I've Stopped Drinking The Kool-Aid

I just accepted my offer for employment with Bachelor #5! Although I had basically made up my mind last Friday, after meeting with Bachelor #1, I went out last night for drinks with all of the associates at Bachelor #5 for a last test of the waters. The whole group was awesome. I had so much fun, and the evening confirmed that I was making the right decision. I seriously can not believe that such a normal, cool group of people are lawyers!

Before I get too excited (which I already am), I have to take care of a number of administrative things. My offer is contingent upon a reference and conflicts check (conflicts occur if I worked on a case that my new firm is also working on, basically). Once all of the administrative stuff is taken care of, I'll finally be in a position to give notice!!!! I can hardly stand the anticipation. If all goes well, it shouldn't be much longer before that happy day is upon me.

Congratulations! I too have been following your search for a new job to call home, and I'm glad you found what you were looking for! I have also been searching for employment that works for me, not just me working for them. The people you work with tend to become your family, it's good you got to test the waters out first! Wishing you much success!

That sounds like excellent news, congratulations! Even though I'm pretty new to your blog, after reading the DL story I can see you are in need of a change... Fingers are crossed at this end that admin is dealt with swiftly.
