Honeymoon destinations for November? Was planning on the Ritz in the Maldives on points but the remote prospect of testing positive while in the Maldives and having to pay ~$2000 per night for a 14 day mandatory quarantine is daunting.

Remote work opportunities? I'm looking for firms to look into. Currently in health. I think this will be disruptive (given we can't be on site... and my firm isn't used to delivering remotely).
I definitely have leanings towards the FIRE movement. Has the WFH environment/dip in market swayed anyone’s opinions one way or another?
Is there anyone at the manager level or above that hasn't installed work email / phone software on their phone? I've never had a reason to use my phone for work because most of my time as a senior has been during wfh. I'd like to delay the inevitable for as long as possible and curious if anyone at the higher levels has somehow managed to avoid this.

Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours

What is a good way to find a mentor at my firm? There are a couple attorneys/partners I think would be open to mentoring but how can I make it happen?

How have you been able to develop a mentor-mentee relationship? Any advice esp. during wfh times would be much appreciated!

Anyone ever put off using PTO days and instead “worked from home” during a planned vacation before they resigned in order to cash out the PTO later? I really don’t want to carry my work laptop when I leave on vacation, but the idea of cashing out the PTO when I end up leaving the job (not yet planned or official) is real nice.
I'm sorry to hear the news about layoffs. If you haven't been affected, I hope it stays that way. Otherwise, good luck on your exit process and job hunt fellas. It's not an easy job.

Moms from NY: how many weeks post partum were you on short term disability? I recently had a call with the leave team at my firm and was surprised to hear that typically STD after birth is 6-8 weeks, depending on the type of birth. My question is: anyone here returned to work before 6 weeks? Asking because I want to recuperate for 2 weeks after birth, then go back to work and use the remaining maternity weeks later in a year. I wonder if this will be allowed. The Leave team person made it soun

Any trial attorneys in here who can speak to hours at trial? The partners who I work for must have some kind of pharmaceutical help, because on a 2 week trial they are expecting everyone (partners, associates, and paralegals) to operate on 1-2 hours of sleep per night and be ready to go and be flawless in court all day, every day. This is my first jury trial so I have no context for knowing whether this is normal or not. I had a bench trial that was a lot of work, but not like this.
