Good News and Even Better News
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Man, I’ve been an incredibly neglectful blogger and I apologize but my life has been crazy lately. So let’s recap:
At the end of February I took the Bar exam, again. It was intense as to be expected and I had no idea whether I passed or not. A week later a close friend of mine informed me that she got an amazing job in Miami at a baller law firm and that she was resigning from her job in Tallahassee. So naturally I begged her to hand my resume to her boss. 20 minutes later I was called for an interview and the rest is history…I am officially employed!
The next week we celebrated our 3 year anniversary and it was nice. I’ll admit it was hard knowing that a year ago we had buried my grandfather on our anniversary but I tried not to let that ruin the occasion. A week later we took a trip home for my grandfather’s unveiling. It was tough to think that it’s been a year since I last saw my grandfather but it was amazing to be surrounded by family and to celebrate all the good memories we had of my grandfather.
When I got back to Tallahassee I started my new job. It’s been a couple of weeks and I love it so far. I’m learning so much and I’m adjusting to the whole being an attorney thing. And the icing on the cake… I passed the Bar exam!!!! Ever since I got my job I’ve been so much more stressed about passing the Bar. But now I can sit down and focus on my career because I am officially a licensed attorney. Such a relief and further proof that 2011 is truly my redemption year.
Also, within the last couple of months I found out my sister is pregnant with twins…and just this week we found out she is having boys! I am so unbelievably happy for her. I’m still sad about my own situation but in no way does my sister’s pregnancy upset me. Ironically, I find myself more torn up about complete strangers being pregnant than I do about my family members or close friends being pregnant. I’ll admit, when I read about someone being pregnant, or a tv show character is pregnant I still get weepy. But I’ve come to peace with the fact that I am now more focused on starting my career than starting a family and when the time is right again, I’ll know. I hope by then I’ll be healed and ready to start the crazy journey all over again.
As for running, I’ve been sidelined by a calf injury. About a month ago I noticed a dull pain in the inner side of my left calf and over the span of one week the pain increased significantly. Not sure if it is a muscle or bone injury but every time I try to run the sharp pain returns. Hell, wearing heels all week aggravates the injury. I’m planning on trying a test run this week. I’ve rested my legs for three weeks and I think I’m finally healed (fingers crossed). If not, I need to reevaluate my fitness regiment until I’m completely healed.
Things have been hectic and I haven’t found much time to be in the kitchen but I miss cooking/baking and more importantly I miss you. So how about it blog world, do you forgive me?
