Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
So, okay, I got ABRUPTLY VOLUNTEERED FOR this legal clinic on Wednesday. It was on Thursday night, and then they were HERE YOU GO THE CASELIST ♥ and that's when I realised I had to prepare seven entirely new cases between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evening. I went into PANIC LOCKDOWN and then I thought Hell, if I can do this, there is going to be so little that is going to scare me after that.



oh God, last night I got back past 10pm (volunteering at a legal clinic), and tonight I got back near midnight (... LAWSOC EVENT)- and the crazy thing is that I'm really starting to realise that you can actually wake up thinking about your job, go to sleep thinking about your job, dream about your job, and if you wanted to you could CHOOSE to hang with only people from or associated with your job, and the saddest part of the whole deal is part of me thinks it can't get much better than this.

BUT PLEASE I MUST ADVISE YOU. If you are ever attacked by someone with a can of insecticide, please do not under any circumstances open your mouth.

Ladies and gentlemen,


WELCOME TO MY JOB

oh god. On the Thursday morning I was feeling so smashed by the clinic stressout that before going to work (ALL BEFORE OFFICE HOURS AT 9AM, OKAY) I curled up in Starbucks and had coffee and did my case preparation, and happened to pick up a paper lying on the sofa. I think it was one of those incredibly pretentious and wordy foreign newspapers in the line of the Wall Street Journal (I AM SORRY. I READ CURRENT AFFAIRS FOR THE LAW. I SUCK.) AND IT HAD THIS CARTOON. And I was so tired and such a nervous wreck, but it made me grin (as did the incredibly cheerful guy who was behind the counter at Starbucks. Made my morning, I tell you. And I tell you, service staff make a difference.


also I am one of those really freaky people that always play this secret game with service staff, especially if they look really tired and grouchy: I always have this private competition with myself to see if I can make them smile. So, say I go to a subway counter to get a top-up and the person looks really grouchy, I always smile my brightest smile and thank them and tell them to have a good day. AND SOMETIMES IT WORKS AMAZINGLY. ♥ There was this reallllly cranky-looking guy who was behind the counter at the train station, and I did the smile thing, and HE SMILED BACK. And it was doubly incredibly because I was SO SUPERSURE THAT HE WOULD NOT SMILE BACK BUT WANTED TO TRY ANYWAY.








... I think this last one is probably a joke only lawyers find funny :(((

I DON'T KNOW WHY ALL THE COMICS ARE GOING ON TO LEGAL/COURTROOM THEMES THIS WEEK. ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING. Even Peanuts has Snoopy as a "World Famous Attorney" defending Peter Rabbit and Trying To Prove to Your Honour that "My client never had any intention of going into Mr. Mcgregor's garden."



Also I got these amazing quizzes from adayume:

GUYS YOU HAVE TO TRY Wordle.





It is bloody embarrassing how much SPANNER is splashed all over the place. SHOUICHI TOO.

And you can make your results look different, too:



lolololol mafia persona:





So once I wrote this fic, which had, essentially, Spanner as the boss, and Gokudera as his right-hand man, with the both of them raising chibi!Tsuna. THEN I CHANGED ALL THE NAMES, but anyway,



ALSO THE NEXT ONE. I am always of the opinion that these seme/uke classifications never put me in the right place, ever, but in particular I demand a retrial for HIS ONE Seme/Uke quiz. I tied so perfectly in my result that the quiz had to give me a tiebreaker question to settle it once and for all, and EVEN THOUGH MY PERCENTAGES STILL WERE PERFECTLY EVEN, AND STILL I GOT:



THIS MISERABLE EXCUSE OF A RESULT

My percentages tie perfectly for Gentle Seme and Optimistic Uke, GODDAMIT.

ROFL. I'm both the most loving seme and the lowest of the ukes. RETRIAL.


The SEME or UKE Quiz
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as The Optimistic UKE

You are the kindest, most sweet, and cutest of all UKE kind. This is not really a bad thing, actually it's very good. You may be the lowest level of UKE but you are also the happiest and most adorable. You are often a fan of things you can snuggle with and cartoons will never grow boring for you. You smile a lot and nothing ever seems to get you down which makes you a great match for the Gentle SEME. Be warned, though, my Uke-friend.. rough times await you if a Homicidal SEME lingers too close. You would do well to befriend a Sorrowful UKE as I'm sure your happy-go-lucky attitude will balance out their depression. On my last note I will say that ropes, whips, and chains aren't your fancies even if they are tempting - I'd stick to just the simple stuff if I were you.

! You do? ♥ It is quite the hilarious comic, although I sadly don't read it as much as I should.

It was really bizarre. I read Dilbert before I worked (as a student, part-time) in an office, and after I did, I realised all the horrible things they said were TRUE.

Like that one about using interns as staple-removers.

I was paid for being one so I'm not complaining. :D

I believe in the existence of the angry!secretary and the accompanying cubicle rage.

My HR director had a strip of Catbert, the Evil HR Director on her door.

But thank god my boss was not pointy-haired.

Internship sometimes works out as a great opportunity to become best friends with the photocopying machine (among other things). This is actually quite useful! Realistically speaking.

I believe in everything. Everything.

I love Ratbert. And the Phil, the Prince of Insufficient Light. DARN YOU TO HECK and alllll that good stuff.

I have this book (which is now falling apart from a combination of bad binding and intensive reading) that's the Dilbert strips compiled with Scott Adams' scribbing all over it, telling you how he came up with the concepts and characters. A disturbing amount of them are based on real-life.

I believe in the management-speak. "I want to dialogue with you on the efficient utilisation of resources", or some such.

YES. The Prince of Insufficient Light.

I swear they outsource management training to Elbonia.
Dogbert as Patron Saint of Technology deserves worship as he casts out All Devils of Stupidity.

Methinks i might have read that in the library. XD i do that to while the time away.

Your library (I assume this is your school library) has Dilbert books? AWESOME.

ELBONIANS HAVE BETTER MANAGEMENT sometimes, at least they know what belongs to them and what doesn't. XD "MY HOUSE. MY MUD. MY PIG."

!!!!! SAINT DOGBERT. The casting out of the Demons of Stupidity is a very very vital CALLING and must never be overlooked.

IT SHOUDLD ALSO HAPPEN MORE OFTEN.
