Where should I put my money, with specific goals in mind? [more inside]
Specifically, what's it like to work for the state (PA) but through a "vendor"? I have a job offer to work for the State of Pennsylvania, but I would technically be working for what they're calling a "vendor" which I gather is sort of like a staffing agency. My understanding is that I would be employed by the vendor and "placed" at the state agency. Does anyone have any experience with this specifically or a similar working for the government, but technically for someone else arrangement? [more inside]

My life is currently a pretty long commute to and from work bookended by childcare and cooking meals and cleaning up. That's pretty much all I do everyday. Sometimes I swim. I have a long weekend coming up and then, later this month, a camping trip planned. However, I find that it takes me so long to decompress that I don't begin to enjoy myself until the "break" is almost over. What are your tips for quickly switching into 'vacation mode'?

We are working on our resumes, cover letters, and interview skills in college. What I can't help but feel frustrated and at times bewildered about is how the emphasis is always on assimilation, or to be like everyone else. [more inside]
I realized recently that I have a 401k from a previous job many years ago that I haven't rolled over. What should I do? I know YANML, but are there any legal issues here? [more inside]
My job title is scaring off potential employers and I'm not sure what to do about it. Anywhere else the role I hold would be a executive level position that commands twice the salary I make (which is mid-level), but in my company I'm really more the equivalent a junior or senior contributor (plus some extras). How do I position my well-earned "executive" role so that hiring managers stop nixing me for junior-level positions because they think I'm expensive and/or overqualified? [more inside]
I am a floundering college graduate with a degree in English trying to figure out what to do with my life. I always thought medicine was fascinating and recently decided hey, why not try to get a job in that field? But I'm not sure. And I'm torn on what to do next. [more inside]

Basically, what happened last night was that during a meeting people were continuing to argue about how to determine the next course of action for an organization. As president, I decided to go with my gut and pushed for a third option, but I did so in a way that sounded like I was trying to push my role as the organization's leader to get my suggestion through. During this time my body language and patience deteriorated and it became a me vs everybody else situation where everybody suddenly had collectively found the solution that they wanted to reach, and at that point I had to concede my opinion and let their's represent the taken direction.

I have a portfolio career. I run my own creative business and I am busy - this is good! Help me organise my life so I can sleep AND also pay bills AND do fun, awesome things. I often find I have agreed to do several awesome things over a very short period of time. I use Google Calendar to manage my commitments, but clearly it does not provide me with enough of an overview to avoid things colliding. So, what do you suggest? [more inside]

I would consider refinancing both my mortgage and my HELOC (which is reaching the end of the drawdown period next year). However my income has changed since I originally qualified for the loans, due to a more freelance work situation. If, while exploring my refinancing options, my current lender becomes aware of my less reliable income could that cause me problems with the existing loans? [more inside]
