Obviously know it’s not necessarily the hotel’s fault, but when we’re getting such little sleep as-is, the few hours we have are precious

Was there a fire?

Time to replace my 12+ year old Travelpro bags. They've held up well for multiple international moves and regular travel but are having some problems now.

What are some brands or specific bags to consider? I'd prefer light, soft cases. Bonus points if the bag doesn't look too expensive. I'm small, female, and often travel alone. Don't want to be a target when I'm on the road.

We just had a new associate start today. They are still on their old biglaw firm’s website. As someone who was previously let go (and has had friends let go), I know what this means. PSA to people who were laid off/fired, remember to let your old firm know when you’re starting at your new firm so it isn’t so obvious that you were let go. I don’t judge people for being let go, but many people are not as friendly/kind.

If you’re like me and are doing a lot of models involving weekly forecasts, a really handy formula to convert any date to the week-ending Saturday date:

I used to use lookup tables, or use a week count 🤮 which isn’t best practice for models that extend beyond a year.

This kind of changed my life.

Fascinating little life hack, for doing percentages:

x% of y = y% of x

So, for example, if you needed to work out 4% of 75 in your head, just flip it and and do 75% of 4, which is easier.

I am so overwhelmed this year.... I feel like I'm not a good enough teacher for my students and at the same time not a good mom to my 4 year old and baby. There are days when I feel like I'm breaking. I'm not sure if this is the product of teaching during a pandemic or becoming a full-time working mom with 2 young children, or a combination of both. I just can't keep up. 😢 I always question walking away from teaching but I'm not sure if that would make life better for me and my kids.
