Google Me!

I just googled myself, and it brought me here. This blog is now officially being publicly traded. Or something like that. So, welcome old classmates, potential employers, extended family members and blind dates who wanted to know a little more about me by asking the internet. This is what you get - I'm sure you will be disappointed. Especially if you are a blind date. What kind of friend tries to set you up with a married woman?

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately. It's been an extremely hectic week. I'm really enjoying my classes, but I'm still not sure it has entirely sunk in that I AM A STUDENT AGAIN. I have been a student for over twenty years of my life. Surely there is more to life, but I don't know what it might be. Ever since high school, I have been counting down to the day when I would be called to the bar as a lawyer, and I feel a little bit like someone who is running a race, and just as she rounds the last corner before the finish line, she realizes that there's actually several miles, a mountain, and a complicated obstacle course before her, rather than the expected straightaway. (Wow, I just looked that up, and not only is that actually a word, but it even means what I thought it did!)

I'm enjoying the ride, though, and learning not to try too hard to figure out what on earth my future might bring. What fun is a roller coaster if you get on it with charts and calculations about what effect each turn is supposed to do to your equilibrium? You just gotta close your eyes and take each turn as it comes, and throw your arms up in the air as you pass the camera. I know you won't buy the picture, $7.00 is highway robbery, but it's still fun to stop by the booth and point and laugh with your friends.

Hmm...I think I can understand the feeling of being a perpetual student. I've been a student so long I wonder what the real world is like? Am I ready for it?
