Ughhh!! Law school has allowed me to just be a horrible blogger when I once was someone that people (ok, not the public, but PEOPLE) came to see and listen to (read?). Well, I’ll try to “blog” more when I’m tipsy, which is today…like right now. smh.
I walk through the law school hallways like “I HATE TO WRITE!!” mostly because I’m actually REALLY good at math and science and since my PROFESSIONAL/GRADED writing takes too much effort….I hate writing. But I’m actually pretty decent at writing and still plan on writing my own book. And umm….it will be awesome? Why? Because I am awesome and the people I know are beyond awesome. Which equals nothing but awesome stories and sadness and greatness and entertainment.
Annnyyywayyyyyy……………….Where. To. Start.
2L year, also known as ( as in, speak regular people language) my second year in law school….has been going okay. I’m kind of over law school…if that makes sense. It’s made me gain 45 of the 110lbs I’ve lost back, people are constantly telling me that it will be almost impossible to get a job, and well…I’m in Arkansas. Far far way from my loving family in Houston, TX ( I always feel the need to add “TX” even though I’m 100% certain if any other city was named Houston, you would STILL know I was talking about the greatness in Texas). I really don’t know why I’m here.
It’s a constant struggle to convince myself that I won’t be happy elsewhere, as opposed to being in Arkansas. I mean…technically, I won’t…but still. I feel like I don’t need this shit. HOWEVER, the BEST thing that could have happened to me during my career (it’s stupid so keep yourself from saying ‘duh!’) is to get this law clerk position…I’m a real life law clerk, working for a small law firm out here. I think that’s where my greatness will be appreciated more…for a small firm. Then again…I’ll think about that again in a couple of years.
REAL LIFE law is SOOOOOO different from law school. THANK YOU JESUS!!! i’ve realized so much in just the month and half I’ve been working for my boss. It’s simple…well, simple in certain situations and difficult in others. As in, simple to file a divorce (kind of) and difficult to make a small business claim (the evidence to go through is almost torture). But it’s all extremely interesting. I’m nosey by nature so digging into people’s private lives PLUS helping them…that’s all that I was born to do.
Anyway, don’t know where I was going with this but…I’m frustrated and tired. And no law student will tell you any different. They tell you your 1L year is the toughest, but it isn’t after you take what they FORCE YOU to take…you have the responsibility of crafting your own specialty/future. Which is a lot more stressful than people realize.
just think on that. I’ll probably be back to tell you more next Thursday. Or sooner. Depends on the next time I drink 3/4 a bottle of wine at the house again.
Until we meet again…
Oh, and I’m sorry, not in a position to edit.
but I made an A in legal writing so…believe my professor that I know grammar and how to spell.
