I can’t wait to start working with people my own age again. Too much gossiping and bitching from workmates and it’s really draining.
My tolerance for people has lowered significantly over the years, and I can count on one hand the number of people I am comfortable with.
Day 1 of holidays starts with at least 5hrs worth of meetings and trying not to throw up on people.
Did someone just make up that our client died, or did the rest of us just entirely miss that part of the question?? I mean, death is a pretty big deal in Succession Law.. soo.. Awkward if we did miss it.
Meanwhile, the cohort has now taken to making #lawfuljokes
"I hope that exam was a success(ion)."
I, too, have a love-hate relationship with the World Cup. I’m not a huge follower of sport, but the athletes are extremely talented and I enjoy the camaraderie between teams and fans, and the passion for the game across the globe that comes along with a major sporting event.
My hate for these big events stem from the fact that countries spent BILLIONS of dollars for an event that runs for a couple of weeks, after which, the venues and resources produced for the event become seemingly useless. It’s extremely wasteful, and for a country like Brazil, is money that is much better spent elsewhere.
My sponsor children have been from favelas in Brazil, and a quarter of the population are living below the poverty line. The Brazillian government is spending billions of dollars on the World Cup, the income is going to FIFA (a “humble non-profit” organisation with a reserve supply of cash of a billion dollars), and more of the population is going into poverty.
Add on to that, the fact that Brazilian authorities have been clamping down on peaceful protests, throwing tear gas and abusing the human right to freedom of expression (but of course, you won’t see any of those reports before the World Cup scores), and you’ve got one controversial cup on your hands.
