  1. Y'all are laughing at zhir using the like button, but I use three screens when I am lawing. One of our younger staff uses 5 and has a second computer so he can run R and do data analytics. I think he may vape as well.
  2. You can just shave them off (the pills).
  3. Abrasion is the root cause of pilling right? Are your pants rubbing against your desk or chair?
  4. Maybe I studied for exams weird. I found re-typing notes while building a CAN to help cement everything in my brain a lot better than when I just copy pasted or deleted typed notes. Because I was forced to work with the material instead of just skimming or reading it.
  5. Transcribing the handwritten notes helps you remember the content better, in my experience.
  6. The middle portion of your post was so over the top with regards to your interests and self-professed knowledge that I assumed you were trolling. I apologize. Looking for a 1st year call position can be nerve-wracking. Good luck. Here's some helpful advice then. Money laundering is the topic de jour lately. With a law degree and a masters with some exposure to that topic you may be able to get some interesting work working for government or a crown. FINTRAC, OSRE, fed finance, CMHC, and various entities in BC (new crown called the Financial Services Authority, Policy and Legislation Division in Ministry of Finance, Gaming Policy and Enforcement, the AG) and Ontario (don't know the names but they just started a new white collar crimes group) are all working on new initiatives. Some jobs may not be lawyer jobs per say, but will require a law degree or equivalent. It may be worth checking government hiring portals and trolling through directories and cold emailing people with a resume.
  7. You just completed your articles in insurance defense and yet claim to have vast knowledge in the field of medical and health law. You've also got an LLM that focused on 11 different topics unrelated to insurance or civil lit. But the type of law you are really interested in is IP law. And you intend to tell employers about your poly marriage? During interviews I assume? Only way it could be a red flag is if you told someone unless your last name is Blackmore.
  8. https://www.grad.ubc.ca/handbook-graduate-supervision/thesis-proposal https://anth.ubc.ca/graduate/current-students/guidelines-for-thesis-proposal/ Lots of stuff on the googles.
  9. Municipalities also tend to pay really, really, really well. May not be true across Canada, but it's been my experience looking at Ontario and BC.
  10. The first time I sat down in the house to support a minister in debate he looked at me and said "who are you, go get [the old guy]". Only happened the one time with that minister though. Had some other side's counsel try some stupid mind games on me when I was being examined for discovery one time as well under the assumption I was young and could get easily flustered.
  11. I'm in the happy situation that if I run into people who are better than me at something I can try to hire / retain / include them in what ever I am doing.
