I might get detention


Recommended Posts

I might get in touble, anyway. I'm not too worried, but I want to do the right thing. my billable hours for January were really low here. my time spent on LCSC was only part of the cause, but I need to ease up a bit and commit to spending more time at work, actually working. IMAGINE THE NERVE OF THEM.

I'm not going anywhere, I just need to back off a little on the weekdays. I just didn't want anyone to think I was losing interest, or that my devotion to the people here who saved my

a%@ over the past eight months was waning at all. in addition to the information and support I derive from all of you, I feel I owe a lifetime debt of gratitude.

mom had an MRI on Friday to check the progress of her healing from that mini-stroke, and I will post her full update whenever I get those results.

your friend and bunny,

Amie, I can fully understand about those nasty billable hours. As you know, my son left the firm he was with because of billable hours pressure. I know you love your job and the firm you are with, so pay attention to details, gal! I know that I get in the same situation here at work. Hey...gotta pay those bills!

I do not think I can ever take a job with billable requirements again, I am too fragile to work that many hours :( Which is kind of sad given how mcuh time and energy was spent on my education. I think the stress of it is how my fibromyalgia type of symptoms kicked in.

For those who are curious and don't know about billable hours in a lot of law firms, to make your yearly requirement, you typically have to work on average 10 hours each day; AND if you want to take a vacation, it is not really a vacation b/c you also have to make up that time to make your yearly billable hours. So for 5 days off, you need to find another 50 hours somewhere. Did I know this before law school? Heck no!!!!!!!!! Suck a duck. :roll:

And the worst part of it is that most of the time it is not even like you are doing anything enjoyable or important :)

Oh my gosh the tramatic memories of billable hour days you just brought back for me Bunny :) I need chocolate just thinking about it.
