On some level, I must love the chaos.
This week has been particularly busy with Kim doing her pre-proposal defense.
Afterward her advisor wrote me to say that Kim did a good job. I think we’re finally getting through. For the first time, I actually BELIEVE that Kim will be finished in May.
And now that finishing in MAY feels like an actual possibility, I’ve decided to apply for law school.
I have to get my ass in gear and take the LSAT in September and apply to the places that Kim applies for a job and then just wait and see.
I posted a facebook update saying that I had an epiphany that I was going to apply for law school this fall and I received quite a few comments on my status. Most were positive I’ll admit. But then the negative ones filled my inbox.
One friend told me to have a beer with her husband (who does not like being a lawyer) before deciding on anything. Another wrote the following: “if you like your soul, you will reconsider.” Another wrote about her law school regret – the the tune of $100,000 of debt.
I know it seems quick. But really it isn’t. When I was 22 years old I knew I wanted to go to law school and the only thing stopping me was the cost. Looking back, I think that is a miserable reason not to pursue my dreams.
Don’t worry. I have a lunch lined up with a friend. Advising lined up at the school. And Kimmie’s giving a couple of days to study for the LSAT.
My dad thinks we should just give ourselves a break. But I’ve had a break for the last decade, and I’m itching to get back to school.
More soon. But not too soon, I’m going to be out of town for the next week.
