Day 88 of 100 Days of Blogging, What is the Dominant Emotion in my Life?

Hello, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from the Self-Reflection category and the card asks, “What is the dominant emotion in your life right now? How can you use this emotion to improve your life?”

I have to say that right now the dominant emotion in my life right now is anxiety. I have the bar exam coming up as of this writing and it’s probably the most important test of my life.

I guess the way I could use this anxiety to improve my life is to make sure that I study enough to alleviate the anxiety that I wind up being prepared for the test and I can pass the test.

So there we go, the dominant emotion in my life right now and how I can use it.

Day 87 of 100 Days of Blogging, How Could I Add to My Relationships?

Good morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from the Love and Relationships category and the card asks, “How could you add value to your relationships?”

This is interesting because I think the best people to answer the question would be the other people in those relationships as they would be the ones who would best be able to say what I could do to add value to that relationship.

But what I can say is that I could make sure that I keep in touch with people and make sure that the relationship lasts, especially in this day and age where a lot of the ways that people interact with each other are closed and not able to be used.

I could also make sure I know where the relationship stands as well, so that way I know where and when I can add the most value.

So there we go, how I could add value to my relationships.

Day 86 of 100 Days of Blogging, What’s the Best Job I’ve Ever Had?

Good morning and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s topic comes to us from the Education and Career category, and the card says, “Write about the best job you’ve ever had.”

Well, I’d have to say that would be the job I had before going into the Legal field, namely being a Barnes and Noble bookseller. That job was a great one because of my coworkers there.

I had some amazing coworkers while I was working at Barnes and Noble and whenever one would leave was almost always a bit of a sad time. They were really supportive especially when I would talk about my time at law school.

I also really liked helping people find things that they were looking for while I was there. It was great to be able to take them directly to what they needed. It was also great to be able to take them to a book that I would recommend for them and have them pick it up and purchase it because I knew they would like it.

So there we go, so far that is the best job I’ve had.

Day 85 of 100 Days of Blogging, What Does My Perfect Day Look Like?

Hello, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from the Life category, and the card asks, “What does you perfect day look like?”

I’m going to assume that in this “perfect day” I’m doing my dream job or money is otherwise no object.

Well, for me, the perfect day starts out with either a full workout or a walk around my neighborhood, and then flows into my morning hygiene routine. After that, I have breakfast with a cup of tea, with honey depending on what type of tea I’m having, and then I do some writing. Whether or not that would be for the blog or for a book that I’m writing to be published doesn’t matter, I’m doing some writing.

After lunch, I would probably do some reading as the best writers are also voracious readers and I want to get back to my reading habits that I had before law school at some point. I would also get some writing done if I had an idea come to me.

In the evening would be dinner and television or movie watching and news catch up from throughout the day.

So there we go, if money were no object this would be my perfect day.

Day 84 of 100 Days of Blogging, What Do I Think the World Needs to Know?

Good morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from World category, and the card asks, “What does the world need to know right now?”

Well, this isn’t a pretentious question at all now is it? Either way, I guess I “need” to share what I think the world needs to know right now.

What the world needs to know is that we all need to be kind to each other. That would be ultimately what would change the most things in the world. If people were kinder we wouldn’t have the issues that we have today.

Kindness, true kindness, would solve most issues because people would not have the need to try to make themselves better than other people, and we wouldn’t have the need to play high score with money.

Kindness, and seeing everyone as a people rather than “the other” or things to be exploited for profit, would make the world a much better place.

So there we go.

Day 83 of 100 Days of Blogging, What Does Someone Else Have that I Envy?

Hello, and welcome back ton 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from the random category, and the card says, “What does someone else have that you envy? Describe the situation and your feelings about it.”

Well, this isn’t a serious question at all now is it? And this is another question where the answer is a lot simpler than I guess it would be for a lot of people. Because really, the only thing I’m envious of is the people who are settled into their careers and have steady paychecks and stuff like that.

I realize that that’s coming for me, once I get through the bar exam and pass it. But it would be nice to at least be at a place where I know what to expect work wise every day, even if the expectation is “Some weird shit because being a lawyer is never that simple.” but it would still be nice to have that for myself.

Otherwise I try not to let myself get envious of people and stuff like that.

Day 82 of 100 Days of Blogging, When Was the Last Time I Misjudged a Situation?

Good morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s topic comes to us from the Self-Reflection category and the card says, “Describe the last time you misjudged a situation and what you learned from it.”

Well, that would be my last job. I’m not going to name names, but when I took the job I was under the impression that it was a lot different than what it turned out to be. I thought it was going to be more of a legal research type of job, and it turned out to be a receptionist job.

The situation with my immediate boss was also misjudged as they seemed nice at the time of the interview and at the beginning of my time working there, but eventually they wound up showing themselves as someone that can go from being nice and sweet to you one day, to the meanest person in the world.

What I did learn from this situation is a combination of the type of boss that I don’t want to be when I become a lawyer on my own. It also taught me what type of law I don’t want to go into for my career. The type of law I was working in is thankless drudgery where the opposition had most of the power in the situation and our clients were almost powerless to get what they needed.

So that was the last situation that I misjudged and what I learned from it.

Day 81 of 100 Days of Blogging, What Does Love Mean to Me?

Good Morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s topic comes to us from my brain, because the question from the card involved something I didn’t want to talk about so instead I’m going to make up a topic from the card category which was Love and Relationships, so I’m going to talk about what Love means to me.

Why do I feel like I can pontificate on this given that I’ve been unlucky in the dating department? Because this is my blog and I get to write about what I want. Go make your own blog if you have strong opinions about it. They’re free from WordPress.

Anyway, for me, love isn’t just romantic love, and even then, romantic love isn’t a feeling. It’s work. Love is the work that you put into a relationship to make it last and to keep it going. When it comes down to it, ultimately, love is the work to make the relationship one worth pursuing.

And that’s for any relationship, whether it’s a platonic friendship, or a romantic long term relationship. It takes work, and sometimes, it takes more work than anyone wants to do.

Day 80 of 100 Days of Blogging, What Do People Say I Can’t Do?

Good morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s topic comes to us from the Education and Career category, and the card says, “What do people say you can’t do?”

Interesting question, mainly because I don’t always know what people say about me, but there was one instance where a former boss of mine told me that I didn’t have what was needed in order to be a prosecutor. She said that I didn’t have the fire and push needed to be a prosecutor. She also said that I didn’t have the business skills needed to be a private defense attorney.

But I’m just complaining about a former boss, which isn’t the best thing to do, least of all because it’s not smart to dwell on the past like that.

Anyway, I don’t usually think what people say I can’t do because I’m not there we they say it I think. At least, most people don’t do it to my face so I don’t think about it. It’s not some high and mighty idea of not thinking about it, it’s more that I just don’t know about it.

Either way, that’s what I have to say about that.

Day 79 of 100 Days of Blogging, What is Keeping Me Up at Knight?

Good morning and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from the Life category and the car asks, “What is keeping you up at night?”

Well, I guess we can just look around at the world right now you know? There’s rising fascism in America with unmarked federal agents making people disappear in Portland, with promises of it happening in other major U.S. cities, there’s a massive pandemic that the Federal government in the United States is refusing to do anything about besides going, “What if we just, let poor people die?”

And on top of all of that, there’s the bar exam happening in October! A stressful enough time as it is, but with everything else on top of that it’s just a massive ball of stress and adrenaline. The fear of failing the bar exam is what keeps me up at night the most if we’re being honest, and it’s probably the most stressful thing in my life.

So there we go, the things that are keeping me up at night.
