Confessions of a Law School Grad LOOKING FOR A JOB

I am seriously beginning to feel like a machine.  At least in law school I knew that I was working tremendously hard.  I may have hated it, but at least that means I still managed to maintain my feelings and emotions during law school.  I suppose that's a plus.

Who knew that the process of applying for jobs would be the part of my life that would make me feel like I'm losing a small piece of my humanity daily?  Law school sounds so prestigious when people hear about it.  It's EXPECTED (or at least it used to be) that when students graduate from law school, they get jobs somewhat easily.

I spend so much time searching for law firms, trying to find law firms that are actually hiring, perfecting my resume for the 8,000th time, and writing personal cover letters that will likely go unread.  At the beginning, I didn't mind it and I still felt like a human.  However, a few months have passed now and my take on this has dramatically changed.

Unfortunately, the job search pro…

Want to Work in Writing

I just wanted to share with my readers that I am looking to do something more with my creative writing.  I love to write my own work, but something else I am really passionate about is helping people to enhance their writing.  I personally would love to be on a writing team for a television show or movie.   Even though these thoughts are scattered, my main point is that I want to do something real with my writing.  I want to be able to make a career out of it.  I have TONS of experience helping students and entrepreneurs perfect their writing.  I am able to cater to specific needs.  I just need to figure out how to implement this passion of mine into a reality.  If anyone who happens to be reading this has any ideas for me, feel VERY free to leave them in the comments.

PLL: Why Lucas and Noel might be working together as "A" STARTING FROM THE BEGINNING

**This post now includes theories coming from the entire season 1 (Episodes 1-22)! This post is separated into sections according to which episodes I came up with the theories. I know this is VERY long, so I thought that would make it easier.

Edit: PLEASE SEE THE LAST PARAGRAPH IN THE NOTES FROM EPISODE 12***. It is in bold and italics just like the writing here and it's something I just noticed.

BASED ON REWATCHING ALL EPISODES (1-22) OF SEASON 1 WITH THE KNOWLEDGE FROM NEWER EPISODES IN MIND.

**NOEL and LUCAS as “A” theory


Coverage of Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game

I don't know how many of you watch Pretty Little Liars, but that show and The Lying Game are enough to drive anybody insane (in the best way possible). I am going to start posting reviews and theories of both of those shows on my blog so I can share my thoughts with others.

The first thing I'm going to post is my work-in-progress theory on the possibility of Noel and Lucas working together as "A" on Pretty Little Liars. It's a work-in-progress because it is solely based on what I have discovered by rewatching older episodes with the knowledge I have from the newer episodes kept in mind.

Your Game

I know you're wondering if your aim has worsened as you toss knives
at my back to play your game.
Don't you worry: you've stayed the same.
I just haven't lost my life to your attacks because I've changed.
But you were too busy standing here polishing your spears
to keep track of your target
And now you wonder, "where is she?" Wishing I hadn't disappeared
I'd return if I hadn't gotten so far yet.
I bet you didn't even know how fast I could run
Even though you've seen me race before,
You had a blast making fun of my legs
back at the high school track, well now they're out the door.
So I ask you nicely not to beg
for me to turn around and get burned
'Cause now I've learned the rules to your game.
And though you have the tools to render me a fool
you can't force me to play.
I bet you never thought I'd read the instructions
As if your plots and pranks have taught me nothing.
Guess I've shot down some of your e…

The Invisible Teardrop

This is for a good friend of mine who I lost too soon. I just realized I've never posted it anywhere.

The ocean hides the teardrop that you never showed to me
Sometimes I try to visit you by going to the sea
The water seems endless as waves crash to the shore
And separate drops join into one splash and I can't find them anymore
And so I am reminded of how you always hid your tears
Behind forced smiles and claims that you hadn't cried in years.
And so today I dig through the sand continuing my search
I'd give anything to dry that tear that tore you from this Earth.
Your war with this world has come to an end, but you've left so much here with me
And wherever you are, I hope it's peaceful. Peaceful like the sea.

Let Me Save You Part 2 (another poem made with the use of Andrew McMahon titles)

This one's for you... You know who you are.

I was a hostage with a restless dream to wake up and explore
You traveled 'round the globes and maps just to open my locked doors.
You unraveled my racing thoughts, casting lines into my mind
Unlike the people running at full speed, leaving me behind.
You found me as a broken bird who could never watch the sky
You're the astronaut who released me and taught me how to fly
I lived but a little piece of life until you rescued me
I knew nothing of American love 'til you let me see
all the thrills I was deprived of 'til your life with me you shared
You took me dancing with a gun and I wasn't even scared.
You said "I want to save you." Well, your wish has come true
I'm ready for the world now 'cause I can spin through it with you.
