I got a call today from an attorney I've worked with who wants to see my resume and talk shop this weekend. The best part is, I may be able to work for him and continue with my current office. If this works out, I think I would be completely content. I promised myself I would not become the type of attorney who loses sight of what is truly important. I have no plans of working 90 hours a week, no plans of divorcing because I don't know my husband and no plans of buying my (future) children's love because I can't devote time to their lives. Unfortunately, this greatly limits my employment options.
I'm definitely trying to think positively, and after the phone call today I feel enthusiastic about the possibility of having a multi-faceted legal career.
I also mentioned to B today that I've always wanted to get my real estate license. He responded with a silent stare and said, "I think you might enjoy punishing yourself with tests."
