So...

I have this absolute aversion to anything and everything "business". I dislike business-speak, business-jargon, business-decorum, business-dress, the business-mentality, the business-atmosphere, and the business of business.  >:(

Also, I've found that - in this environment - I've become quite the little saboteur. I don't like it when things are running smoothly, when things are "efficient"; rather I seem to prefer things going wrong, disorder (which is strange, because I'm overly neat and compulsive), and disorganization.

I don't think this bodes well for me. Maybe I should run for president instead.

So what about you will keep you from being successful (however you define it) as an attorney?


I worry about this sometimes, as well.

Rain-making. In-house counsel or government work sounds especially appealing because you a) don't have to find clients and b) you don't have to track your time in 6-minute increments.

I set my clocks early because you know I'm always late.

This worries me too.

Edit: About myself, not Villefort. :)
