Question: My boyfriend has been telling me and friends/family that he is going to propose “soon.” I told him that’s wonderful, but it’s starting to cause me anxiety because friends/family think there is going to be a proposal every single event because of the word “soon.” Today he let it slip that he doesn’t even plan for it to be in 2021 after about 6 months of waiting because he wanted to do an international trip? I’m older and the nature of the proposal isnt important. Anyway (contd below)

4) Find when apps usually open
I’m in Deloitte Human Capital (commercial) and very anxious to find a new opportunity. Senior consultant. Help?
I’m really discouraged. My after tax / after 401k contributions etc. take home pay is $6,500 monthly. I have $60,000 in savings / stocks for a down payment but even looking at a $550,000 home, my monthly payment would be about $3,400 from the calculators I’ve been using. Is that too high?
So discouraged that houses where I live are about 50% higher than what they were 2 years ago, and now interest rates are around 5.25% for my credit score. This is like a 1750 sq foot home

My cat been throwing up sporadically on weekly or bi weekly basis a few years ago and the vet placed him on a hydrolyzed protein diet and ensured that everything is fine with him. The change in diet did not help him much and he just threw up three times in a week. Anyone here has any experience/tips on cats’ frequent vomiting? He threw up mostly undigested food.

30s before the airplane door closed, a chick decided she wanted off our flight (no reason given; SD-JFK) She gate checked her bag & the FAs said the bag was not going to be removed. Seems unsafe. 😓
Checked in for my flight tomorrow and they’re already asking for volunteers to take a different flight home Thursday .

Career advice- if you had the option to either join Strategy/Finance at a big tech or work there as a SWE what would you do? Was offered those choices or stay DS or become PM at my current T2 tech co. I see lots of people with big TC in the first group at FAANG but I’m still not sure what finance does, they’re all ex MBB/IB folks
Currently dealing with an account where we have meetings when the client core team every single week for validation and they agree that the content we’ve developed is exactly what they’re looking for. The week before our project roll off, one stakeholder mentioned that she doesn’t agree with the content and now the entire core team is agreeing with her and is tearing our content apart. What would you do in this situation? (Other than drink wine and rage quit)

Super nice that all these companies are offering to reimburse their employees travel for abortion services, but I feel bad since we are not the ones who really need it. Typically corporate employees can find a way to pay to get the services they need. Low income people not so much.
Am looking at exit opportunities and researching FAANG. Curious to understand why anyone would join Amazon which has the worst benefit of the FAANG? Can anyone share what’s better at Amazon that I am not aware of? Amazon and Facebook on sites lined up in January! So researching now!;)
