Hang in there, OP! It's tough, but it's not forever. I've been where you are and though I know words alone can't help, some of Kahlil Gibran's stuff always gave me something to chew on:

"When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you."

Be strong! ❤️❤️❤️

A newly confirmed federal judge has asked me to clerk for her, and I think it would be a great opportunity. But I am a third year associate in a small market (think 4-5 firms that pay $150K+). I have one of those few great jobs. I am apprehensive because I like my current firm and am concerned about leaving them without the labor they need for the current caseload. What’re your thoughts on clerking after working? About leaving a firm you like to take an opportunity like this? Worth it?

2nd year assoc. here. Finding myself spending 3-5 hours researching/analyzing issues that should only take 1-3 hours. I find myself questioning - for every assignment - is this the issue I was asked to look into? Did I read that case right? Does this analysis make sense? And I end up reading the same cases over and over. Does anyone have advice for being more confident/efficient on tasks, especially research?

What do you do when you feel like your work is not being appreciated? A simple example from a few minutes ago. My manager asked me to upload a document on the drive and proof read it which I did. In the meantime, she was talking to me about a presentation. An hour later she sends me to let her know when it is ready and I answered by saying that it is ready and that she can check it on the drive. Instead of saying thank you, all she said is next time just let me know.

From 1934 to 1968, the federal housing admin upheld redlining— a practice in which residents of predominantly black neighborhoods were denied access to home loans (among other services). Owning a home is a meaningful way by which wealth is built and passed down generations. Black people were systematically denied the ability to build wealth through property— how would you feel if this happened to you and your family?

Interesting that some Americans can be pro-protest when it’s not happening in their country (Hong Kong), but can’t stand by their own citizens when injustice is happening in their backyard.
