Another year is hear along with another birthday. Part of me can't believe that I am 42 though I will admit there are some days where I definitely feel all those 42 years. This year should bring about a big change for me personally as I prepare to change my career. My paralegal course that I am taking through Rice University is over in less than a month. I must say that I absolutely love it. The more I learn about the legal field the more interesting things I discover. In fact my one major gripe about that class is that it is not long enough. I know that sounds crazy especially from me, someone who hated school and could not wait to graduate. I'd like to think that now that I am older I am a better student. There's also less distractions atleast in my case. I don't have a wife or kids and I'm really not all that concerned about my dating life right now so it allows me to put all my effort towards this class. After the class is over, then I can address other areas of my life that need improvement.
One thing that does worry me about this year is that its an election year. It will be nearly impossible once again to escape hearing about how candidate A or B is an asshole (depending on your side). In fact I probably will try to take a vacation maybe this year, atleast for a weekend, just to clear my head and escape. Maybe a fishing trip or something, I'll have to think about it. I wish people would realize that all of us as Americans have much more in common with each other than differences. We all want to live in a safe country, have our kids be educated and safe, do well in our careers, etc. It's only the debates on policy that can get inflammatory and unhinged. I pray that we can all come together though I fear it will not happen.
I plan on updating some more but it will have to wait till tomorrow. I'm actually typing this on my break from class. Back to class now.
