Hi, I’m in the midst of my midlife crisis…how do I survive? The typical I don’t feel like I’m where I should be. I just hate life so much and I’ve been wondering why money comes so easily to everyone around me. My younger sister got a lot money from covid unemployment while going to school and she multiplied that money by 5-6x from dodgecoin. She also was able to pay off student loans with it. My other friends have parents who gave them a headstart in life (house, car, college tuition)…
Just a heads up: I had an interview with Benet in Jacksonville FL. Totally misleading from description in ziprecruiter (see posting below).
Turns out they want you to push covid tests (free if insured) to anyone and anywhere you can. Basicallyhang out in parking lots. Payment is $20/test. Wasn't anything that they advertised $20-30/hr +commissions/bonus, potential 80k 1st yr).
I feel alone and lonely. When will my life get better and happier? it’s work, sleep, walk... rinse and repeat. this covid situation is not helping.
I’ve had COVID the last 5 days. I’m finally better and all I want is a chicken biscuit.
Screw you Chick-fil-a and your perfectly delicious chicken biscuits. Why aren’t you open today? God isn’t THAT important.
Just curious 🧐…. Anyone works for an organization that has added Juneteenth to their calendar or created a DEI event? Or have you requested that time off and spoke your to direct supervisor and discussed that the PTO request is due to Juneteenth? Or are you a meh ?
Underpaid lateral hire here. My team is great, partner is amazing, they recognize me, but haven't been promoted yet stating 'Covid'
On every call with them, they say amazing words and I genuinely believe it's true because gets reflected in reviews.
Time to switch ? It hurts me to overwork and not get what I expect. I have expressed my wants clearly
Heading to Hawaii at the end of January for a week’s vacation. Trying to do as much as we can to get the experience. I had been there a few times when I was little, but I know I’ll appreciate it a million times more this time l. Any tips on how to get great deals on experiences?
So no holiday bonus? Cool
Supervisor said I couldn’t have week off for vacation this summer bc another coworker of higher seniority asked off the same week and two people can’t go on vacation at the same time because of staffing. But this coworker that asked off works different shift than me? He works 1st shift I work second. We have a total of 8 workers and no more than 4 work a day. can easily be covered. This has never been a problem until this year (we got a new supervisor). we’re used to being short staffed anyway
What was your favorite restaurant before COVID hit? What are you most looking forward to trying when they open back up?
What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.
Ladies in their 40s. How did you kicstart getting motivated to stay in shape and eating healthy? I'm getting frustrated with this covid weight and sedentary lifestyle (in front of the computer all day).
Is it a mistake to join a Corp Dev group right now with the way the economy is / where it’s going? They were very successful through the covid pandemic (they’re a healthcare firm) which gives some comfort but it’s hard to not think about the potential downside? Would love to hear thoughts
I am a recently naturalized US citizen. I had Global Entry based on my green card and I read that I need to get an appointment to to get my file updated in the GOES/TTP system at an enrollment center. Problem is, I don’t see a way to set up this kind of appointment? Anyone have any experience with this? I saw threads online Pre-COVID where people just walked in but the office closest to me strictly says no to walk-ins.
Does anyone work for Children’s medical center of Dallas on this form ? I know we recently had a “employee appreciation” bonus last month before Thanksgiving but not sure if that counts as one whole holiday bonus including Christmas , or it it’s safe to expect another in mid December ? What seems to be the latter in the past ? Any thoughts are appreciated !
Is the firm doing anything to combat those leaving the practice during covid? Isn’t the firm on a hiring freeze?

My sister is 28, a manager at a retail store, works ridiculous hours & weekends, and generally is unhappy. I suspect depression. She didnt finish college and hasnt pursued her passion (fashion/pro styling) I try to encourage her when we talk and it comes up, but she hasn’t pursued it and remains in the retail job (she’s worked retailed forever) If she was happy and loved it I wouldn’t care, but it saddens me to see her unhappy. I realize I can’t make her take action, but what *is* my role here?

I had to eat a lot of class years when joining big law. I didn’t go T14, didn’t get a summer job in big law, had to work my way up and finally got here. I’m at a great firm doing the exact work I like doing. Now, all around me, colleagues who graduated with me or after me are getting promoted and I’m still a long ways away. They all deserve it. But I can’t help but feel jealous and angry about the uncertainty ahead of whether I’ll make it there and how long it will take. Can anyone relate?
Will I ever feel capable of reviewing agreements and making substantial comments to them on my own? Second year here who feels like all I’m good for is inputting comments.
What salary would you leave big law for and class year? Would you leave for $150 as a first year? $200 as a third? That sort of thing. I think I'd leave once I snagged anything with a ~$200k base.

I'm finding it harder and harder to concentrate and accomplish things. I think it's due to a loss of motivation. I'm lateraling soon and hope this fixes the issue. When I get around to actually putting in effort, my work product is good. Anyone had a similar experience? Any advice?
Sent an email to the other side with our client CC’ed. client emails me back irate that I sent that email without his express authorization. He has a right to be mad as I was told to get confirmation from him before sending by the partner but I misunderstood and sent the email. Apologized to client and deal team. Deal team said it’s fine, just don’t repeat it. I feel terrible. 2nd year.
Have some potential hits in BigLaw. But say I don’t particularly enjoy my current practice area (X) and would prefer to do another area (Y). If I receive and accept offer, can I then internally get work for Y, while just sucking it up and doing X for a couple years in hopes of transitioning to practice Y?

Are corporate senior associates who are pretty good/competent but not gunning for partner now valuable again in this hot transactional market? In the past seniors always seemed to be pushed out if not a clear partner candidate/no book and struggled in the lateral market but it seems the market has changed
