Close friend’s mother is borderline insane. She’s a hoarder and keeps getting cats that she kills. She claims they “get depressed” and loads them up with medicine to the point that they die. She goes thru about 2-3 cats a year. Any advice?
I am an aspiring entrepreneur and want to start a business in future for sure. I have a few ideas but nothing concrete, or close to being a start up yet. I work in tech, but a generalist - have done sales, delivery operations etc. trying to get experience in as many areas as possible before I go on my own. I dnt know where to start the journey. Are their any books or other material I can read/reference to think and plan about my entrepreneurship journey. I m in mid 40s based in t2 city US east.
When they introduce your role on the project as 'he does everything, he is the glue that holds the project together' they really mean 'he does all the bitch work we don't want to do'

When your previous mid-sized agency posts a blackout picture and message renouncing racism... but while you worked there they spontaneously fired the ONLY Black person employed there due to sudden “performance issues”. The bandwagon is packed to full capacity today. 💅
I'll make it simple. I've been doing daily streams of myself going through LeetCode questions starting from the easiest all the way to the hardest. My goal is to do ALL of them. Yep, ALL of them.
If that interests you and you want to join me in this journey, I am about to start my stream over at www.youtube.com/c/leetcodelive.
Watch me make mistakes, hear me struggle and develop and optimized algorithm.

How does everyone handle managing their caseload and utilizing their paralegal(s)? I litigate primarily, with occasional small transactional projects that come up in the course of those files. It’s usually real estate related—drafting a purchase agreement, deed, etc. My firm is not one where we specialize so much that each case has the same process as every other case. So it often feels like I’m having to tackle something brand new in each and every case. (cont.)
Just found out that not everyone in my office is "sold" on the vaccine. Meanwhile, I'm going to be first in line having a pre-existing condition and family members that are high risk. I, apparently wrongly, assumed that the question of vaccination wouldn't have even arisen in my small legal office, but here I am freaked out about the future...

When will I find my passion? I’m a criminal prosecutor chasing PSLF (5 years left). I am just not that into it. My wife is a teacher and loves her job so much she could work 16 hour days. I am jealous. My passion is my family and my job is just a paycheck. How can I figure out what I really want to do? Do I want to get that obsessed with work? Help!
Curious. With the new class of first year associates starting, do you have any interesting thoughts/observations/perspectives on “Gen Z” lawyers?

How much time per week does everyone spend in the office (not so much a billables question, just time in the office pre-COVID orders)?
I’ve been negotiating a settlement on behalf of a client. OP is a major corp. we’ve gone back and forth for months, almost a year. Finally came to a final agreement and we’re reviewing for final signature. Then client is reviewing and decides they want something else modified. It’s a point of contention. OP has said no. Should I communicate this to client before pushing back against OP’s rejection of the mod?
Hi! My husband and I are considering a geographic move from the NE to the SE (Atlanta, specifically). I’ve done preliminary research into the job market and I’m curious what the culture around hours is respective of the lower salaries I’m seeing. For instance, I typically work 1900-2100 hours a year on cravath’s scale + year end bonus. I’m also told the large Atlanta firms expect 1900-2000. So how do they justify the comp reduction? Is it not a “true” 1900? No flak if you don’t hit it?

HELP! I’ve been contacted by a small private security firm who wants me to be their “on call” counsel. They describe it as a lot of contract review, drafting NDAs, etc. but also being there if/when they need to license a vehicle, defend civil suit, etc. It’s overwhelming but sounds like a really great opportunity. I have enough background to be comfortable with contracts and litigation, but don’t want to get myself into a mess. Has anybody else ever had a job like this?
Ethics and Side Hustles: With side hustles for everyone apparently 'a thing' for everyone now, I took a look at content writing on Upwork. Putting aside the employment contract stuff, I am having my doubts about whether lawyers can actually produce content.
For example, there was a job proofreading recipes - would a lawyer be on the hook if an allergen wasn't caught? Likewise, writing informational articles about financial services - could that come back on a lawyer in some way?
