For foodies like myself, the cuisine du jour/hipster thing to do is to go to a random pop-up market of high end food trucks. In Florida, there is a weekly food truck market called “Roaming Hunger.” There you can sample a wide range of cuisines from around the world. From Peking Duck Tacos to Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Macaroni & Cheese and Bacon filling, this high end “street food” is the “in” thing to do in Miami and the surrounding areas. Usually these markets take place on County or City property and the food trucks are granted a permit for temporary use.

It is no secret there are too many lawyers in California and not enough jobs. When I graduated law school in 2008, the Great Recession was at its height. After obtaining my law license in 2009, I found myself facing a pile of student loan debt and no job prospects. It took me almost two years of hustling for contract attorney work before I found full time, permanent employment as an associate attorney at a private firm. During those years I was “hustling.” I remember hearing more and more complaints from graduates of my alma mater about how employment data was fabricated and the true number of graduates who were actually employed v. the number of graduates who were not employed was misrepresented in marketing materials.
