Your partner thanks you for working hard and making him money while he's on vacation.




I was that person and burnt myself out. Don’t, just don’t! Take care of yourself, take time off even if you love working. It’ll help further your stay at the firm


The first step is being aware. Congratulations


You are missing out on life if you do that!


How many years of FT work experience?

My Partner is an ###. Ten years work experience.

Take a vacation. Go somewhere you haven’t been you will be better for it when you get back

The problem with me for vacations is that it costs me money to go on vacation whereas working nets me basically another paycheck with per diem...

Experiences are invaluable

The major reason to have this job is to take vacations you couldn’t otherwise afford
