I have been done with the Bar for a little over a week now. I don’t really know how it went. I felt I left myself on the paper and, really, that is the best I could do. I find out November 22 if I have to do this whole insanity again. I won’t be surprised either way.
But what is pervasive about my life now, is that it seems to be asking me, now what? I am officially done with education. All that I have been doing for the past 22 plus years is over. I left for Miami, like a bat out of hell, but I am not even sure what I was running from. I don’t know how to do anything but be a student. Now I am opening myself up to this giant abyss of, now what?
I start work on Wednesday and that is it. I am an adult with a nine to five job. Well, technically it is 7:30 to who knows when, but you get the gist. I am excited to start work but this will be the first time where work has been my sole focus. No school going on in the background constantly. I have an itch to be working towards something.
Apparently this is quite normal for Bar takers. We have been so focused and working so hard and then all of a sudden its over. I suppose it must be like being let out of jail. I have all this time that I get to choose what do with. How weird is that?
Today I had a day completely to myself and I did errands all. day. long. Attending to things that have been sorely neglected for the past six months. I finally got my hair trimmed properly. I no longer look like a hot mess. Or, at least, I look like I know how to groom myself.
I have been sleeping like it is some delicious drug, nine hours a night. I read a book, for fun! I didn’t even know I was still capable of doing that.
So, now what? I am not a lawyer. I am not a law student.
Without further ado, here are some pics of my somewhat up in the air life.
