Hi Guys, first time doing structured planning - so need to know if this approach is right.
Best maternity jeans? Looking for some that are still stylish but not super pricey as I just can’t bring myself to spend a ton on pants I’ll only wear for a a few months. Thanks in advance!
Based on my LinkedIn post about the issue with tenure-based parental leave- my strategist self turned it into a brief. I’d love to get your eyes and thoughts on it. Comment and I’ll share directly.
So my husband and I decided to name our son after my husbands grandfather who passed away when my husband was a kid. We just found out that his grandfather spelled his name differently than we thought and were planning on spelling our son’s name. I like the way we were planning on spelling it better. Would you use the actual spelling of the name or go with the one you like more? Context: it’s a slightly unique although not entirely out there name.
Sitting in First for flight home. Guy comes on board and sits next to me. His teenage kid is with him and he sends the kid to his seat in row 20. I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to do that!
7 weeks pregnant and feel so lazy all the time! Is this normal? My work doesn’t excite me, don’t feel like doing house hold chores as well. I feel so terrible.
Hi Ladies, have any one switched jobs while on maternity leave? What is the best way to? And at what time? Do I have to repay SMP or salary paid to me while on matleave?
Took the bar in 2013. Worked a year at a midsize foreclosure law firm and under a year at a small company as inhouse. Got married and had a kid and took a paralegal job working for judges in the federal government. Done some volunteer work started a law firm but never really did anything with it. I now want to practice again and don’t know where to start. I’d like to stay with federal govt due to my student loan debt. Should I devote to my law firm? Is it impossible to get back into practice?
Today I finally took the day off for my mental health. This year, I lost my childhood dog of 16 years, am planning my wedding in the time of corona, and dealing with an emotional/verbally abusive parent. Was traveling coast to coast weekly before quarantine set in and never took time to grieve or process things. And since WFH it’s been 60 hour weeks and some weekends working. Today after some hurtful comments from my dad, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Glad I took this day to reset.
Honest question for my desi 🐠. How many of you have a really good relationship with your MIL (specifically the women with their MIL). I am wondering if my wife and mother have a problem that is common to many or are they a minority.
My wife is worried about her career. She was a HS teacher from college until 30. Then changed career to be in tech partnerships, essentially BD roles. Did that until 32 when she became pregnant and took career break to look after kids for 3 years. Now she’s 35 and lost. Too old to start a career from the bottom, too inexperienced to get middle-management roles that she might be good at, and is disconnected from the job market having been a SAHM. How can she find her way?
To the women on the forum. Would you rather receive a 36m date just or Cartier nail bracket? Looking to buy a Christmas, birthday, push baby gift (lumping them together) 😂. I know it’s a watch forum but which would you prefer.
Recommendation for a tax person to help with complicated taxes - husband and I lived in NJ for part of 2021, he worked remotely for an nyc and then Long Island co., I worked in NJ and for a MA firm. We also both took parental leave and taxes weren’t taken out of some of that pay. Also, need child credit for said child who the IRS doesn’t know about yet.
Would you date someone who has a child? I am single f 32 in NY. I am beginning to think that I should perhaps be a little more open minded.
Is anyone visiting family and/or friends during this time? I live in Chicago and we still haven’t reached the apex. My wife is insisting on seeing our nephew and our mother in law came over to visit yesterday. I’m personally not comfortable with any of it
When your mother loudly interrupts your work call to berate your manager for giving you work at 4pm on a Friday 🤦🏻♀️
I was getting hounded by recruiters, changed my LinkedIn photo to include my kid, crickets ever since…
Just need to vent. I asked my doctor for an estimate for fees associated with birth of our child due next year, and it has opened a Pandora’s box of incompetence at all levels of the provider, hospital, and insurance. This is why I have avoided healthcare for 30 years.
So not really digging my husband physically anymore. He is a really sweet guy, great father. He just doesn't care about his health as much as I do. What should I do?
Literacy Collaborative - what are your thoughts? Do you use it or have you? Positive and negatives with 6th grade middle school also would be helpful!!
Hi folks, I have 3.5 years of experience as Automation Engineer and holding offers from IBM consulting , Citiustech and Publicis Sapient which company is better to join on the basis of work culture, compensation and career growth?
I graduated with my Ph.D. last year and have been in the US since 2013 (MS and then PhD). I’ve been in OPT since last year and recently got the STEM extension. Since I’ve passed 5 years on my F1 visa - I’m considered a resident alien for tax purposes. But since I’m still working on OPT and don’t pass the substantial presence test - am I exempt from FICA taxes?

Activated Lyft Pink with my CSR. How do you know you’re getting the 10% off? Prices look the exact same to me, even when comparing historical rides.
What is an average range of percentage in salary increase for a promotion? Is this negotiable, and has anyone has success doing so?
Had a partner, who was promoted after a stint at the SEC, tell me he is a libertarian. I find it hard to understand how a true libertarian could make his entire career based on regulation...
