After so many years, it is finally happening. In a few months I will be married to the love of my life. He has worked so hard to get his attorney degree and has worked so hard to give me the wedding of my dreams by being one of the most known attorney in the city. I have never been as excited about anything else as I am with this big chapter in our lives. Before he proposed he wanted to make sure he was finished with school. We are people who love the good life and love to spend money on whatever we want and like and honestly him being an attorney helps a lot when it comes to expenses because his knowledge and understanding of being an attorney is what pays for our home and living. Unfortunately, it usually takes a few years in practice in order to get the experience and we’re going to have to tighten things up financially.
I am a manager at a health care office but do not get paid as much as he does. We had a budget when we first began planning it, but we have changed our minds so many times when it comes to the beautiful decorations we have seen that now we are literally spending like a celebrity would. He has started up a legal blog which couldn’t hurt, but it really does take up alot of his time. Hopefully it works out in the long run.
You only get married once, so i want this wedding to be the best one my friends and family have seen. I thank god I am marrying an attorney who is very well known by people and also thank god for letting me have a great position at a medical office where i can also work and make decent money, never like my future husband but it’s money and that is what matters.
My husband is planning on getting his own attorney at law office with other attorneys that he knows that are very close to him but for now, our wedding is the only things that we have in our schedule.
When I was a little girl I can remember watching television with my parents and being drawn to the drama and behind-the-scenes activity of the shows centered around a courtroom. During my elementary school years I told anyone who would listen that I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up. During my secondary school years it came to my attention that there were several aspects of law and that I should probably start considering which area I was most interested in. By high school, I was a fanatic reader of murder mysteries and had firmly decided that being a personal injury lawyer was the area I wanted to focus on.
Here I am all these years later and my childhood dream is becoming a reality mixed with the nightmares of financial aid, housing, studying and I’m sure about a million things I haven’t even thought of yet.
Luckily for me I’m a strong goal and detail-oriented type of person, so the first order of business is to make a list of things to do. I love lists because of the satisfaction I get when I cross off a completed item. I’ve already visited the campus and I’m sure that this is the school I want to attend so doing more research on my other acceptance is unnecessary. Check. I need to schedule another campus visit and see if I can sit in on some classes. How fun that will to be to sit in a huge auditorium-style lecture hall with real students! I’ll have to be sure to approach some of them and ask them about what to expect for the practical day-to-day happenings once I’m enrolled.
Next step, definitely look for housing. It’s close enough to where I live now at my parents house for a weekend visit but too far for a daily commute. I’ve been so enamored with the idea of actual law curriculum and long-term goals that I truly haven’t given much thought to where I would live. Alone? With friends? On campus? Renting a room in a house off-campus? I’ll need to check my acceptance letter and financial aid offering to see where a housing budget fits into it all. Minimum GPA requirements? Books?
Geez, I can’t believe this is really happening. I’m so excited yet my brain can’t seem to get out of student mode of thinking and list-making to allow me to jump for joy or celebrate…
I need to call my bestie and go out dancing!
