Choose pain

“You must choose between pain or drudgery.” – Douglas Coupland (from Girlfriend in a Coma, I think)

Caught an episode of Grey's Anatomy where one of the residents (the one who's a former model) had to break up with her boyfriend because he couldn’t accept that he would always be second to her job. She tells him regretfully but firmly, “Sorry, this is my life now.” Something I wish I could say to some of my own friends sometimes. Not all of them understand why I'm taking up law studies this late, with conditions being far from ideal. The answer is, because I choose to.

The biggest failure

“Even the biggest failure, even the worst, intractable mistake, beats the hell out of never trying.” – from Grey’s Anatomy (my new favorite tv series now that House is on season break at AXN)

You can see from my choice of quotations that I didn’t do too well in my midterms, or one of them at least (not all results have been released). So frustrating ‘cause I could have done so much better, I know. [Sigh!] But I’m not fazed. Bawi na lang sa finals, as usual.

I should change the title of this blog to Sleeping Beauty. Only, unlike the princess in the fairy tale, I don't want to be rescued! What I would give to be locked up in a tower with nothing to do but sleep, long hours of blissful sleep... And instead of a prince charming I would settle for a new job. In a perfect world I would wake up to find I've been hired for a job that would (1) let me work from home or not come in everyday, (2) pay well (fairy tale nga e!) and (3) still be fun, possibly related to writing or legal research. There MUST be a better way to make a living out there, I just need to find it. Or it needs to find me!
