My goals used to always involve reading books. Then I just realized I do not enjoy reading and it was futile. So now I focus on what I enjoy: mountaineering, self improvement (avoiding the comparison trap, leadership, being a better girlfriend and friend, etc), and playing more volleyball. And for Pete's sake, staying away from processed foods. Success looks different to everyone. Checking the boxes above is my success.

Booking a trip to ATL in a few months. I have Alaska Air MVP Gold. They are phasing in their oneworld membership throughout 2021, but it’s not clear to me what benefit, if any, I’d get from booking an AA flight via AS’s website (ie “marketed as an Alaska flight, but operating as AA”). I think these would count as partner miles, not Alaska miles, even though it’s purchasedart AS. This would be my only non-Alaska flight so partner miles are less useful than Alaska miles. Am I missing something?

Now my dream job is a housewife. I enjoy cooking, cleaning and decorating the house. I can spend a day by working out, walking my dog and volunteering in my community. I can offer free foreign language lessons to the kids. I can prepare delicious and healthy meals for my unknown future hubby and giving him a massage every weekend. I wanna be a housewife if someone really loves me and would like to spend the rest of life with me. Wake up, girl 😂 BYW, I’m serious. A lady in 40s in NY.
