Small city that's fairly boring with a big new build house or big city with lots of fun things in a condo + private rooftop? Both will cost me about the same and new job is fully remote so I can go to either.

This totally depends on your family situation. I’d pick the city, but I don’t have—and made a conscious choice never to have—kids. So a lot of space, schools, etc., has never been an issue for me.

For me city, kids or no kids. Need to be where the action is (and my clients, who are mostly PE)

Location location location! I'd pick the less boring location if schools are not a factor. Think about your 5-year plan too and where you want to be then.

Living alone in a city now and I'd rather move back to my small town where at least I have family/old friends. If I had a girlfriend it'd would be a different story though.

How do you deal with back pain? I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.

I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?
