One Of Those Weeks
I had a different post planned for today and it was something I was really excited about writing but yesterday everything kind of hit me. It is my own fault. By being maybe overly ambitious and saying that I can do everything I am now worried that I have gotten in over my head with the amount of work that I need to get complete. Not only is it going to be one of those weeks it is not going to be any better next week.
I have commented on here before about how summer is a quietest time at my office but summer has definitely given way to fall over the last couple weeks. If you are a regular reader of this blog you likely know that I am a lawyer. Besides my job in a small law firm I also do some work on my own during my free time. I knew I was going to be busy with numerous days scheduled in court over the next couple weeks plus numerous projects scheduled at the office when another attorney I have been trying to get a meeting with for months called over the weekend and asked if I would be willing to accept a contract to write an appeal for her. I did not hesitate in saying yes.
Unfortunately a large chunk of the time to get the appeal submitted to the Court of Appeals has passed. Now I have to really hustle to fit getting brought up to date on the case, reviewing the files, doing the research, and drafting the appeal brief into my already jammed pack schedule that also includes entertaining an out of town guest next weekend.
Weeks like this make me anxious. There is so much to get done. I want to do a great job and I am thankful for opportunities likes these that may help me propel myself forward but these times also remind me that I still struggling to find job I love and a place where I want to be. Thanks for letting me vent and please be forgiving if I fall a little behind with posts and responding to emails these next couple weeks.
