The Journey of the PERSONAL STATEMENT...(Part 1)

Since writing my blog, I have grown to capture life like an actual storybook; I examine each part of life and find something meaningful to talk about.  For example, I have started to think about my law school personal statement.  This 2-3 page document could be the gateway to a lifetime of fulfillment.  There are so many things that I could express in this statement; I JUST DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN…..

me:  what should I focus on when producing my personal statement?

him:  discuss who you are, where you came from, & where you want to end up

me:  I am so nervous; these words could make or break my chances

him:  you have to uplift yourself to be reveal what we see

me:  make myself jump off the page, basically….

One thing that I can admit is my fear of failure….I have never wanted God, my family, or friends to be ashamed for the work that I have done in life.  I can’t really say that their opinions matter, but it somehow matters (especially God).  I can’t believe that my life has come to the point where I am no longer able to teeter totter about decisions; I have to be firm on the choices ahead of me.  WAIT. Am I really writing this personal statement?  Will I finally be called “Esquire”?  If only my last name would change….LOL; just kidding (for now)!  RESUME.     Okay, so I guess it’s time to continue on this journey called “writing”…Southern University, Howard University, or Vanderbilt University, here I come….

A Guillory pursuing law….is society really ready??????  Only time will tell…..
