Wondering if there are any resources (coaching, book recommendations…?) that you have found helpful to retrain your frame of mind to be less of a people pleaser and feel more confident being direct or saying no. Any suggestions welcome!

Anyone else kind of bored clerking? I liked law school and thought I liked research and writing, but so far this district court clerkship has been pretty boring—lots of state law issues that are poorly briefed. Though to be fair, most of my time has been spent on one big case that I’m 99% sure is going to settle but not until the eve of trial bc that’s plaintiff’s counsel’s m.o.; so my work resolving the insane number of SJ and Daubert motions seems like a waste of my time.

I have a cousin who occasionally asks me to watch their baby while she and her husband go out. I’m very happy to do it and it doesn’t happen often but she always attempts to pay me / buy me a gift as a thank you. I always refuse the money but she’s started sending me gift cards. I was thinking of just using the gift cards to buy something for the baby and giving it back to her but is that weird / rude?
