So, as my internship is drawing to a close (exactly one week from tomorrow, praise the Lord), I thought it would be interesting to draw some conclusions from what I've learned.
First, working and maintaining a healthy marriage is a bit difficult. I have been going into work at 6:00 am so as to be home when the girls wake up from naps. However, I have to go to bed by 8:30, 9 at the latest. And the wonderful Erik is a night person. Oh boy. Not easy. Thankfully, it's almost over and we can have the nights back together.
Secondly, balancing the girls needs with my exhaustion has been tough. I try and give them what I have left in the afternoons, which makes me awful tired by about 8:00 pm. (You can see the conflict.) Thankfully, I found something that gives me energy and allows them to participate. I have been doing Yoga in the afternoons after work and the girls do it with me. I'm pepped up after my workout, and the girls have a ball doing all the poses with me. It's pretty cute.
Third, being a SAHM kind of rocks. I didn't know it when I had it. Oh, praise Jesus that I can go back to it. Halla!
Fourth, traffic and sky-high gas prices seriously dent my meager pay check. Very happy to not have those regular expenses soon.
I do want you know that I have loved working in a personal injury firm this summer. I used to think PI was just out to get the most money, which they are, but also, they do help a lot of people. I can understand why people need PI lawyers, and why lawyers go into PI. It's not super glam, but it's a steady paycheck. And the clients are usually quite happy. So, win-win, if you ask me. And although I did not do well on the LSAT this time, I did really love the industry. So, we'll see what God has planned.
