The Search for the Perfect Planner

I have a confession to make.  I'm obsessed with day planners.  In fact, to prove to you that I'm obsessed, I'll take a picture of my current "planner situation" to attach to the end of the this post.  It's a problem, a BIG problem.  I'm just never satisfied.  I buy a planner, use it religiously and then my love for it dwindles and I move on to the next.  I just can't be loyal.

My boyfriend doesn't agree with this obsession.  He doesn't agree AT ALL and he makes his feelings known anytime I take the dreaded step into the planner aisle of any Target or office supply store.  He thinks that because I have a blackberry I have no need to keep a planner handy.  Little does he know that I take great joy in filling the pages of, well, multiple planners!

As 2011 approaches I've begun my search for my next planner.  And this time I vow to find one planner and STICK WITH IT all year!  This, my friends, means I have my work cut out for me.   I have to find the perfect planner.  The planner that can truly satisfy me all year long.

I know I'm not alone in my love for planners.  So I need your help!  Tell me about your favorite planner.

And as promised....

                (the worst part: this isn't even all of them...just the one's within arms reach!)

RECAP: Interview # 1

So, Friday was the big day.  It was my first interview since graduating law school.  The interview lasted about 30 minutes and I was definitely asked some strange questions and things I never expected to be asked in an interview.  I felt I did fine, but unfortunately I didn't get a good vibe by the attorneys who interviewed me. 

I got the feeling that they were just looking for someone to do free work for them (which, by the way, is illegal).  They asked if they could send me some material and have me do research for them.  Apparently this is how they "try-out" the new help.  I agreed, but we'll see what happens.  I've decided that I just can't take a job for no pay when I'm not really fond of the attorneys/firm and don't see a future opportunity for myself there.

So, the job hunt resumes...

Interview # 1...Coming Soon!

Tomorrow is the day! 

I have my 1st interview!!!  And, it's in the area of law I want to practice!!!

Not too sure on the specifics yet, but there is a slight possibility the position may be unpaid.  While that is obviously not the ideal situation, I'm just looking forward to finally having an interview.  Wish me luck and I'll report back tomorrow!

In the comments, leave me any interviewing tips you may have!  Thanks!
