    I dislike it when others tell me how to do my job.

    1 or 2
    3 or 4
    5 or 6
    7 or 8
    9 or 10
    11 or more

    The high-functioning autistic American dude in my team at work asked me if he could use one of the meeting rooms on his lunch break to practice the moves from The OA.

    After googling it, I was happy to consent.

    I'm thinking about saving up a bit of money over the summer and quitting my job to pursue a career doing something I actually enjoy doing, jumping 100% into the fashion photography and fashion design route. Have any of you guys willingly quit a job with nothing else solid lined up and if so how did it go?

    I've never done that but would like it to be my next move. I've read you should have 3X your current salary saved up before quitting. Not sure where that number would have come from but it makes sense.

    Also, your Instagram shots have been terrific lately. Glad you got active again!

    This is 3x your annual post-tax salary? If so I'm going to be a long way off from that, but I'm guessing I'll only give myself about 3-4 months to see if I can gain traction. If I can save properly I should have $10-$15k stored away and my current living situation is such that rent is really a non-issue. I want to do it before I talk myself out of it.

    60% of my operation's work being outsourced to India. 75% of my workforce made redundant. I've been retained for a minimum of two years but I have to go out to India to oversee training for 6 weeks (dig our graves). Harsh times.

    Best of luck with this. Where all would you be looking to travel? If I remember correctly, you've spent a far amount of time in East Asia..? Do I have that right?

    My company had an awards ceremony last night for our clients. It was in a stuffy ass ballroom in New York. I got to present an award & had the DJ play "Bad & Boujee" as my walk up music.

    I felt good about it but no one acknowledged it.

    My team at work is under the suspicion that around half of us will be getting cut within the next six months or so. About half of us have been tasked with training another team so that they can take over about 80% of the work we currently do, and we have been given no idea as to what we are supposed to do after that 80% of our work is in other people's hands.

    The good news: My teammate found another job and will be putting in his two weeks next week meaning I will be the only person on my team who knows how to actually train this other team. I will be putting in for a request for a promotion and a relocation at the end of his two week period. Assuming I get the promotion, I will then quit in mid-October to (hopefully) shoot fashion stuff in Asia. If I don't get the promotion I will likely put in my two week notice after I shoot New York Fashion Week.

    Big risk/reward times are coming. Could be a great thing or could totally blow up in my face. Wish me luck bros!

    You guys ever get emails from a co-worker or a client and just think to yourself, "This person has never boarded hard before."?

    I am having a really hard time finding a job!

    I've been working in a warehouse for the past several months. I don't mind the work and genuinely like the company of the majority of the other employees, but the pay fucking sucks. My ideal job is to work in policy/political advocacy, but I'm also applying as a legal writer/assistant and some real estate bookkeeping/admin jobs.

    The furthest I have gotten was at a legal firm that sent me a grammar assessment. I spent about thirty minutes on the test and submitted it only to be denied further consideration. So apparently I can't read or write so good! howyadoin
