So I have been sitting on some news for the past few weeks...
I am due to commence with my new employers early in the new year! I am extremely excited, a little nervous - I will be going into a completely different area of practice, and I cannot wait, but am also very aware that I will be "starting fresh" in many respects.
I was sad to resign from my old job, and I will especially miss my peeps in the local office. It came down to me wanting to move out of the personal injury area - with recent legislative changes, it was bordering on depressing to continue working PI. Too many calls bearing bad news, or having to downright turn clients away (thanks Barry on behalf of all my ex-Victims Comp clients whom you retrospectively screwed over.) Not to mention it felt somewhat iffy to remain practicing in an ever-shrinking area, considering the progression of my legal career.
Added to all of that, I really only want to work 2 days per week at the moment - and that is most definitely not compatible with a PI practice!
So a sad time, but also happy and exciting for what lies ahead! Bittersweet.
