So I have had a lot of Drama....

You know the personal kind...that's what's kept me away for so long...but needless to say, I'm hopefully through the worst of it.

Anyways, I do have great news to report...after two years in the non-profit world...it's finally official....I'm going to be PD! whoo hoo! Moving on up!! I know that is all relative-speaking...But hey the bump in salary/benefits will be noticeable. It is bitter-sweet nonetheless as I will be leaving an awesome group of attorneys...I've learned so much from them and they've totally supported this move from the very beginning. Thanks guys!

The only other issue remains is my actual start date with the PD's....

So yes, I'm excited about working with the PD's ...and better yet, from what I've been told is that I'll be assigned to work in the Juvenile division which is great for me...because I have a pretty good relationship with all of the ones down there...especially since I'm one of the main conflict attorneys for their office.

One other thing that I will miss is the community outreach that I do currently...I actually do enjoy going out to the local schools and alternatives and giving them that "chick named Miranda" speech....if I can at least keep one kid from winding up being a future client than that makes me happy.

I hope to find a way to continue to do this while I'm at the PD's office....will post more later
