  平凡美国人-生活中的一天:来自布鲁克林的Eugene


生活中的一天:来自布鲁克林的  Eugene

 

Eugene S.40

律师

纽约布鲁克林区

 

我是一名律师,今年40岁,已婚,有两个孩子。我妻子是一名在纽约市政府工作的律师,过去的三年我自己开了一家律师事务所。我们住在纽约布鲁克林区滨海区域海湾大桥的一处漂亮的房子里,,离韦拉札诺海峡大桥很近。这里可以说是布鲁克林区最多元化的社区之一,原来是斯堪的纳维亚移民的最早聚居区。后来陆续有爱尔兰、德国和意大利移民搬到这里,在过去40年里,这里见证了阿拉伯人、俄罗斯人、亚洲人、印度人——每个人—的大融合体现在每个人的身上!我们的房子紧邻布鲁克林区中国城附近的日落公园。

 

早上6:00三岁大的儿子醒了。他还在婴儿床上,自己下不来。但是他一边哼唱一边喊我们。我捂住耳朵,我妻子很生气,,她经常5点就起来了。儿子起来了,女儿要7才起床。

 

早上7:30我起床时了,妻子已经喂饱孩子们,并且给他们穿好衣服了真是了不起。

8从家出发坐快速公交去上班。

 

上午8:00我送孩子们去学校。我们非常幸运,走不远就有一所公立学校,附近还有日托所。

 

上午10:00我要到纽约曼哈顿的客户办公室跟客户和另一名律师碰面,所以我要开一个小时的车到约定地点。我们正在联邦法庭为针对违反最低薪酬和加班法的民事指控提供辩护。

 

下午1:00我回到家里办公,工作内容就是为各种事项打电话、发邮件及审核各类文件。我一定会留出时间看新闻,主要通过社交媒体推送获悉。我看的大多是政治和科技方面的文章,会看许多关于当前国际大事方面和其他我感兴趣的文章。 

 

下午2:30我一周有两天负责接大女儿放学,然后我们一起做家庭作业和其他活动。

 

下午6:00我们会尽可能一起做饭,一起吃饭。我们经常会在家里讨论法律问题。我负责为大女儿做第二天的午餐。

 

下午7:00我们一家人一起做一些开心又放松的事情,然后让孩子们洗澡和准备睡觉,睡前还要讲很多睡前故事。

 

晚上8:30孩子们都上床睡觉了,我和妻子会再看一小时电视。

 

晚上10:00喝茶、看书、看电视。

 

A Day in the Life: Eugene from Brooklyn

 

Eugene S., 40

Lawyer

Brooklyn, New York

 

I'm a 40 year-old attorney and am married with two kids.  My wife works as a lawyer for the city of New York and I've been in my own solo private practice for the last three years. We live in a nice house in Bay Ridge, a seaside part of Brooklyn, New York, near the Verrazano Bridge. It's one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Brooklyn withoriginal roots from Scandinavian immigrants. Irish, German, and Italian immigrants moved in next and over the last 40 years, there has been a great mix of Arab, Russian, Asian, and Indian folks - everybody!  We border Sunset Park, the neighborhood of Brooklyn's Chinatown.

 

6:00am: Our three year-old woke up. He's still in a crib and he can't get out. He sings and calls us. I cover my ears. My wife is mad, but I don't know why since she's usually up at 5:00am to work out, but he's up and our daughter is up by 7:00am.

 

7:30am: I'm up, and my wife has fed and dressed the kids -she's great.

She's off to work before 8:00am. She takes an express bus.

 

8:00am: I take the kids to school. We are very fortunate to have a public school within a short walk, and daycare nearby.

 

10:00am: I have a meeting with a client and another lawyer at the client's office in Manhattan, New York, so I haveto drive for an hour.  We are defending against civil allegations of minimum wage and overtime law violations in federal court.

 

1:00pm: I'm back in my home-office, and it's phone calls and emails and document reviewing for various matters. There’s definitely some time reading the news that I get mainly through my social media feed. The articles are mostly political and scientific, and I read a lot of articles about current international events and other things of interest.

 

2:30pm: Twice a week I pick up our oldest daughter after school and we do homework and other activities.

 

6:00pm-ish: We prepare and eat a family meal, as best we can. We often discuss law. I make lunch for my oldest child for the next day.

 

7:00pm: We do something fun and relaxing together, and get ready for baths and bed for the kids. There's a lot of reading at bedtime.

 

8:30pm: The kids are in bed and I watch one hour of TV together with my wife.

 

10:00pm: Tea and books and TV.
