In My Pursuit of Happiness

As a recent law school graduate that has passed the bar, I am overwhelmed with questions like: “What law are you practicing?,” “Where are you working?,” “Which firm do you work for?” I am sure that all recent college or professional school graduates understand what it is like to go through this.

I think is hard for me because I have always known what I am going to do next. From high school- it was college, from college- it was law school. This is the first time in my life that I have gotten the infamous “What are you doing now?” questions.

I want to be excited about this point in my life where I can pursue anything, but I am the type of person that has always had a plan and it provides me with a feeling of security. I can’t escape the feeling of embarrassment when I have to give an ambiguous answer about my current employment.

I think I want to use this blog as way to track my journey. I know so many people are going through this stage in their life, and at least for me it is hard to connect with others because I am too shy/embarrassed to discuss it with anyone. So if you are in this stage in your life or have already gone through it, please message or comment below. I am starting to get excited about what is up next.

First Post

So… I feel like I need a disclaimer before beginning my blogging journey. My domain name in no way describes my blog. When I decided to start a blog, I thought I could write about how to save money on food, beauty products, and travel. I am not an extreme couponer, but I will search long and hard for a good deal on almost everything. However, before publicly revealing my blog, I became very anxious about it and immediately wanted to delete it. I think focusing on that was just too much pressure for me.

After realizing that, I decided that I was going to blog for me.  I needed a place that I could look back upon my life for years to come. I have made many photo albums over the years, putting in hours of work, only to lose them shortly thereafter. I decided that this would be a good way to track my life, and for my family to check it out as well.

I am also at an awkward point, where I am trying to figure what I am going to do with my life. I graduated from law school last year and passed the bar. But the journey to establishing myself into a career that I love has proven to be a bumpy one and I am excited to share it and find others that feel the same way.

I might not be interesting or I might not be able to keep up with posting. But I thought I would give it a try either way. I am going to post every Sunday night…(if I remember/have time- already coming up with excuses).
