Excited intern + warm sun = renewed happiness with my job

I spent a little time today talking with our file clerk, who is graduating with a Paralegal degree in June.  Her excitement to start her career and her love of law, coupled with the first semi-warm day in many months, brought me some much-needed motivation and renewed my sense of happiness that I am in a career of my choice in a job that affords me a great deal of freedom.

Here are things I enjoy about my job:
1. Days off without much/any notice to my bosses;
2. Skylight above my desk;
3. Tardiness does not mean I lose my job. I am ALWAYS late. I wouldn't last in a job where I needed to be on time;
4. Lunch whenever I want;
5. I get to pick what I work on and when I do it, so long as deadlines are met;
6. I am challenged;
7. I am never bored and the days fly by (usually); and most of all (drum roll please)
8. I get to eat lunch with my hubby everyday!

I realized halfway through writing this, my happiness is also probably due in part to Secretary X's absence today. Oh well, I'll take it!!


  1. YAY! This post makes me happy :) Glad you do have some days where you enjoy your job!

  2. I got the warm fuzzies, too - thanks for the sharing the highlights...and the skylights :D

  3. @Anonymous: So glad I could make you happy! Indeed, there are so many things about being a paralegal that are absolutely fabulous. I do like my job, otherwise, I wouldn't do it. I've noticed my blog is generally negative, and I am working on more positive topics. This is my much-needed outlet for some of the negativity of my job, so it won't all be daisies, but hopefully I will bring some humor to it!!

    @Lynne: I've never worked in another office with skylights, much less one of them above my desk. It's awesome!! I highly recommend it!

  4. It's very effortless to find out any matter on web as
    compared to textbooks, as I found this paragraph at this website.
