Yday during a virtual happy hour event an intro question was, “what have you bought this year that’s made you happy.” I said “someone told me to get a mac”. i feel insanely guilty bc the someone i referred to, is my GF and i feel insanely horrible. I did just tell her and i’m seeing her tmo but anything i can do on my end? This isn’t something i’ve done before and i’ve brought her up many times beforehand 🥺
Thoughts on Zoom job interview dress code? My instinct is a tailored dress or nice blouse. I feel like a blazer could come off as too formal but curious to know your thoughts/if anyone here has experience. Thanks in advance!
To the person on my company slack who said "welcome back! Was just telling <my skip level boss> how we haven't spoken to you since you went on Mat Leave and that was a long time ago". Please don't say this. I know you area nice person and trying to say I was missed and you are glad I'm back. But it translates to 'you been gone forever' and 'your mat leave was too long'.
The guy I am dating is nice but too busy. He tries to call me for the 10 minutes window he got. A part of me want to cut all slack and just be available and take it as-is. The other part feels, (contd

Have any of you come across a good app or computer add on for recording audio of Webex / Zoom meetings? I don’t want to the attendees to know they’re being recorded, the recordings would be only for me to go back and refer to.
I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)

Apologies if this is a silly question - New analyst here and trying to get a handle on my finances and retirement portfolio. I’m familiar with the rough sequence of saving being: 3-6 months HYSA, Company match 401k, Roth IRA, HSA, 401k max, personal brokerage (Pls correct me if i’m incorrect here). My question is: Are you expected to invest as much money as you can into each step before proceeding to the next, or do you allocate a portion of your paycheck to each of these steps simultaneously?
