    well, here it is, the first day.

    thus far, i've had little to no contact with attorneys - only those responsible for training me on the computer, phones, fax machines, scanners, library, security, etc.

    there are quite a few perks here, which is nice. free coffee, tea, water, soda, juice and (oddly) some strangely chosen foodstuffs. i am also excited that i have my own temperature control. that's so rare in an office-setting. i can keep my office icey on days that i wear too many layers and steamy on those that surprise me with cold and damp.

    i have zero sense of the work or the people, though. which i expect from 1st days.

    i ran into a classmate on the train. during my first year, i thought this particular classmate was surely a "gunner" and had an unfavorable opinion of him. he seemed so uptight. and coming from me, that's pretty uptight.

    last year i barely ever saw him.

    this year we had a class together and started chatting here and there. he was much less of a gunner (which i do think he was in the 1st year, my opinion of his first year persona has not changed), if he held on to even an iota of it. now, i find him not so bad. it was a very welcome distraction to have the newly-non-gunner to chat with on the train. we were both heading off to our first days of work, making that transition from school to work -- not quite there, yet. we talked about this past quarter, and the classes we're interested in for the spring, and a little about work. i think that as one school-quarter is ending, we end up thinking a lot about what classes we'll take next school-quarter, b/c we're in school. it's the language we're speaking. no one gets into the swing of co-op until at least the third week, and that's when you sort of forget that you're a student and that you used to get up and throw on jeans and a t-shirt and zero jewelry and that you have to pick classes off the list soon.

    today, though, classes are still on the brain. and i kind of still wish i was sitting in one.
