I made SC at a Big 4 in 2 years after undergrad. I'm in APAC and work in Program Delivery + Business Analysis of Tech implementation projects. I don’t want to be in this field as I don’t find it fulfilling nor is it prestigious enough for me to stick it out. What exit opportunities can I consider? So far I’ve narrowed down doing strategy at MBBs or investing as a VC. Or should I just stick it out till Partner? In the long run I’d like to be a great CEO and if not, maybe okay/good investor.

Went on a date that was around the corner from the guy’s apartment. We drank a good amount and I was a bit tipsy. It was a little past midnight and he walks home and leaves me on Canal Street.

Yes, I said I would get a cab but it’s also after midnight, freezing cold, I’m tipsy, in heels, etc.

I don’t care if I split a bill but for god’s sake, ensure your date gets in a car home. Even if you aren’t calling her again or whatever, wait for the freaking cab with them.

End rant.
