Jobs, School, and Whatnot

As most of my readers know, I am getting my associate's degree this as a certified paralegal through OakBrook College of Law. I just completed my second quarter a few weeks ago, and so my mother suggested that I make up a resume and send it out to a few different law offices in the hopes that one of them could use a blogger-on-his-way-to-paralegal. So, Thursday before last I typed up my resume with some help from Mom (she used to work in a job bank and is an expert at this kind of work) and addressed it to 6 or 7 different offices. I threw on the first polo I could find and headed into the job-hunting world. The first place I entered was the office of "R. Mitchell Berryman, Atty". As soon as I walked in and handed Mr. Berryman my resume, he told me that he had been without a secretary for three weeks and needed one right away, so could I interview right then? As you might expect, I was rather shocked. But I told him that my mom had a few errands to run with me but I would be back in a few minutes for the interview. Needless to say, I moved fast. To make a long story short, Mr. Berryman is a strong Christian and granted me the on-the-spot interview because the shirt I had randomly picked said "God Reigns". 30 minutes later, I walked out of his office with instructions to start work the next Monday afternoon! So now I am employed part-time as a secretary and legal assistant in the firm of Mitchell Berryman. I have great hours (1-4 PM, Monday-Thursday), and my employer attends the same church that my family used to attend years ago! Of course, this amazing opportunity has its downsides as well. As you all noticed, I was absent from the blogosphere last week. Since I was in my second week of my third quarter in my paralegal course and in my first week at my job, my day went from 6 AM to 10 PM without that many breaks. This has been my first real chance to relax and contact all my friends in cyberspace. This next week should be a bit better as I will have about an hour on the computer regularly in the evenings. So expect to see plenty of hurried but powerful blogposts! On another note, I will be moving this blog over to WordPress pretty soon. I am slowly customizing a decent template I found and will transfer over as soon as I can get it all set up correctly ... which may be a while due to the lack of time I have at the moment. Until next time, In Him, David S. MacMillan III
