How is your new job?

Its going great thanks for asking! I've been working there for almost two months now and I think that allows me a decent perspective on the job.

Day to day its pretty great. There are enough new things going on that I don't get bored, and I learn about new areas of law in depth (sometimes I do lots of researching). But then there are things I get to do every day, like mail, emails, billing stuff, etc. So there is enough routine in the job so that I don't feel like I'm doing things by the seat of my pants (which if you know me, you know thats not usually how I roll).

The BEST part about my job is my boss, yes sometimes he is frustrating, like when he asks why I can't double space a pdf for him, but 4 out of 5 days of the week he takes time to talk to me about legal theories in a case, and explain why he is doing something a particular way, or share stories from his experience. He is really an amazing mentor for this stage of my career where I just want to get experience.

The office is exactly the size I can see myself really enjoying 15 attorneys, 6 support staff (including me, who is technically also an attorney). Its big enough so you aren't constantly breathing down the same people's necks, but small enough so you know everyone in the office pretty well, even if you don't work with them. The small office really works because everyone is so darn nice! (Even when they yell at each other....somehow... I swear...) But I suppose it wouldn't be that great if people were actively mean, but they aren't so no worries.

I'll stop gushing about my job now, I just wanted you loyal readers to know a little bit about how its going... short answer is "Its going great!".
