Violent swerves in life

One day, you’re writing code, packaging and translating it, administering systems and giving talks about free software. The next day, you realise you want to go to Law school.

It does not feel any different from starting all over. Fortunately, it feels like it is soon enough.

  1. There is no mysterious reason that made me change my mind all of a sudden, actually. My post was concise enough not to let that come across clearly, but unless I am failing to analyse the situation properly, which I doubt, my desire and inclination to study Law has been an undeniable fact for my entire life, which my family and I have failed to acknowledge. There was my interest in computers, and the fact that both my parents are engineers might have contributed to that.

    I used to say, when I was 6 years old, that I wanted to be a lawyer. A decade later, it still is something that fascinates me, something I believe I would love to work with – probably in association with computers and free software, after what I have gone through in the meantime – and, as far as I can tell, something I have more ability to do. I have never been a very good programmer anyway 😉
