29M- Question for my OGs
I’m getting to that point in life where I’m loosing a lot of good ones due to not being ready. Not ready as in wanting to f around, but there’s an inclination deep inside that makes me know I’m just not there yet .
95% of women I’m meeting are bringing up the topic of settling early in dating. Do I have to just accept the fact that I will lose a lot to good ones in this phase ? Just sucks seeing them go.

I have a 16-month-old son and not a single mom friend. It feels so pathetic to write that. I'd love to find other moms so my kid can have playdates, but also so I can have someone to talk to, commiserate with, give advice, etc. Because of COVID, there isn't much opportunity to interact with other parents at daycare dropoff, and with classes and playgroups scarce, I'm not sure what else to do. Any tips or success stories? Or anyone in Brooklyn want to be friends?
At what point do you begin to feel numb (if ever) when you’re done trial and prepping for another trial in a span of 3 months, while mains full caseload of other active litigation cases? Should I be worried that I’m going from engaged and stress to numb and slightly indifferent? Or is this what it feels like to power through? I can’t gauge it anymore? And can’t impose judgment one way or another either.
Military relationship has to be one of the hardest things I’ve done. My bf is deployed and we talk daily but it’s not the same as having someone home. Started therapy to deal with some anxiety. You make friends and then all of them get moved around too. Stationed in a small town so don’t have as many of my usual connections like meetups. He’s great but damn It’s a hard world to be in. Thanks for listening to my vent.
Anyone have any LDR or military relationship success stories?
A large part of my job involves building models or making reports that involve copying numbers from one document to another. Sometimes, if I get interrupted, I lose my train of thought and make mistakes in getting the right number. Nothing disastrous has happened, but I’m trying to figure out how to get better at not losing my train of thought when doing work that basically involves looking up numbers from various documents. Any suggestions?

Hello, first time using Fishbowl and posting in this Real Estate bowl. Wanted to answer any questions to those in California. I’m a software engineer full time and do real estate investing and am a licensed agent on the side. Ask me questions 👇👇
Background check at KPMG got dinged because of job title discrepancy. I put the job titles on the online job posting instead of the formal HR titles that they gathered (which I did not know about). Has this happened to anyone before? I am freaking out !
GM everyone! Just looking for some advice. I’m really interested in doing management consulting at MBB. I only have 2 YOE doing risk advisory at EY. I have my MSA, but would I have to go back to school for my MBA or can I directly apply after I have about 3-4 YOE? TIA! 😊
Has anyone used StitcherAds?
You begin to grow concerned...
I’m considering a jump from a large name-brand agency to a small shop. One of my concerns is being able to get back to a bigger agency from one that has less of a name. Continued...

Finally left TCS last week and feel the most happiest person ever.TCS was my 4th organisation and I had joined TCS to settle for long term but after 1 year I realised this is the worst organisation one can be with.No first year hike for laterals, no support provided to hard working dedicated employees, only support and leaves are gifted to employees who do nothing and know nothing except dodging work and getting escalations from clients.Forced wfo, forced completion of useless trainings etc.

I’m a first year associate (I have been here a month and a half), what am I giving for Christmas to others in the office and who should those others be? Thanks in advance!
I'm a renter in a privately owned condo in Florida with an HOA. Long story short, can I get out of lease due to renters right to quiet enjoyment violated and not being disclosed of project when we signed the lease? There's so much detail that goes into this but I don't have room to write it so ask away and give me your thoughts. People have been in several times, including 1 time emptied our closet to put holes in wall and have not patched it up (1 month). There are other issues too.
Best labor and employment firms in DC?
How do you get better at contract negotiations? (I’m a 4th yr. in commercial real estate) I feel like I’m generally good at pulling together an initial draft of an agreement (ex PSAs)...but I struggle when comments come back. Specifically, I struggle with reading newly proposed language & deciding what stays, what goes, & what needs to be tweaked. Are there books I can read (or CLEs I can watch) to get better at this?
Can anyone tell me what the approximate salary expectation would be for a second year associate at Fisher and Phillips (or an equivalent employment and labor firm)? If so, please let me know what market the estimate is based from (even if it’s a general “large city, small, or midsized city” reference). Thanks.
I had a review and came out feeling terrible. September was pretty much back on track but April and May I billed ~half, and while things have picked up there is really no way that I’ll hit my target. They focused so much on hours while only referring to actual feedback as almost anaside (it was good) such that I couldn’t even feel good about that. I’ve been trying everything I can to get work and my stress is through the roof. Any advice or words of wisdom? I’m feeling paralyzingly anxious.
I’m not saying anything we don’t already know, but enter your stupid time every day. I got two weeks behind and I’m basically writing my own time off as I’m scrambling to get everything in before the month-end cutoff because I can’t remember what I did.
What do you call the litigation tactic (especially in discovery) where OC hounds you to hurry up on everything, then they drag their feet and do bare minimum in return? "Speed-up slow-down" tactics?
Any tips to help stay focused? WFH has been difficult for me because it’s so hard to focus (harder than it is at the office). I know I’m so lucky to still have my job & work coming in, so I feel bad.
Are there firms that have tech transaction groups that only do actual tech transactions and not M&A support? These M&A deals are killing me!
Received a 15% increase from current firm, considering lateraling for 60%+ increase. But at my current firm, I love my partners, work is okay, WLB is good. Any advice? Any support/encouragement to still lateral?
Just a rant on how absolutely stupid the bar is. The fact that I’ve been a well-regarded attorney for many years now but just because I moved states, I need to provide references for every random volunteer position I had going back to college, plus need 8 personal references who can’t overlap with employment references, all just to be authorized to keep practicing law at the exact same law firm I’ve been at for years, is absolutely insane. Not to mention the fees are over a thousand dollars.
Assuming the end goal is to practise (corporate/commercial) law. Also assuming I’ve only just become an attorney.
1) In-house (corporate/commercial/generalist) paralegal role?
2) Boutique (immigration) attorney role that pays $12k more?

How long after starting your first job would you say it should take before you have a full, regular workload? I started my job Monday and have only gotten two projects so far. I feel like I don’t have enough work, but maybe that’s normal at the start. It’s especially hard to get work right now, because most of the partners are working remotely. Out of sight, out of mind.....
What types of on the side income/jobs are viable for attorneys and generally permitted by firms?
I’m a first year doing IP due diligence and I’m finding that it’s a great learning opportunity on what *not* to do for contracts/contracting processes.
Has anyone else found this to be true? What are your takeaways?
