Thankfully, DH is with me on this - he's thought I should go back to school for years.But I've noticed that some friends are not. At dinner last night, I mentioned that I'm hoping to go back to school. Our friends asked what I was going to study and when I mentioned law, they were silent. I'm getting that reaction from others as well. Even my older brother has been quiet about the whole thing.I know it may seem a little crazy to be doing this at 45, but I was hoping for a little support.Hope others have having better luck.
Friends yes (most of them are in law school already or want to use my sevices), boyfriend no. He thinks I should just be an artist intead.
Try telling your friends (and family) you are going back to law school AND planning to run your first marathon at age (gasp) 40ish. Then see what kind of response you get. I think the LS part tends to get swallowed a bit easier when washed down with some "you will ruin your knees" alcohol in the old age wounds
