Going Back to Law School
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!
