I was caught off guard when I witnessed a lady take a monster bite of a BBQ sandwich in CLT at 6:47am and involuntarily dry heaved. Happy Monday!
Sitting in a rocking chair watching planes/people go by the big window wall at SEA while live acoustic music plays is one of those montage-like moments where time feels simultaneously fast and slow.

Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.

So I want to transfer offices, but I'm up for promotion this year. Should I wait until after consensus or does it not matter since I wouldn't move until after the review year is over?
Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?

Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
Those with heavy bonus potential: when you buy your primary residence, do you budget/ get approved for a mortgage based on base salary or total comp? Would banks approve you for more due to having bonus cash in the bank or are they strict on considering base salary only? Sorry new to home buying, NY metro area
