We are about halfway through the Summer Weather here in lovely and exotic Olive Branch, Mississippi. The Summers are brutally hot. June is Hell's porch. July is Satan's crotch. August makes you long for June. May starts out okay but gets hot mid-month. September is the mirror opposite.
My job hunt is showing no signs of improvement. I did have an interview with a law firm that seemed positive and I was advancing to the next round. Unfortunately, they would want me in Chicago immediately, no remote until we can move there on our schedule.
And that is part of the problem. Even when remote work was more prevalent, law firms -- where the bulk of my potential employers are -- require you to live in a state where they have an office for tax compliance reasons.
And now the Return To Office (TRO) is being pushed so it makes it even more unlikely I will find anything again.
July was also a bad month for steps. Between the heat down here, and spending most of our time at the beach (where my phone would be in my backpack) I did not hit my target 99% of the time.
