My best buddy and I were sharing classes in school, however our job paths diverged completely.
- All of us were both interested in philosophy and writing and I assumed every one of us would both end up laboring for a school someday .
All of us had endless discussions in dorm rooms staying up late smoking cannabis and listening to songs. In the end, every one of us both graduated with BA degrees in philosophy. I went to graduate school to continue down that path while she took the LSAT and started applying to law schools around the country. I seriously considered following her path, however I was dissuaded by the attorney who hired me for office filing while I was a highschool senior. She was irritated then and sadly took her life a few years later after making a excruciating real estate deal, and it soured me on the job. However, my buddy has excelled in law and did phenomenally well while she was a law student. Now he’s laboring for a big law firm in the midwest. Although her goal was to work in constitutional law, she was put in the family and estate law department when the firm hired him. It’s steady work for an attorney because you’re dealing with a person’s estate before and after they are deceased. Not to be morbid, however people are dying every single afternoon so the need for a family lawyer never goes away. As long as you don’t get involved in a nasty inheritance battle among family members, it’s relatively low stress work as well. She tells me that she wouldn’t want to work in any other section of law if she had the choice, especially now that he’s getting established as a junior lawyer at her law firm.
