I am working on this personal statement and am really having to dig up a lot of my memories from the past 7 years to explain why I want to go to law school and how I came to this decision. It isn’t flowing the way I want it to, it isn’t coming out of me naturally the way my writing usually does. I have had three false starts.
The issue is, I don’t really know where to begin. Do I start with where I decided to go to college? Or even farther back than that? Or do I start with the present day and then let the history unravel naturally as I explain where I am now? I think I might try all three and then decide which works best.
It is cold and gloomy in Plymouth and I have a cold. This may be affecting my mood.
