Law school classes ended at the end of May, and my mediation class began the beginning of June and lasted two weeks. It was amazing. I had so much fun...it was just a wonderful reassurance that yes, this is what God wants me doing.
To that end, I have been applying to volunteer at various mediation centers, though have not yet heard back from any. Pray they contact me? I would like to start this as soon as possible...I'm awfully excited about it!
At the same time, I need money from somewhere. I've decided my dream career would be copyediting/proofreading, with mediation whenever I'm free. I've applied at magazines and newspapers, but am finding that most places use only one copyeditor, and already have the position filled. How disappointing! I won't give up though. I'm confident something will show up, or God will direct me elsewhere.
So, what happens this fall? What about school?
I came to a point recently where I could honestly say I wanted to do what God wanted me to, and if He wanted me back in school I would happily go. I didn't get a sign He did--in fact I got quite the opposite. I truly feel I am done. I don't know why He had me go this year, but He did, and perhaps someday it will make sense.
For now I'm content to move forward, find mediating and/or editing jobs, and enjoy a life free of homework, tests, and all things legal...and filled with the love of friends and family. Oh people, how I've missed spending time with you!
