Current Mood: Lazy
For someone that can be so quirky, it surprises a lot of people to know that I plan on going into the straight-laced career of Criminal Prosecution Attorney. Basically, the lawyer who’s always the bad guy in the movies. Haha.
In order to get there of course, I need to get into the best law school possible. Certain life situations make my choices limited to nearby schools – which means that I need to get the best score on my LSAT (LAw School Admissions Test) to get as much funding from my choice schools. My LSAT score without practicing is actually quite high – but I’d get even more money if I could boost it up a few more points. So I signed up for a study course run by a single Professor in one of my choice law schools UC Irvine. The class schedule is pretty rigorous, you can view it here. For example: this Saturday and Sunday I will be taking the class from 10AM-7pm with only an hour break for lunch. x _ x Ugh. The things we do for our future.
In addition to that: I am working a full time job for my family and two part time freelance jobs. I also have Bucket to worry about, that’s a whole ‘nother thing entirely.
You see currently I live in Long Beach, CA and Bucket LIVED in Anaheim, CA. That’s about 24 miles or 45 minutes of driving.
BUT Bucket has recently been given an opportunity to basically get free room and school…the only catch? He has to move to San Diego. Here’s a visual.
Getting the picture? When I first found out I was hysterical – I was sure the relationship would end. I’ve had plenty of long distance relationships but they STARTED out that way. This is completely different. Bucket assured me not to worry, that everything would be fine yada yada. I’ve had about two months to make my peace with it and it’s happening today whether I like it or not. The only thing is that Bucket finally realized what a HUGE move this is and what a big change it will be. For one thing, we won’t be able to go back to his place when neither of us wants to do anything but still wants to spend time together. And staying at my place? With my family? It’s so not an option.
And while we both agree we will be able to get rooms and find other things to replace video games…it’s just not going to be the same.
Not to mention that I’m about to jump into Law School and essentially commit relationship suicide. I’ll try my hardest by keeping Bucket involved and informed about my law studies, but it’s kind of hard to do it when he keeps making fart noises. -w-; (BTW here‘s an excellent article on maintaining a relationship through law school.)
Plus of course blogging, RP, gaming and all the other doo-dads I find to consume my time. All in all. I’m a tired person.
Hope your lives are doing well!
