I’m 26, turning 27 in a few weeks’ time, and today, I’m going back to school as a full-time student.
I’m happy and excited to finally devote my whole time and attention to the study of law after three semesters of rushing towards school for my 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. class from eight-hour workdays and fighting the urge to rest after class because I still have to study for tomorrow’s class. But I am also nervous and scared, now that I have no idea what is going to happen along the way, and am horrified because I am uncertain if things will be better after this. Will my future career as a lawyer be better than my accounting profession? Did I make the right decision in leaving my job and focus my efforts to making myself a lawyer? Will it be worth it or am I just wasting time and money for this endeavor?
As I was having these questions in my head, I am grateful that I saw this post. It uplifted my spirit and made me think that there is no need to be afraid.
True, I do not want to be stuck in the same place my whole life. To me, that is worse than not living at all. This quote helped me remember why I decided to go full-time with my law studies – I don’t want to be in the same place and do the same thing for the rest of my life.
I’ve always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. To become one, I had to let go of my job and get out of my comfort zone. Thankfully, I have the best parents and siblings in the world, who will always support me in reaching my goals. I promise that I will become a lawyer, make them proud, and pay them back big time.
Also, I want to become like Harvey Specter.
