Dreaming

When I wrote my last post for 2006, it really made me realized how much I have to be grateful for. But of course I had dreams and expectations for 2007, and one of them is coming true right now... It feels wonderful and unreal at the same time.
For as long as I can remember, I've been wanting to study law but never thought I would be accepted so I started to make other plans. It felt like life was on hold and I was just waiting to figure out the answer to the question that always pops up when you're talking to new people - "What do you want to do when you grew up?". The thing is, I am grown up and I realized that it's impossible for me to just wait for something to happen. I've studied other subjects, planned on studying abroad and I was thinking about becoming an realtor as well.
Then suddenly, I got a letter from the law departement at my university. And they welcomed me as a new law student... I couldn't believe it, and I still find it hard to believe that I'm actually been accepted.
It's been very confusing and I've been so happy that I've almost cried but at the same time, I started to doubt myself. What if I can't handle all the work? What if I'm not good at this? I've onlt taken an introductional law course, which is very different from studying it for 4,5 years. But I want this so badly and I feel like this is what I'm good at. And this is where I think, and hope, that I can help people more than I could in any other occupation that I've considered.

I'm sorry if I'm rambling, but I'll promise to get it together and start posting about other things as well :-)

Wow, what wonderful news to start your new year Elisabeth!
I can understand why you might feel a little hesitation. It will require hard work and dedication but I think you will do very well at anything that you want to do.
Best wishes!
