Confession: I wish there were more minorities working at the firms and clients. I am so sick and tired of acting all “corporate” and feeling like everything just has to be serious all the time.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out.

Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
