I learned yesterday that a friend from high school committed suicide. Of course, everyone is left wondering why? This person had an amazing personality and looks to kill...a whole life ahead, cut way too short. Since learning of this tragedy, I’ve been thinking a lot about my own life. Anyone can be taken from us in the blink of an eye, yet I’m continuously “too busy” for pretty much everyone and everything in my life. Law school consumes me. I know I would have regrets if something were to happen to someone I care about, but I have no remedy. If I want to succeed, I have to allow law school to consume me. I’d like to work out a better balance, but law school already seems a little neglected most days…how am I supposed to find more time away from it?

You’ll hear on a daily basis, “it’ll be worth it in the end.” What if it’s not? Will it be worth it if I have no one to enjoy it with when “the end” comes? All of this being said, I know I can’t change. Law school is who I am, it’s what I do…and even though when tragedy strikes I question myself, I know I’m doing what I was born to do.
