Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
HI EVERYBODY it's Saturday morning where I am, and having worked nights in the office for just about every day of the past week, clearly it is such that WORK/ME = OTP, so here I am again on Saturday, for something that is due Saturday afternoon and cannot be done outside of the office! I must say that being in on Saturday morning at 8.20am and having to come back tomorrow on Sunday to work for something due Monday morning is an experience that I SINCERELY HOPE will not be replicated ANYTIME soon, but such is life and the file that I'm on that I'm sure it may be too much to hope for.

This is why I said this perfectly describes the life of a young lawyer-in-training. In fact, this is true of my office + the associate's office now, and this is me!

Having to suit up for work every day makes me dress down during the weekends, so I write to you in jeans, track shoes, and my Gurren-Lagann T-shirt. (I'm wearing my black jacket over it, so it looks respectable if you ignore the flames around the bottom of my T-shirt) There, I said I'd wear it to the office one day! And so I have! It's the one that proclaims, "YOURS IS THE DRILL THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS", which is really funny, because I have to do research on alter egos, which is not about Yu-Gi-Oh, but about PIERCING THE CORPORATE VEIL with YOUR LAW! ... oh, that sounded so bad.

Building up a law case is like fixing the Millenium Puzzle together, if the Millenium Puzzle was first taken apart, and then hurled into the biggest refuse dump you could ever imagine in your life. ♥ And then you have to trawl through the entire ♥ garbage ♥ dump ♥ for all the pieces of the puzzle, and then ♥ you get to play at putting them together. The problem is, sometimes you don't get all the pieces, and sometimes the puzzle you put together doesn't quite ~ look the way your client wants it to look. But hey! You play with the hand you were dealt.

Which is amusing when you're reading and you see lawyers deciding QUICK WE MUST PLAY THE CONFLICT CARD!

Also, thank you, Gurren Lagann: now whenever I read, "attempts to pervert the course of justice"... I think about KAMINA.

Good morning ^^ It's about 10:10 here XD

I'll probably be on aim all this weekend though ^^ or msn, either one. Hopefully we can talk, if not sorry DX

Good luck lawyering! <333
12th-Jan-2008 03:14 am (UTC) - I need a better Simon icon for you on this LJ.
*grin* It is so unfair that we're twelve hours apart! Or maybe this is a good thing, if I keep insane hours? ;)

I'll do my best to get on AIM/MSN! I'd love to talk to you. *beams*

Thank you! *smiles* I'll need all the luck I can get. ♥
12th-Jan-2008 04:10 am (UTC) - Re: I need a better Simon icon for you on this LJ.

Where exactly do you live? I'm guessing somewhere in the UK?
12th-Jan-2008 03:53 pm (UTC) -
*grin* Surprisingly close! I was actually living in the UK until one and a half years ago.

I'm in Asia now.
12th-Jan-2008 03:25 am (UTC)
Gambatte Nii chan~!
I'm sure you'll do great! XD

*I shall use a cute nia icon to counter yours.*
12th-Jan-2008 03:54 pm (UTC)
I love Nia icons! ♥ I can never have enough of them on my LJ! ♥

Thank you so much! ♥ I really needed it :)))))

Niichan got his wig today! *so happy* *and so relieved*

...And to think I wanted to study Law. XD (Actually, I still do, but Providence decided that I study something else instead.)

Well since you like Law and all that, surely you'll be able to pull through these few torturing days. =] Best of luck!
12th-Jan-2008 03:57 pm (UTC)
! I love your icon! HE'S SO CUTE. ♥

*grin!* Sometimes you find that life's path is leading you to exactly where you need to be. I hope it's that way for you. ♥

That said, though, I know several people who made mid-career changes to law: a lawyer I met once used to be in the police before switching (bit of a natural progression, he said, having worked on the other side of lawyers for so long), and another was actually an engineer before switching (in his late twenties), and another fellow law student was 35 and he'd been a gravedigger before.

Thank you so much! ♥ I really need it. *grin*

... I feel your pain. ^^;

I've got to leave for work in a couple of minutes, but I wanted to show you this first:

The Isis Adventure! xD

There's this adorable Belgian version of Grandpa's Gamu Shoppu at the mall I work! I always go there during my break to see if the Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokémon decks have been reduced in price yet (sadly they never are!). AND NOW THEY HAVE A MILLENIUM PUZZLE WHUT.

They're insanely expensive, though. You can get them engraved with a message... or get a limited edition pink one. O.o;

I keep thinking this is totally something Yuugi (or you? xD) would like to have. I showed my mother last night and she said BUT IT'D LOOK GOOD AS DECORATION when I told her it was much too expensive. *DIES!*
12th-Jan-2008 04:11 pm (UTC)

OOOOH SHIIIINY *____________________* It looks a bit like a bowling ball, don't you think? ;) But I like the sparkly yellow and blue, it reminds me of Jimmy colours!



It's more something Yuugi than me, but it's cute! :D

13th-Jan-2008 06:55 pm (UTC)
That totally reminded me of that Kyou Kara Maou quote: WHEN SHARED JOY IS DOUBLED AND SORROW IS HALVED! ♥!

... only you could link Jimmy to ancient Egypt. O.o;

The game shop is really expensive, though! I'm biding my time in buying cards? The Pokémon cards I really want are only out in Japanese at the moment - and there doesn't seem to be a Yami deck? *laughs!* The Yuugi and Jou ones are €19.95 and the Kaiba one is a hilarious €9.95. ;)

The millenium ball is €165! *shocked!*
12th-Jan-2008 01:53 pm (UTC)
You're comparing your life to Gurren Lagann? Cool.
So you work now? Not study?

Ah, analogies. Me like.
It must be great to be able to relate your work to something that really interests you, that is, if you don't already liek your work. :D
12th-Jan-2008 04:07 pm (UTC)
Work is a little bit like the icon I'm using now. ;)

I have a two-track mind that runs on RL and fandom at the same time. The cross-track occurences are funny. ;)

I work now! *grin* And with luck I'll be working for a while! No more studying for a while yet, I should hope, I feel like I've been studying for years.

*grin* I usually like my work, but all the time, I'll find some way to link it to fandom. My two obsessions (law + fandom) must GATTAI. ♥ FOR DOUBLE THE LOVE AND KICKASS!
13th-Jan-2008 10:58 am (UTC)
Oh poop. I accidentally replied to your journal instead of this comment. Sorry!
13th-Jan-2008 01:26 pm (UTC)
IT'S OKAY SWEETIE! ♥ I understood. ♥

13th-Jan-2008 11:48 pm (UTC)
Because I didn't make them.
Except for the one I'm using, but that's cause the cuteness is intrinsic. ;D
12th-Jan-2008 02:25 pm (UTC)
And so I have! It's the one that proclaims, "YOURS IS THE DRILL THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS", which is really funny, because I have to do research on alter egos, which is not about Yu-Gi-Oh, but about PIERCING THE CORPORATE VEIL with YOUR LAW! ... oh, that sounded so bad.

oh, chris. ♥

i don't know why LJ refused to let me post a comment in the morning (i think my LJlogin is buggy )': ), but you better not be in the office now, and don't stress out too much about work mmkay. frustrating as it is now i'm sure it'll be worth it soon. :)
12th-Jan-2008 04:01 pm (UTC) - ♥♥♥ you for having a Gurren Lagann icon!

♥s you right back ♥

LJ is evil! It's been buggy to me too. EVIL.

XD! I left at about 12pm and went back in to the office at 6pm, left again at 7.30pm. oh workz. Eheh, I suppose day-to-day it's not so bad, it's just realising that I'll be working twelve days in a row (and pretty much nights on ten of them, too) without a single complete day off that makes me want to do the "Ore wo dare da to omotte yagaru?!?!" BATTLE CRY.
12th-Jan-2008 05:04 pm (UTC)
Another excellent "OMG I want to get the hell out of here" song:

<a href="http://www.mediafire.com/?fwy9g0ngmwn>It's Five O'Clock Somewhere</a>
12th-Jan-2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
Oh, bastard! How I wish I could edit my comments. Here's some proper linkage:

It's Five O'Clock Somewhere
13th-Jan-2008 01:22 pm (UTC)
*loves* You're adorable! Thank you so much for the song, I'm downloading it now! ♥ I SO RELATE TO ITS LYRICS. ♥ The title reminds me of this song, Five O'Clock World, by the Vogues. It was from the Big Fish soundtrack, and it was lovely. ;)
13th-Jan-2008 02:08 pm (UTC)
Oh wow, those are lovely lyrics! I'll have to download that song.
13th-Jan-2008 10:56 am (UTC)
Oh man. That looks really scary. D:
Working to pay off your college/uni fees?
I see. Extra drive. I'm trying to find time so that I can study more on my japanese. (;D)
Speaking of law+fandom, have you played phoenix wright?
13th-Jan-2008 01:25 pm (UTC)
*grin* Very broadly, working to pay off my expenses would cover it! ;) I'm actually working to qualify. ;)

I wish you all the best on your Japanese studies! When I met you your Japanese was pretty good, so it should be EVEN BETTER by the time we next meet? ;)

*grin* Phoenix Wright makes me want to strangle something for the inaccuracies. Maybe it's that I'm young and can't separate it from my real work, but I go D: at it so badly. And want to yell OBJECTION YOU'RE DOING IT SO, SO, SO WRONG.
13th-Jan-2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
I sure hope so. :D

Oh, hmm.... Maybe they did it so that it would look more interesting. (But you do get penalties for yelling objection at the wrong time. (in the game) )

Anything like that in the court?
13th-Jan-2008 12:10 pm (UTC)
ehehehe. like the innuendo
13th-Jan-2008 01:18 pm (UTC) - HI SWEETHEART! *HUGS YOU*
Hi sweetie! ♥ So glad to hear from you! ♥

I AM SO HAPPY YOU LIKE THE INNUENDO! At the next WC gathering, I will bring this heaven-piercing WONDERFUL and show it to you! ♥ I think you'll find it funny! :D
(Deleted comment)
13th-Jan-2008 01:57 pm (UTC)
HI SWEETIE ♥ IT IS TOTALLY okay, I have been reading law cases and everything you say makes much more sense than they do! ♥ *loves youuuu*

I am sad that you have not been sleeping regular hours, but hope that it was FOR FUN, if not: HAVE MY HUUUGS and also LOVE. ♥ I hope RL was FUN in the meantime! ♥ And the Internet (and I) will always be here. ♥
