That title is essentially a slap in my own face. I mean, I know I readily admit that I only sporadically maintain this blog, but posting once a year is really just lame. Alas, it’s been a busy year.
Shortly after I accepted the full-time teaching job at ASU-Beebe (yes, that was my last post!), Bryan got an opportunity in Colorado. Long story short, we relocated from Arkansas to Colorado in December 2021.
Upon arriving in the land of the mountains, I immediately declared myself a convert because of the weather. Seriously, there’s no humidity. It’s amazing.
I also decided I’m a hockey fan. I’ve been to two Colorado Avalance games so far and they are, without a doubt, the most fun I’ve ever had at a sporting event. Go Avs!
While teaching online for my various schools in the Spring semester, I decided to look into returning to the practice of law full-time. I’m now working for a small firm in Elizabeth, Colorado (southeast of Denver) and practicing mostly contract, construction defect and family law. My license status is pending full admission (which just means I can’t appear in court yet). Given that I graduated from law school in 2002, my ethics test (the MPRE) isn’t recent enough for Colorado. So, I’ve got to take that test again in August, then hopefully I’ll be a full-fledged Colorado lawyer (in addition to Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee).
There’s a lot more going on, of course, but that’s the big stuff. Or, at least, that’s part of my justification for not blogging frequently enough. Justification, I realized, is directed solely at myself.
I’d like to say I’ll post more frequently and on a variety of topics, but let’s be honest, I write a lot but mostly in my head.
