...when does the fun start? Currently doing recruiting and school 24/7 and a 2 hour Happy Hour catch-up with a classmate outside in the freezing cold means I will sleep 4 hours tonight instead of 6 hours because of the crushing amount of work to do.

What school?



Establish priorities and go from there. Seems like you have too many rn which isn’t sustainable

Priority: Tech PM or PMM

Opportunity: Ability to network, apply, and interview at more companies than ever before. Lower opportunity cost when prioritizing recruiting due to less of a social scene right now.

Challenge: Other students are in the same boat plus the uncertainty of getting an interview (have been rejected from companies I’ve been referred to). Add this to the uncertainty of which company will post what type of internship and how many interns they will take.

Result: Casting a wide net, juggling many varied opportunities, and going all in on as many opportunities as possible. Classes are deprioritized but still take time. Social life is deprioritized except for the limited human interaction to preserve mental health.

Lately I’ve been contemplating about my work and think does it really make me happy or feel passionate about it. But yesterday I went to get some Mediterranean food and thought I should work there over the weekends and sharpen my skills in making kababs. Since I enjoy cooking I’m thinking to go work there over the weekend as a cook and learn about the business and think if I really want to do that and open up my own shop. What do you guys suggest I should do?

Developed carpal tunnel in law school and I think it’s affecting my weight lifting. I wear lifting gloves to help with my grip (and sweaty palms) but even with those, I still find myself struggling to not drop the bar/dumbbell after holding onto it for more than 10-15 seconds, even when the weight isn’t very heavy. My trainer says I also have knots in my wrists and palms and even when he’s massaged them out, I still struggle with this. Any tips on how to fix it? Should I try wrist straps?
