It makes me really sad to see so many young people still going out and partying. In a couple of weeks it’ll be the elderly, sick, and healthcare people who will have to carry the burden.

I am a ball of anxiety today. Started tearing up in the Uber I was in earlier cuz I thought I was about to have a panic attack. I took two lorazepam and I’m in my bed with the shades down finding something to watch on TV to calm down. I can’t slow down my brain. I’m so sick of this.

Why are teachers quitting the profession? “…it breaks you. We become emotional eaters. We become couch potatoes to zone out. We become so short fused that our families suffer.” And ultimately, that’s what led Gentry to walk away from her retirement and 46 paid sick days. “I didn’t leave for better pay,”…
Has it ever occurred that EY HR system count sick days as our PTOs. My recent sick days at all counted as vacations in EY vacation calendar and my sick day time stays as same.

How many of you in SpEd are Multiple Disability teachers with the lowest functioning population on Virtual teaching using the Canvas platform and the Enhanced Learning Program that is within the Canvas Platform? I have started putting things in place today and am finding it to be easier to get into it and follow the process with suggestions for improvements and leveled activities for the individual students. I have a lot to learn in a small increment of time. Would love to team up 🎓
Odd question, but I’m starting a new job in a few days. Am I able to use the private medical insurance at my new company straight away? Or do I have to wait for probation period to finish?
Does anyone know someone who was placed on a pip who then found a way to get on medical leave so could apply to jobs while still employed? (Idea being that you greatly extend your opportunity to look for jobs while still being able to say you’re at current firm. Example: Person gets 1 month pip, gets medical leave, then is able to look for new jobs for many months rather than 1 month. If you don’t know anyone, any opinions on how this could work?

Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?
Thoughts on life insurance? My boyfriends brother started at Northwestern. I wasn’t buying into it at first. They played it up & I fell for it but now I’m contemplating it. I have a whole life & a term life, which totals $1M, costs $230/month. I have a 401k, Roth 401k, my own investments, I receive stock yearly from my company & purchase it quarterly at a discount. I have a finance degree, I’m good with my money, I budget, frugal & very in-tune with my finances. I’m just not sure if I need it.
Apparently one of my neighbors just had a baby. Goodbye sleep. Not that we knew each other well, but it was better than nothing.

Colleague, condescendingly: "uh, I don't have any credit cards. I live within my means." Uh, I live within my means too, buddy. I just get some points/cash back in doing so 🙄💰💰💰

Has anyone bought a standing desk converter and used EY’s quality of life program to get reimbursed?
What matters more: meeting/exceeding billable requirements or doing high quality work well above your class year?
I want to understand why was Arthur Anderson kicked out of the audit business. I know they played a major part in the Enron scandal. But still these days we are seeing scandals happening. Someday we see EY name popping (Wirecard) KPMG or some other Big 4 but we still hold a strong position in the market. Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?
Everyone keeps talking about regretting not being a SWE at FAANG and earning 250k+ straight away. If you aren’t at MBB, there is a very good chance you would also have not got into FAANG

Taking a 4 month old on a cross country flight (NYC - SFO) Any tips on flight prep/time change/feeding times etc? Should I apologize in advance to other passengers?
Just got an interview for an in-house job at FAANG, but I recently accepted another job offer already. If I turn down this interview, will I ruin my chances later?
Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!
