This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?

It’s likely that I’ll be getting a significant amount of money in stocks when my company IPOs. I’m still under 25 and while I have my finances pretty stable and understood, this is going to be more money than I’ve ever dealt with in my life. For others who went through an IPO - is it worth getting a fiduciary or advisor of some kind to help me through the process? If so - how would I go about finding a good one?

Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??
