Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)

Potentially a dumb question, but for the employment history part of the application, should you include internships? If so, do you annualize the amount of your internship pay? I’ve included them in my resume but feels a little weird to put them at the same level as my first full time job.

How do you figure out what stop loss to set? I’ve never really bothered to set one since I am long term on all my stocks, but recently got into a position which has substantially increased and I think it might be ready to pop.

Is anyone feeling the disrespect of students in a classroom? The attitude towards adults when a student is interacting with the said adult. Wow! The mother in me just wants to wash the child’s mouth out for such disrespect, BUT definitely NOT allowed in school. How have kids gotten this far w/o any reprimand for their behavior? What are we teaching them if we keep ignoring….
Part-time grad school and agency life... doable or crazy? I average 50 hour weeks but would have a convo with my manager about being unavailable a few evenings a week and on weekends.

Alternatively, I can try finding an in-house role before school starts but I know work/life balance is never guaranteed. Thoughts?
