god, i could have written this same post...you need to do it girl...imho, the social work thing would not be my first choice. that is basically like what i do now, and it sucks. not only does it take a lot of energy, it is a lot of emotional energy. being a paralegal would be great...in fact, i have often pondered it, myself...do it!

i know i need to get off my ass and make some tough decisions, but it is hard...


The paralegal thing is in much more demand in our area than social workers. My cousin graduated from EMU 4 years ago as a social worker, and hasn't had much luck with a job in the field. GOOD LUCK CHIC!!


You can pretty much guarantee yourself a job if you choose to be a paralegal...most law firms need them and rely on them, and there are usually only 1 or 2 per firm. Pretty crucial to the firm's outgoing work too.

There is a good paralegal school at LCC---at least that's what I've heard anyway...

Good for you!

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
