So, work just announced that our prosecutions division - the area that I've been the legal assistant for for the past seven-ish years - is going to merge with the prosecutions division of the Ministry of Labour. The prosecutors will be relocating to the MoL office.

I won't be going with them.

They're keeping me here. Despite seven plus years of experience in doing the job, in spite of the effort I've put into making sure everything runs smoothly. Despite the fact I enjoy the job and put my heart into it. Despite the fact there's not actually enough work with the solicitors for three of us, if H's reading for half the day is anything to go by.

I guess you don't actually realise how much you love something and appreciate stability until it's gone. I've got relationships with all of my prosecutors - I call them my boys as shorthand - and I have to say goodbye to them, all at once. Come May, they'll be out of the office and in another building and I'll be facing an uncertain future as S.'s lackey, by the looks.

Thank god I'll hopefully be qualified as a paralegal by September, so I have options. This is so not how I wanted things to go. :(

I'm so sorry, hon. Did you ask why they weren't taking you with them?

That sucks and a merger is always hardest on the part of the group that's smaller/being merged into a group. I'm so sorry - hopefully between your certification you'll get this year and your years of experience, you shouldn't have any issue finding something new and exciting.

That really sucks. I hope things work out okay for you and that paralegal you finds a whole plethora of awesome options opening up for you.

I'm sorry to hear that, Rossi. Good to know you're making progress in your studies and paralegal qualifications, though -- you're getting somewhere, and like you said, you'll have options. Take heart that you had the foresight to get this going. Hope it works out.
