My first year on the job went by so fast, but with MANY bumps along the way. Needless to say, I overwhelmed myself with work, got burned out, rejuvenated myself, and now there's not much work to be had in my area. I guess that's how it goes.
I definitely LIKE court reporting. I'm so looking forward to the day that I LOVE it. As a student I never realized how much work it would require. At school I'd transcribe a couple of times a week. It'd be a ten page transcript at that. I was not prepared for the 400 pages I'd have to transcribe in 20 days. First the expectation, then the realization, then the shock hit me. Whoo. Now I'm a little more prepared for those three, four day trials that appeal. Isn't it lovely.
I finally decided to hire a scopist, and I guess I'm like the only CR who didn't use one. I'm looking forward to being able to carry a heavier work load with the extra help I've got. I'M STILL LOOKING FOR A PROOFER!!! If you are a proofer and are looking for work, please leave me a message or send me an email.
Other than that, I know I have a TON to learn and would love to make nice with some court reporters in my area. I need a court reporter meetup in Sac or something. That would be great.
Peace and blessings to all you guys!
