Any Dallas/DFW area new moms or locals support groups? New to the area but with covid hard to get out, want to get to know other new moms who are also in the accounting field.
How many moved back home (i.e. with parents) because of COVID? Anyone else struggling with feeling like a failure to launch? I love all the money I’m saving (especially with a plan to go to B school), but I feel like a loser
Good news thread! Share your good news below 🥰
Just a rant. The subway is my primary mode of transportation. Without fail, there is always at least 1 person - usually 2 - unmasked. I looked at an unmasked woman when the reminder announcement was made and she shouted, “whatchu lookin at?”. I said, “ignorance and selfishness apparently”. Look, I don’t want to wear a mask either, but it’s required and we are all in this together. I wish the MTA would enforce this.
I know this is controversial, but would you get a vaccine if you didn’t have kids yet? I feel like there isn’t enough information on if/how this could potentially affect fertility. I personally contemplate waiting a little longer (at least until it’s FDA approved), but at the same time thinking maybe I’m over reacting?
What’s your take on lonely boys? Chatting with a dude—hot, fit, great job. But made multiple references to being lonely cause he’s living alone, cause his friends have left the city cause of COVID. Super open and vulnerable with me before even going on a first date. Not hating, just don’t know what to make of the situation.
We got gorillas catching the covid now too? 😟
I am thankful for Slalom staff aug for allowing my low functioning self to fly under the radar. I used to be a Big 4 hardo, but COVID fatigue/languishing has me ready to retire. The hardest part of my job is convincing peers that a handful of emails, meetings, and deck updates each day = 40 billable hours/week.
Just curious how people have decided to respond to their student loans from law school. Do you all just pay the minimum and live comfortably or are you aggressively paying? What are the pros and cons?
It seems like each county/school district is responding to covid differently and the amount of pressure to return to normal varies. What's going on in your county?
Anyone hear anything about COVID spikes for the summer? It's a bit confusing to be honest, hearing conflicting insights
Is anyone else tired of hearing people talk about all of the things our seniors are missing out on? I’m so tired of this entitlement situation. Yes, it would be nice to have a graduation and end of the year activities. But these things are not owed to anyone. How about being grateful for survival? There are students all over the world that seem to get along just fine without senior activities.
Are you vaccinated? Will your students have the opportunity to be vaccinated before school starts?
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
My roommate just went to see her boyfriend knowing he has Covid. I asked her not to go seeing as I’m not vaccinated and she said she needs to check on him (he has 3 roommates so he’s not alone). I told her that if she goes to see him I’m not comfortable with her coming back and asked if she could stay with him until they both get a negative Covid test. She said it’s crazy to ask her to not come home and said I should get a hotel if I’m that concerned.
Looking for experience from ladies who went through abortion or are mom of 3 kids...I am 6 weeks pregnant. Please help me decide if I should have a 3rd baby or go for abortion. I am confused due to travel needs (post COVID) , plus long leaves create perception of being away for long and fear of not being able to manage 2 kids who are already getting limited of my time due to nature of my job. I live with my husband. No other family or relatives around me. Please share your experiences. Thank you
Ahh looking forward to another early 9am rise just to sign into availability and collect my lofty 61k experienced associate PwC base salary. Get a fresh cup of coffee in my New York dumpster apt. I can’t afford. A good day to be an accountant. Anyone else feel like they are getting guerrilla fucked by the big four during COVID? Everyone said death, taxes, and PwC’s base salary raise after year one was guaranteed. Yet here we are no raise and partners smiling saying at least you have your job. 😎.
How great would office emojis be in this app?
Post for likes! 😤
Post to test
anyone know if you can configure your skype for business to allow communication (chats) between other companies?
Someone asked me whether I have any creative hobbies and I responded "PowerPoint" without even thinking...
Anyone else grow up poor and feel like a prick when talking about your travel adventures with friends back home? I made it out and am one of 💰THEM💰now....not sure how I feel about myself.
Has anyone tried giving up their seats on Delta or JetBlue? Is it really worth the time?
Ethics training this morning: "examples of inappropriate behavior are.. Repeated, blatant disregard for personal time" 😅😆😂 don't piss on my feet and tell me it's raining
Someone on my aisle is ripping potent farts every 5 mins. Bro.. Thanksgiving was 4 days ago. No excuse for such fartery. Monday travel is bad enough on its own without your contribution. Please stop.
Does anyone else not want to drink during the weekend because you spent almost the entire week recovering from one hangover from another?
Remix? Really? -- "Ms. Mayer forbade her managers from uttering what she called “the L-word,” (layoffs) instructing them to use the term “remix” instead." http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/02/02/technology/yahoo-employee-ranking-system-lawsuit.html
Is it ok to charge a few bucks (like 10-20$) of incidentals to the room or is this going to get me a slap on the wrist? I’m a newbie just trying to get a feel for the boundaries
Just completed my EY case interview. Not feeling as confident as I should coming out, but the first half is over. Now we wait !
Do I really need to track macros if I am counting calories and keeping them under 1200 a day? I'm 6 feet tall and want to lose some extra fat. Thanks!
Wow. Oliver Wyman Plans to Recruit Qualified Refugees Arriving in Europe http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/09/09/oliver-wyman-idUSnBw096712a+100+BSW20150909
When your friends schedule a holiday party at 830pm specifically so you can make it and you still don't make it 😓
Fox News - "let's not politicize this" - while constantly politicizing it The latest muppet's solution - we need to have armed security at every single entrance of a school. We need harden the soft targets. Smart question from Fox news anchor to muppet - how do you harden schools in rural areas (single story /large area)? Answer: volunteers - dads would be love to volunteer. Conversation ends with? Thoughts and prayers for the families... Can't make this up...
Feeling lonely this year not because of the lack of a significant other but more because of not having a ton of friends due to constant travel. Has anyone else dealt w/ this?
