“Nothing in life is easy” said every parent alive right now.
If you’ve ever taken a 7 hour exam, then you can relate to the brain fart that is the 48 hours after the exam. After stopping your life to prepare for said exam, and stressing yourself for months on end, your brain just kind of stops. What exam am I talking about you may ask? The First year law students exam.
Law school is one of those animals that has many routes. As for me, I have taken the part-time, on-line DIY type of learning. The only caveat is that you must prove to the state that you have learned first year topics as the students that have gone to an ABA school- this means American Bar Association approved school. So $700 dollars and 7 hours later, you must wait about 2 months before your results come in the mail…arghhhh!
Anyhow, enough of my complaining. I’m happy that we have the option to pursue higher learning once family life and/or work begins. To anyone else that is pursuing higher learning, you rock. Like you rock so hard, that if I knew you i’d buy you coffee and a cupcake. This shit is hard. Really hard. Especially when the kids want your attention or want to play…or everyone else is hanging out and having fun without you. You keep telling yourself that it will be worth it in the end but it really doesn’t feel that way all the time.
If you are on a similar path like I am…keep going. As hard as it is there is life after school. And hopefully the kids won’t remember- or they will remember and they will be happy that their parents want to be better.
