The Year gone by!

If there was a way to measure time, I am sure that, we would really realise that how easily time flies!

Today, I complete ONE whole year at being a professional! I joined my senior last year at the re-opening *First day of the court after the summer vacations*, that day it was another experience, something that awed me, that made me squirmy and at the same time gave me a sense of the quantum leap that I had taken.

And today, when I realised, that one year has gone by, I couldn't believe that time has actually flown, and that, I am already one year old, and I have colleagues who are my junior joining the office! :)
The last entire year in the profession has been a great learning experience *As a matter of fact, in my profession, every little thing a learning experience* but there are still miles to go before there is a milestone for me!

Yes, a lot has changed over the last year.
The small little practice that I had joined, is now a part of a law firm, where, I get time for other things than work.
I have learnt a very important lesson, that, there are no friends in office. Only acquaintances who you can talk to.
I have been given an opportunity learn new things, and 9pm is not so late any more.. there is the new car that I have, and a salary that is decent for now.

But one thing that has not changed,is my dislike towards litigation. It just doesn't attract, and now, after I experienced a project in corporate, where I have realised that, even though seniority matters, it does not discount your opinion, or that your work is looked down upon! Unlike, where in litigation, a young lawyer is always just that- Young and brash!

But here is wishing myself, all the good luck for the life and career ahead! :)

You're completely right about that no friends in the workplace rule. It's always better to keep your personal and professional lives separate. Otherwise, things tend to get messy. I learned that the hard way this year.

I remember reading about the court.. about how u did not fit in and then how you started to enjoy being there.. and I didn't realise that it has been a year already.. Also, that I have known you for much longer... So here I am wishing you many more wonderful years at the court. Hugs..
