I've had this niggling idea for years and years. Something I thought about doing, but as with anything that's a challenge in my life, I've discounted myself right out of it. I'm not smart enough, I'm not good looking enough, I'm not healthy enough, I'm too lazy, etc etc etc.
I know, don't lecture.
But last year when I joined the AIDS Marathon Training Program things changed. Yes, I went in thinking "I'll never be able to do it." Our first 3 mile run was going to be a wash. I knew I could never run 3 miles without stopping much less 1 mile. When I finished that first 3 mile run and hadn't stopped, the impact of that hit me like a ton of bricks and I got a little emotional.... and mad.
Mad at myself wondering how many things I'd held myself back on because I didn't think myself good enough.
Well, that niggling idea has been coming back to me over the past month or so and I have decided to at least investigate the idea until someone outside of myself stops me. What's this niggling idea? Law School.
So I'm going to look into it, at the very least take the LSAT and maybe I can submit a video essay like the one below... although I'm not going to Harvard
