Would you all consider the people you work with friends? Or it strictly just professional. Have a hard time navigating this and how much I should reveal about myself to others

Definitely friends but not everyone. With any type of relationship I think it’s gradient and some people will turn into friends while others can be close professional relationships. For me the biggest thing is if I’m working with the daily or not - I find it easier to be friends with those who I’m not working with every day.

I like being friendlier with my colleagues around the office - makes it easier when you can let your hair down with others. Although I find it easier to do that with people I don’t work with daily because that way I can vent about the people I do work with

Friends for the most part however I ensure that it is always kept friendly professional. As the relationships develop, I then and select who I let in closer and this usually involves out of the workplace gatherings and social activities.

This is always awkward especially when you’re new at the office. I have no easy answer...I usually put feelers out and see who I click with more. Then I slowly unpeel layers of personality. I would like to be friendly with at least some of the people I work with especially given the hours we spend together, but it takes time and doesn’t happen with everyone for sure.

I recently got a job in city A, where we currently live, knowing that we’d have to relocate in the next few months to city B (same state) for my husband’s new job. My job is expected to be fully remote at least through the end of the year but they only have an office in the current city and expect everyone to be back in it eventually. When do you guys think I should let my boss know I’m moving?

Took a brief vacation; not much has changed. We just keep rallying on the averages. Today, we sold off into a buy level and have rallied nicely from there. 3390 is a short term target. We are getting overextended but could remain like this for some time. Check out the latest draw here.
