Ticking Clock

The ticking clock is ticking slowly.  Do you remember sitting in high school and watching the clock ticking by, so slowly?  You could hear the second hand as it chugged along and you were convinced that time could not go any slower?  This is me right now.  The clock is ticking slowly.  I can hear the time tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock......

I am now a little under a week away from the bar results.  April 22nd at 2:00 is the time.  If all goes well, I will be sworn in on May 6th at 1:30 in the afternoon.    I still don't know what I will do, where I will work, what direction I will take.  I have an idea rolling around in my head, but as someone who operates with caution, I don't know if this idea is the answer to a dream, or the start of a headache.... But I still have seven days of tick tock, tick tock............

Gut Instinct

Interviewing.. I rock them.  I just do.  This last time, I interviewed for a firm that is my dream firm to work for.  I was going through a recruiter.  One of the benefits of a recruiter is that you hear back almost immediately how the interview went.

Here was the result:  "They loved you.  Said you were great, interviewed well, confident, dynamic, highly intelligent and would make a wonderful attorney.  But they are not asking you back for a second interview.  I tried to press them as to why and they said it was a gut instinct."

A gut instinct?  Everyone that I have asked about this has said that this is a cop out.  I don't know.  My guess is that for some reason I did not seem like a good fit.  Maybe my big personality would not mesh well with others.  So it's back to the drawing board.  I am bummed but not giving up.

MPRE Results...

Were posted today and yes, I passed... one exam result down, 1 more to go.  April 22nd is D-Day for the bar exam results.  Can I tell you that it feels like part of the weight on my shoulders has fallen off??? What a great feeling.  Now, pass bar, get a job! Yeah!
