Time to replace my 12+ year old Travelpro bags. They've held up well for multiple international moves and regular travel but are having some problems now. What are some brands or specific bags to consider? I'd prefer light, soft cases. Bonus points if the bag doesn't look too expensive. I'm small, female, and often travel alone. Don't want to be a target when I'm on the road.

When you’re negotiating a higher compensation for an outstanding job offer, what are your selling points? How do you explain why you should be paid more than what was offered?
We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?

Hi, I'm already holding an offer of 8.5 fixed from Org1. And, after being interviewed by Cognizant, the HR said she can only offer me 7 fixed 20K variable. Seriously? All she's saying is that it's based on my current CTC (3.79 fixed+20K variable = 3.99). Exp: 2 YOE. Technology: Informatica IDQ, SQL, UNIX Please help me here. My expected was 11 LPA based on the offer I'm holding. It's really depressing that the offer I'm being given by CTS is even lower than what I'm having.

I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.

Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
If you've recently been laid off or furloughed and we've worked together in the past or I know you personally, don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know so I feel better knowing I’m employed and you’re not - Can I put you in touch with sleazy recruiters? - Can I write a LinkedIn recommendation for you since those help land high paying jobs?

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.
