As a girl, I would feel uncomfortable if you made a move in front of the rest of the team at the beach. Maybe wait till a dinner or if you are alone with her to make a move. And don’t be creepy about it. Be a gentleman 😊 good luck!!

By team vacation on the beach, did you mean your project ended abruptly and all of you are now available?

Hey my team is going on a team vacation to the beach too, and I’m also a female....

Do a couple of nice but non-creepy gestures that show you care about her. If she seems to also care about you, once project is done ask her for a lunch to catch up. Low risk, high reward. Building momentum it’s not a bad thing :)

How do you deal with a partner who makes you feel terrible about not just your work but yourself? This is a female partner who is older and a leader in her practice area. She comments on how I speak and it veers into personal criticism. Anything I offer to a project she shuts down, but if her favored paralegal says the same thing, she publicly praises her. I feel like they tag team me and unfortunately I can't completely stop working with them.

I'm grounded cause my husband traveled. Under a new order, returning travelers must quarantine 10 days and they should isolate from others in the household, even wear masks at home. Husband is about to return from a work trip, & he's not on board. So to stay "clean" and able to go out myself, I plan to sleep in my home office for HIS quarantine, with my air purifier on, and mask up if we are in the same room. Ridiculously inconvenient, but I do not feel it's ethical to risk infecting others.

401k advice requested - 25 years old, live in nyc, make 125k. I’ve always maxed my 401k to 19500 with a split of regular and roth. Always do the 6k of Roth IRA too. New firm has no matching policy. I understand the benefits of tax so maxing it is beneficial, however, I’m almost breaking even each month. Is it smart to slow the contributions, keep investing myself so I will have money for a down payment down the road? Don’t want to pull on my 401k if not needed
