smart went crazy
So having missed the OCS deadline once again, and just again realizing that my other option is law schoool. I've got a sort of plan!
Once I graduate I will move back to Austin where I will find a Travis county job, something like court clerk or similar. I will take an LSAT prep course during this time and prepare to take the LSAT. As soon as the dates are posted I will start getting the packet ready.
So by next November I will have the LSAT done, applied for OCS(assuming they don't cancel apps again this fall) and be ready to start applying to law schools. This way, come spring 2012, I will be going in a direction, either OCS or Law school.
From Law school I can still go direct officer commission route and start out even higher, or I can weasel my way into political work.
Finally having some semblance of a plan is nice. So many of my friends are still working in the service industry after graduating, with no plans of doing anything differently. I don't want to fall in to that trap. It's taken me an extra year to graduate (not counting time off) and I feel good knowing that it's not too late.
I've still got some negative influences in my life, but my Uncle has recently took a great interest in me and is encouraging me to be the best I can.
I'm still haunted by that girl who visits my dreams several times a week, I don't think I can do anything about that either way. That's just something I'm going to have to have to live with.
