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.

I don’t know who needs to read this right now but: there is more to life than work; your worth is not measured by how well you do your job; your job is not more important than your mental heath and wellness. (:

Does networking/client-facing energize or drain you? Share your thoughts. For me personally it’s the best part of my job (I find company politics draining, not human interactions tho tbh). Which is interesting because I’m an ambivert (not full-on extrovert). Was at non client-facing job prior to consulting and it felt so dry.

Monday is my last day (let go). My team is finding out tomorrow as well as the client. What emails or communications would you send and to whom? Would you thank yous to client contacts as well? All my client contacts seemed greatful I was in the firms audit team (though they could just be acting nice). I just hate having the team and client thing I'm running out in them when it wasn't my choice.
