Too Much Time

What She Wore:  Blue Jean capris (what else?); peach, scoop-neck tee, beaded gold flip flops. 

Last night I couldn’t sleep, and somehow, I ended up on Myspace for about a million hours.  Seeing all those people whose names I can’t remember really got me thinking.  Thinking about my Catholic high school at 1 am is a dangerous thing.  Here’s what I came up with:
Why are so many people that I know lawyers? 
I must be the only person I know who hasn’t been to Grad school–well, I’ve been, but finished?  Nope.
We all looked like crap in high school.  I think we knew that, but there were no boys around, so nobody cared. 
That girl you thought was a lesbian?  She is.
That girl you never thought was a lesbian?  Her too. 
Everyone I have ever known likes the Shop-a-holic books–and I haven’t read one of them. 
The girls I barely talked to in high school seem to be the most interesting now–not that it isn’t totally great that ole-so-and-so is a doctor/lawyer/pharmacist and has a nice house and a baby, but the intesting ones are the ones who moved to France, profess a great love of Literature, or write their own music.  Everyone else’s lives look boring compared to those.
Who the hell wants to be a lawyer anyway?

In one summer I had a baby who was hospitalized for five weeks, quit my job, and moved back to my hometown. This blog is about starting over.

    I just wanted to give you a quick shout out.  I’m still trying to catch up with everything.  I’ll come by again later.

    If it makes you feel any better, I haven\’t read any of the Shopaholic books either.

    I just have to say that I don\’t even know what the Shopaholic books are.
    Looking at myspace and/or facebook and seeing what my old classmates are up to really makes me feel like a bore-fest! It\’s a little depressing.
    I definitely don\’t want to be a lawyer…it\’s enough responsibility being a legal secretary!

    This is how "out of the loop" I am – I did not realize until about 3 weeks ago that you could look up people on myspace by your graduation year.  Once I found that out, I spent a gazillion hours on there.  It\’s a little addictive, isn\’t it?  I found out a LOT of interesting information, some of which I wish I hadn\’t.  And by the way, I love the shop-a-holic books too :)God bless 🙂

    *cough* I took the LSAT. Did rather well, actually. But decided I didn\’t want to fall into that deep dark well of anonymity. Jumped over that and the MBA pit. Thank GOOOOOOOOOOOOODness. I mean, really, who the hell wants to be a lawyer anyway? 🙂

    I just caught up with a whole bunch of "old" friends on Facebook and I found the same. So many people are traveling all over and have all kinds of fancy jobs and things like that. It\’s strange. I don\’t know about you, but I still don\’t feel like an adult, so it\’s weird, I have a few friends that are lawyers now too. I don\’t know it\’s weird. And, I definitely would never have any desire to be a lawyer!

    Funny…because I always wonder, how does my current situation (married stay-at-home mom in oklahoma, a house, a station wagon and 2.5 kids) sound to people I used to know? The story of how I got here is anything but boring! And where I hope my life will go is even cooler than that! Am I just deluding myself? My space on myspace seems pretty boring when I think about it. And I have never even heard of the Shopaholic books. Oh well.

    Great post…cracked me up!  Girl I love to read, but I\’ve never read those shop-a-holics either.  Don\’t feel bad!  LOL
