Tomorrow, I head to Daytona Beach for a conference. I will apparently learn all about being a labor and employment plaintiff's lawyer. I am looking forward to it because I am interested in learning as much as I can and it will be nice to meet other lawyers who do the same thing.
Then, on Sunday, we are flying (out of Orlando since we'll be on that side of the state and it's cheaper) to Washington, DC for Barack Obama's Inauguration. The Inaugural Committe gave 2 tickets to each campaign staffer (which is pretty awesome if you think about it).
The tickets, including the Staff Ball tickets which I can't actually go to. I decided against purchasing any other official ball tickets (go ahead, yell at me – everyone else has).
They're actually pretty cool tickets. Sparkly and everything. I hope that we get to keep them. We are in the purple section which means we are in the back corner, but I don't really care. I just want to be there.
There is a Florida staff party Sunday night and a bunch of my law school friends will be in town on top of all my campaign friends so I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. It's hard to believe the election was over 2 months ago and we're already at the inauguration. Doesn't it feel like we've been waiting for Jaunary 20, 2008 for a loooong time and then the last few months just flew by?
I will share my inauguration adventures when I return next week. 🙂
