Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

I’m headed back to College Station today- WHOOP! I’m actually really sad to be leaving my family, but I’m really excited about my internship, which starts tomorrow- yay! I’ll also be glad to get back to my apartment, my roommates, and life as an independent woman. I’ve always gone home for the summer, so staying should definitely be an adventure. This week, as I start my internship, I’m a little bit nervous. However, I recently came across this quote, and it’s been very encouraging:

I’ve been going back and forth between wanting to go to law school and wanting to pursue a career in marketing and public relations after graduation for about the past year, and the answer doesn’t seem to be getting any clearer. On one hand, I’m scared to go to law school because I’m afraid I’ll end up not liking it as much as I thought, and on the other hand I’m afraid that if I don’t, I’ll always wish that I did. So you see my dilemma. Although both of those options terrify me, they both seem amazing in different ways. So when looking for an internship, I decided to apply for any and all that would be beneficial to either a career as an attorney, or a career in public relations and whatever happened, happened. But, within three days I was offered a position in both fields- my internship from the law firm I worked at last summer, and an internship in the public relations field in College Station. Needless to say, I didn’t know what to do- I never thought I’d get one of each! Ultimately, I chose the internship in College Station, because it continues through the school year, and it’s an opportunity for me to explore a different career path that I’m interested in. I’m kind of afraid that after this summer, I’ll love public relations and will no longer want to go to law school- something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. But I’m more afraid that if I pass up this opportunity, I’ll regret it. Even though it scares me, it’s an awesome opportunity, so I’m going to go for it. And even if I do end up going to law school, any experience in a professional environment is very valuable!  Wish me luck as I start tomorrow, and get ready for many Work Wardrobe posts!

That’s all for meow!

#finals2012

Hey Cats!

So, it’s finals week.

Gross.

Actually, I have a love-hate relationship with finals. Hate for the obvious reasons of “I’ve been in the library since dawn and I have NO RECALL OF THIS INFORMATION WHATSOEVER”, and love because it means classes are almost over and I can go home and eat real food and blog and craft for days. And they mean I will soon find out my GPA for the semester, which makes me really excited. As long as it’s good. Which brings me to my next point.

I have BIG NEWS EVERYONE. I think I have decided what I’m going to do with my life. Finally.

I have decided to go to law school! Well not like, now, obviously, since I’m only in my second year of college, but I have decided to head in that direction. I’ve been thinking about being a lawyer for a long time, but I finally decided to commit and make it my actual, concrete goal. AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. Last week I went to pre-professional advising and had a nice, encouraging chat with Karen. It was so great, she was such a gem. Hopefully this is actually what I want to do and I haven’t just been watching Legally Blonde too much.

So there’s that.

Also, I’ve been thinking about what I plan to do with my time over Christmas break. First, I will sleep. For as long as I want. And it will be blissful. You see, I somehow got 8 a.m. classes four days a week this semester, and I seem to have something to do early every Saturday, so I can’t remember the last time I slept in. Next, I will frantically run around and buy everyone Christmas gifts. I have an idea of what I’m getting my Princess SisterCat, but I can’t say because she will read this. I have NO IDEA what I’m getting my parents. Maybe I’ll just limit my whiny phone calls to once a week, they will LOVE THAT. After I have all my shopping done, I will catch up with my high school friends. They’re so great, and I love them. Most of us are scattered all over the place, so we only see each other during Thanksgiving/Christmas/Summer breaks. We’re already planning a potluck dinner, since we’re all so excited that we’re basically gourmet chefs now that we don’t live in the dorms.We’ll also probably FREAK OUT about the fact that WILLIAM AND KATE ARE HAVING A BABY OMG. Out senior year was the Royal Wedding, and we stayed up all night and had a party and woke up at 4 to watch it live and wore dresses to school. So we’ll obviously be having a baby shower for them.  Also, I’ll be hanging out with my Princess SisterCat. We’re besties, and we’re going to have a great time being together for an entire month. Especially when we have our Christmas Eve sleepover! I can’t wait. I’ll also eat way too much, but luckily big bulky sweaters are in. Just kidding. Kind of. And then I’ll do whatever I want, but that’s not any different from any other day of my life.

As I mentioned earlier, it’s finals week. So I leave you with this. I hope you can control yourselves better than this girl. (sometimes I feel like doing this to the annoying freshman couple that makes out on the couch in the libs, but I don’t. Thank God.)

Until next time!
