If you have FDD experience then they’ll spend time understanding your experience. Plus a case study for that level. It’s a really great culture overall and typical wlb associated with FDD work. Good luck!!!

My husband and I get along great on the weekends - we are amazing cohosts, we love to go out together, we find eachother compelling and charming. We also do well in “emergencies” - when one of us is sick or we a specific tough issues. But it feels like every weeknight is a tense and unpleasant chore of “who will make this decision about dinner/tv/how much time we should spend together in the evening vs doing our own thing” and I just feel like I can’t stand him only to be in love again Friday…

Hi ladies! I’m 32 years old and I feel like I have no style. I went from buying going out party clothes in my early 20s to buying work clothes and oversized black and gray sweaters by the time I turned 30. I want to cultivate a feminine chic style (almost French style) and was wondering if anyone had any brands they loved.

Last week, I've voluntarily put in some overtime to craft an amazing project I am working on. For the love of the project, and because I feel it will be good for my career. While talking with some people a few days later, someone told me: "By doing that, you are helping to maintain a system where hard work and occasional overtime is expected of everyone." It led to an insane lecture about my work ethic. Is that person right? Should I feel guilty about doing that?
