Today was a strangely hectic, pull-my-hair-out, growling-under-my-breath kind of good day. It was so busy and filled with so many frustrating things that it was almost difficult to focus on the fact that the busy-ness and frustration stemmed from good things.
First, I woke up early for a good reason that turned out to be no good reason at all. I had a “call back” interview for 10:00 am this morning. Unfortunately, when I walked in, the Lawyer I was supposed to interview with looked surprised and said, “Weren’t you supposed to come in next Tuesday?”
I said, “Well, I actually got the email to come in today.”
He nodded, “I see.”
Then he sent me to his secretary. I basically just talked logistics with the secretary and got free parking.
Despite that, it’s a good thing to get a call back interview. Even better when they say, “Start Tuesday.”
Secondly, I got home and received a phone call from another employer. Argh! I wanted to work for this employer but he had not returned my phone calls or emails prior to the morning’s meeting with the previous employer. So, after I had agreed to work with Employer 1, I get a phone call from Employer 2.
I’m still going to the callback interview on Thursday.
Despite the frustrating circumstance, it’s a good thing to get a call back from the firm I wanted to work with first.
Third, OCI Panel — an interviewing panel organized by my fraternity for the 1Ls. It was a hassle and very, very frustrating getting volunteers to help run the panel. However, it is a good thing to even be able to put together a panel and run it successfully. Much less, two in one day!
Fourth, I was wearing tights in school today with a tiered turtle-neck dress. It was a hot day. Not comfortable. But, I looked cute. And my roommate let me borrow her pointy-toed flat black boots.
And finally, funny gchat conversations with my bf.
BF: what is up with this comment?
Hahahaha! Who indeed?
And finally, I was really happy to get in touch with my old high school AP Literature teacher. He is definitely one of my favorite teachers of all time. In fact, he may have been the only person who has ever supported my writing. He definitely made an impact in my life and I’m so excited to get back in touch with him.
Long, hectic day but a good day.
