I weigh the most I have in 2 years, despite doing IF, keto, OMAD the past year and then switching to just healthy eating, smaller portions, and daily workouts since February. I know the fad diets don’t last long term which is why I switched to the latter but covid/job stress makes it hard to maintain healthy eating and a work out schedule. My doctor said I’m not seeing results b/c I’m “getting closer to 30, it goes downhill from here and harder to lose weight no matter what” 😭😭😭

It’s that time of year for firms to consider attorney promotions. How has covid affected that? If someone’s hours or origination credit is lower, do you give some leeway and still consider them for promotion? Or is it “business is business” & you apply the same rules as in normal years? I’m curious how other firms are handling.

I’m thinking about not taking an offer that I had with a different firm and instead going to industry. Would it be possible for me to add the people I interviewed with on LinkedIn? I actually got along with the team, and am going into an area where they sell, and could be a potential client. Would like to join the firm if I have the chance in the future and keep bridges open.

Interviewing tomorrow and the company has communicated their intention to make an offer by the end of next week. 1) would you take this offer so close to busy season; 2) is the quick hiring decision a red flag? Enough to steer clear of position? It’s a promotion to manager for me and - little over 25% base pay increase.
