In my time, I did a super long study (not as far from a year as you might think), which was both the best and worst thing for me. It was a great study that I thoroughly enjoyed with the best people that I worked with at the firm, but after that study i lost all enthusiasm for everything else. My next study leaderships said I seemed "bored" -- and I was. I think it all kind of told me, get a regular job hopefully in something you are marginally interested in where you see the same people most days and there is some stability. So I did.

Deadlines can induce anxiety attacks for me. I worked through the weekend and just woke up to a (nice!) email from the client asking about progress. We're not going to hit deadline. This caused an all-out anxiety attack at 6:30 am and now I have to somehow get myself together and work. How can I have a healthy relationship with deadlines? That "good and done is better than perfect" saying is nice, but expectations are very high. I just want to stop feeling this way. Therapy helps, kind of.

My last day at my current firm is Monday. The GC of the largest book I work on informed me this week that they want to follow me to the new firm. It’s a healthy 250k/year book. For me, a big deal. This is a client I did not originate and they predated my time at current firm. Leaving amicably is somewhat important to me. GC wants a smooth but immediate transition. Thoughts? Do you tell your mentor that your poaching a big fish or wait till you land at new firm and send the file request.

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.
