A few weeks ago, I took the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). My “career” hasn’t had much direction lately, so I’m considering changing course. Since I probably won’t have a decent enough test score to get into the top schools, I figure it’s best to save money and go for one less expensive and in-state, such as Rutgers School of Law. Alternatively, I may decide to move out to California or some other place not New Jersey, whether I choose to go to law school or not.
This is just an idea I’ve been kicking around lately and I’ll have to completely commit myself to the education if I choose to follow through. I’ve always had so many varied interests, it’s been hard for me to settle on one and turn it into a “career.” I suppose having many interests and talents, while a great quality I’m happy to have, makes it difficult to focus and thus hard to get ahead on any one path.
For example, last year I stopped working in the corporate world to teach in a high school, only to come back to the same corporation when the program was cut back in the fall.
My dissatisfaction with my current job keeps growing and I have a hard time dealing with the fact that the work that I do makes very little use of the things at which I excel. And I’m certainly not getting ahead financially. Maybe law school is the answer. I could take a law degree and have many options for an interesting career.
