It’s official. I am ready to be done with school. More than ready. I am totally over school. If grad school were my boyfriend we would have the talk that starts with “It’s not you, really, its me… I just don’t feel the same any more.” And everyone knows how that ends up.
I love Marquette, really, I LOVE MARQUETTE. I have had the best years of my life here (personally I think I am having more fun in grad school than I did in under grad, but regardless it was and is a good time) but I am ready for the next step. I always want to be a student in some sense and keep up on the latest social media and marketing trends but sitting down at my desk and knowing that I am going to easily be writing over 100 pages of assigned papers this semester and I am going to have pretty much zero time to ride with work and school doesn’t get me excited.
I think it has something to do with the fact that I am getting older. I will be 24 in a few weeks, and I know to many people that doesn’t sound old but I am ready to get my life going and have a rock star job that I can love and make legit money in. But I guess in order to have that killer job you first need to know what you want to do… and that I don’t have figured out yet either. Awesome…
I am taking the LSAT in October and I know my family wants me to go to law school, even if they say “do what makes you happy.” Yea, don’t lie to me I know you want me to do it just because the whole Franzoi side is in law. And I really feel like if I don’t go I will be letting my family down, and I hate that. The only way I would want to do it is if I could move to NYC, my favorite place ever, and represent bands. Plus, if I am over grad school the thought of being in school for another three years and being almost 30 when I am done with my education does not really appeal to me. I just don’t really like law that much. The idea of making good money and wearing awesome Prada suits to work every day is pretty appealing but eh, I am luke warm on the whole thing. And I never want to do something half assed. I mean I work at a law firm now as a file clerk and I hate my job, well maybe not hate because I really like the people with whom I work, but it is def not my first choice but the money is good and I know I should just be thankful I have a job… but I really want to work in marketing.
I really just want a job that I like and that I can make enough to support my horse habit. I love my boys, Sparky and Rudolf are my saving grace and I really do not know who I would be or what I would do with out my horses. I don’t think people really understand what that is like unless they have owned a horse. Its is not like having a dog or cat at all… It’s a grand passion that takes a person over. If someone were to ask me what my “drug of choice” was… its horses 100%. That’s why no matter what I am always going to work very hard at whatever I do so I will always be able to ride, and if I am lucky keep showing. Maintaining the lifestyle I have is good motivation to work hard, even if I don't especially enjoy job (aka law firm).
Hence, why finishing my masters is a good idea. More education can never hurt. Okay, I feel a bit better now. Thank you, weebly.
