On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Is your passively stoic expression (aka resting bitch face) getting you turned down for promotions? Here's some advice for turning down the Spock and cranking up the rock.
  • How can you reduce stress and have a social life when your deadly serious job requires you to be on call 24/7/365?
  • In trying new ways to strike up conversations without coming across as having a motive or being awkward, how do you spot the line you shouldn't cross?
  • Are you missing out on life by not spending as much time and energy on your relationships and friendships in your 20s because you're so focused on personal development?
  • For a year and a half, Your drug-abusing friend's been cut out of your life for ignoring the help you offered. Now he's in rehab and you don't feel much like re-engaging. Are you being selfish?
  • You're understandably skittish about taking your dog out after he was attacked and severely injured by a bigger, unleashed dog. How can you reintroduce him to socializing, get the irresponsible owner to cover vet expenses, and prevent this from happening in the future?
  • Is working for your significant other's brother's business -- even though you're not really qualified yet -- an opportunity or trouble waiting to happen? There are many issues at stake here, not the least of which is: what happens if you break up?
  • Are cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies still relevant in 2019?
  • Pro Tip: If you use AT&T, download the AT&T Call Protect app, which crowdsources spam and robocaller information.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Inside The Mossad
