Thoughts on the Future
What should I do with myself? I've harbored thoughts of going into academia since graduating from college. But why? People are often imprisoned by the things they know. People only recognize certain options as valid, so they make choices from the relatively limited menu of options they see, rather than recognizing that there is a multitude of occupations and endeavors in the world. The unknown is far larger than the known. I've known that and thought that for a long while. Is it possible that I've falled victim to it, myself? I'm currently taking a class at the Law School as part of my CIR Masters program. It's really opened my eyes to what law school and the practice of law amount to. Why have I never really seriously considered it? I'm baffled.
