My New Job!





I have officially completed my 1st week at my new job. I love it! I am working at a law firm in Chicago and there are so many benefits compared to my previous employer. I am being placed where I was hoping and couldn't be more excited to get in there and clean my desk. The person that has been working that desk is a complete pig (she is great and all, but seriously....does your keyboard have to be so slick that my fingers slide off the keys and the phone has to smell like beef???)! I feel like a "big" girl working in the city! I can't wait to share stories about nasty people that I observe on the "L". The pictures above are of my building. My desk is on the 45th floor on the South side. I am lucky enough to have a window desk that has an amazing view of downtown Chicago. The only down side is that walking across the river is HELL...the wind is so fierce that I can barely hold on to my bag, let alone my breath! When people refer to Chicago as "The Windy City" I always get a little annoyed, but now that I have to walk that...it is so fricking true!

how fun! my roomate crosses the river too and hates it!

Do you hate the windy city remarks becuase people are whining or becuase we are not called the windy city due to actual wind?

stinky L stories are my favorite but the way

Congrats on the new job - you're all growns'd up!

The wind shouldn't be too bad for you much longer. Try to sneak some pictures of the crazies on the L, but don't get caught, that makes em crazy!
