I am taking a break. I love blogging, but I’m frankly a little too crushed to do much of it right now. Between current events and my own take on where things are going in various arenas, I’m just not feeling like doing much blogging.
I am happy to discuss just about any current topic anyone likes; just post a comment, shoot me an email, IM, or text, or, you know, pick up the phone.
I’ll be back in no time, I’m sure. Just need to catch my breath for a few days.
When the Bank of England does anything for the first time – it’s 315 years old this year, after all – it’s worth noting.
Sarah and I were laughing just yesterday at how recently, as very new associates, we were waiting to get staffed on enough cases to stay busy. We both have all we can handle, now, and it’s not busy work. Some of it is less than glamorous, but it’s all real legal work that has to get done and is useful to our clients. I, for example, have reviewed more than 30,000 documents from a single source for just one case; I have 41,000 to go. It’s tedious, yet it’s great; I have a good command over what is in those documents, which knowledge will be increasingly helpful to the case team as things progress. On the other hand, I am helping research key strategic elements of a case in its infancy. Fascinating stuff. Sarah has similarly huge and interesting workloads, and is thriving. But, wow, is this week busy.
I have a handful of mini-posts I hope to make later; work permitting, I will. Now to get some sleep…
