life is swell

After attempting a few online journal relationships, I’ve dedicated myself to one for good. Oh, the scary tinge of “commitment.” May I present my blog …

This comes at a year in limbo in my life and I thought what better time than NOW to share my experiences – of working at a law firm and applying (and hopefully going) to law school. I’m writing this when I should be doing about a million other things — studying for the lsat, filling out law school apps, writing something more insightful (poetry? a novel?) … yet here i am: beginning my journey through a stressful year – a time that i’m sure i will envy greatly as i get settled into adulthood (*gulp*) and make my way through the amalgam of choices that lie at my feet. I’ll leave you with a quote from author Walker Percy – one that pretty much defines how excited I am to be anxious about my future (I know, I’m weird) : “The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.” Welcome.

  1. Anna, I was thinking about this very thing today. I am so happy to be freaking out about where I am…because it means I don’t have a house payment, a family depending on me, or even a clue of where I will be in two years! Yes, these are the days we will look back on with envy :).

    Glad you have a blog, too!
