Hey, blog friends!
If you read my blog a few weeks ago, you might’ve seen this sad entry about big life decisions that had come my way.
Since last May, I have been going to law school at night after working the 830a-5p jobby job in pursuit of fulfilling my childhood dream of becoming a HOTSHOT LAWYA.
After a lot of time thinking, talking, lists of pros/cons – Mr.DJW and I decided that after this term (my third) is over, I will be dropping out of law school and starting business school to obtain my MBA in the fall. (SUMMER VACATION! WOOT! WOOT!)
It took a lot of effort on my part to weigh out the pros / cons of each option and also considering the reality of the job market and future of the economy in Detroit/Michigan. We also took into consideration our future family plans, my work/life/school balance, and other important factors.
It took me a couple of weeks to make my final decision, but since I have made it, I cannot be a happier person.
It makes sense for so many reasons and puts our life on the track we want it to be, both for myself professionally and us as a family unit.
With the overwhelming support of both sets of parents, my brother, and my close friends, we are so excited for the next few years of our life together and all that it has to offer us and more.
The most exciting part, aside from economic/career/etc. reasons, is that Mr.DJW and I will officially TTC (try to conceive) starting in the Fall of 2012 after our 2nd year anniversary. We are thrilled to have a timeline/plan in mind and can’t wait to get the most of the next 1.5 – 2 years as a couple, as we prepare to build our family in the future.
After my last law school final on April 17th, I will have four glorious months of summer just working my 830a-5pm and studying for the GMAT (late May/early June) and applying to four different MBA programs (July). I can use the mental break and I can’t wait to get fired up for business school in September!
Thanks to all of you that listened to me whine, vent, rationalize, and gab your ear off with all this school crap. You guys are my sanity.
