so, in 25 minutes, i'm about to start my summer job.
i haven't been this happy about starting a job in a while. i guess working at a library, working at a restaurant, stuff like that...you know what you're going to be getting, you know what you're going to be doing. library equals barcoding (or stamping) books. restaurant equals dealing with the nimrods that walk in the door. but a legal job...who knows? who knows what cases i'll be working on? what clients i'll be talking to? how the judge is going to rule in court? there will be new things, interesting things...and in such a tiny clinic as the civil justice clinic is in the summer, i'll be right in the middle of all of it.
in other news...my exploratory trip to church yesterday was actually really cool. the minister is a really good speaker...and the sermon for mother's day was about a woman named Fannie Kimball, an actress and abolitionist who decided, when she found out that her rich husband was only rich due to slavery, to leave her husband and make it on her own. it was a fascinating story. i also liked the church a lot...it's not a preachy place at all, from what i can tell of it (then again, if it were a preachy place it would be inconsistent with most everything i've read about unitarianism...), and i met a lot of really nice, friendly people who were willing to tell me all sorts of things about the church, the community there, their experiences, the activities. i think i am going to keep going, and see what comes of it.
