I don’t celebrate. Sometimes it’s nice to get a little work done on a quiet day when you won’t be getting other emails. But it’s also nice to have a forced day off without the pressures of a holiday. I went to visit my family just because we’re all off of work and have nothing else to do.

I went on an interview yesterday. To say it was disappointing would be an understatement. The partner that interviewed me was nice, but he did not understand transactional law. At my last firm, I was a hybrid between transactional tasks and litigation. When billable hours came up, he scoffed at my previous requirement and stated that his were at minimum 60% more. He told me about the “good ole days” when associates were expected to work 200 billable hours a month. He can’t find anyone.
