I have started on a project and it’s insanely aggressive. I start at 6:30 am and go on till 6:00 pm; sometimes even late. This is my 5th year at consulting so I’m not a newbie in this envt. But I really feel this project is exhausting me to the core. On top that, with the given work from home situation, my husband keeps making me feel guilty by saying that I don’t take care of my health and that this is not the right work envt. for me. I live in San Francisco and not happy with consulting salary

At what age did your in-laws stop traveling? Mine are 65 and 62 and I can’t wait until they stop insisting on driving the 20 hrs each way to visit and then staying with us multiple days to make the drive worth it and spending every waking minute with us. I would prefer them to fly and stay for a long weekend (~3 days) and/or get a hotel or at least do their own thing for part of the time. Annnnd thanks for listening to my rant. ;)

One of the law clerks I work closely with just put her in notice and I’m honestly devastated. She will be leaving in a week and I suspect it will be much longer until the partners hire someone and I will be picking up the slack. Any tips for managing without her in the interim and a smooth transition when someone new starts?

Hi 🐠, I have a few laptop options that I can choose from for my new gig. Could you all please let me know your thoughts? I’m leaning towards the Dell as they’re light with decent other specs.

Options:
A. Surface Pro (i7, 16GB 256 SSD)
B. Lenovo T15 (i7, 16gb, 1tb SSD)
C. Dell - 7420/5520 (i7, 16GB, 256GB SSD on 7420 and 512GB SSD on 5520)- can not choose between models
