So, the law firm that I have worked at for only 5 weeks is freaking divorcing.
The two partners are going their separate ways and the rest of us workers were given a choice. I decided to go with the partner that I liked the best because he’s much easier to work with. He’s better at communication and he’s just a nicer person in my opinion. He’s either linking up with another law firm or going solo. Now, I thought this was going to happen within a couple months which made me feel secure but unfortunately it’s happening in a week.
The whole firm has completely changed because of this. Everyone is going into each others rooms and asking who they’re going with. I am terrified. Just when I thought that I had found stability in my job, the carpet is ripped out from under me. Sure, you could say that I am a lowly file clerk but I try to work very hard and make my bosses happy. There is a chance that I may no longer have a job as well because I chose the partner who is leaving. The other partner has already written us followers off so if this blows up in our “leader’s” face, we go down in smoke too.
In that case, I’m going to take it as a sign to work solely on the blog and make it my job. As much as I would like to do this, I want to continue to work at a law firm because of all of the skills and knowledge I’m acquiring. It’s always good to have a back up plan.
So, please, forgive me if I am not on point with the blog this week. Abie and I are currently setting up appointments, events, and parties for the weekend I plan to visit. Every day is going to be jam-packed with meetings/events so I’m really looking forward to it. That weekend is going to (hopefully) launch the blog.
I’m going to try to keep up with the blog as best I can but please don’t stop loving us. This will all change next week.
