Here’s to someone who taught so much to so many. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2021/02/18/rushs-final-lesson/
Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”
Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!
Who has taken a huge risk and failed? LinkedIn, business forums, and media love to normalize the “all-in” risks that led to reward, but who has a true failure story? How did or how are you working to come back from it? Life lessons exist in failure. Sharing these could hopefully help someone else facing the same crossroads.
Really? Y’all didn’t know that it was him? Well, I hope you know. Learn a lesson in democracy, yet?

Is anybody else struggling to plan during school hours? It’s my first year teaching all subjects and I CANNOT for the life of me get caught up. I feel like I’m constantly working to try and catch up.

I'm beginning to think the moral panic about CRT isn't about CRT.... dropping MLKs "I have a dream" and Susan B. Anthony 🤔 https://news.bloomberglaw.com/social-justice/texas-senate-votes-to-remove-required-lessons-on-civil-rights
Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?
You just finished teaching a skill / topic in your lesson. Children are now off to work on that skill independently: who are you targeting first to support, your students in the red or your students in the yellow?

Any pianists here? Considering getting a Roland fp30x. Thoughts/suggestions? I plan to signup for pianote and maybe some lessons as well. Ideas on a good starter digital piano as well as approach for online lessons or self learning are welcome. As for my current starting point, I don't know how to play any musical instruments, pretty much starting from scratch in my late 30s.

Any creatives impacted by Forsman Bodenfors layoffs? That agency does beautiful, powerful work.

I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!

Can you still negotiate up your salary after you're notified of promotion and new compensation package?
Tips for lateral negotiation? Does the recruiter typically do it for you or are you expected to negotiate on your own. Not trying to negotiate salary (market) but other things.
I just heard that i lost out on a FAANG position after making it through to the final round. I prepped incredibly hard for these interviews, and I'm absolutely gutted. There was one interviewer who was unengaged and I did my best to win her over but maybe she thought I was a smartass instead. Anyway, just wanted to vent. I don't know how I'm going to build up the confidence to go through a process like this again without second guessing every statement I make during an interview.
Someone in an HR session asked how Diversity and Inclusion retention/promotion efforts could negatively impact people who aren't "diverse." That's a bad look bruh.
