There will always be changes that occurs prior to and after some event in your life. There have been some instances that’ll greatly affect your life.
Law School: Before and After
It’s been a while since my last post about my law school diaries. At first, it made me feel awkward sharing since I feel shy about this journey. I just have a few posts about this chapter in my life since some may say that I have so much time that I could still blog about it. Here’s a walk-through on my realizations before and after I entered law school.
Just some back story:
Being a lawyer has been my childhood dream. I have been surrounded by lawyers or law graduates almost all my life. My godmother who practically raised me is a law graduate and she has been playing a big part of my life since.
So seeing my aunt’s books greatly motivated me to be work hard and graduate college and soon, enter law school. One of my closest uncles was a lawyer as well. Even if he’s in heaven now, I strongly feel he’s been watching me. Even one of my grandfathers was also a lawyer.
Prior to law school
Prior to entering law school, I was a Human Resource Management graduate from De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde. Since I was a fresh grad then, looking for jobs was the priority for a person like me. I applied to various companies and hoped to be accepted. There were some rejections and some accepted applications.
Adulting is really hard. Accepting the responsibilities and managing your expenses is a tough thing to do. Let alone, getting your dream job!
Dilemmas are around to shake us and to let us think that there are so many obstacles prior to reaching your goals. I’ve heard from my friends that they have worked that they have been assigned various positions than what they have aspired for. Those are real stories from real people.
I’ve tried working a corporate job but things were different and I think that was the sign for me to pursue mine.
Entering law school
I just applied to one school and it accepted me. There were thoughts of transferring but never materialized. At first, I felt walking down an unfamiliar path and just those eyes looking at me. Staring at me. Glaring at me. I felt those mixed emotions like when you are happy and scared about something. As well as when there are butterflies in your stomach.
I realized then and there that there’s no turning back. Well, more of either make it or break it. I was down the road of no return. 😂 There’s always a chance to turn back but I did not. I prepared myself myself by watching Suits, How To Get Away With Murder (again). The protagonists would always inspire me to be better, be a critical thinker and be an optimist.
During and After School
That meme is true! Sleep is practically nothing when you are in law school. The books and cases would usually take most of your time but I don’t think of it that way. It still depends on how you manage things and your time. People wonder how I manage calligraphy, my blog and studies. I just have my planner and my calendar where I plot and strive to plan things out when to do things.
Being organized helps, really! Almost in anything that you do, from cooking meals to creating and hosting events.
- Law school is tough. Really.
- One learns a lot when go to law school. From being organized to having fun while studying for law school!
- There will be those who instances that you will feel sad or down but always keep in mind why you started.
- Don’t forget to still have fun while being in law school.
- No man is an island!
So what do you think of pursuing your dream career? 😃
