On Leaving the Law

In mid-2010, I left my lawyer job for an administrative assistant position.  The dismal job market combined with the JD (read: scarlet letter) on my resume left me with limited career options.  I took the plunge and went through some, ahem, challenges.  These days, my future looks a lot brighter, but feel free to be entertained by the various humiliations I experienced immediately post-law.  The way I see it, I suffered...so you don't have to.
