It feels like forever since I’ve been here. There has been so much going on which should not be an excuse but…. since this is my blog I’ll make it an excuse just so I can feel better about not being here :).
I want to thank all of you who have stuck around waiting for the next post and I promise that this time it will be coming very shortly. I’m working on doing some software reviews and will be doing some reviews of Apps on the iPad. I may even review some fun apps just because I can.
Seriously, though. I have been really busy at the office and even though I probably could have found the time to post here, I have to admit that I am so tired by the time I get home that I am not able to think of anything to talk to you about. We have had a few paralegals leave to pursue other opportunities and for a while there we were trying to hire as well as keep up with the influx of work. It looks like we’re ok now and my head is finally above water.
It has been a really busy couple of months in the financial industry. 1) a lot of the laws that were passed due to the financial “fiasco” have come to fruition this year, so we are being bombarded with regulations and audits; 2) Because the economy is bound to get better (keeping my fingers crossed) we are positioning ourselves to take advantage of the upturn as soon as it happens and this leads me to why the past 4 months have been feeling like I was run over by a Mac Truck.
An opportunity presented itself for me to take on a new type of work. Currently, along with being the paralegal supervisor and the lead paralegal on all regulatory matters I have also developed a new role as a corporate and foreign registration compliance paralegal. The position never existed at the firm and I have been lucky enough to make it into what I want. Although I’m having a really good time with it and learning a lot, I am exhausted by the time I get home. There are a lot of things to learn and plans to put into practice. I am hoping to be able to write a couple of posts about it but still don’t know exactly how to do that.
Anyway, I just really wanted to say hello to all of you and thank you for sticking around. Please feel free to come by and kick my tired butt so I get on here, Facebook and Twitter more often. After all, I really do enjoy talking to you all and should make the time to do it.
For now, I’m going to have some dinner and I will try to work on a post for next time.
