Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
Where did you read my story?
Pulled from the papers
Desperate and hardened
seeking a moment every fix

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
Its all my fault now
A Tradegy I fear

Angel of Mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of Mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you

— One Republic

Roger Federer just won his fifth US Open championship. Fifth straight. He has 13 grandslams to date, 1 behind Pete Sampras, who holds the most grandslams by any male tennis player.  Before he won, many people had writtem his career off and that he was done for already. Then he won this. Wow. When he was interviewed, he said that he could not imagine himself not playing tennis. He lives and breathes tennis. Wow. Talk about dedication.

Yesterday, I was listening to a friend talk about his plans after law school. Litigation was out the window and he wanted to travel and be in Europe. He wants to practice IP and if possible do it outside the country.

It got me thinking about my plans. I just stopped dreaming for the past months or so. I had my dreams and plans all planned out a few months ago, then they do not look as great as before.

If Federer lives and breathes tennis, I am not sure I live and breathe practicing the law. Well I used to think that. Then OLA and litigation came along. What a mental fart that is. I love waiting, because I have a lot of time to imagine and day dream, but I sure do not like making a career out of wainting for judges and administrative boards to arrive at any time they please.

I love research. Figuring something out and knowing the answer. I love searching for answers and trying to figure out the best way to approach something. But I do nor know how I can make a career out of that. There may be jobs out there like that, but is that what I will do until I am 50?

I am passionate for education. I am glad my thesis ended up with the topics that I like. ICT Law and Education. I would love to teach someday.

I want to seriously go to Africa. Even live there. Anywhere there. There is something about that continent that just tells me that I should be there, and do something.

So after I take the bar, what do I plan to do? I do not know. I sure hope investing in the things that I do know will pay off. I hope so.

I hope that someday I can say that I live and breathe what I do, and that there is nothing else in the world that I can think of that I will do except that. I am getting there. i just hope I do not kill my own dreams in the process.
