I've been thinking about asking to work from this satellite office for a month or two after the reopening, which would give me a COL advantage and help me avoid the

Dear law firms: when your offices re-open, please allow jeans for at least a month. I’m not sure I fit my suits anymore and I need time to shed the 500 pounds I gained in the past 8 weeks. Thanks.

Anybody struggling with fellow associates in big law? Currently working with associates that will stab you in the back at all costs and don’t care about building friendships, etc. This environment is mentally draining and I feel like I am an outlier for being kind. Truly shows that nice people finish last.

My boyfriend of 3 years makes about 2.5x my salary (I also have student loans and he doesn’t). He thinks we should continue splitting expenses 50/50 (rent, groceries, date nights, etc). This is someone I plan on marrying, and I’m financially savvy but feel like I’m SO behind with my means/money goals compared to where he’s at. Curious to know how others approach shared expenses with their SOs? I’ve gotten a lot of mixed advice on this from friends and would love to hear more opinions.
