I adore all things citrus, and at the farmer’s market this weekend, I saw a citrus fruit that I had never tried: the pomelo, which is a huge fruit with a beautiful light green rind.
I cut into one for breakfast this morning. The flesh was rosy pink and reminiscent of grapefruit without the bitterness.
I am seeing green both literally and metaphorically today. I love reading other food blogs, and it seems that quite a lot of the people who write them have gone through some switch in career plans. Kath and Heather are obvious examples, and just today Angela and Jenna were talking about exciting new directions their careers are taking. I know they have all gone through a lot to get where they are, and I am genuinely happy for all of them. And I am jealous. Because I feel stuck.
While I love many things about it, law school as a whole has not been a fun experience for me. I feel drained and unfulfilled. I am unhappy. I had several wonderful months during my spring externship and summer internships, so I know that there are places in the legal world where I can use my skills and be happy. But right now, I am just so fed up with where I am and I wish I knew when I would get a break.
On a more uplifting note, this blog has given me a creative outlet and something to do that actually felt meaningful to me at some times when I was feeling pretty dry. So thank you all for reading. I mean that.
