Well, Boy Genius is officially a genius. Well, maybe not uber genius as in that Marilyn Savant chic or Einstein, but he's in the 98th percentile of kids his age and has been officially placed in "Gifted". He's on top of the world. I'm forever limited to shirts with some stretch so I don't bust a button. From pride. I'm endowed, but not that much. I digress.
So, in my little "pep talk" to him, I stressed that we'd all been given gifts and that one of his was his mind. I told him that he had a responsibility to use his mind to his greatest ability. This got me thinking on my own life, my own potential, my own need to reach.
So I did something definitive (first I went for a 30+ mile ride, which was awesome, but then I did the definitive thing). I registered for the LSAT in June. Yes, I am insane. I've been toying with the idea of law school since shortly after I started working at The Firm. I just haven't done any follow through. And lately the comment "you should go to law school" has been coming up. Repeatedly. So, I decided to follow my own advice and let Spirit lead me where it will. I might bomb the test - which would be definative - or I might not. All I can do is give it my best.
Dang, the things you learn from your kids.
