The Future Is Here

"Jess, really all i want to do is write music," Chris informed me yesterday as i stepped out of his car. Nathalie's newest career aspiration is "Maureen Dowd." Amongst the awards to be handed out at the 3L Olympics next week: Most likely give up the practice of law, move to Montana, and become a rancher. Choosing just one was tough: Sean's happiest moments in life were hiking down the Appalachian Trail, and Mark lived on a ranch in Wyoming before law school - but apparently Braddock already has his kayaking business planned, so i believe he embodies the spirit of the award. Tanya's tempted to return to radio, having found the perfect position as a programming director (except it's in Tennessee or some similarly uninhabitable place). In law school, we're trained to ask a lot of questions - but it doesn't take a lot of training to wonder why we all showed up here.

As for me? I came to law school because i had no idea what i wanted to do with my life. Three years later, not much has changed.

Wait, Ms. Skrebes, you still don't know what you want to do with your life yet?

I think we'll never actually know. It's a cruel trick of liberal arts education- you become critical of so much that it's hard to be satisfied with anything. Maybe you should have stuck with engineering where there are actual answers- ; )

Miss you hon. Maybe I will plan a road trip this summer. You are more than welcome to come down and visit here- perhaps the answer to the meaning of life is somewhere in Colonial Williamsburg- ; )
