tender

September 28, 2007

I met up with Zoey tonight.  She interned at my office a year or so ago.  Currently an incredibly focused 3rd year law student, she never ceases to amaze me.  We had some beers at the local crappy bar in her hood.  What used to be my hood.  She had such focus.  Such passion.

I think about her and wonder what the hell I was thinking at that time in my life.  I was all heartbroken w/o a focus.  I just needed a goddamned job- and at this point – the beginning of my 3rd year?  I wasn’t even realizing that yet.

From the moment she stepped into law school, she knew.  I have the job that she wants.  Well, almost.  But close enough.

And here I am, trying to find a “better” one.  I’m starting to doubt myself.

    Maybe by getting a new job you’ll have much more impact than you would if you stayed where you are.
