L.A. Skyscrapers From the Top of the 6-Story L.A. Times Parking Garage This Afternoon

Today was Day One of my internship. The biggest challenge of the day was the hour-plus drive through L.A. traffic (and, oddly enough, you’ve got to do it again to get home in the afternoon, too!). The work day itself didn’t involve much work (yet); it was mostly a day for orienting we summer law clerks to our new organization.

I can already tell it is going to be a terrific summer. Serving the homeless with people who share much of my outlook on life is a recipe for a good summer. Plus, Public Counsel has lots of cool experiences lined up for us, so I’m suspecting I’ll have a few interesting things to blog about along the way, too.

Today ended with a trip inside the skyscrapers of Los Angeles to a lecture at the L.A. Times hosted by the California Supreme Court Historical Society. While there, I accidentally ended up stuck (literally, for like five minutes) in an elevator with two sitting members of the California Supreme Court along with their two Secret-Service-type bodyguards. Sometimes I think things like this only happen to me.

It isn’t going to be a relaxing summer, but that’s okay with me. I’m a better person when I’m busy.
