I have been working full-time lately. At my dad’s firm as a paralegal, so I took the cop-out easy path to finding a job. To be honest though, many other paralegal positions I was searching for, especially with bigger firms in NYC, expect or desire at least a two-year commitment. Because I plan on attending law school full-time beginning in August, I do not want to imply such commitment. That cuts out like 99% of the other jobs that would be available.
Over here, commuting to and from work is easy (Just get a ride with my dad), the hours are flexible (If I want to meet up with friends in NYC this Thursday, I totally can), and I’m getting paid. I am also genuinely learning about various aspects of Immigration Law in the process. So this is all good!
But what I’m also feeling is that my creative side is sort of falling asleep. Hibernating, if you will. I’m so tired when I get home I usually grab some dinner, catch up on the Interwebz, and then after Skyping or being on the phone for a while, it’s time for bed. Sometimes, I skip the procrastination on FB and catch up on my TV shows instead.
Either way, it feels dull and boring and repetitive and I further doubt if I want to do this for the rest of my life or not. Sure as a lawyer I’ll get paid more and get the chance to head out of the office for Court dates and such, but largely, life will remain the same grueling routine of work – eat – sleep – shower – repeat
I need to partner with somebody so we can both commit to writing regularly once more. I’m slipping you guys, I’m slipping. I’m not blogging and I’m not writing and I’m not graphic design’ing and those are all supposed to be core parts of me!
