Thanks for your kind words on my last post. I should close comments on posts like that because it actually makes me feel crappy when people write and say, "Cheer up!" or "You're great!" or "You're so pretty!" I don't want people to think I'm fishing for compliments. I just occasionally write something to share with you what goes on in my head. Now you know. As an aside, I don't think any of those things I reported below are unique to me. I think lots and lots of smart, attractive, confident, fun, capable young women feel this way. Some days are better than others.
This week has been an interesting week. At least half a dozen times this week I've thought, "I can't believe I get paid to do this!" I am deliriously happy in this job. There are good days and there are bad days. But I know I'm in the right job when I'm thankful to get a paycheck for it, because I'd do it without a paycheck if I had to. (You know, if I were independently wealthy and jobs like this didn't pay... then yeah, I'd totally do it anyway). I have a few really interesting cases with interesting legal issues and interesting clients. And I LOVE that this is all mine. The clients are mine, the motions are mine, the strategy is mine. I marvel at the fact that I get money in my bank account twice a MONTH instead of twice a YEAR and I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO PAY IT BACK!
This job rocks. I hope you love your job as much as I love mine.
There will be an end to my navel-gazing at some point. I'll write something substantive one day.
(But ooooh, I must look good today, because I've had two marriage proposals from strangers. It's been a while!)
