I’m a designer in the planning/landscape architecture dept. of a CE firm. Extremely frustrated that after 4+ years and multiple asks, I’m not getting the in-field construction experience I’ve asked for. I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?

Any advice on getting involved on the ground floor of a NFT/DeFi project? I’m an M&A lawyer by trade (non-technical background), but actively seeking to create a project in the NFT/DeFi spaces.

3rd year attorney. Billing 2100 plus a year. Anyone else just get burnt to a point where you just can’t motivate yourself for weeks straight? I feel like I’ve hit that wall. I always have so much to do. And 80 percent of it is such a drag with no excitement. I see partners in their 50s doing similar stuff and think to myself I’m gunna just blink and be their age one day. But yet, we make good money and are in a well-established and trusted profession, so I feel like a whiner. Thx for listening
