All I know is working with procurement can be a fucking nightmare. At least at my company- specifically indirect.

I’m at the end of my rope when it comes to my husband. We’ve been together for 13 yrs.When we were dating he was really nice and easy going. We dated for 3 years and then got married. As soon as we got married he became very moody and short with me. We had a child and things got even worse. He was withdrawn and even moodier. I begged him to go to couples counseling but he refused. It got to the point I asked for a divorce, he begged me to try to work it out and asked to go to couples counseling.

Parenting question - when are you expected to intervene in park situations? I have a 3 YO who typically keeps to himself around new kids. 1 time, he was climbing up steps to a slide and another kid (must have been 4 YO) turned and said “stop following me”. I don’t think my kid understood it, but knew he was being spoken to. Another time, my kid went down a slide and bumped into a kid (about 8YO) in front of him and the older kid said “hey don’t hit me”. Should I speak on behalf of my kid(contd)

Kind of having a breakthrough realizing that self-acceptance is the key to personal growth. Whenever I failed to achieve a goal usually I would just mentally berate myself and couldn't get over that thinking that would motivate me to do better, now that I'm okay with giving myself some latitude and accepting where I'm at and loving myself despite it I have actually made a lot more progress.

I am an incoming associate (awaiting bar results). I have already begun working as a law clerk and am already being given plenty of tasks to fill my time, which I’m grateful for. I am also fortunate to be in working in an area of the law that is personally fulfilling to me, so a lot of the work I do doesn’t feel like work. Here’s the thing: I do my absolute best. I give polished, clean work, and I always give my personal best. However, it seems like a lot of the tasks I do always get sent back..

Mentioning the programs is greatly appreciated.

So, I hate my job. For years I’ve been trying to work through nitty gritty and minutiae in the hopes that sorting out those details would “fix” my dissatisfaction. I’ve switched jobs a few times and dabbled in a few practice areas. But I’ve realized I just hate practicing law. Is there any reason to tell your boss or supervisor that you’re miserable? My assumption is no. They won’t fix things. So why would you? Any reason I should reconsider? (P.S. looking for an exit, but that’s not settled.)

But today I found out that associates with 4yrs experience are making $80k; for hitting the 1950 billable req., the bonus is $1k. I've also found there are big DEI problems that I can't overlook. It feels like the pitch was a big lie. Advice?
