chris vs. the arctic

chris: 72 // the arctic: 47



It just hit me like that (*snap*)! After spending a whole Saturday morning lounging and thinking about what I want to do with my life, I figured it out! I want to be a lawyer!

Here are my reasons:

1) I want to help people.
2) I don't want to continue in my current field (science) in a direct way.
3) I like working with people.
4) I have a pretty sound knowledge of the political and financial workings of Canada.
5) I want a comfortable lifestyle.
6) I want to be challenged.
7) I can work under pressure.
8) I gravitate towards leadership roles.
9) Lawyers can work in many fields.
10) I can live anywhere.
11) I have opinions and I like expressing them.
12) I like writing essays.
13) I have a diverse background of knowledge: science, finance, government, teaching, international experience, leadership experience, etc.
14) I get to wear stylish clothes all the time.
15) I pay attention to the details.

I've already ordered my LSAT prep book, and now I'm looking into taking the test in Japan. I'm also going to start compiling the data on the schools in Canada and the requirements needed. This is great!

Wow, a lawyer, eh? I've gotta say, it sounds more likely than the plan when you were going to be a wildlife biologist because "caribou are just like cows"... I think you'd be a great lawyer! You like rules, and you like order, and you like good suits... any thoughts on what kind of law you'd like to go into??

I liked the nurse idea as well, but this is conspicuously lacking the bum-wiping!! maybe a little ass-kissing...
You'd be a great lawyer. stylish and determined :)

I never knew your list was so long! Last you mentioned it to me you were gonna be a businessman. An Arctic Biologist?!?! Thats news to me! I would have laughed my ass off if you told me that! But not to your face - Im not like that. I would fully support your decision to you but then make fun of you behind your back. You know me, Im classy that way ;p
And as for your last comment, I will always be better than you - at least if you are a lawyer I will acknowledge you in public! ;)
