Not only would this job make me feel grown-up and somewhat more connected to my favorite Law and Order characters, but it would be incredibly interesting. And fulfilling. And all sorts of wonderful.
And I could totally wear my boyfriend jacket to work (and no that's not the real reason I want the job, just a fashionable bonus). It even fits with my school schedule, which is down-right miracle. It would just be so fast-pace and exciting....and...
Okay you get the point. I'm practically hyperventilating I'm so in love with this job. There's only one thing--I won't get it. You have to have court experience, an area in which I sadly fall short. (They also prefer paralegal and criminal justice majors). But you know what? Although I am most definitely facing rejection, something I've always feared, I think I am going to apply. Yeah you heard me court officials! You're gonna have to turn me down in person. (Although they could probably just mail me a rejection notice...)
I'm just setting myself up for failure, but oh well. A girl's gotta hope. (Plus, rejection would probably justify a Papa Johns/ice cream night).
Love you all.
