Well, tonight marks my last exam for the spring semester. Counting summers, I have 8 down and three to go. I will have 20 days of sweet freedom after this semester, before summer school starts, and I am looking forward to it.
Tonight is Family Law. Now, I have plenty of experience in this arena because I have kids, have been married, have been divorced, and know people who have done all three and had custody/alimony issues to boot. So, I am not nearly as worried about this one as I would be had none of this ever happened to me or had I been 24 or such without life experiences to guide me.
The teacher has been great. I just don’t like the subject matter too much. It’s so dramatic – families in crisis, people mad at one another, children in the middle. It just seems that there are so many people who have these issues, and I think that dealing with them would be very trying. More so even than my present job is trying on a daily basis!
So, I’m ready to kick butt and take names on this one and be done for a while. Over the summer, I’ll be taking the legal ethics class (yes, for those lawyer-haters we have to take ethics), and a class on real property transactions. Neither, I hope, will be too taxing on my poor overloaded brain. I think some folks probably think I’m nuts for taking summer school while moving people into this building, but I’m doing it anyway. I need something to keep me grounded while I am trying not to pull my hair out at work.
