My New Office

My office had some openings this past year and I was so anxious to apply for them. I have an Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies so when some of our paralegals retired I knew that I would finally have the opportunity to start a career.

There were 3 paralegal openings on my floor and I applied for all 3. I interviewed for 2 and my boss asked me which one did I really want so I told her. Well, last week she and the U.S. Attorney told me that I got the job!!!

I was so excited!! What a fantastic Christmas gift!! So out of my cubicle and into an office I go. I am so excited to start my new career! Below are some photos of my new office. I really hate the furniture but oh well....

Overview of my office

Family photos of course

I decided to bring my Von Maur throw and place it on my chair.
I love it for warmth and the color that it provides.

We have limited resources for furniture so I used my drawer for a table.
I dressed it up with some of my photos and magazines.

I snagged this chair from another empty office. I placed it in front of my desk
so that when people come in to talk they have a place to sit.
I added my faux scarf for some luxury. 

And of course one must have a mirror for decor and personal grooming.

    1. Thank you Mrs. Shery! It was the reason why I went to college. I wanted to be a paralegal for so long. It feels good to actually use my degree! Happy New Year to you too!
