Given that I've spent the better part of my last three weeks boxing up and organizing all of our closed collection files to ship them off-site, I've had a lot of time to reflect. The result of all that reflection is that I've bummed myself out. Again. Here's a brief comparison of the state of my life five years ago versus now:
2004: Graduated college with a degree in philosophy. Began clerking at the County Clerk's Office in my home town and spent my time alphabetizing and doing general data entry.
2010: I am a licensed attorney. I'm currently clerking for a law firm where I fill in blanks and stand in line all day. As previously mentioned, I also spent the past three weeks boxing up files.
You might be thinking that I haven't made any progress during the past five years of my life....and you would be correct. 2010 better be a big year for me.
