Restoring 1960’s muscle cars (1963-1969). I am trying something new and am currently restoring a 1979 International Scout.

Study hard. Remember what you did and who you were before law school.
How do you define a “good day"?
Arriving at work to find the perfectly brewed cup of coffee and learning my clients have either collected 100% or paid 0% as a result of my efforts. Lunch with my colleagues or clients and home in time for dinner.

I also teach 4th grade Sunday school at my church, which is often like negotiating a DIP Loan, cramming down a plan of reorganization, rendering a debt non-dischargable, and buying/selling distressed assets all at the same time.
