It’s interview week at Georgetown Law,
And before meeting a prestigious firm this morning,
I was nervous.
I wish I were more composed,
But in a way,
I was glad to be nervous because it meant I cared about my performance.
I was nervous,
And when the interviewer asked me,
“How has law school changed you?”
I said the first thing that came to mind, which was,
“It’s made me look for the girl of my dreams.”
I don’t know if that’s the answer he was looking for, (probably not),
But it was the truth,
And I regret that I didn’t express what I really meant,
Which was that although I’ve always looked for my dream girl,
Law school changed her definition for the better forever.
I used to think it’d be nice to just be with a beautiful girl,
But after a year at Georgetown Law,
I realized it’s much nicer to have someone to talk to,
Someone who knows what you’re going through,
And someone who’ll tell you everything will be OK even when it won’t.
Like this summer,
I was talking to this girl,
And by talking,
I mean exactly that because we were in different cities physically.
I didn’t even have any expectations when we started.
I was bored from playing Playstation so I texted her.
I don’t know why I suddenly did because I hadn’t talked to her in a while,
But I remembered that the last time I did,
She was fun to talk to.
In any event,
I said something and wrote “haha” at the end,
She said something with “haha” back,
And before I knew it,
She was driving me beautifully crazy.
I don’t know how she did it,
Because I really don’t talk to a lot of people,
Let alone talk to them about my hopes, fears, and insecurities,
But I’d text her at night before I fell sleep and hope that she’d reply before I woke up,
And if she did,
I was happy.
I was happier to see a text from her than if I had actually been talking to a girl.
Like one Saturday night,
I was at this party where I was actually talking to a pretty girl.
There was a spark and I thought it might turn into something more,
Until I looked at my phone and saw that this girl texted me back.
I didn’t think she would because my last text was the day before,
But when I saw that she did,
I neither cared about the pretty girl nor the party anymore.
I was just thinking about what to say to her the next day,
How to say it,
And the last thing I remember about that night is falling asleep hoping that whatever I did end up saying,
She would keep the conversation going.
That’s what I really meant to say in my interview today when I said,
"Law school has made me look for the girl of my dreams."
The funny thing is, though,
Before I left,
The interviewer smiled and said,
"I hope you find her"
And I hope I find her too.
Hopefully tomorrow, though,
I won't be so nervous during my interviews...
