Weekend house. Get to keep your short commute and get all the benefits of being out of the city when you have free time. Not like you’re enjoying a yard in the week anyway. IMO going to the suburbs you still compromise based on commute / price. Weekend house further out than the suburbs gets you better outdoors for less money.

I signed an offer for Strategy & Analytics with D, but they put me into Oracle ERP implementations when I joined. I’m not interested in doing this at all, and I’m not sure if I should try to go through university recruiting again for a role I actually want or shoot for experienced hire roles. I do know I absolutely won’t continue to work for Deloitte after all the misleading lies. Completely over it here.

For staff specifically, is WFH making you feel extra lost and unsure due to the relative lack of experience, especially in-person and in-office experience?

A good friend had to cancel her wedding this year cause covid but with the virus relatively under control in NYC, they decided to move ahead with a socially distanced, small wedding ceremony of just 20 friends (in a tent outdoors) and only 2-4 ppl per table. Masks required. I am living with my parents right now and debating if I should go or not. The couple was really understanding and did say they would not be offended if I chose not to go. Thoughts?

Have a condo (1BD/1BTH) I’m considering selling. Would profit $100k+ after fees and taxes. Do I sell now as it’s obviously a sellers market? Or hold in anticipation of a continued upward trend? Invested $7,500 initially when I bought the place. Would hate to sell if market continues to surge. I don’t need the cash and I would plan to park the money somewhere in the market until I purchase a single family when the market goes back down. Thoughts?

I need advice ... So I gave my friends my password to this course that cost me like 4K & my other friend was telling me I should have charged them for it since they’ll be benefiting from it. I changed my password the next day and now a couple months later my friend is asking what happened to it. I feel guilty but also feel like I should have asked for $ to give them access. Should I tell her I changed my mind and charge her? Tell a white lie..or just give it to her for free?
