Just got finished with two huge projects I had to turnover in a very tight timeframe. One of them barely had any revisions and the other got clobbered with redlines. Clearly the latter was the one I was working on at 2am. This is my very first assignment as a first year at big law and I wanted to make a good first impression. I feel like I squandered that opportunity.😣

I promise, you’ll be clobbered over and over again. First year is the absolute worst. Total rollercoaster. The fact you’re even in big law is enough, own it and keep going. Good job on the first project! Take the win and get some sleep.

Don’t worry. Just keep going.

4YOE @Amazon & trying to lateral to a similar role @FAANG. Have my undergrad GPA (3.8/4) on resume from top 15 school but colleague says to take it off (looks silly). If it’s a good school & high GPA, why ever take it off your resume? Even if 10 YOE...can’t hurt?

When NY was the epicenter for COVID-19 the rest of America shunned us and gave drivers a hard time in other states if our license plate was from NY. Now that NY actually flattened/reduced the curve, while the other states are a bumbling mess, can our governor Cuomo set a ban on all travelers coming in from other states? I would suggest a 14 day quarantine on all folks from outer states and a 30 day one for those from hot spot disaster states.
