I am all about making the most money I can in a job that is fulfilling.  Work is a huge part of life to me, so I don't think it's necessarily bad to devote a lot of your time/energy to your job.  Of course, you have to enjoy your job or feel that you are doing something worthwhile. 

It's important that I make time for friends and family, but it doesn't have to be TONS of time...just quality time.

I agree, that's part of why I decided I wanted to practice law.

I'd love to join this LGBT club.  It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right?  I'll show up with an armful of toys.

Right?  I mean, if people are already scared of hours...I'll take your Wachtell job!
If looks could kill, you would be an uzi.

LOL. Seriously. I WANT to work long hours (as long as I'm paid for it). To me it makes the quality time more quality. Then, if I decide to settle down or whatever, I can always take my experience and take a slightly slower job.
