Simple poor mans badminton player steps up...
LAW is FUCKED, I was kind of thinking THE WORLD is FUCKED. Not on some little kid doomsday kick but none of this shit is sustainable. Tipping point issue here folks. Go poke more holes in the core of the earth and then pollute the atmosphere, people continue to breed when they can't feed, it is all an exponential mess. The great thing is after millions of years the universe can maintain balance. I am glad that we are only using X % of our brains, we would have already been wiped out if we were using any more. Hindsight 20-20 style, a little vision goes a long way. Every model is broken, advertising, real estate, banking, construction, farming/agriculture, manufacturing, service industry.
I don't really see all this as being that big of a deal in my lifetime, par for the course. Sure the money was good in all kinds of industries/careers but as we keep pushing down technology road we are minimizing the need for us to "work" on a real level. That is efficiency at work, why do with more what can be done with less. Alas we hit a little stumbling block, shit is moving kind of quick. Capitalism and sustainability don't really hand shake very well. Big money in natural resources, damn those are finite, lets get into credit, no how about banking, hmmm that is a mess, how about technology dot com or die, hmmm that seems tired, what's the next big thing, well we outsourced everything the tech wave didn't last too long... so now we can watch all these other nations swell with a mythological middle class (reality- have nots feeling good about having something), how about sustainability- GREEN JOBS...sounds good. damn there are too many of us, this shit is just unrealistic. Too many overqualified/overeducated people fighting for wages that couldn't even sustain a pet ferret.
We are all doomed, not really. fear not, own your shit, outwork or outsmart every human you come in contact with, if you are incapable of that you can find another way. I believe in you. If do what anyone else does, did or tells you to chances are you aren't applying yourself. Darwinism folks. It isn't going to get any easier, that is truth.
If you want to get into law, get into law. If you are expecting to "get through" and then have something handed to you...well I think you are trippin'. few years ago you could scoot by with a high school diploma, then you need a 2 yr degree, then 4 yr degree, then you needed a masters, now PhD or JD and you still can find work....maybe it has something to do with the education....maybe it is just people in general. If you want to get ahead in life, get ahead. It isn't rocket science.
If you are searching for fulfillment I suggest you go stare in the mirror for about 3 minutes, rip it off the wall and get to work. Life is short.
Feel free to PM some flamin' hate mail. As stated earlier, poor, simple but can def. slap the shuttlecock around a bit.
