This has been my life the past few days. I have started my final year of law school and have been running in a dozen different directions. But for now, I have a story for you.
I have been bothering the hell out of my dad for the past… year?? to help me network for jobs for post graduation. Being cut from the same cloth as I am, he has been on it like white on rice, but somehow… things all appear to be happening RIGHT NOW. Like RIGHT NOW. As in, I am freaking out RIGHT NOW. So yesterday I emailed him a long list of my intentions and goals with regard to job hunting. Including places that I am considering applying, places that I have applied, etc. I also pretended to have a really bad Russian accent for half of the e-mail. Zis iz ze plan! Yep. I am awesome. I know it. I also used the term “womp womp” and included how my day was going. So. If you hadn’t guessed it – this was a personal email. PERSONAL! OKAY?!
So dad just forwards it on to a woman I have been trying to meet with for the past three months. And bada-bing I have a meeting with her. What the what?! No, but seriously. WHAT?
I did what I do, cancelled my plans and ran to the meeting like a crazy woman. And then we talked about her hair and my dad and the fact that I had left my blazer elsewhere. Whoops. But we also talked about my job experience and what I am looking to achieve and my career goals. I mean, there was no hiding the ball with her, she already knew my game plan. I liked her. She liked me. I think I start tomorrow? She isn’t the greatest at responding to e-mails. So I said, here are my details, see you Thursday. Love, Jen!
What the what?
