I’m at 110 for the month as of today. Would be higher but I treated Monday as a holiday. Shooting for 40 hours this week despite the low day Monday though.

This is true. But I have a ton of work to do before the end of the month and want to hit at least 160 hours so I kind of regret it.

80, but its my first month on the job so a lot of wasted time getting set, introductions, IT problems and the likes. Feeling good about the tempo after I got properly set.

About what mine are. Stopped caring years ago what my billables are. Marginal happiness of a few extra grand to kill myself hitting 2000 hours ain't worth it to me.

I know I shouldn't feel guilty, and there isn't work that I should be doing that I am neglecting. I think that's what's so messed up about our profession.

Curious about the low hours. I’m currently at 120. Been wanting to lateral but still so exhausted from December that I haven’t started the process. Is this a sign that lateral market will start slowing down?

It won’t. This is just how January works.
