I just turned 24 and paid off my student loans earlier this year so now I’m looking at additional retirement fund/savings options. I have a pretax 401k and I’m thinking of adding a Roth IRA. I’ve done some research on the Roth conversion ladder and it sounds like these would have me in a good position? Any advice welcomed!

How long does it take to hear from Google with a referral for a non technical role? I applied ~ 4 weeks ago as of tomorrow and the job I applied to isn’t up anymore and I applied within three business days of it being up. I’m just trying to see how long it takes to hear a rejection because that’s probably what it is. For FB, I heard within a week for a rejection when I applied for a referral about ~1.5 weeks.

My husband suggested a gender reversal role play the other night (ie I (a female) dress in the traditionally masculine way and he dress as a woman) - he seemed really nervous suggesting it. In the same night he asked me to paint his nails with clear polish - is this him exploring his gender expression? How seriously do I take this? What can I do to support him if this is the case without making him feel threatened? Also, would appreciate any help in how to think about this myself as I want cont.

As part of unit reorganization due to economic slowdown, a couple of months ago, my temporary contract was not renewed, even if my feedbacks were excellent. Do you think that it would be better to “lie” in the cv and during interviews telling that I am still working for the employer or it is better to tell the truth saying that currently I am unemployed, even if there could be some biases due to the working statement? And how it would be a nice way to justify the unemployment statement?
