Really not sure why I went to law school. I spent all that time and money earning the degree and getting licensed. I now go into work, and while I do enjoy what I do somewhat, I am always stressed and I cant sleep at night because I’m worried about messing something up. I look at my friends who aren’t attorneys and they not only have a much more lax workload and can have more fun during the week, they also make more money than I do. Why am I in this industry again?
