Counting the Days

Well, I've made a decision. In roughly three, maybe four, weeks I will be giving notice of my resignation at the law firm I have been an associate at for the last couple of months. If this was a job that I sort of liked, I wouldn't mind that I'm struggling learning how to do it or that my boss tends to be incomprehensible and somewhat of a condescending a-hole. The fact of the matter, though, is that I'm not well suited for the advesarial nature of civil litigation and all the petty games that seem to go hand and foot with it. Of course, if the firm I am currently at only did litigation in matters related to religious liberty or defense of the unborn, things would probably be different. But, that's not what it does (not even close) and frankly I'm tired of physically being sick every morning because I don't want to go to the office. Fortunately, I'm not in a position where I absolutely need a paying job, and can actually afford to look for other opportunities. Such is the benefit of having a supportive family.
