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...
