Is Patience Still Waiting?

So, I know I haven't given any law school updates, and I've got a few thoughts on this subject, so here it goes.I heard back from five schools pretty rapidly. Three yeses, one no, and one no that initially seemed like a yes (that one was so terribly confusing.) Then came the waiting for the last four schools. My mom sent me one letter that should get here today or tomorrow, and I have a feeling the answer from them is going to be no. Then, today, I received an email from BYU saying..........
I'd been wait listed.
Its funny because I never really intended to go to BYU, I didn't really even want to think about it. I knew I had come back to Provo, and that that has really been such a good decision, but I recognized that I cling to things that I really ought to let go of. So, BYU would not be any place I would want to be any longer. Over the last month however I began wondering, "what if BYU is the best school you get into? You're not going to go to a lower ranked s…

Or maybe I just think that because my boss is from LA.) Besides how many states give you this, and this all in one convenient location? And don't forget about all of these places as well: Prescott Sonoran Desert Grand Canyon (yeah, does your state have a natural wonder? I didn't think so.) Plain Awesomeness Plus, Arizona's state flag looks better tha…

The Words Fill My Head, and Fall to the Floor

With God on Our Side- Straylight Run

In this moment it seems especially fitting that I copy Heidi's Pay it Forward post. I came into work today to find out that one of the men I work with lost his daughter on Friday in an accidental shooting. I didn't know the girl, and I really hardly know the man, but my heart aches for this family that is struggling to comprehend the world they have suddenly been shoved mercilessly into. I've been thinking a lot lately that the private war we fight in this country is in protecting and caring for all of the children that live here. There are some children that are loved and cared for that have good parents, like myself, and this girl, and probably all of you that read this blog. There are others who do not.  I think that is the crisis we should focus on, protecting others, helping others, from the very beginning, everyone should be able to grow up in a home where they feel loved and safe, and good parents shouldn't have to worry so muc…
