Last Time I Checked It Was Twenty-Eleven

I am used to people having comments about my not cooking. It's not that I don't know how to cook, but that I don't like to cook. I may not be able to make a lot of different things, but I'm sure if I wanted to, I could learn. I also don't like cooking when it's just me. I also don't eat a lot of meat, so if I do cook, it's usually pasta, rice, tacos, etc.

Recently, I had a conversation with someone who said it was a damn shame that I didn't cook. When I said, "just because I have vagina doesn't mean I should cook," he said, "yes it does." Really? Yesterday, I read this on Twitter: "Your a grown woman and you can't cook then wonder why he cheats."

Maybe we don't want to be with you because you've got four baby mammas, you live at home with your mamma, you don't have a job, you can't afford to take us to dinner, you refuse to help out around the house, why don't YOU cook us dinner after we've worked all day and taken care of your kids, you want us to cook but I bet you're not going to help clean up...

I'm here to tell you grow up and get overself.

Public Service Announcement

I would like to address a misconception that people seem to have about my being a paralegal. Although, the job may sound glamorous and sophisticated, it is just that; a job. I could see maybe if I worked for Gloria Allred or worked on the O.J. case, but I work in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I decided to become a paralegal when I was in high school and a rep from my college came to talk to us. I saw a list of degrees provided at their school and decided that I wanted to be a paralegal.

Although I have worked in pretty much every area of law and have been doing this for quite sometime, I am not rich and I don't plan to ever become rich off such occupation.  Just because I dress up everyday and work downtown in a big fancy building, does not mean I am rich.  Also, when you're unemployed for a period of two years (non-consecutively) you don't have extra money laying around.

So, I say this to all those people who think I have money in the bank...I don't. I pay my bills, but that doesn't leave me any extra for extra-curricular activities nor does it leave me any extra to lets say loan money to anyone.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program...
