"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both"
I've mentioned this a million times, but I am in law school. If you're in law school, have friends/family in law school, I am sure you are aware that about 98% of everyone in law school has moments of doubts. We like to think things like:
"WHAT WAS I THINKING?!
"LAW SCHOOL HAS RUINED MY LIFE!"
"SOMETIMES I WISH I WAS JUST A HIPPIE ON A BEACH WITH A MOJITO IN HAND"
and the worst:
"WHAT IF I DON'T END UP WANTING TO BE A LAWYER?"
(just to name a few)
Lately my friends and I have been talking about what we MIGHT have been if we followed a different path. A path that we had once considered but for some reason or another we didn't take.
I've been on a couple whale watching trips recently which were amazing! I didn't get any pictures because I just wanted to enjoy the moment otherwise I'd share. On one trip a humpback whale was seriously about 4 ft away from me. If I had been allowed, I could have reached over the front of the boat and touched him! I also saw many whales on a hike I did. They are seriously beautiful creatures. This reminded me of the path I almost took: becoming a marine biologist. I also had another path: becoming a vet.
Sometimes I sit and think that maybe I should have taken one of those paths. But really, that's just a waste of time! If I had done that then I may not be where I am today. I certainly would not have met Mr. Aussie and I probably would not be in Australia.
There is a reason I took the path I did, even if I don't fully understand it! At the end of the day I LOVE law school and I think I am going to love being a lawyer. I love where I am and who I am with.
