After several days of moping around the house in my jammies, watching reruns of Charmed and eating way too many Christmas leftovers, I decided I need a schedule.
Day One's schedule went something like this:
7:00 AM Go to the Y
9:00 AM Retrieve a motion from the clerk's office to use as a writing sample
10:00PM Search job sites, edit resumes, get transcripts
1:30 PM Creative writing, jewelry making
3:00 PM Call potential contacts for referral cases
5:00 PM Violin lesson
Day One's activites went more like this:
7:00 AM Curse at alarm clock, hit snooze
8:00 AM Go to Y. Wonder how it is that people get addicted to this exercise thing. Curse the elliptical machine and all it's evilness.
10:30AM Attempt to park to go to clerk's office. Curse the new mayor for blocking off all the streets for his coronation.
11:00AM At clerk's office, try to remember how to get something from a file when you don't have a pass to get to the back. Curse.
12:00PM Start searching job sites. Don't edit resume as there is nowhere to send it, anyway. Curse the economy.
1:00 PM Meditate.
1:03 PM Curse.
1:04 PM Decide am too chicken-shit to call other lawyers for referral cases.
1:05 PM Watch Dr. Who
2:00 PM Fantasize about writing for a TV show about a supernaturally gifted unemployed lawyer who travels through time.
You get the idea. Okay, so maybe I need to revise my scheduling a bit. Although I'm not giving up on that TV show.
