Deliverables are done - even principal on project signed off on them - not sure what hold up is. Manager also explicitly told me they want to own client communication. Principal has asked what status is a few times- feel like my hands are tied

Ha. Why would they even care about owning client communication then?

Keep up appearances so they don’t get canned first

A lil selfish if it’s true. Client relationship is on the line!

Big law or boutique? Class of 2019 ending a District Court clerkship, and weighing these two options. Boutique is “market” pay (sub-market bonuses) with a 1950 BH req in a practice area I love. I’d only do Big Law for the “name recognition” given I’m still early in my career. Thoughts?

Toddler waking up at 4am, likes her dad more than me at the moment, nothings goes as planned, constant tantrum/cry out is driving me crazy. I know I should be calm and caring but I just want to cry.

Feeling ashamed of even thinking that but I do feel that way. Feel like a bad mom on a days like this :(
