Sick of my firm job, feel uninspired. Also I think I need a reset in my life. I've been out of shape since law school and in developing health problems that people don't you get until they r in their 50's.

Assuming I can save up 50k within 8 months, what should I do? What would you do? We r pretty mobile - no house, no kids, no debt, etc. maybe have kids in 1-2 yrs, maybe not.

Uh. ..get a new job that doesn't suck the life out of you.

You are employed, so you are in a strong position to leave.

You have no kids, so you are in even BETTER shape to leave.

Been applying, no bites yet. Getting frustrated.

Bigger issue is that I think I want out of law. I'd rather go to a F500 and do business dev work or go to a start-up

No way. Wife has exhibited a lot of lazy, selfish tendencies since wedding and I don't want kids, esp. anytime soon

I would try to stay in biglaw for as long as I can and save as much as possible. Biglaw is not too bad once you stop giving a shit. If they fire you, fine, cop dat severance and move on. If not, you continue to slack off and cop dat huge paycheck. You win either way. Congrats.

My firm doesn't give more than 1 wk severance pay. But your pt is made. It's just that I really hate it here. I'd consider this option if I could reliably save 125-150k/yr.

How much do you have saved? Plans for any kids? Without kids you are geographically flexible.
