plus que ça change, plus c'est la même chose* (v.2)

OK: edit this section!

I can devote some more time to homeschooling!

Oh my goodness! You certainly do know how to inject a little...uncertainty into your life! But it's great that you feel resigning was the right thing to do.

I always find writing is an oasis of sanity when everything else is going odd. When you write, you can control a world (maybe not this one, but a world nonetheless), or you can be endlessly surprised by the inventiveness of your characters (which is a great feeling).

It was an unfortunate situation that I simply could not get out of. My immediate supervisor made my life hell after attempting to assign me with "Very Difficult Attorney" who recently made partner - and eventually subtle threats were made. I filed a complaint, and the threats worsened. One could say, maybe it was retaliatory. I will never know. But my complaint was never addressed, and I simply could not work under that work environment.


Yes, writing is so very grounding...

That was me. I hate when I do that.

Caught the post prior to the edit. From one unsettled blogger to another, it makes for great material, doesn't it?

Glad you'll be spending more time on NaNoWriMo.

Last summer I worked for the university legal clinic doing work that I loved...but the boss was a total jerk... she absolutely persecuted many of the younger inexperienced staff (especially my partner at work, who happened to be gay)... 12 of the 19 staff took a complaint to the Dean of the Law school... and most of us resigned at that point... I have sworn that I will never work for a jerk again (I am 41 now) and I am sticking to it even in my articles this year - I hand picked my two principals, and although I am getting paid very little money, I love what I am doing, and I can stay home with my son when needed... its very flexible... good luck!

Thanks so much for your comments & support ... keep it coming. I was inspired enough to call up the Village Voice for an article proposal today.

Who knows where this may lead...
