Let's get motivated! To learn, that is!

Motivation Monday

Hi everyone!  I'm BAAACK!  Sorry for my week-long hiatus from blogging...I needed some much-needed time away, and now I'm back and ready to go.  And what better a way to get back to writing than with a little motivation fun?  And you can join in, too!  How do you do that, you ask?  Just whip up a little motivational post and leave the link in a comment to this post.  And I'll link that puppy up.  It's just that easy (cue infomercial music).  Yep, it's easy.  So here we (I) go...

So this week I am headed to the great state of Colorado.  Boulder, Colorado, more specifically, for a work conference.  I've hired a new attorney for our office who handles our domestic violence cases, and I'm accompanying her to a trial skills training class this week.  A class I didn't think would be all that intensive, but now looks more like a week-long law school course.  I have about 50 pages of materials to review and prepare for class to start on Tuesday.  I thought I was done with school!  I mean, that piece of paper hanging up in my office...that means I'm done, right? 

So I'm off to learn and get my trial on.  I'm a little nervous because I've never been the competitive type, and this is a hands on learning type of class.  And apparently people get really really into it.  And I'm the kind of person who would laugh at inappropriate words being used in testimony like balls or wood.  I'm the one who will likely be on Facebook the entire time and will be playing solitaire while others give their oral argument.  (I have A.D.D.  What can I say?)  But I'm going to support my new attorney.  And you know what?  I'm going to try my damndest to learn something.  Or die trying. 

So I'm off to get my learn on.  What's motivating you guys this week?
