How is that possible?

Mercury poisoning is actually a thing. There are certain fish, including ahi and albacore tuna, that have particularly high mercury levels. You should not eat sushi more than 1x per week (or I would eat it constantly). https://www.nrdc.org/stories/smart-seafood-buying-guide

Stop at a grocery store on the way to the client site (if renting a car) and pick up stuff for lunch for the week. I usually grab pita, hummus, and turkey from the deli. My team/the client has never given me crap for bringing my own lunch

I was diagnosed with mild ADHD, and partially why I went into project management is that I wanted to challenge myself for long term initiatives. Although I’m learning amazing things, I still need a lot of support at times. In addition, multi term or year projects give me anxiety, along with a number of personal obligations (I take care of my mom). My projects include well known ERP vendors, but I am unsure if I should continue targeting long term tasks. I’m waiting on meds to see how it helps.

Are there any attorney roles that are collaborative? I’m a transactional associate and there are aspects of my job that I really enjoy, but I can’t stand how solitary it is.

I’m wondering if there’s a legal option I haven’t considered

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..."

You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
