Long time, no post

I didn't realize it had been as long as it has since my last post. Basically nothing changed for quite some time. I was volunteering at the public defender's office and playing some poker at the local casino. My bankroll was going up and down but I never was making enough to actually live off of so I was still applying to basically every opening that I saw. Then suddenly last week I got 3 job offers in like 3 days. I was offered to join a panel that does appellate work for indigent clients in San Diego, which means that I will get assigned to do appellate briefs in some sort of rotation. So I happily accepted that position and was assigned my first case last Thursday.

Then on Friday I was offered a paying position with the public defender's office. So I will begin that fulltime job a week from Monday.

To top it off I was also offered a prop position at the local cardroom, which I would have jumped at 2 weeks ago, but now would just be impossible to do with a full plate.

When it rains, it pours.

Anyhoo, the focus of this blog (if I stay on top of things) will very likely change back to my life as a renewly minted lawyer. I am nervous and excited to get back into the courtroom. I know for a fact that I will be busy. Hopefully I will do a decent job keeping my head above the water.

Poker, for the immediate future will be taking a back seat. But with the cardroom right across the street from our courthouse, I am sure I will still be playing quite a bit.
