Generation X-actly.

At my last job, every time I got in the car with my boss, he made a point to tell me how lazy my generation is.  He hemmed and hawed about how we wanted everything handed to us, about how we wanted the shiny silver cup full of Dom Peringnon but we didn’t want to […]

Having it All

I just got back to work after an hour luncheon with some law students at my old law school.  The purpose of the meeting was to impart all of my glorious wisdom re: being a woman lawyer to a group of women who are in the process of, well,  becoming lawyers.  It was eye opening. […]

Radio Silence

Nothing’s ever easy, is it? After my rousingly upbeat post of Tuesday where I metaphorically sounded my barbaric yawp, I went on with my day.  I went home for lunch and when I came back, I was feeling a bit… woosy.  I stopped in the breakroom and talked to one of our paralegals about what […]

The Practice of Law

When I started working for a law firm in the fall of 2007, I hated my job. Let me clarify that I love love love the firm I worked for and loved the people I worked with… but I hated my job.  I felt stupid and underprepared.  I couldn’t fathom how I would ever learn […]

Super Me

For whatever reason, lately J has been really into superheroes. We don’t watch Spiderman or Batman or anything like that, but he is constantly talking about them anyway.  One of the things I did when I was desperate for time alone at work when he was out of daycare sick was download the entire first season […]

Tuesday Rant

There are days, like today, when I want to throw my hands up and scream “I CAN NOT DO THIS!” at the top of my lungs.  I am *this* close to tears and I really just wanted to stay tucked in bed with J and wait out the storm that is my life. I think […]

Two Crazy Weeks…

Over the course of the past two weeks, I have been in the office for approximately two full days.  The rest of my time has been spent in the car, in Atlanta, conducting hearings, attending mediations, meeting with clients or sitting through countless depositions.  As a result of my veritable absence from the office, the […]

Just one of those Days…

I have started and stopped no fewer than four blog posts today. Part of my problem is that I want to whine and complain yet I feel entirely too blessed to justify any of it.  I want to stomp my feet and rail about how my day was long and my clients were unhappy.  I […]

Working Woes

My son has reactive airway disease. This is a nice way of saying he probably has asthma but they don’t want to put it on his chart in case, by some miracle, he out grows it. This “diagnosis” has several fun side effects: (1) the rate for insurance on J alone is astronomical thanks to […]


Being a lawyer is a funny sort of job. Not funny “ha ha” just… funny.  I don’t talk a lot about being a lawyer on here because I like having a steady income and I don’t particularly want any employer to read and think “Damn, we should fire her.”  But today, I’m gonna lay it […]
