However, I will now break my blogging silence with some less than stellar news. I was hoping to blog next about something happy. Usually blogging posts seem to go best with pictures. Under the circumstances, I hope you'll be ok with a picture-less post...
I have been anxiously waiting my L-SAT score. (that's the test to get into Law School if you weren't all over that acronym.) I missed my opportunity to take the L-SAT last June, deferred on receiving my score in October since I felt I didn't do my best, and now on my third L-SAT opportunity I scored low enough to pretty much close the door on this chapter of my life in trying to find my life's work through the Law.
Needless to say, I'm extremely upset and trying not to let it overtake me. However and despite that, I still have a spectacular wife and two darling little girls who love and depend on me. I also have a job at a residential treatment center for troubled teens that while meaningful in its work is still meager in its pay. However, until I figure out the next step, my wife, my family and my job are still very important so the immediate next step is to pull my head out of my...behind.
Thanks for reading. I know especially for family on both sides that this isn't exactly pleasant or welcome news. I hope you'll forgive my method of delivery to inform you of this. I'm a little too disappointed in myself right now to hear the disappointment and/or awkward pause in anyone's voice on the phone or what have you when no one knows what to say about something like this.
I appreciate all of your support for me and my family and your patience with me over the years and now while I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. May the growing up happen very soon because the delay and growing pains have been just that...painful.
