What matters more - billable hours or quality of work? It seems like I have a good reputation for always being available, but personally, I don't think I am doing my best work as I'm overloaded. Does billing well matter more than quality work? Just started in the spring as midlevel.

Mens loafer sizing. Got a pair of ferragamo loafers and wanted to know how they break in. I was inbetween the 9 and 9.5. The 9.5 fit fine with some space but I was worried how they would break in and stretch over use and become loose. The 9 fit a tad too snug on the width end. Should I stick with the 9 or go 9.5?
