Universal Orlando trip? I am seeing an uptick in covid cases and articles sayin the area is "crisis mode". We have a group all vaxxed except for 1 -small child and 1 half vaxxed (next shot isnt until we get back). Would you go or is this fear mongering again?
How does maternity leave affect your bonus and time towards partnership at your firm? My firm pro-rates your bonus based on the months you worked (no credit for leave) and can dock you a year from partnership in their discretion. They are more likely to dock you a year if you took leave for more than one child.

Ladies, would this be a huge turn off? “Lives with parents, can’t date him” type thing? I’m an only child and my parents bought a new house in 1996 with an unfinished basement. Since I’m paying their house off anyways, I finished the basement and made it incredible. Designed the whole thing myself and have everything I want. It has its own entrance, and the backyard is beautiful. I have an amazing, large double shower, and a beautiful kitchen and nice closet with laundry.
My baby is turning one and I want to buy her more toys. We have a Lovevery subscription. Do we “need” anything else? Anything your kid liked? She doesn’t seem that tactile…

Family law associate. I run a docket of about 40-50 cases and work about 50 hours a week. I currently make about 125K (self-employed, no benefits). Between jury trials for CPS termination cases and the highly adversarial nature of family law, I find this job to be incredibly draining, as I have horrid work/life balance and struggle with constant anxiety. I recently got an offer with a personal injury firm. 110K, full benefits, for a non-litigation/docket manager role. Thoughts?

Thoughts on KPMG strategy group competing against other Big Four and MBB's..? Is the group growing/winning work?
Thinking of getting a personal AMEX gold for the rewards and intro points. As the spending has to be significant to qualify for the 20,000 intro points and for it to make sense in general, has anyone else found that their credit score went down due to using AMEX as main spending card? I don’t really need a credit card per se and I just really wanna be able to accumulate points on my spending that I can use as miles/rewards… however not at the expense of my credit score!
