on entering my third decade

I feel that it is mandatory to write some musing given the fact that I am reaching a milestone in my culture: the thirtieth birthday. You are still considered young, but now there are no more excuses for lack of achievement or accomplishment.

These last 6 months of practicing law has been a real whirlwind tour, with my mentors telling me I really should not be experiencing these level of cases this soon and not to get used to multibillion/multimillion dollar cases. The learning curve is steep, and very overwhelming at times. But we are having great fun, even if it means working nights and weekends for several months.

These last 7.5 months as a father is the same way: crazy, busy, exciting, fun, tiring, but I think I am getting the hang of it.

The never seems to be time to devote to keeping up with what is happening in the world or my state, and rarely do I get a chance these days to keep up with pop culture. Still, it makes me enjoy those moments of free time all the more.

I have missed my blog world, those whom I used to read religiously and those who I would enjoy comment battles with. After this storm passes, perhaps I will be able to engage in blogging on a more routine basis. Although the days of daily postings appears to be a distant memory.

Whatever wisdom I have gained over the years I owe my peers, mentors, family, friends, and even enemies. Whatever faults and bad habits are entirely of my own making, and part of what I have learned over the last few years is that some of them can be fixed, others must be worked around, and some I have to be extra vigilant to correct on the fly. Thank you to all that continue to check and read this woefully out of date blog. Have a joyous Easter, lovely Passover, or just have a nice weekend.

Conventional "wisdom" would say as aging purveying of law, you should be trending conservative, and finding an inexplicable appeal in the Party of No Ideas.

As long as that's not happening to you, I'd saw you're doing something right.

Umm....actually, if you just turned 30, you are entering your fourth decade. Think about it.

This is exactly what I was talking about, math is not my strong suit.
