I moved with my husband and 2-year-old from Brooklyn to the NJ suburbs in November and am feeling so overwhelmingly lonely. My work isn’t very social, I don’t have any friends nearby, and throwing Covid into the mix, I feel incredibly alone. Anyone else go through this? Does it get better?

Drugs at holiday parties. What’s the etiquette?

Does your firm make allowances to billable hours for PTO/sick leave? Every firm I’ve been to has been “billing 9-12 hours a day until you make up the deficit.” That shit ain’t right, but curious if others have a different experience.
If you're negotiating a start date with a new firm and you need to give your current firm 2 weeks and want some time to yourself before starting, but you already have a vacation planned in the early fall, is it an issue to take 2-3 weeks before starting as long as you're clear that you have a pre-planned trip?
For those of you with kids and who work 55+ hours, how do you do it?? I barely can find time to pull together a meal after working from roughly 8am to 7pm. I struggle to do life things like gym, laundry, groceries, and cleaning, etc. How do you all find the time and energy?
