So I’ll be receiving a ~120k USD lump sum next spring. If you were in my shoes, would you: A) Purchase a ~350K home (in Orlando) with 20% down. Remaining 50k in stock market B) Just DCA it all into market Further context: Will likely be at grad school for 1.5-2 years following that. Will have an income from scholarship stipend but it'll only cover expenses. Also unsure how that'd work with mortage application if I don't have an ability to provide proof of income.
SO and I are asking a weekend trip to San Diego from Chicago in early feb. Best SPG property? Don’t really care about luxury, more convenience and location. Also do we need a car? Thanks!

Any Kearney fish with insights on the Southeast Asia offices? Specifically interested in culture, compensation (compared to the US consulting)
Metro just released a survey. If you all have 5 minutes to take the survey it would help to gauge recovery efforts. It talks about a new station(Potomac Yard) , the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus, asking if you have an Android or iPhone for touch-less payments, as well as any feedback for how comfortable you feel or any suggestions to offer regarding the health and safety of riders.

Father's Day gift ideas? Go
would you take a 1 year long contracting role (hourly with no benefits and no RSUs) if the hiring manager said they want to make this a FTE and know they need a team, but just need to make a business case with a contractor before going to the head honchos. very attracted to the company and the people ive interviewed so far
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
Got an offer from MBB, but I’d be starting fresh—no tenure. Are the exit ops worth me giving up 2 years of tenure?
*omg* logged into chase account and saw I was approved for CSR. Small wins on a Sunday :)

Anyone know what the culture and hours is like for Expedia international tax group? I’m currently working in public and want more WLB and wondering if Expedia would be the right place for that. Thank you!
Are exit interviews ever effective in any way? They are asking me for one but what is the point? They didn’t change before, they are not going to change now.
Going on vacation to Europe. Looking for comfortable shoes that won’t hurt from walking all day, don’t look ugly (with nice dresses/clothes), and can perhaps even be considered for wearing to nice places (eg dinner, bars). Probably asking for a lot here but please let me know suggestions! Don’t want to take 4 pairs of shoes for a one week trip 🙂

Got notified that my EAD card is being delivered to my place. Didn’t submit my medical record with I-485 so I’m hoping to receive the RFE for that soon now that EAD is almost here. Has anyone been in the similar situation and did the medical exam before receiving the RFE? Is that allowed? Wanna try to mail out my medical exam as soon as I receive the RFE to cut down time!
