Going Back to Law School

To be or not to be, that is the question...

That is what I have in mind right now. But I do not know if I can push through with it. I stopped studying law school school when I got pregnant with my daughter, Tabebs, who is already 5 years old now. I was in second year on the first semester then, and I preferred to take care of my baby bulge than be stressed with law school pressure.

Last week, i had to indulge in a conversation with a client we had in the office, and he mentioned he was a law student too, in the same university I went to. We found out we had a similarity with the reasons why we stopped, his wife got pregnant also on his second year.

As of today, since I am not yet a regular employee in the DOLE, things just are not in its proper place. I am just praying that God will lead me in the right direction and whatever His plans for me are, I hope to see it in the proper light.

I am reading and reading the Wage Orders that the department has ordered. I want to answer questions raised by the clients who visit the office and who I always got to converse with everyday. I no longer want to refer them to the inspectors just because I do not have the authority to answer their questions. I was challenged by the boss who told me that I have to study the orders even though I am not covered with that "Labor Employment Officer - authority".

Hence, my reason for not reading any other novels nor classics since I have a booklet to memorize provisions, it's as if I went back to law school and is studying the Labor Standards. This time, without having to take a gmat review.

Maybe soon, when there is a need to, I will have to go back to Law School and finish what I once started, or maybe start all over again.

But I'm just thinking it, and I already feel stressed. Ack!

Wow law school! Hey who knows? When your kids are both big na and you have more time for yourself, perhaps law school will feel more "right", know what I mean? :)

All I can say is go back to school and get that law degree the first time you get the chance.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - SJ

If you really dreamed of being a lawyer, no obstacle is too high or road too long to get there. Don't be overwhelmed or scared. Life is a continuing process of learning. We are not planktons whose only purpose in existing is to be at the bottom of the food chain.

it's good that you did not choose to close yourself on the chance of taking law. some prayers and discernment will do.
