    I used to practice law. My license is still current.

    I have two questions:

    Are you attending a top ten/Ivy League law school? If yes, then

    Are you paying for it? If no, then, and only then, consider practicing law.

    Otherwise, unless you have an obsessive love of doing meaningless paperwork for really long hours for shit pay, drop out now. I am absolutely stunned with all the information that is currently out there (which wasn't when I went to law school) that anyone with a college degree is so brain dead as to think law is still a viable career for 90% of people that complete law school.

    I finally get to ask what I've always wanted to ask you on the open board:

    Who is the stupidest person you ever talked to at PP?

    What kind of freelance writing do you do? How have you gotten 'recognized' in that field? How much do you get paid?

    Following Crown, who is the trashiest woman you've dealt with there? Ever encountered someone coming in with 4 children from all different fathers that are addicted to meth? Have you dealt with anyone who wanted an abortion well past the point it is legal?

    Well, there are two kinds of stupid that I deal with. There are people who are really stupid about sexual health, and then there are people who are really stupid about life in general. I routinely have to help people count to 5 and 9, for just one example. I think someone new takes the title of stupidest person I've ever talked to every single day. (Here are some of my favorites, if you missed it the first time I posted it a while ago). But, for now, I think my favorite was the girl who was concerned about pregnancy because she farted right after giving her boyfriend a blowjob, and she though sperm was in the fart and could get into her vagina from there, just because it displayed such a marvelous misunderstanding about how SO many thing work in the world and in your body. This same girl also thought that her getting diarrhea was her shitting out a baby because she was on birth control, and that's how she thought it worked.

    I primarily write service-y articles about food, fashion, other cultural things, news about the city, and travel. I also write personal essays, but those don't get published as frequently. Right now my main gig is writing a food column for a local magazine, and random things here and there. I work many more hours at my Planned Parenthood job than I did with my previous day job, so the freelancing has fallen a bit by the wayside. I've recently started pitching more regularly, though.

    I'm not entirely sure if this is what you mean by getting recognized, but I consider any time I'm published to be recognized. I've also won a few (small) awards.

    Not enough.

    We have Baby Daddy conversations pretty regularly, where they give us all the dates they had unprotected sex with different people and ask us to figure out who got them pregnant.

    I work for their national chat line, not in any of the centers, so I've talked to plenty of people who are wondering if they'd be able to still get an abortion but end up past the point of being able to. There isn't much to deal with in those conversations that's different than any other conversations, unless they're a harasser who thinks that they can get us to say "Okay sure we'll give you an illegal abortion, TEEHEE."

    Alright this isn't for me, but rather for a friend of mine. Due to a combination of medical issues that are out of his control, and the fact he majored in history (a bachelors in history with a minor in political science; to be precise), he's relatively fucked in the local job market. So in a nut shell my friend is going for a paralegal degree in a local community college; and he's due to graduate in December. He has some limited experience in the field, having done a contract job in the county courthouse for about a year.

    What is his outlook in the legal field? I know there are a lot of variables here, but with the market for lawyers being complete shit right now I'm not sure how all that would transfer over to paralegals. Is he pursuing a viable career or is he wasting his time and efforts?

    If it makes any difference he's looking more at working at a firm that either contracts with the Department of Defense, or a firm that works mainly with deeds, wills, and other such things. He's got no real interest in the criminal trial stuff.

    No. I've thought about it, though. Those sermons get boring and the mind wanders.

    I am an X-ray and ultrasound tech at the busiest trauma hospital in the US. Not sure if that's interesting to anyone but I will answer whatever questions y'all might have.

    I always felt that objective tests such as the GMAT; USMLE; LSAT were more important than GPA. GPA can be highly variable based on where you went to school and how rigorous the classes were. These tests were very objective since it tested people in the same allotted time frame and with the same level of difficulty of questions. This is also based on the fact that people who generally did well on these objective tests got into more prestigious residencies/medical schools. Of course my experience is limited to Medical school, residency, and fellowship applications so take that for what it's worth.

    What is the worst/funniest thing someone had stuck inside them? When my friend was a nurse, a guy came in with a pool noodle stuck up his butt. He said it was his first time doing it and he was just experimenting. My friend said there was no way he could get something that size up there if it was his first time. Anyone swallow anything weird or something like that?

    We used to love her stories.
