I am a Volunteer Attorney

Today I had a meeting with my mentor attorney to discuss a pro bono case I took on a couple of months ago. I used to do a lot of pro bono work, but it's been a few years. It's good to be back to it. It's good to help people out and I get to learn how to do cases that I would not normally encounter in my day to day legal career. So it's a win-win situation.

What I Wore To Legal Aid of North Texas:

2009-11-04 combo

  • skirt (Merona, swap!!)
  • orange T with floral cutouts (Jeremy Spencer via Marshalls)
  • plaid tweed jacket (Target)
  • brown flats (Old Navy)
  • orange earrings (?? via Ross?)
  • stretch belt (Dots)
  • new hair color (Herbal Essences Spiced Tea) *
* My hair is so dark that I don't ever get red hair, I just get a nice auburn sheen to it.

What I Ate Before Buying 5 lbs of Carrots:

2009-11-04 food

  • breakfast: cheesy egg, 3 cuties, alternative bagel
  • lunch: chicken and avocado sandwich, honeycrisp apple, yoplait *
  • snack: Gen Soy bar, lite cheese stick, small banana
  • dinner: 4 oz grilled chicken, corn on the cob, side salad
  • dessert: WW ice cream bar
* No lunch-time veggies today b/c I forgot to go to the store on my way to work. Otherwise I would have had carrots. I picked up a 5 lb bag on the way home, so I am set for the rest of the week.

Exercise:

40 incline pushups, various leg lifts

Total for the Day: 29 points, 30 pushups, 5 glasses of water

Love the belt and your hair - so pretty. That's so great you're doing pro bono work!

Aradia - thanks!

Sheila - I wondered if you colored your hair. I wish mine could be as vibrant a red as yours is, but I have to bleach it first if I want to do that. And that trashes my hair.

LOL I will be eating those carrots for weeks.

Cindee - yeah, Legal Aid is a good thing. Sometimes I wish I could help more people.

Erin - thanks!

Heather - thanks! It's nice to have time to do pro bono. Not everyone has the time.
