Have been going out with a colleague (we're both associates) for about a month; wondering whether to disclose...
My husband and I are hoping to have a child soon, but I don't want to get off track at work. I'd love to know how others have handled the transition to motherhood while competing to make partner.

Struggling with this whole work life balance thing. Is it possible to have a semblance of a life/hobbies? If so, how? Most of my socializing is honestly in the microcosm of the firm (drink nights etc)
I just found out that my new firm reads all emails sent and received. Does that creep anyone else out?
Can I ask my senior associate if I’m doing an okay job? For context, we’re on several matters together and I want to correct any mistakes WHILE we’re working together, not ask about them after.
Recieved an offer to work in-house in a big (Canadian) market. Thoughts on starting out a career in law in-house? How difficult is the transition from in-house back to private practice? Any advice?
If there were no practical obstacles whatsoever, what area(s) of law OTHER than your current practice area would you want to explore, and why? I’ve been so specialized for so long I’m not even sure how to answer this question for myself. Once upon a time I was somewhat interested in tax but I’m worried that’s where fun goes to die. I kinda dig admin law, although that’s cheating a bit because I work with a federal agency.
I hate it when you go out and the waiter asks "sparkling or still" and then before you can get a consensus some asshole just decides for the whole goddamn table. I like my Perrier!
Dealing with baglog What are some strategies for dealing with backlog? While working from home I've had a propensity to procrastinate and now have gotten behind on several files. I know I need to grind to turn them around before the clients asks for an update, but that's easier said than done during the day with conference calls, emails, and new "urgent" work that doesn't stop.
The California law school deans are asking that the new bar exam score (1390 instead of 1440) be applied retroactively at least to Feb 2020 (which they should) but are also asking to go back to July 2017. As someone who failed July 2017 with a 1439 and passed Feb 2018, I can’t help but feel so frustrated with the State Bar. Even if they do it, my swearing in date will still be June 2018 instead of Dec 2017, I still lost 6 months of my career even if retroactively I passed the first time.
Told a friend of mine to do an MBA, it'd help in the long run. He said in the long run, we'd be dead....

Currently interviewing at JPMorgan in their CIB division for a associate operations role. Have met with 5 people for two different teams and another person for another team, all of which I believe are 3 total open positions for 3 different teams. Any insight on the interview process or how long it takes or any sort of idea to give me on what I could look for that might help me believe I might get an offer? Checked my online application again recently and still says “In Consideration”
I’m extremely depressed by my current job. What medications exist out there that I could use to make myself seem happy and positive during interviews?
Guy in front of me reclined seat, can barely even put tray table down, let alone use a laptop. Can I ask the flight attendant to be reseated? Why do people do this.
