Home for a few weeks. Being able to prepare my own food, go to my own gym, sleep in my own bed is pretty great. No free Woodford on Thursdays though.

How do you deal with a partner who makes you feel terrible about not just your work but yourself? This is a female partner who is older and a leader in her practice area. She comments on how I speak and it veers into personal criticism. Anything I offer to a project she shuts down, but if her favored paralegal says the same thing, she publicly praises her. I feel like they tag team me and unfortunately I can't completely stop working with them.
