Defining Moments

This has been the work week from hell.

Every night this week, I've been stuck at the office really late.

Which is annoying, because the place I work now was sold to me as a "lifestyle firm" - which I suppose was meant to justify the low salary I was offered.

Last night I was sitting at my desk until around 1 a.m.

Fortunately I had my radio on and was able to listen to Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.

I'm still completely unedecided on whom I'm going to vote for. But if this speech goes down in history as a major event, my grandchildren may ask me where I was when he gave it.

"Well, I was at work. Trying to finish up a stupid project for a mean partner who gave me an artificial deadline because she was going on vacation for Labor Day and wanted to take credit for the work I'd done to impress the client. Yeah, good times."



Post a Comment

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
