feeling though so that helps
Help please! My wedding is soon. SOs bro has just requested a speech, they are close (ish, fake close but that’s another story). Bro is disrespectful to me/us in that he gossips behind my back, accuses me of separating SO from family, says I play victim etc. None of this is true except separation from family which is unintentional consequence of arguments about family gossip. Suck it up and ok speech/say I’m uncomfortable/confront bro/other? Thank you!
I’m 5 days out from my rhinoplasty and chin augmentation and am shocked by the results. I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner.
This is going to sound stupid, how do you quit to a senior exec? I work as a quasi chief of staff to a senior exec and I want to let him know I’m quitting. Email first? Call first? 🤷🏻♀️
For my mid-sized ladies (like size 12-16) how do you go about dating? I feel like guys aren’t into the in-between because myself and all the ladies I know of similar size are single af and don’t do well on the apps, and just get glanced over in person as soon as someone thinner walks by
Help me, I'm going through a serious case of imposter syndrome! Rolling onto a new project midway through to take over from someone much more experienced than me. It's a steep learning curve and I'm picking things up as fast as I can, but it still doesn't feel fast enough! So hard joining a team where everyone but you knows what they're doing... I just need words of encouragement and to be talked out of the "you're not doing good enough" lies my brain is telling me!
I need some inspiration for a non-engagement ring to celebrate turning the big 4-0… I think up to 10k? Any ideas ladies? You’re always so helpful!
Lately, I’ve felt really demotivated at my job. I’ve lost interest, I feel myself checking out and making mistakes. Idk why. I feel like I want to move jobs, but I don’t even know what I want to do next. I just, don’t care anymore.
Outside of work, I am blessed to have a SO who is caring and supportive. I feel like I should be happy bc I know there are so many struggling.
Anyone ever feel this way? Also, I’ve tried therapy so more so interested in hearing how others have coped. Halp 🥺
I'm that dog mom who gets mildly jealous when her dog goes to sit/sleep next to someone else instead of me.
How much details do you tell your friends about arguments you've had with your SO?
I sometimes need to vent or confide to someone about things to get a different perspective, but I feel like the norm is to not share details because then you are considered disrespectful to your SO. This makes me feel so alone and isolated.
