Mandy, is everything ok? I'm glad that you seem to be in good spirits, but if you need to talk, we're here for you. Also, that's really impressive that you were able to wake up and run (in your new cool jacket) despite the drain on your energy. You're so committed! It's inspirational.
I had court again this morning. I think after 5 months, I finally feel a remote level of comfort appearing in front of a judge. I usually only do status calls, but still, I'm happy that I don't fear it anymore.
Also, I got my first pat on the back today after being employed here for 9 months. It feel so good to hear that I did a good job. I know I'm new, and they don't let me do too much, but this was the first legal argument I made. I felt like a million bucks to know that I did a good job researching and writing. It made the 9 months of boredom and mindless work worth it.
I was thinking about moonlighting for a small firm on weeknights and weekends. I'm done here every day at 5, so I have the time. I figured it'd be a good symbiotic relationship- the small firm would get the extra help when they needed it, and I'd get to learn about more areas of law and gain experience (as well as slightly supplement my income). Plus, since I'd be an "independent contractor" I wouldn't cost them anything but an hourly rate.
The company I work for is a contractor, so I doubt there'd be any ethics issues.
Do you guys have thoughts on this?
