I guess news in the form of Facebook status doesn't travel as fast as I thought it did. C'mon, aren't we the technology-obsessed generation? Oh well. Unfortunately, it seems that some of you didn't hear: I GOT MY SUPER FANTASTIC DREAM JOB! At least for the summer. :)
That's right, kids, I have accepted a Legal Clerkship at the Animal Legal Defense Fund in Portland, Oregon and I am SOOOO excited.
In this economy, with my grades, etc. etc. etc., I don't know how I got this position. Well, wait, I don't want to sell myself too short. I AM pretty much dedicated to the field of Animal Law, and I think my enthusiasm came through during the interview. YAY! I feel so, so lucky.
Perks include people bringing their dogs to work, 9-5 schedule (rare in the legal world), staying with an oh-so-generous family friend in her gorgeous house, getting established in the Animal Law field, and a boss who has a sailboat in Washington. :)
Downsides: Leaving RightHand for yet another summer! Though, last summer was my trip around the world, so we are both counting our blessings this time and hoping he can visit. :)
Looking forward to sharing my experiences and photos with you all over the summer.
