It's the second thing; I had already invested too much time and money to simply give up when I finally understood that I'm not cut for that profession at all. I lack all the ingredients a good lawyer must have. I'd be a terrible, terrible lawyer, a horrible prosecutor or a sad excuse for a judge.
But no worries, world, I won't ever try. :)(less)

It's Always the Husband by Michele Campbell
"A thriller overstuffed with stock characters and truly abysmal writing. The dialogue is agonizing to read at times, and each character can be reduced to a 2-3 word stereotype. Though it seemed to be attempting to portray complex, interpersonal rel..." Read more of this review »

What a disappointment... This started well enough--not amazing, but promising. Then it became a bit boring and predictable, with the characters showing no growing at all and acting like teens even when fully grown. I couldn't get interested in any of ...more

Stephen King
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
Stephen King

Yvvette Edwards
“My relationship had ended and Red had taken my son. My life was my own and I could do anything I wanted, yet I felt nothing. As I stood staring at the walls, searching inside myself for some kind of emotional response, the nothingness suddenly welled up inside me, like a physical mass, so vast and empty and infinite I was terrified. The very first time I went running, it was from that terror, from the possibility of being sucked down into emptiness for ever, and as I ran I discovered I was able to feel; pressure in my lungs, pain in my legs, my skin perspiring, the pounding of my heart.
My routine was erratic, I ran when I felt like it, usually five or six times a month. So was my style. It was nothing like that of the runners I grew accustomed to seeing, the ones who regulated themselves, jogged two or three times a week, who did a warm-up first and stretching exercises afterwards, the people for whom the activity was a hobby. I ran like my life depended on it, as fast and as hard as I could. Sometimes, passers-by would look beyond me as I ran towards them, with fear in their eyes, trying to see who or what was pursuing me, trying to work out whether they should be running too. As long as I was feeling, I didn’t care.”
Yvvette Edwards, A Cupboard Full of Coats
