I have a rough time at work for some reason I can perform really well for short periods of time but as soon as I know I'm doing okay I get lazy again, I feel like my life is just never going to be complete and it's going to be as empty as it is now forever. I don't want to lose my job but honestly it's hard to see the point in going forward beyond not being on the street. No essential vitality animates me I just learned forward like some sort of unwieldy machine.

Hi everyone - I’m in a non-UBE bar exam state, but would like to waive into another state (the only one I can do this with before 5 years of practice). The state I would like to waive into is where I grew up. My firm doesn’t have an office in the other state though…is there an argument to be made for them helping out with the fees nonetheless? Or is that wishful thinking? I only have a few months to waive into this state or else I have to wait multiple years. Thank you!!!
