Yeah I was feeling all bad that I worked late last night and that I took work home with me for the weekend. But at least I am drinking atm and not in an office.

I want to hang out with you on XO, but I'm afraid that since I didn't get BIGLAW I am not worthy of posting in this thread :(

last year? $210k (spring bonus)

but remember, I live in MFH, have a huge COL and pay taxes through the nose. in all honesty, people who live in TX and earn $125 have a higher QOL than I do (if you don't mind the cars and the fats)

I actually like bonus-based comp and wish we moved off of lockstep to that. but I work in a V20, and we'll never do that
