(GASP!) - I object!

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

I SO want you to make a YouTube clip where you walk down the street, someone whistles at you and grabs your ass and you say, "I object!," and then smile at the camera. I would love that!!!!

I think law school is a great idea! You can do anything that you want to. You are one of the few people who, I honestly believe, can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Oooh...and you seem like such a nice guy! Are you SURE you want to end up being a lawyer?

My honest suggestion: interview 5 lawyers before you go to law school. Please. Do it for me.

Go for it, you love a challenge.

I LOVED law school. HATE practicing law, but law school was a blast. I say go for it. It was a dare to take the LSAT that propelled me into law school. I took the LSAT dare and ended up scoring in the 99.99th percentile (I'm good at tests) and so I figured after that I had to go to law school.

There are some great law schools in Chicago so it's a good place to be.

I'm comfortable using legal jargon in everyday situations.

And all those opposed to chafing say aye!

You go, girl!
