Trust Me, I’m a Lawyer

Today I recieved two different life-changing news/announcements within one hour from eachother. I was shopping at the outlets in San Marcos, TX when I found out which country we’re being sent tonext. He did, and as much as I’d love to share it with you, I still can’t. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to announce where we are going on here until we get there. It is somewhere much, much, much further away that I ever thought. The place we are going now has a completely different language and culture. It is way out of my comfort zone, which in a way I am happy about.
Then, about an hour later I recieved a notification on my phone that a friend of mine posted that she saw my name on the list, and congrats. “The list?” I thought. At first I had no idea what she was talking about. I thought maybe she was having a girl and my name was on the potential list of names. And then it clicked. The results from the Texas Bar Exam were supposed to be relased tomorrow. THAT list.
I passed the bar exam.
Even writing that sentence sends a wave of emotions crashing over me. I can’t believe I did it. I finally have something to show for the countless hours spent studying while simultaniously taking care of a newborn. I have something to show for three years of working my ass off in law school.
I can finally say,
“I’m a lawyer.”
