...when does the fun start? Currently doing recruiting and school 24/7 and a 2 hour Happy Hour catch-up with a classmate outside in the freezing cold means I will sleep 4 hours tonight instead of 6 hours because of the crushing amount of work to do.

Establish priorities and go from there. Seems like you have too many rn which isn’t sustainable

Priority: Tech PM or PMM

Opportunity: Ability to network, apply, and interview at more companies than ever before. Lower opportunity cost when prioritizing recruiting due to less of a social scene right now.

Challenge: Other students are in the same boat plus the uncertainty of getting an interview (have been rejected from companies I’ve been referred to). Add this to the uncertainty of which company will post what type of internship and how many interns they will take.

Result: Casting a wide net, juggling many varied opportunities, and going all in on as many opportunities as possible. Classes are deprioritized but still take time. Social life is deprioritized except for the limited human interaction to preserve mental health.

Didn’t grow up with a lot of money, which forced my parents to be very frugal raising me. Seeing how differently they got treated when going to buy things they had saved for, versus the people who came in with obvious cash is something I’ll never forget. So now any time i go buy anything expensive I always dress way down, and be mindful of the people ignoring me in a store/dealership. Fun times.

Moving today from 1 apartment to another in the same community and the guys are saying the customary tip per mover is $200 each on top of the hourly rate charged. That seems very high to me considering 2 years ago when I moved with the same company their crew said about $50 each was customary tip. Are these new guys swindling me for big tips or is $200 each normal?

Okay so this isn't a traditional staying healthy question but it kind of is. For those who are dating, especially when you're not exclusive, how do you have the STD conversation? Do you ask for tests prior to getting intimate? Do you just avoid any actual contact and rely on barriers to do the work? Do you just wing it and pray for the best? I find having these conversations dampens the chemistry, but its also needed to stay healthy. Thoughts on when being paranoid is too much?

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.
