Decipher the Cryptic Blog Post ... or Not

Random things that are really bothering me, some of which I can only refer to in semi-cryptic terms:

  • I have a test on Thursday. First of all, I am a liberal arts major, which means I shouldn't have tests now. Second of all, I have done no reading for said test.
  • I have no summer job and no options. I have no clue what I should do.
  • I am still trying to find my place, painfully conscious of my predecessor's failings and the fact that I need to do one better than that.
  • But I want to do my job without worrying about whether it appears that I'm slacking.
  • Awkwardness (I don't think that's a word, but it should be) is no fun. Waiting is no fun. Confusion is no fun.
  • Housing is WAY too complicated and I don't want to hurt anyone but I don't wanna be hurt and I just wanna have a kosher kitchen and a single. Is that so much to ask?
  • I'm so proud of so much of who I am and what I believe, but there are still things I'd rather hide.
  • I care too much about what people who shouldn't matter to me think of me.
  • Things I don't want to know: details about relationships and drunken escapades of other college students. I'm a good Michlala girl. There are things I just shouldn't know.
  • If I don't study for the LSATs, I will not get into law school, and then I will be a bum with a pretty Columbia degree, which is written in Latin and which I can hang on my wall, but no job and no money and I will have to live in a box on the street in Florida with my sister.
  • It is 5 a.m. I have class at 11. I have done about 1/3 of the reading for said class.
  • And I've been having trouble sleeping.

Lot's to comment on. I'll pick one. Do NOT NOT NOT become a lawyer for the money. Do not become a lawyer because you think it will open doors for you. Do it only if you want to be someone who works every day from 9: till who knows when, sometimes on weekends, and has no life outside of the office. Otherwise, don't study for the LSAT's. trust me I have been down that road myself.

On another note. I just found your blog and I look forward to getting your "back story".

Touche on the summer job beg-a-thon. And on it's oh-goodness-friggin-late and I'm still up (Property reading at 4 a.m. today was an interesting experience.) And don't worry, you know you can at least BS your way thru an exam in any liberal arts class ;-)

Not cryptic at all. Sounds like a lot is going on. I am sure it will all settle down eventually.

You wrote:"I care too much about what people who shouldn't matter to me think of me"

I READ SOMEWHER ONCE THAT " THE PEOPLE WHO CARE DON'T MATTER, AND THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER, DON'T CARE"

DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT, AND DON'T WORRY SO MUCH ABOUT HOW OTHERS WILL THINK OF YOU.

GOOD LUCK.
