I’m graduating from law school in a month InshaAllah and it’s such a bittersweet feeling. I really don’t know how I feel. I’m glad to be entering and embracing the next phase of my life but very reluctant and apprehensive at the same time.
I’m excited yet nervous, motivated yet scared and happy yet sad. There are so many things that I want to do but in all reality I know won’t be able to, because my law career would be so demanding that at the end of the day I won’t really have energy to devote else where.
But if you’re like me you can’t be content with having all your eggs in one basket, in my mind I’ve just been trying to figure out how I’m going take things from this point onwards. I really like making content, it feeds my creative side but at the same time I really like working and studying too. It gives my life a lot of structure and balance.
I just hope that I don’t get so sucked in the life of corporate slavery that I forget to do things that spark joy in my soul, because it’s very important to enjoy the “process” of every struggle and be happy while you are at it not just when you’ve made it to the end goal. - 17 minutes ago
