I’m trying to get a mom perspective on this- I had a baby in December and I am on leave until June. How old was your baby when you put them in daycare? I’m thinking if I’m WFH, I may be able to pull it off and have her here- but part of me thinks that’s insane.

Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.

After a year in public accounting, I’m thinking this ain’t it for me. When we were in the office and on site at clients it was amazing, but I have been doing all my audit work from home since March and feel like I haven’t learned anything, and every day is miserable. I have one CPA exam section left and I honestly just want to collect my $5k bonus and bail. Do you think they would try to recollect that money if I were to do that? Things could change, but I’m looking at this possibility.

Just moved to a new city with a high COL for a job in a V10-20 firm. But we are still remote with no guidance on coming back. Partners conditioned my acceptance on relocating but it doesn’t seem necessary. I feel really isolated and don’t know anyone, and it’s difficult finding time to meet people obviously. I’m concerned about my mental well-being going forward. On a first year salary but live in a 1 room studio due to COL. Is this worth considering a lateral by next year? Thanks all.
