Any idea on repeal of SALT (State And Local Taxes) cap in the new set of tax bills? I don’t see a lot of information on this. With high property prices/taxes in HCOL areas, it looked like previous admin strategically targeted California and NY residents. But I don’t see Democrats helping to restore confidence within their core base

I have been an attorney for a little over a year and have worked at my firm since graduating law school in 2019. I am very unhappy in my current position and with my firm overall, and I have started looking for a new job. The State Bar is hiring attorneys in the Office of Chief Trial Counsel. Any thoughts on whether working for the State Bar is a good idea? Terrible idea? I’d love any insight before submitting an application.

I have a rough time at work for some reason I can perform really well for short periods of time but as soon as I know I'm doing okay I get lazy again, I feel like my life is just never going to be complete and it's going to be as empty as it is now forever. I don't want to lose my job but honestly it's hard to see the point in going forward beyond not being on the street. No essential vitality animates me I just learned forward like some sort of unwieldy machine.
