Lately I have not been feeling my usual cheerful, upbeat self.  Indeed, I have been what my friends call a “bitterface”  “Bitterface” can be used in a variety of contexts:  for example, when we were taking the bar, we were “bitterbarface.”  If a friend wasn’t having much luck with a crush, she’d have “bitterboyface.”  Too much beer the night before–“bitterbeerface.” You get the picture.

So I have been a bitterface.  I’m going to call this one “bitterbenchface.”  I think I am at that point in my clerkship where I am starting to feel antsy–like I want to be back on the other side of the bench.  Oh–and did I mention I’m also becoming “bitterbrokeface”?

At the same time, I’m worried about going back to all the hours, pressure, etc.  And here’s a biggy—I’m also worried about where I am going next. 

It eats me up.  I already told you I got a rejection letter from a job I didn’t even apply for–which, while funny–gave me “bitterbuttofthejokeface.”

Well.  Lo and behold–my bitterface is lifted for the first time in months.  Goodness gracious!  I just found out I got a job interview.  What a way to end on a Friday!  My eyes got wet for a minute.

Now all I have to deal with this weekend is bitterbroadstreetraceface.
