There’s an important meeting in two weeks and every one is planning to be in person. With three unvaccinated kids at home, I feel unsafe to be in a room full of maskless people who are making very different lifestyle choices (going out etc) than I am.

With life returning back, this is going to be the first of many such situat. What would you do?

I need help coming up with a creative title for my students.

Most of my students have limited expressive language so I’m hoping to give them options and let them vote.

I was fired last month after a short time at the company. I knew things weren't going well- it was a terrible culture fit & I was also planning my exit strategy. They wouldn't give me specific reasons other than to vaguely say it was performance related. I agree I made a few dumb mistakes (none of any dire consequence) but what kills me is that I tried really hard. I don't want to change careers but I have a deep seeded fear that no matter how hard I try, I will never be a "good attorney".
