Just got my first promotion of my career and with it about a $15k salary increase. I want to put most, if not all to retirement. I already max my Roth IRA, 401k and HSA. Are there any other specific accounts or things I should be doing with this money or should I just put it all into a brokerage?
Anyone feel lost/sad that this is your life? Not to be dramatic, bc there are so many things to be grateful for in my life. But, I just feel like this job sucks the soul out of me. I work long hours, no end in sight, feels very thankless, and like I have no actual purpose.
Sometimes I just feel like, “how did I get here?” And I’m not sure how to get out. I’m just overall bummed out. Maybe it’s the “pandemic burnout”. I just feel like there has got to be more to life than working 60+ hr weeks.
I am having around 3.6 yoe in mainframe.
I am looking forward to move to aws cloud.
Can anyone please suggest the starting steps?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Holidays are rough. Lots of grief and loss. All of my abusive relationships were in the winter-ptsd. A lot of past trauma around this time. Then , family trauma. Whenever I go home for the holidays, I regress and turn back into the little girl people used to emotionally and verbally abuse, exclude and reject/abandon. Any advice on self care? Or similar experience with family?

I’m looking for a new job!! It has been impossible to build a good relationship with my manager, he isn’t transparent with me and never provides any constructive feedback so I have no idea how I’m performing. I recently asked for a raise since I completed all my assigned projects for this year plus a few that I took on due to resignations and was denied with no reason. I’m so checked out and looking for a new job and manager that I can learn from and will help me grow, any help is appreciated!

Just watched Social Dilemma and recognize I am fully part of the problem (8+ hrs a day on social media). I deleted all my apps and had my first 24 hours without social media.

Maybe: drawing, woodwork, crafts, dancing, etc. Any suggestions?
