So I decided to stay at Georgetown Law another year to get my Tax LLM on top of my JD.
Although I joke with friends that I’m “pulling a Van Wilder,”
Or that I’m only staying to meet Tiffany Trump,
The reality is that I’ve finally started to take my future seriously,
And I’d like to test myself in Georgetown Law’s most prestigious program and succeed academically and professionally.
When I told this to my academic advisor she said,
“That sounds great. But what about your writing?”
She’s helped me since the beginning,
When I showed up in her office and told her I’d like to be a “famous star in LA,”
Or when I said I didn’t apply for Law Review because I was playing Playstation,
So I told her the truth again and said that I didn’t know if I’d ever write again.
After almost seven years of chasing my dreams at the expense of almost everything else,
I currently have 222 Facebook Likes (approximately 50 to 70 for which I paid),
So there are days when the rational side of me thinks I failed.
Even on the days when something inside of me tells me to keep believing,
I find it almost impossible to write anything.
Despite the fact that I’m about to enter my eighth year of higher education,
There are many things I don’t know,
But one thing I do know is that life is short.
Like one day in my first year at Georgetown Law,
I got an email saying a student was walking to class when a car hit him and he died.
I don’t wake up every day thinking a car is going to run over me,
But crazier things have happened,
So for the past few years I’ve tried my best to write about the most important moments of my life,
And most if not all those moments have been times with a girl I really liked.
It seems like whenever you reveal how you really feel about a girl,
She seems to not like you anymore.
It seems like she wants you to do the exact opposite.
Like a while ago,
I was driving somewhere with a girl.
I can’t remember what she was doing or saying,
But for some reason,
I half-jokingly said I would drop her off on the side of the road if she didn’t stop.
She looked at me and said,
“You know, your game would actually go up if you did.”
I wasn’t too surprised to hear that,
Because I’ve heard a few girls express something similar in a different way,
But I was just disappointed because she was amazing.
Like one day at school,
I was sitting somewhere before class and pretending to study while actually,
I was tuning out the world with my favorite Beats headphones on when I saw her actually studying.
I wouldn’t have said anything because I was in the middle of an awful day,
But she looked nice,
So I remember thinking that at the very least,
It wouldn’t hurt to say hi to her.
I was right,
Because even though all we did after saying hi was sit across from each other,
It still felt better to tune out everything but a pretty girl.
I took my headphones off when it seemed like she was trying to say something,
Which turned out to be whether I wanted to eat dinner with her.
I wasn’t really in a mood to eat,
But I figured I could use a walk before class,
So I said OK and walked with her to the cafeteria.
It turned out to be a good decision,
Because on the way,
It felt nice to see students’ eyes travel from her to me then from me to her.
At the cafeteria,
I really didn’t feel like eating,
But I didn’t want her to eat alone.
So I remember buying some snack and chatting about this and that when suddenly,
I decided to tell her what had happened that day.
I told her that the day before,
I had decided to attend a career fair where I spent two hours talking to major law firms,
And that I had received an email from a partner a few hours before I saw her.
She asked why that was a bad thing when I told her that instead of wanting to recruit me,
The partner’s email told me I had a major typo in my resume and that there was only one “r” in “Georgetown” instead of two.
Although typos are bad on any resume,
Our career office says they’re even worse for us because lawyers are supposed to be good with details,
And when I realized I had spent two hours handing out my resume that said “GEORRGETOWN” to many major international law firms,
I wanted to do nothing but sit somewhere with my favorite Beats on and try to forget everything.
The thing is,
I forgot what she said to make me feel better after I told her all of that.
It turns out I forgot a lot after seeing her,
Because not only did I forget about my resume,
I later realized that I even forgot to pick up my Beats from where we were sitting before dinner.
When I went back to that spot the next day,
They were gone,
But I remember not even caring because I remembered her.
I guess all I’m trying to say is that life is short,
So if you happen to meet a someone like her,
Shouldn’t you be nice to her?
Shouldn’t you not have to play games with her,
Like waiting a while to text her back and acting like you had something better to do when in reality,
You were waiting all day for her to text you?
But like I said,
It seems like that’s not the case,
And because I also want to focus in my last possible year of school,
This will probably be my last post.
I guess you should never say never,
Because just maybe,
I’ll meet someone for whom I’ll risk writing again.
So I guess until then,
This is the end,
