You do need a car and traffic does blow but i don't know why you wouldn't live close to work. I live and work in Santa Monica. Best believe driving my tesla down pch beats riding the subway

@JPM1 - population of attractive people has been similar in my experience. Yea the traffic sucks, but you get used to scheduling around it and you just plain get used to it (a fun car helps). Living close to your work makes the biggest difference, unless your office is somewhere that sucks.

@jpm1 - and rent is way, way cheaper... I used to say that rent in NYC = rent in LA plus your car luxury car payment for half the space.

Regardless, the company values the layman's point of view more than mine. I do not feel appreciated by this company in my current role.

Hi Moms, sadly my parental leave is coming to a quick end and I will be returning to work in June. Sometimes I look forward to it but most days I do not. I would love to hear any tips or advice or words of encouragement on how to prepare myself (and my little one) for the transition back to work and other things like setting WL boundaries, blocking off time to pump during the day, figuring out who I am as a first time working mom, etc. Thank you!

Not bragging or showing off, but our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses. Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying out mortgage & bills and then a further £2k in corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't even spend a penny during the black Friday sales
