That was me in 2019. Sorry for being sick and exhausted all the time. 🙄🙄🙄 Don't tell them you are pregnant until after you sign the offer Even though it is illegal, after I revealed my pregnancy before signing the letter and my job offers disappeared. Good luck!

@PWC1 Damn you're better than me. That would have been a nice pay day.

Just apply for full time and if you choose not to go back in, then you choose not to go back in!

Seasonal pays so much better though 😂 comparing the two months I'll work I'll net 4k more with the seasonal job for the same hours compared with what I had before. I am applying to places I actually wouldn't mind working long term, but if it's going to be traditional public accounting tax I know I probably won't go back

Add: I'm looking for full time as well, but I don't know if I want to go back to work after taking time off. This is kid 2 and my kid 1 transition back to work wasn't the greatest.

As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends. But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)
