Question - if you found a relatively sound strategy to generate 1.5-2% in returns weekly by way out of the money puts. Would you prefer that over buying options and investing in equity. Why or why not?

Is it me or does the newer generation value more intangible things that aren’t easily measured like work-life balance, fulfillment and purpose in work. Which makes it difficult for firms because that’s not something that is easily measured. Also, this is why there is “value” in crypto, NFTs and the metaverse. It’s a clash of the generations that value tangible things like money, houses, cars and one that values time, experiences, personal online image. Thoughts?

Any recommendations for really good sound machines to completely block out loud noise? I live in the North End and am so angry…loud drunk assholes yelled in the street last night and woke me up (even with my loud AC on which typically blocks out most noise) and it took me forever to fall back asleep and sleep quality was terrible because I was on edge.

Is it weird for partners of a firm to ask their staff what the company values should be? I thought this should be from the leaders at top. We had meetings where everyone would discuss this and from there the company named their values. It’s like the leaders don’t know what they’re doing or maybe they do.

Started onboarding for a gig assignment 2 weeks ago that I voluntarily accepted. After getting a taste of the new work + performing my full-time responsibilities, I’ve decided to meet with the gig manager tomorrow to let her know I don’t want to continue. I’ve been feeling burnout and mentally capped because of COVID fatigue and WFH. Feeling anxious about sharing my decision and need advice on how to approach the conversation. Thanks!

When my boyfriend talks about a challenge / problem hes having, after hes done I chime in and give my opinion - ex: boyfriend has a choice of 2 bosses, he tells me his approach and I tell him mine (that complements his but expanded). His response is always negative - “why do you always have to give your opinion?” “Why can’t you just listen” “I wasnt looking for a solution from you, just wanted someone to hear this…I’m so used to helping my friends and family but he doesnt want to hear this..why?

My boyfriend is away for 2 weeks in a different time zone and limited cell service. While he’s been gone I’ve gotten a lot of unsolicited relationship advice from friends/family. A lot of which is making me insecure about the relationship, which isn’t something I ever feel when we’re together

I’ve let on to a bit of how I’m feeling when we have chances to talk, but I also don’t want to worry him or ruin his trip. I’m just getting so overwhelmed, I don’t know how to get out of my head about it

Hi ladies, in need of perspective. My sister & one of our close friend’s birthday overlap. I decided to treat them to a trip. I covered travel & shelter cost and asked they just take care of their own meals . Ofc I let them know this before and we were all cool. We had an amazing time! It was so fun and a trip to remember! At the end of the trip, the day before our flight home my friend asked me to send her the flight information.

I live with my SO who I’ve been dating almost a year and a half. Everything’s been great, the spark just isn’t there as much.

Has anyone had this happen before? What did you do?

Both guys have told me I’m someone they would marry. I could see myself with both/either, and am feeling conflicted/terrible.
