Sung as a bug in a rug – and then my alarm goes off. Time to start the day.

8:45 AM

Arrive at work and check my emails. I like to write a to-do list for the day before 9:00 am so that I can start my day with a clear head.

9:00 AM

Photo day! I got my Corporate Photo taken today (took about 15 minutes to get the perfect shot).

9:30 AM

Two colleagues and I got together and discussed how advocacy has changed in the legal profession, especially due to technology and COVID-19. We want to try and find a way that young lawyers can still gain experience and the knowledge we need to go to Court confidently.

To-do list time – most of my day consists of reviewing a Plaintiff’s medical documents to create a chronology of their medical history. These can be really interesting, and they help a lot with lowering the damages a Plaintiff will get in the matter.

1:00 PM

Food time (finally)! My favourite time of day. This morning I decided to “forget” my lunch and ordered a nice chicken bowl instead. Today I ate on our balcony with some of the other Graduates, a good meal, and a decent tan!

2:00 PM

Back to work! I received some ad-hoc tasks to do during the day, so onto my to-do list, they go. I get a wide range of tasks, some tasks involve drafting letters to other parties in our matter, sometimes I will draft a subpoena or even research tasks. Today most of my tasks were completing medical chronologies for different matters and creating a timeline of important dates for a new matter that has just commenced.

3:00 PM

I needed a pick-me-up – time for a quick coffee with a colleague. There are so many great options in the city (forever grateful).

5:30 PM

After checking the last task off my to-do list – it’s time to go home!

6:00 PM

Luckily for me, today is a rest day at the gym. However, I have just started College of Law, and so it’s time to get up to date on my assignments.

10:00 PM

After procrastinating my College of Law work, and watching YouTube for way too long, it’s time for bed.
