I took my mom on a $10,000 vacation to Greece this weekend because I’m 35 and single. She’s calling it the best honeymoon with her son she’s ever had. We stayed in a thousand dollar per night suite in Santorini with two rooms and a private pool. It was a surprise and she cried when she saw the room (she is a teacher and never does anything like this). I’m a loser but honestly have never had so much fun.
Does your school have a hat/hood rule?? I just don’t really see the point. I do not care at all if a student wants to wear a hat or feels inclined to put their hood up. What are everyone else’s thoughts? Should I care about this? I feel like I have bigger fish to fry this year!
Am I the only one who doesn't understand why teachers refer to the students as "friends"?
Ways to ultivate optimism: 1. Reframe. What if this (challenge) isn't happening TO you, it's happening FOR you? 2. Refocus. You can choose on what to train your attention. If the watching the dumpster fire is not serving you, choose differently. 3. Embrace growth. Lean in to the feedback of your struggles with acceptance and curiosity. In the face of the feedback of failure, be as kind to yourself as you would a friend. Setbacks happen. Baby-steps count too. https://inservice.ascd.org/how-educators-can-cultivate-optimism-in-the-new-year/
Dating a guy who makes less than me and I invariably have more lifestyle type expenses than him (e.g., higher gym costs, etc.). He said to me “I don’t think I can afford your lifestyle”. How should I respond to this?

We recently find out we’re pregnant and I’m worried about how we are going to balance parenting and work. We are both in consulting and first time parents to be with no family to rely on. Any advise? Is it doable? How do you manage work in consulting while parenting?
married with 3 year old kid and wife does not want to get intimate anymore. Is this Desi thing ? How do you make it work ?
What has been your experience with taking maternity leave? Do you feel like it has held you back with career advancement (e.g. making partner)?
Is there any hope for husbands to understand how hard and exhausting it is to be a mom? Or do we just need to assign them specific tasks to help manage things?
A friend of mine has a wedding scheduled on Sunday evening in the west coast (we are in the east coast) and my husband is saying he can’t go because he has work on Monday (not remote). He is a doctor and is saying his schedule has 0 flexibility for change. Does anyone have any insight on how credible what he’s saying is? I’m just so frustrated that he isnt even trying to change his schedule - how can something be absolutely fixed?! Do doctors just miss all life events/friend’s weddings?!
How do i even start the divorce conversation with my husband? I don’t think we are a good match anymore. We have 1 child. Have tried it all, counseling , church etc. He has a very explosive personality and is also verbally abusive when angry (which is often), and has anger management issues. Small example: he was drunk and angry and broke my work laptop. When he’s not drunk or angry he can be a lovely person. Most of our issues happen when he’s angry or drunk. I am just over it and I think
I just unexpectedly found out I am pregnant. I’m not married and my bf and I have been together for about 2.5 years. I’m terrified and pretty sure I will have to transition out of my job. Contd
Fiancée (woman) wants to keep her hyphenated name after her previous divorce because she likes it better and wants to keep using it for her career/personal brand. Fiancé (man) thinks keeping it hyphenated is disrespectful to him, does not see how shortening a hyphenated name detracts from personal branding, would prefer she only use her maiden name going forward, and does not want her to adopt own last name once married. Who do you side with?
What advice would you give to a your kid in the beggining of his/her career that you wish someone gave it to you in the beggining of your career?
Apparently one of my neighbors just had a baby. Goodbye sleep. Not that we knew each other well, but it was better than nothing.
Been with my gf for a number of years now and we’re talking about marriage. She told me today that she wants me to take her last name. Like, it’s whatever but honestly I wasn’t even asking her to take mine, just figured we’d both keep our own last names and now im a little confused/uncomfortable. She thinks it’d be super progressive for me to do, and is really dedicated to what seems like a recently acquired idea. Not sure how to handle this.
Watched ‘The Last Dance’ last night. What I wouldn’t give to go back to being a kid in suburban Chicago in the late 90s...
Ladies who have IUDs: Did it hurt, how much time did you take off to recover, and is it worth it. I’m so weirdly scared about getting one but my periods are so painful! I don’t know what else to do.

How do you guys actually deal with the stress from our jobs? And please don't give me the "I work out" or I "Go for runs" tropes..that stuff does not help with the day to day stress of our industry. How do you guys deal with it on a daily basis?
WFH Home office setup stipend - How are your companies doing it? I know BCG gvae $250 and Bain monitor/keyboard + $150 for ergonomics, curious about other consulting firms
Our base salary increases were cut in half and bonuses cut by a third. MBB should be renamed BMB
Quick reactions when you see a guy wearing a Rolex. (Don’t overthink the intent of this message, it is just for my own curiosity, thanks for amusing me)
I feel like Bain is moving futher away from MBB. I find BCG very similar to the Firm but Bain feels like a different animal now. Time for KPMG to step up? I love to be proven wrong because I like MBB
