I’m a first-year in a transactional practice group and I seem to not be getting as much work as another first-year that was hired with me. Things are cyclical and there are times where I bill 14 hour days and days where I bill nothing. I have concerns because my colleague seems to be constantly being pulled into work for attorneys in my section and if I ask them for work, the answer is “I’ll let you know.” Just an FYI, I had a rough start in the beginning but I redeemed myself by learning fast.

How do you deal with an ex who’s hot and cold? We broke up ~6 months ago so they could focus on work (it was “mutual” but obviously not what I wanted). We took time to distance ourselves and recently tried to be friends again but they go back and forth between ignoring me/taking days to respond and saying they feel guilty we didn’t work out and it’s too hard to be friends right now (which makes me feel like they still care).
