You can always go home......

My time in Atlanta involved chasing the thrill of discovering something new. Wanting to become the “black” Carrie Bradshaw (without the debt and men problems of course) or Joan (again without the men problems) from “Girlfriends”. So what have I discovered?
  • That I could actually live on my own in Atlanta and make it
  • That it is okay to be different.

  • That it is okay to be home sick. It does not make you weak.

  • That I was still unsatisfied.

  • That even though I was living in the city, I was nowhere close to the “city girl” fantasy I believe I should be living.

  • That I was “NOT” living life PERIOD!

  • That it is okay to go home again.

Which is what I did, I am now back living in Louisiana.

Now do not get me wrong, I love and miss Atlanta so much, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do in order to do what you want to do. At first when I arrived back into Louisiana, I took it as a failure, but I soon came to realize that it was all in my mind. However anything I do I will associate it as a failure because I am not doing what I wanted or should be doing by now (practicing law). Even though I am considered moving back home as a failure of some sort, failing is not the end of the world, but simply means you have a lesson to learn.

There is ONE positive aspect to moving back to Louisiana:


That is right folks, after SIX LONG YEARS, I am finally getting a second chance at a dream/goal.

Which is why with great sadness, I will no longer blog at “My Quarter Life Crisis”. For some reason I felt I kept taking this blog in the wrong direction. Maybe it was because I had no direction in life because I kept trying to get something back from my past. I could never move forward.

However I have chose to create a new blog, specifically one detailing my journey in law school. I will call it:


I will write about many topics, but not all will be legal/law school related. However everything will tie into my life and my legal journey. Things that contribute to my sanity. My main goal is to NOT have this blog me a “boo-hoo, poor me”. Just a place to document my growth and enlightenment.

So come and join me, this “second time around”. (Corny I know – LOL)
