It gets better when the market slows down. Then you’ll be twiddling your thumbs and stressing out about meeting hours. Big law sucks because there’s no such thing as the perfect amount of work.

You’ll eventually learn, as a lawyer in a firm your primary job isn’t to practice law, but to bill hours.

Likely depends on practice area and market, but I’m a third year in M&A and still work past midnight several times a week and rarely get weekends off 🥲

Anyone have a therapist reco in Chicago? Hopefully someone who is cool doing remote sessions for now? I've gone to therapy before, but it's been a few years. On top of everything happening to everyone this garbage year, I've had some upsetting personal stuff happen lately and it's getting to be too much to bear. Know myself enough to know it's time to get back into talking to a professional! Thanks in advance.

Suggestions for a birthday gift for myself? My boyfriend has been asking for weeks & I keep saying nothing but he is not having it.

I suggested a nice set of cookware because I enjoy cooking on our nights in but he jokes it’s a little too domestic. An engagement is already in the works so jewelry seems silly & I WFH so even high end shoes/bags can wait. Thoughts?

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.
