I can has job!!!

So, the last two posts have been slightly... depressing.

But, I have some good news! I've had a few interviews to do paralegal/law related stuff and I have two follow-up interviews this Friday. Also, I interviewed at Kaplan to do test prep in the evenings and have a follow up interview coming up next week. Life is looking up.

Also, as much as my mother is driving me insane, my dad is being super supportive. When I totld him about one of my follow up interviews today he said "I can't wait until you have a job in the city. It's in the middle of everything and you're young and it's going to be good. And once you're working, you can move into the city and I can come visit you." I'm glad he gets it. It makes my mother being delusional a lot better.

Fingers crossed!!


  1. I'm currently working/living in the city, and it's awesome (though, unlike you I'm preparing to get back into academia).

    The biggest change for me was that I suddenly had to spend a lot of money on basic needs, and had fewer dollars for leisure, etc. Which, not being in school, I find I have some good amount of time for. This seems to be true for people anywhere, but especially in an expensive city like NY.

    Still, after about 6 months, I find myself dreading the thought of moving somewhere else if I wind up going to grad school somewhere else.

    Good Luck!

  2. Well, I was living on my own for about 5 months in the middle of the cornfields in Illinois. And while it was a lot cheaper, I was also only making about a third of what I will be if I get one of these jobs. But yeah, having to spend money on necessities does suck.
