How things change. I wanted to make partner so badly. But as I watch another partner drinking himself into stupid at a hotel bar away from his family that desire has died. Such a sad life.

I like my job - pressure is real, but the fun far outweighs it

I would assume that the colleague drinking at the bar would also do so when not being at partner....

I've met maybe one or two partners who seem truly happy and actually enjoy what they do. Most seem to be here only for the money/power/prestige and a few just seem miserable.

90% of the partners I have met genuinely love and enjoy their job. You don’t make it to partner by not having a genuine love for what you do.

I have yet to meet a partner that doesn't manage their optics very carefully. Have never seen one at a bar outside of team events or happy hours.

So don't be that partner?

Is it worth upgrading from economy to business from DC to Paris? Flight departs evening and lands at 8A.

We’d be leaving the airport to explore the city a little and then return before boarding our next leg 10 hours later, which is 4 hours.

Economy is $600. Upgrading to business is an additional $1300. Total biz tix is $1900. The flight is more than half empty in economy.

Curious whether my body would be tired / aching while I’m trying to explore if I take the economy option. Thoughts?

I grew up in a family that doesn’t really resolve conflict. We make passive aggressive comments or just brush it under the rug because it always blows up into a fight.

What’s the best way to do this?

I have a question where I don't know the answer and at this point am too afraid to ask without anonymity.

I worked 6 yrs at a firm where I never opened a new matter/client and wasn't expected to. Now I'm at a firm for 2 yrs where that is expected. We have 3 fields to fill in: Billing Atty, Working Atty, and Originating Atty.

I have no clue what any of those mean as far as credits who gets what credit by being placed in those fields. I don't want to short myself or my colleagues as I do more..
