Okay, okay…maybe not. I mean, I’m not a lawyer…yet.
But at least I’m making money again. And I’m busy again. And I’m feeling productive again.
There’s waitressing (yeah, don’t judge, you know it’s a noble profession *coughs*), tutoring (it’s rewarding, okay…), document reviewing, and researching/writing. So what if I have four bosses and I’m scheduled back-to-back-to-back?
I’m totally lovin’ it.
Like I told PMaster, I feel like my life has purpose again.
I love waking up in the morning feeling like I immediately have to get out of bed and work. I love that sense of direction and knowing what to do next. Yes, I’m going to miss waking up at 9 or 10, and even 11 on a few days, but nothing beats waking up and knowing that you’re getting something done today.
Plus, I get free food from one job, interaction with kids at another, legal networking at another, and legal research at the other. Heck, I even get to wear a tie (and an apron). Once my schedule becomes much more settled and clearer, I’m also jonesing to start doing volunteer legal work at the SFBar Association. More networking, more of my foot (and hopefully a leg and an arm) in the door, and hopefully a job when (yes, when–i’m being optimistic here) I pass the bar.
Handsome H says he admires my moxie.
In reality, it was more of a near-fatal combination of boredom and the desperate need to do something more than stay at home all day.
Either way, I’m baaack in bidniz. Sort of.
