We are now more than half-way through the summer, and we have no time to spare. All of our lunches are scheduled, we are winding up our assignments, and we are holding on to our desks for dear life. After spending time in the legal field practicing what I learned during my first year of law school and more, I do not want to leave.
This week’s event was reason enough to stay. On Tuesday night, we went bowling with the Business Finance and Restructuring practice group at Splitsville. Initially, I was hesitant to pick a lane because it was clear that some people in the group had superior bowling skills. I decided to join Scott Baena‘s lane, as we named it, since it included the non-professional bowlers. For those following my blog posts, I must admit that my bowling skills are not much better than my poker skills. It should also not come as a surprise when I say that Jay Sakalo scored the most points, with a swing that could knock over his house of poker chips. Though our lane earned less points, we all spent the entire night laughing. Most of all, it was extremely refreshing to spend time with the members of the Bilzin Sumberg family outside of the office.
The summer is quickly coming to a close, but we still have a few events planned. I am excited to strike up even more genuine relationships and unforgettable conversations in the remaining two weeks.
