There are many ways in which I would do things differently were I one of my bosses. But lets pretend that no amount of positive change would have prevented me as employee walking away. After an ...


Today is another day that proves several things to me. (1) I need to be getting more sleep than I am. Hopefully, that can be addressed during my “Self-Care Break.” (2) I don’t mind driving to Am...


There are some things that happen equally in Prosecution and Defense. However, how you respond to them demonstrates perfectly the kind of person you are. For example: losing a case. As a Prosecu...


So, this Monday may be my worst on record! Last night after getting home late-ish from the Work Event, it was off to bed. I slept until about 12:14 a.m. Couldn’t get back to sleep. Went into...


I like how I can write things like my last entry and get responses. Agree, disagree, at least usually the responses aren’t venomous trashy ad hominem illogical bullshit. And I seriously appreci...


This weekend, I have had two male colleagues and 1 female colleague tell me “With the success of Fifty Shades, clearly women fantasize about men with wealth and power dominating them. But try it...

I am going to be far happier when Work doesn’t get to claim any of my Weekend time! I did get to hang with friends a bit. I did watch the first two full seasons of Dragon Ball Z abridged. I did...


(Picking up from the entry that was eaten as the site went down) With Prosebox down, that is… difficult. I don’t want to be a whiny bitch about it because I pay nothing for this service. I have...


I have a feeling that the best way forward with this today will be to simply keep it open all day and add to it as time goes on. I woke up on time today, felt too much pain, said “fuck it” and w...


This would have been a simple edit inclusion on a recent entry but I opted for a different path. This evening ended with the perfect reasons to (1) get out and (2) expect surprise and difficulty ...


So… my head is a weird place right now. It is usually a weird place but… even more so right now. Like… I’m feeling anxiety… just from the idea of what I’m about to do. Because “self love” and “...


The city this morning is covered in white. The first time since 2015 that more than 3 to 5 inches of snow accumulated. Which of course makes it difficult to really do much of anything unless yo...


I don’t know if this is an entry or creative writing. I don’t much care either way, actually. It just.... complicates where I put this. The snow continues. MASSIVE (unbelievably massive) cra...


I need these. I need these little reminders of why I am moving on. A few today. It is snowing BUCKETS outside. In some places in Iowa, this will be the most snowfall they’ve received for 3 yea...


For those who have been curious and/or waiting with breaths held: Upon the advice of my father, I have chosen to deliver my resignation letter on Friday of this week. After discussing it, we agr...


I know I don’t need more reasons to leave.... and I know this is just a standard part of working with International Clients.... but this is yet another reason why I’ve been saying **you need to h...


This morning, I had a hearing at 8 a.m. That hearing went until 10:04. This morning I had a meeting at 10:00 a.m. That went until 11:30 a.m. So… first one in the office by a solid hour. When...


Another reason to be a prosecutor besides making a lot more money, driving a lot less, and not being required to celebrate when criminals aren’t held accountable? A prosecutor on a case I’m worki...


(1) Bloody eye twitch. Still present. Of course it is. It will be, too. Until I get less stress and/or more sleep. (2) I… was going to write my resignation letter last night. But I didn’t. ...


When I resign from here? I will expect surprise… anger… but I am curious to see which will control. If they will say, “You suck anyway” or “We think this is a mistake.” We’ll see. TONIGHT I f...


I do not have my resignation letter finished to a degree that I feel it is ready to be turned in. I will be working towards this tonight. I woke up before my alarm this morning due to stomach pa...


Clearly one of the things I’m dealing with in Therapy is my difficulty in making healthy decisions to protect myself and/or set up healthy boundaries. Abusive Ex-Girlfriend… people ask when I fir...


Yeah, call me any name you want to but I can’t stand immigration work. THE ONLY EXCEPTION is when I can help someone in an Asylum case. But everything else? Just pisses me off. Even when I ca...


So this morning I had another 30 minute long “conversation” from Chinese Boss on how I suck at immigration, I’m not a good employee, and a veiled threat that I could be fired at a whim. Conside...
