1. Become a certified court reporter as soon as possible!
2. Become an excellent realtime reporter!
3. Get as many certifications as I can!4. Share the wealth by giving back to the CR community who has so kindly given much to me!
I especially want to be a mentor to CR students since that's the kind of love I've received! :)
5. Take vacations... FINALLY!
When I'm a licensed reporter, my time will be freed up tremendously since I won't be going to school full-time, studying full-time, and working part-time! I'll get to come back to my world of family, friends, fun, and a lot more cash flow! Woo hoo! I'm so looking forward to this, Goal #5.
But it all starts with first accomplishing Goal #1 on my CR Bucket List!http://stenonerd.blogspot.com/

Christine, I haven't been on here for years! I finally became a CSR and am working as an Associate Official. How's it going with you?
THAPBG U !
I am finally responding. Well, as you see, fewer reporters are working in the court system. My suggestion is if and when they afford the opportunity to work in court, drop everything and do it. Don't wait until you are old and gray. There is a lot of adapting you have to do. Years ago the municipal court needed 50 people at one time. It was my suggestion that we should create a buddy system and assign each new person to an experienced reporter. That experienced reporter had to be available 24/7. The experienced reporters were quite generous and sometimes a reporter would agree to be available for two or three new reporters. The "experienced" reporters soon found out that the "new" reporters had a lot to teach us, too. Many lasting friendships were formed.
Hi Christine Thank you 3 years later OMG I didn't realize I had a page here. Best, Mike
Thank you for the birthday wishes Christine. I am just getting reconnected to the site so I apologize for not thanking you sooner.
Just getting back to CSR Nation after not being on in a long time. Pat is still here, but Marti retired a couple years ago. She lives near me, and I check in on her every now and then. She's doing well. Glad to see you!
