Confessions

TGIF I got approval to give someone on my team who deserves it a promotion effective 11/1. The greatest accomplishment of my last 3 months at work, hands down.

I was promoted in January and promised to get a raise sometime in the summer. Due to Covid we all got 10% pay cuts instead. When is a good time to bring this up? I should add we’ve been hiring people (5 people in my department alone) and winning new business.

Any advice on how to ask for a raise a couple of months before it's time for my yearly review? My work product and proficiency has been consistently good and my firm just hired a new attorney (not yet licenses in the state) that I have been responsible for mentoring. Mentoring a new attorney has put extra stress on my daily work load and she is paid the same as me, which makes me think it's time to discuss my value at my firm.

Bf and I got a puppy last weekend and I’m already regretting it. We are arguing more because we have different approaches to raise a puppy. I’m getting frustrated cleaning up after her and supervising, and I’m not interested in playing with her. I had a dog growing up but my parents did all the work, and I’m not sure I’m cut out for this. I feel like I should be in love and want to spend endless hours with her, but I guiltily felt relieved when I dropped her off at for an afternoon at the vet
