I know this sounds weird, but I think my fiancé has my tech tapped… I journal and write short stories that I’ve used as an outlet for years. Way before I met him. Lately, it feels like he repeats things that I’ve written or said over the phone. For example, I’ll tell a friend that I want to visit her in San Diego. Then, he’ll come home and say I should visit my friend in San Diego soon. Am I paranoid or is he really listening? I feel violated and exposed. He doesn’t have a tech background.

Favorite phrases/sayings you routinely use in your practice? Mine are “The more you do, the less I do” (to a client when discussing discovery and why it saves them a lot of money to help me) and “My client would rather pay me than pay you” (when negotiating a settlement on behalf of a hospital/corporate defendant and OC discusses a “cost of litigation” demand).
I have 4 years left on my H1B and my company is about to start my green card process for the first time soon. This is my first and only job in the US and tbh I'm underpaid and always always so stressed. I really want to look for a new job. I'm sorry if this is stupid but am I stuck here or do I have time to look for a new job? If they start my perm process would it still be smart to change jobs? What's a good buffer of H1B period to leave before you need to stay put at a job?

I’ve been in-house for about 5 years now and the burnout is real.
Most of my burnout is attributed to high levels of anxiety/lack of psychological safety. Over the years I’ve encountered multiple instances of finger-pointing and backstabbing eg. escalation to front-office SVP casting blame to Legal for something gone wrong when in fact it was 80% due to their own lack of attention to detail/project mgmt skills.
Is this normal and how does one deal with it? How do I do office politics better?

Tech companies are mostly built up of 22ish-40ish year olds (not data, just how it feels) which makes sense as tech has been booming for only 20ish years. What happens in the next 10-20 years when the ones who are older for tech now, become actually old for the workforce. Do we get phased out by young people due to lack of relevancy? Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?
