II will second this! and my older sister had a genius idea for people who are concerned about tying up assets - If you were doing six month or year long CDs, do multiple ones and stagger them. So you’re essentially never more than a few months off from one of your CDs becoming do and having access to that cash, but Read more

I’m going with ‘99 because I lived in the Rocky mountains, went dancing all the time, and loved my job. In 2021 I expect only one of those to be true.

Can’t recommend 1999. Didn’t you hear about next year? The computers are all going to break in 2000 and it’s going to be an apocalypse!!

CDs! No, not the outdated audio storage format. I realized recently that all my savings were in a Bank of America savings account that my parents set up for me as a kid and it has been sitting there for years doing nothing. So after an exhaustive peruse through NerdWallet, I put some in a CD with Ally bank which has Read more

I feel this. I wonder if it isn’t survival mode. There’s no way can I process the entirety of this shit show but it’s not like I can opt out. It is different than depression because I am still functioning well (I think). Anyway, I don’t think you’re alone in this and thanks for putting it down. It’s good to know that Read more

Thanks! I heard back from the small nonprofit - they couldn’t juggle the GoFundMe page in addition to their usual mission long-term, but they gave away all the money to families and will publish a little overview soon. So I feel good about supporting them at least! Read more

Your whole description reminds me of how I felt after my brother died. Complete numbness and autopilot. I really don’t remember 6 months of my life. And I was not drinking then. Read more

Late to the game but have to get this off my chest: I’ve been volunteering, recruiting people for, and donating to a COVID emergency fund that is...not a scam per se, but definitely some mix of incompetence, greed, and callousness. They raised $23 million, fueled by *hugely* powerful political and celebrity Read more

Yucko - the verdict of ‘dunno; let’s see what happens’ is always a nice de-stressing charmer (not). Hopefully it’s one of those mystery flare-ups that fires up strangely, then goes away and never comes back.

Yeah, I am not opposed to therapy in principle! I've been a couple of times! But I think this Terminator Mode I'm in is some sort of defense mechanism. Maybe when/if things get better, I'll need it because everything has been stowed away very, very deeply. But for now, this skin suit thing is working.

The dining room/kitchen are done ! The only furniture I’m waiting on is the couch! I’m waiting to pick out art for the living room until then and then the next project is the bedroom. Hopefully the couch will be here next week 🙏 I am so so so in love with this apartment. It’s bananas how happy I am to get home

I’m struggling at work with everyone else seeming to be really busy and productive and I feel like I’m just coasting along. Either I’m missing something, and I’m about to have a massive “oh shit!!” moment or my peers are really trying to prove themselves. Either way, I’ve got a 1:1 Friday so I guess I’ll find out.

Job update: The country club place never called me to let me know anything, so I think we can safely take that as a no. (Thank God.) The other good possibility where I’d interviewed just called to let me know they chose someone else. (SADFACE.)  BUT a third job, which I’d written off as a “no” (because zero response Read more
