Thoughts on getting second professional degree while at big law? Want one because I’m a lifelong learned, but it would send the wrong message.
Our intern keeps complaining about the bar being online. I’m not unsympathetic to the situation but she’s getting an extra three months to study and it’s half it’s normal length. We all had to take it and it was stressful for all of us. I’m very over discussing it with her but she brings it up every day.
3rd year at a V10, billed just barely over our target first 2 years, never had a bad review and things seem not that bad. Biggest stressor is usually not enough work/watching others gun. Anyone else?
We interrupt this crisis to ask a boring question. How do you manage the never ending onslaught of email? How do you organize countless topical articles that you want to retain?
Just venting. I’m tech, and many employees (like 85%) think that being a jerk is a badge of honor and their EQ is like at high school level, so talking to them about diversity issues is like banging head against the wall. They insist that any diversity hire is costing a job to another person with PhD. On top of it, another fancy thing to do in tech is to hate HR. So the conversations usually are like “Oh, you’re in HR, I understand now why you have such a stupid opinion”.
Not sure if I buy Andrew Yang as a candidate but I did get some laughs from his story about his time at Davis Polk. Still chipping away at my debt but good to be reminded that exits can work out 👩🏻💻

Cravath, breaking everyone's hearts and destroying dreams of that extra cash. RIP to all associates at Cravath and other firms that have not made a decision on bonuses yet (because it probs won't happen now haha) Edit: Not saying I agree or disagree with bonuses, I just wanted to post since it's been a hot topic.

Frak - on an international client where they book the travel... I confirmed a Sat flight with them last week, just found out yesterday they booked me for Friday afternoon. Now they're saying it's too
I don’t think the world is as bad of a place as political fanatics of either side want you to believe. Go outside (with your mask on) ... Call up a loved one. Thank the person bagging your groceries and ask them how their day is. Breathe. You think it all comes to this? Please. Relax, you’ll run yourself into the ground with a doomsday mindset - both sides. People are generally good. Communities exist, we can help each other. Don’t take years of your life in the next 3 months. Not worth it

Another day, another case study in LinkedIn drama. Is the creative director right here that political posts should be banned, or at least not algorithmically shared, on LinkedIn? Or, by calling on LinkedIn to take the post down, is he merely trying to “cancel” opinions he doesn’t like? What should the standard be?

I've been exercising for 5-6 days per week. Last weekend, I had intense & long exercise every day (3-6 hours per day for 3 days), and I haven't been able to convince myself to workout since. Normal?
Secret to sustainability & success: sleep with your eyes open during meetings, but read body language out of the corner of your eyes to laugh, look skeptical, or otherwise engaged. Works like a charm!
I have my CFP and my CRPC. I’ve thought of dropping the CRPC and just maintaining the CFP. Thoughts?
