I just wanted to throw up a quick update post, and say congratulations on the great new layout. Puts my lowly blogging skills to shame.
In any case, articling is going well so far. I must say that I am enjoying it far more than I had been led to believe I would. To steal from Gorbachev, the rumours of my misfortune were somewhat inaccurate. A few late nights to be sure, but nothing overwhelming. And the work is far more interesting than I had been led to believe in general as well.
I have had the opportunity to attend a bar call ceremony as well here in Alberta. For those who don't know, Alberta still has personalized bar calls that are carried out before a judge for each lawyer who is being called. The ceremony is very cool as your principle stands up and describes why you should be admitted to the bar. Then the judge lets you in and gives you some advice. You get to invite your family and friends and it goes by fairly fast. I don't know what other provinces do this, but I think they all should.
On a more personal note, the wife and I are expecting our first child in October, so all kinds of changes are on the way. We will also be moving into a new house we are building in November. Remember to keep your eyes on the prize out there. Hope everyone is having a great summer.
