2021.12.08 00:53 BeefyKat How do you all feel about plans?
I have a lot going on right now. I'm closing on a new house in a week, moving officially in 1.5 weeks, which I'm insanely excited about. I just got promoted and officially starting that position at the beginning of the new year. My almost 7 year old son has been begging for a dog, so I got myself on the waitlist for a new litter due early Spring for the breed we want, which means puppy training slated for April/May. I've been planning on beginning with a volunteer program in my area, but it's 32 hours of training upfront and I'm trying to fit it into my spring schedule if possible but possibly delaying for the fall.
With all of that going on, I want... no, I NEED, to cut down on my drinking. At my worst, I'm around a bottle of slightly more of wine an evening. Every evening. On my best, maybe I can go a day or two without, but then I'm back to my normal shenanigans. I just don't want this anymore. I've gained weight and stupid things have happened - most recently, I was chopping cilantro for dinner and cut off 1/2 of my nail from the middle of my finger. I was lucky I didn't lose 1/2 of my finger itself.
But how do you do it? Stop?
I had a great routine going for a few weeks/months over the summer, where I wasn't drinking as much and was going to the gym every morning. I don't know what happened, but before I knew it, the gym visits stopped and my drinking kicked back into gear. I know that stress is a big trigger, which is hard because I'm stressed like 85% of the time, my job and my son are stressful. Plus I have diagnosed anxiety, which I'm medicated for. But I just don't want to be caught in this cycle anymore.
So, I'm trying to make a plan to seriously cut back/stop after my move and I'm settled. So, beginning at the new year. It's not kept me from trying sooner, but stress and everything going on keeps pushing that back and I hate it. A glass or two (or 6) at the end of the evening of a long day of work and managing my son solo is too much to resist, so I keep giving in. So, I'm trying to make a solid plan.
Are there any words of wisdom you can lend? Anything that's worked for you in doing similar?
I've done the "day at a time" and it gets me so far, but then I miss drinking and relapse. I miss the taste and the feeling of just letting go and floating. Feeling relaxed and free and calm. I think my resolve is just weak, but I don't know how to convince myself to get past a few days at a time. I didn't even start drinking until about 3.5 years ago and I'm so mad now that I did. It's expensive and not worth it every morning after, so why do I do it?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.

So I’m currently a financial analyst working in FP&A for Wells Fargo. I miss being client facing but can’t stand retail banking. I’m talking to an FA that has his own group under Wells Fargo’s umbrella. If he offers me a CRM position should I jump over?

2021.12.08 00:52 A_Flying_ducki Unemployed and seeking advice
Let me first say any help would be greatly appreciated. A little backstory, I'm an engineer by trade and am about six months away from receiving my MBA with a PM concentration from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. It's not the best school by any means, but I believe it has a solid curriculum. I'm am also unemployed after my position, along with 5-10 others at my company of less than one hundred, was eliminated. So I'm currently looking, and was hoping for potential suggestions on positions that I should probably look at outside of the Engineering world?
A little background about myself: I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have worked five jobs since graduating about six years ago. I do realize how that looks, and I had good reasons for each one that I left, in addition to the job that laid off staff due to Covid and this latest position.
Over the six years, though, I have had a fairly wide breadth of experience. These experiences have included registering a drug with the FDA, designing an automated mask dispenser, condiment dispenser, etc., to working on and prototyping aerospace components for airliner wifi suites. I also have quite a bit of experience in quoting/estimating both doing the estimating and have gone as far as designing and programming a companies quoting tool based on data collected and analyzed previously by myself. I can tell you there's quite a bit more, but those are the experiences that are standing out at the moment.
So with that being the case, I was hoping to get suggestions or advice on positions to look at that I haven't considered previouslyapproaching or any tips on how to approach this latest stint of unemployment.
Thank you for any help.

2021.12.08 00:52 DtownLAX Is anyone enjoying & completing the Mage Tower challenges?
Inb4 "git gud"
I realize Mage Tower has always been and intended to be a Challenge. I think a lot of the community is comparing their experience to how it was towards the end of Legion, where we had better gear to push through it.
The major difference right now is we don't have any borrowed power to rely on (artifact weapons & legendaries) or gear to help out, because we are scaled down and stripped of Shadowlands abilities. Seems like some Specs have it much easier than others because they are not as reliant on the borrowed power.
I guess my expectation was that this would be fun event where I could resub and do the challenge on all classes I have at 50+, but it's requiring a lot of sweaty gameplay and I'm just a little too rusty with WoW to get it done.
How's it going for the rest of y'all?
