Reading court resolutions of rape cases might not be the best way to start the morning. After reading one on incestual rape, I was pretty much determined to just curl up in ball and hide under my desk the whole day, muttering “the world is cruel.”
Perhaps, this is why I don’t want to ever take up law. There’s also my lame excuse of “there are so many lawyers, but not much justice.” But good luck to the future lawyers, and I trust that you will uphold justice no matter what.
Someday, you’ll realize the value of PR. You cannot expect them to know everything beforehand, that is why they want to interview you. You do not ask them to read a PR article written ages back, instruct them to publish the same kind, and then rant excessively on how it has become redundant. You have to be willing to let them know exactly what you want the public to know; they are here to help you.
I seriously want to give the girl a hug. I mean, she’s new in the company (the bureaucracy is so bad, I had to make a synonym just as bad), but that does not make less of her competencies. Just like you’re in the job because of your endless credentials (I’m pretty sure you’ve earned them well), allow her to make this her step towards greatness.
The problem with being in the academe is, because knowledge has essentially been commoditized, you’d think that having more (in this case, knowing more), warrants you the right to step on someone else’s job. You become stuck in your iron tower.
Ironic, isn’t it?
