LOL. Okay, long-winded comment commencing.....now!

So, I've pretty much been MIA in lj-land because my therapist seems to think that I need to spend less time being introspective. (I thought that was a load of *&#$, but I promised myself that I would try to have an open mind...) Anyways, I saw littlestarletta's post last night. I was pretty much laughing my ass off and trying to plot ways to say, "I hate my blackberry. I want to torture it until it begs me to kill it" into casual conversation.

NOW THE WEIRD PART. This morning, a random stranger literally cold calls me to ask for my thoughts/advice on applying to law school and becoming a lawyer. She literally went on my firm's website looking for a "young, female finance lawyer," dialed me up, and went from there.

And yet, she was so sweet and optimistic that I didn't have the heart to be all RUN AWAY WHILE YOU STILL CAN and pretty much spent ten minutes being sort of enthusiastic in a fake way. =( I gave her advice on how to be successful as a lawyer and, like all pre-law students, she never really thought to ask about how to be happy as a lawyer. Not that I have an answer for that one, haha.

BTW, I charged that ten minutes to "recruiting." But now I wonder if I've failed some sort of test given by the Universe. =/

I don't think you failed some test that universe handed you, just because being a lawyer didn't work out for me doesn't mean it can't work out for others. Furthermore, I used to tell people not to go to law school, but they didn't listen to them anyway, so I decided not to waste my breath. I'm glad to hear from you, though!
