The Need to Become a Lawyer

Most of us young adults experience this what we call early mid-life crisis (I just made that up, haha)

I am now 25, and I am still in school. Well, in order to become a lawyer,ome has to go to law school so here I am juggling public service and law school all at once.

The question is: Why am I doing this?

On happiness.

It is important, that whatever you are pursuing right now, you are happy with it. Career-wise, you should be happy emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, and your job pays good, right? But practical-wise, sometimes you can teach yourself to love your good-paying-job-but-with-unbearable-boss.

I like to drive fast from Mina to law school for classes. I also like that my schedule is oftentimes occupied. Yeah, I still long for chillax moments but I am happy pursuing further education. Should I be happy that my body is often tired at the end of the day? Perhaps not, but to keep being happy, you have to make sure that you sleep enough, eat healthy, and squeeze in some good moments with your boyfriend and family. That’s the reason why I make sure that as soon as I retire in my bed, I get 7 hours of sleep. Otherwise, my mood will be erratic by morning.

Happiness is not just a state of mind, it is also the state of your body. So give yourself more happiness by taking care of your body (plus, good laugh and sweet cuddles with boyfie).
On self-fulfillment.

It might seem that things are going well with me, but I feel like I still have tons of things I want to achieve. I think that’s normal. Because human desires are insatiable by nature.

Sometimes, bigtime challenges surprise me. Sometimes, crisis wake me up in the middle of the night. Sometimes, I do not even have social life. Sometimes, my scores in exams suck. But since I chose this life, I shall finish this.

I won’t stop and I will never stop until I become a lawyer.
