Did I Just Waste The Last Five Years of My Life?

By @carrieeve

The time has come for me to retake the entry exam for my legal application. It’s time to dive into the books and re-learn all the useless information I’ve forgotten over the last year because they were—well, useless – which is why they’d flown out of my head in the first place.

Let me give you some back story first, though. Graduating from law school in Poland is just the beginning for us bright-eyed and bushy-tailed young pretenders. We graduate with a pretty diploma, a title and absolutely zero license to work in our chosen profession. For that, we need to get through that application, when someone experienced takes us under their wing and teaches us how to actually use the knowledge we’ve accumulated over the course of our studies. Which is fine, really. More often then not, us lawyers make decisions that directly affect the lives of our clients. It’s not just the judges or prosecutors, but bailiffs, solicitors, notaries. Our signature carries a certain weight behind it which is why I absolutely agree that we need to have as much guidance as possible before we’re certified to practice.

[image description: A series of screenshots from The Clone Wars cgi animated series. They are structured around a quote from Welcome To Nightvale, Episode 34: “Thank you for your interest in a life free of pain. We are not accepting applications at this time. Please try again. And again, and again and again, and again, and again, and again…” The quote is in Star Wars blue font against a black, starry background.

The screenshots positioned under “Thank you for your interest in a life free of pain” depict a series of images depicting happier times. The first shows a scene from Yoda’s vision in season 6, where the Jedi are alive and happy in the Temple: there is no war. The second depicts Anakin and Obi-Wan toasting each other, the second Anakin and Padme cuddling together as they smile, the third Anakin smiling at Ahsoka with pride, and the fourth Ahsoka and Padme embracing each other joyously.

When the quote advises that they “are not accepting applications at this time,” Ahsoka is depicted sitting on her fighter ship, grieving the loss of her squadron with her head bowed.

Beneath, “please try again,” Anakin is depicted in a red and black fog clutching his head in torment as the Son reveals his future as Darth Vader.

The rest of the shots alternate between each other and the blue text of “and again.”

Obi-Wan looks at the viewer in grief and pain as he and others are tortured by slavers.

Padme closes her eyes in grief as she realizes her attempts to make peace is undermined with the assassination of the Separatist Senator, Mina Bonteri. They were friends.

Ahsoka cradles the dead body of Padawan Kalifa as she and the others are hunted for sport.

Anakin bows his head, eyes squeezed shut, as he grieves Obi-Wan, whom he believes to be dead.

Obi-Wan cradles the dead body of Satine, murdered in front of him.

Padme bites her lip in distress as she tells Anakin she needs a break from their relationship, and that she doesn’t feel safe with him.

A screen shot of Ahsoka jumping into the lower depths of Coruscant as she flees from Anakin and his troopers, who are trying to bring her in because of her supposed crime against the Temple. Beside this still is another of Anakin, reaching out towards a prone Ahsoka after she has been finally caught. In the second, Anakin remains in shadow while Ahsoka is illuminated with a beam of golden light.

Ahsoka listens to her banishment from the Jedi Order with her eyes closed. Behind her, Anakin looks on, distraught.

After she is revealed innocent of her crimes, Ahsoka, barely holding back tears of grief and anguish, tells Anakin she is not coming back to the Order. Beside this image is one of Anakin, eyes wide and mouth partly open: he is stunned, he cannot believe she is leaving, this cannot be happening

The final still features Ahsoka walking away from the Temple into the sunset over the final segment of the quote: “and again…”]

I’ve officially submitted my vet school applications (I have a few supplemental applications left, but that’s nothing compared to what I’ve filled out already).  I managed to quote Laurens in my personal statement and discuss him in some of my essays.

Now that that’s done, I may actually have some time to get back to blogging.

So I was cleaning out my old folders on my computer today and I came across a file called “Wellesley Supplement.” It was from when I was applying to colleges and was filling out the Common App and writing supplements and what not. I opened it up to read it, and was greeted with this beautiful document. I totally forgot about it, but here’s the story:

So my mom and I share a dropbox, and when I was working on the supplement, my mom was expecting to see it in dropbox saved as a file. I made this decoy to get her off my trail (cause who wants their parent to read a supplement they aren’t done with yet, right?). So here I am, 6 months later, getting pranked by myself. Woops.

have escaped to the spectrum from the mayhem of my house to churn out these two last minute applications essays. 16 something hours until the deadline hits. dun dun dun.

(real reason I’m here may be to act as my parents DD after their comedy show but whatever. barnes and noble is always a good productivity spot.)

I got espresso, veggie grill, and ritalin in my blood.
time to do this.
writing starts now.

me: oh look this job seems really cool and has loads of perks!!! this is what i’ve been waiting for!!!! even if i don’t have all the things they are looking for, i can give it a try and see if i get it :)

job site: “more than a 100 people have already applied for this job”

A couple of other Autistics and I run a Facebook page known as Autistics Against Curing Autism, along with a recently opened blog by the same name.  Our team is currently small and, quite frankly, understaffed.  Our team members all have outside obligations that sometimes prevent us from making regular posts or responding promptly to comments and messages.

In order to keep the Facebook page and the blog running as smoothly as possible we would like to expand upon our current team.

Any Autistics looking to be part of a team of individuals working to spread the word that Autism doesn’t need a cure should follow the link below, read the guidelines, and fill out the application.  We are only accepting Autistic applicants at this time, but if you aren’t Autistic you can still help out by sharing this post and the corresponding Facebook post.

(The image in this post is the same as the image found in the blog post that’s linked above.  If you need an image description one can be found directly below the image on the aforementioned blog post.)

Currently: Gilmore Girls, online job applications, coffee, to-do lists.

Things have come to a head with my family. Not a very pretty one at that. I’ve never known such petty, hateful, self-absorbed people in my 44 years. I want out. Grace wants out.

So, I’m working on part-time job applications so I can have a job to get an apartment. I also need to find a way to get a cheap car to get back and forth to work. Trying to figure out what I have in storage to sell. But not much there. If I’m back in town Grace can ride the bus to and from school. I could bike to work if it’s not too far. And then there’s the deposit and first month’s rent. I can do this. Somehow, I can do this.

Thinking out loud…..
