Just wanted to share some news with everyone - I know, I know... I haven't been blogging as much as I had been lately. But, in my defense, I've been working on lots of other projects:
Brooklyn GOP Radio has taken up a lot of my weekends. Thankfully, I've gotten some help from new co-host Russell Gallo, and the show has been steadily growing in audience and exposure. We even set up a new Official Show Blog, so check that out!
I recently attended the NYS Young Republicans' "World Series of Poker" at Canlon's Restaurant in Oakwood Heights. It was a great event, lots of fun, even though I was taken on the river to get knocked out of the tournament. I wuz robbed. But the news wasn't all bad - and my father (hardly a "young" Republican) took the title and grabbed a seat at the Final Table!
Work has also picked up a great deal. I've had a lot of motions to write lately, which is probably my favorite part of the practice. I've learned a lot, and I definitely feel like my skills are not only improving from week to week, but I'm retaining those skills even if I don't use them for weeks at a time.
Finally, I had an encouraging meeting with the new Executive Director of New Yorkers for Parks, and we're all on the same page as far as moving the project forward. Keyword: small victories. More on this in the future!
So as you can see, many irons are in the fire, as always. And many outlets for expression and growth. I'll keep everyone posted as much as I can.
Oh, and a final note - best of luck to my friend Jessenia Maldonado as she takes the NY Bar Exam this week! I've known Jess since 4th grade when my family moved back to Brooklyn and a year and a half out in Suffolk County. Growing up, we weren't in many of the same classes, and we weren't the closest of friends, but we've recently gotten back in touch, thanks to MySpace and Facebook, and have re-connected based on our shared experience in law school.
Go get 'em, Jess!
