A Day in the Life: Third-Year Associate, New York

7:15 a.m. My alarm buzzes, and I hit snooze (a couple of times).

7:25 a.m. I have an internal debate (the same one I have a couple of times a week) - what I really want to do is roll over and go back to sleep for another hour, but what I really should do is go to the gym instead. Hmmm... tough choice. I tell myself that if I go to the gym today, I won't have to go tomorrow! That's something to look forward to. Plus, something has to be done to counter the effects of all the bratwurst I ate during last week's vacation in Germany. Gym wins out, and I drag myself out of bed.
 
A Day in the Life of a Bankruptcy Attorney

7:40 a.m. I arrive at the gym. Although it is a five-minute walk from the firm's offices, I rarely see anyone from the firm in the morning. The gym I go to is located on Wall Street, so it is full of lawyers, bankers and traders. Today's workout is a half hour of cardio, followed by some weights. This is when I can get my dose of MTV and VH1. I can't wait until it gets warmer so I can go rollerblading on the promenade instead of being stuck inside.

8:35 a.m. I leave the gym and on my way home pass hordes of people streaming to their jobs on Wall St. I'm glad I have a job that doesn't require me to be in the office at my desk by 8:30 or 9:00 a.m.
