Anyway, we cleaned a lot this past weekend. Just random spring cleaning. I didn't realize I had so much stuff that I didn't want. It is all loaded in my car and I will drop it off at the donation center tonight.
Last night, I had about an hour before bed that I spent contacting attorney's that practice animal law. The attorneys that are in Seattle, of course I asked for tips and suggestions for not only new students who aspire to work in animal law but for new attorneys who are relocating to the area. The attorneys that are a few hours away from me, I also asked for tips and suggestions. I asked everyone about internships and part time positions.
I have been reading other blogs that are similar to mine and watching law school vlogs to get tips on study habits and things like that. Someone said to keep a spreadsheet of all the contacts that I make throughout law school. Any time someone gives me a business card, I just put the information in a spreadsheet and also a few things that were discussed. So for example, if someone I meet tells me their child's name, the next time I see them I can ask about their child by name and it will set a good foundation for a great contact. I was told at my law school during one of the events, it's not who you know, it's who knows you. I am trying to make myself known so that people will remember me when they hear of an internship or a position in my area of practice.
Also, I know I keep bringing this up but I am so nauseatingly nervous about telling my job that I am leaving. I will either let them know this Friday or next Monday at the latest. I know that there is a possibility they will be upset and possibly ugly to me about it. They may not be supportive of my decision and I dread having to work for two additional weeks in a tense environment. Every time I think about it, I get nauseated and sick! Literally sick!. I just hope they take it well. I want to leave on good terms and keep the door open with this company.
Anyway, I need to wrap this up. My stove went out and the repairman is coming, my dog is out of her medication, and other things need to be tended to. Thanks for reading! Be sure to check back for the update on the dreaded job leaving conversation. Until next time...
