A lot less than I used to. It took me way too long to realize that it takes hard work and focus to get anywhere. I am now 31 and working harder than ever, hoping it's not too late to achieve something great.

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

How do you keep your convos in slack organized? I struggle with finding a specific discussion, even when I save it to my ‘saved items folder.’ I find it easier to keep track of emails. So what’s the best way of finding a specific convo within a channel?

My manager is a woman, and she is always commenting on how I look in front of everyone - and it just gets so weird. Ex: on Zoom calls with everyone, she’ll call attention to my outfit, or to my extensions, or to my make up when it REALLY ISNT THAT BAD! Plus we Zoom with all other guys so it’s like UGH stop making it weird. And it’s never a straight forward compliment - it’ll be like “Hey arent you cold in that shirt?” *attention is automatically on my shirt”.CONT.

SF gets a lot of slack for homelessness, dirtiness, cost of living, etc. But is it really that bad? Every city has its sore spots. I find that the good of SF outweighs the bad. What about you guys?

I’m burnt out. Biglaw six years and got pushed out. Now at a midsize firm. I work more than I used to and getting paid 1/3 less. Work is not bad at all and the firm culture is great. I never wanted to become a lawyer to start with but now I’m stuck here. If I switch to a completely new profession, I would have to start over. My hubby’s financials are not great and I feel I’m obligated to stay at my firm job to make it work. I really don’t know what to do...
