      ( 12:01 AM ) teahouse

Last night I was at work until 1 a.m.

The Negatives about working late: It was really quiet and eerie, and I thought of zombies. I was really late and I felt a lot of pressure to do really intense legal work while exhausted. I couldn't spend time with my husband.

The Positives about working late: It was nice and quiet, and I could turn on my radio and not worry about bothering anyone. I got to raid the pantry refrigerator and drink the leftover sodas. I got to say hi to the janitorial staff. I got to order dinner and have it paid for by the firm.

But most importantly, I was so busy with work, that I didn't have time to worry about how little my 401k is now worth in the midst of the current Wall Street financial crisis.

Essentially, the longer hours I work, the less likely I'll ever be able to retire!

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.
