He said that he is a Vietnam vet, but practicing law was by far the worst thing he had to do, and if it wasn't for the dominatrix sessions, he would have blown his brains out long time ago.

    No, I'm not making this up.
    What's her hourly rate?

    The substance abuse stuff scares me :/ When I started going to school and taking my early psychology and social work classes, we got warned about the high burn out rate.

    Why do you think the legal profession does this to so many people?

    Here are some reasons from the top of my head:

    It's boring work, hours are terrible, clients always think they are getting ripped off, people think you have money when in fact you don't, you have to hustle for scraps while ABA is watching you like a hawk and threatening to disbar you if you ever piss off a client while constantly reminding you that you should do pro bono work (i.e. hand out shit for free to the people that disdain you), and you can't quit because you are overly invested (3 years of your life, $100K of your money).

    I decided against going to law school last year to pursue something more creative/less soul sucking. This thread has been most enjoyable. Goodbye cognitive dissonance
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.

    I had an interest in law, but then I felt like there was just a lot of bullshit social crap and doctoring of information. I can get intensely passionate about defending people's rights and maintaining equality and consistency, but the general type of people in a field can kill my interest.

    It goes for accounting too. I love math, I love numbers and systems. I could do calculations all day. However, I got a glimpse of the "do x and y 1 million times over and over again and that's your career" and I didn't want it.
