Is the real benefit to industry that your hours are flatter? I feel like I’ve been dragging through the summer but my average hours since June 1st end up being 41.2 hours per week. Used about 100 hours of PTO too not including holidays. Soon I’ll go up to about 50-55/wk through Oct 15th. Maybe I have it better than I thought?
I currently am trying to take two days off, got a mediation statement from OC, naturally I had to read it, and then I emailed the partner offering to do any follow up on the statement tomorrow.

''Tis the season of holiday parties. What's the craziest thing that's ever happened at yours?
Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?

On PTO during CRT results time. Don't want PTO spoiled by it, good or bad. Ask partner for it so it's before I leave? Or wait until after 4th of July holiday? 🤔
