Thoughts on school

So last night I was in the middle of paying for my LSAT Prep class when I randomly decided that I don’t want to apply for law school yet. I started thinking about all the reasons I actually want this, since its such a huge investment (3 years of time, 150K+ in tuition) and decided that I should probably intern or work at some law firm for AT LEAST a year before I do this, because I would hate to invest that much for nothing.

Another reason is that I often get too influenced by my Uncle who is very successful and an amazing defense attorney, and I keep thinking that after I graduate I will immediately become just like him, especially when he tells me that I would be great at it, but then when I think about it realistically I realize that he went to law school during the Carter Administration and probably only paid $3,000 a year, plus he has worked for the state since 1980, and has no idea how difficult it is to get into law school now, and he probably doesn’t know how expensive it is.

So instead I’m going to apply for a masters degree instead, find a job at a law firm, work there for a year, and I will figure the rest out later.

"Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake."
