Ah, the sweet, sweet smell of success....

I still can't quite believe it, but I actually got a job. Let me say that again....I GOT A JOB!!!!! I GOT A JOB!!! I GOT A JOB!!!!

It only took 1 year, 1 month and 20 days, but I am finally, once more, among that most coveted of groups -- the gainfully employed. Granted, its an hourly temp job, which could end in as little as 4 weeks, but it beats the shit out of unemployment. I even get benefits (can you say 'best temp agency ever'?) And considering I was about to go work at Hooters, for no other reason that to get the hell out of the house (and give my DH something to be proud of, of course), what I'm doing now is an infinite improvement. I actually get to play lawyer. Like for realz. In some ways even more than I did in most of my other "lawyer" jobs. And unlike those other jobs, I do NOT work weekends, I do NOT work overtime, and I do NOT have to get dressed up...or even out of my pajamas if I don't like. That's right, I work form home bitches! A straight 40 hours a week.

I've never been so happy to be underpaid in all my life.

I hardly ever comment anymore, but I'm still following your blog (I almost said "following you" - creepy) and have loved hearing about your move and now your rad fucking job. I'm really happy for you, and can totally relate to the "never been so happy to be underpaid" feeling. Congrats! Keep the updates coming.

Wow, I can so relate. First of all, congrats on the job! Like you, I am a (half)Italian Jersey girl who just moved to AZ. I finished law school last year and passed the bar in NY. Unlike you, I am still unemployed. Ugh. So I am going to drown my sorrows in Sookie books. Any advice on finding a job in the desert?
