Start studying for the GMAT so I can get into bschool. I also want to buy an investment property so I can have a passive income while in bschool. Finally, I want to do a half marathon once large events are able to be held again, so this one may end up dragging into 2022 😂.

Why Bschool? You are already at big D!

1) Lose 25 lbs by my friend's wedding (I'm a bridesmaid) in mid September so I look better when I have to see a bunch of people from high school that I haven't seen in 15 years. I've never really tried to lose weight before, but I definitely put on the pandemic 15.

2) Secure promotion to MD this year.

@McK6 I had been trying for years and had steadily been changing my diet, but things accelerated with the pandemic. Here were some of my techniques in broad strokes:

- Used the pandemic to reset eating habits (not being on the road and doing my own groceries was a game changer - basically had an 80/20 rule for clean / healthy shopping vs ordering and eating out)

- Drastically reduced animal protein intake and going mostly Pescetarian with my diet

- Replaced beer with wine and scotch (and reduced consumption in general due to fewer team dinners / airport beers etc...and actually having to pay for alcohol was a deterrent!)

- Accidentally started 16/8 intermittent fasting (seemingly always on Zoom meetings to start the pandemic and wasn't eating until noon anyway - been at this 10 months now)

- Creating a morning workout routine and turning it into a habit (was also working out in a fasted state which I'm sure accelerated fat burn)

I never tracked calories or anything, but I guarantee I was in a significant calorie deficit as a result of my fitness output.

Good luck with your journey!

*from women's perspective*

Also includes my personal opinions

- We are just as insecure about life and other things and not some perfect beings. I feel like a lot of resentment that men feel towards women can be resolved by understanding that women are just people
- We like s€x as much as men do but we don't want to be reduced to a s€x object, so we don't bring it up that often or try to avoid it

I think I'm getting played by HR.

I have cleared all their rounds, I have agreed for the CTC as well.

Now,

HR says that they will release the offer letter today itself. I waited but nothing.

next day...

Again the same thing "Today you will get but nothing"

next day...

Offer letter approval is pending with some manager in America.

next day...

Hiring manager has to get approval form CEO.

Friends am I getting played here? can I trust them? I feel something is going on inside.
