Just this and one more week and I’ll be finished my first year of law school. Never really thought I’d write that. But, then I never much thought I’d write a lot of things.
The hardest part has been the fact that I’m surrounded by twenty -something year old rich kids. That is who goes to law school. Rich kids in their twenties.
Me? Not so rich. Almost 40.
What do I hate about them? Where do I start… It’s the sneering sense of entitlement. The fancy cars that cost far more than my wife’s far and mine combined. And far more than a 23 year old could hope to afford. It was purchased for him (or, as the case often is, her). Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Lexis. Me? Ten year old Oldsmobile with 120 thousand on it.
American, baby. I’ve got nothing to prove.
They have a collective world view that I do not pretend to understand. Four grand to golf is reasonable? Dad flying into Phoenix on his private jet to take you do dinner? Flying to L.A. on a “day trip to shop for shoes”?
Another things that is slowly killing me is the incessant homophobia. There is a clear negative view by at least half my “peers” regarding denying rights to homosexuals. Marginalized because they deserve it? They brought this on themselves? Gay is a choice? Not around your children? Do you even have any children?
Enough. Back to studying. Kill me.by
