My firm has been pushing us to go back to the office since June, and every single day now they are sending pro-office propaganda. You can convince me there are benefits to being in the office, but good grief, let us work from home once or twice a week! Otherwise I’m out.

Currently on maternity leave with my second. Older brother is 2.8 and in daycare until 4. my paid leave will be over around December- when little one is 5 months. Can extend for up to 12 weeks with partial (minimal really) pay. It seems like it may be too much to handle going straight into busy season, but also my teams/ partners are expecting my return for busy season. I was home with my oldest for 7 months. Thoughts on how to approach??

But why aren’t my Roth contributions AND earnings showing in the nontaxable balances section?
First year attorney struggling with my mental health (& suicidal ideation). Got a job at a boutique firm right after law school in 2019 (in an area of the law I had no interest in but bills) and then the pandemic hit and I did not feel supported by the firm while WFH. My mental health declined as did my work product and I’m essentially being let go by the firm. Really struggling with thoughts of being a failure and like maybe I’m just dumb and someone mistakenly let me graduate law school.

For Progressive car insurance, they offered to give me a discount if I used their Snapshot driving monitoring device for the policy period (half year). What is the highest score I can get? Is it A or A+? I remember this used to be only a 30 day evaluation, now it has become 6 months, wtf? I’m in NY state if that matters. I hardly drive my vehicles now and the rates are still about the same as pre pandemic. These thieves.
