Shorter answer: Find something that you love to do and do it. Keep doing it until you find someone who is compatible with your thing-that-you-love-to-do, and love them also. I had several relationships and events that couldn't really be called relationships, but it wasn't until I stopped looking for her, that I found the love of my life.

Get that law degree, if its your dream. Do with everything you have and don't look back, you'll turn to salt

I guess that's why it's call falling into love. I'll fall into eventually, I guess. Keep myself open, but don't go actively pursuing it. I'll "let it happen."
~I'm 21, about to turn 22
~I graduated College less than two weeks ago with a BA in Political Science/Concentration in Legal Studies
~I'm going to a T1 law school in the fall
~I do have loans, but my parents are helping with those (thank the Infinite Source for that)
~I have a lot of friends from University and Highschool
~I don't necessarily talk to all of them on a regular basis...sometimes I forget about them, or just don't care enough to contact them...even with facebook
~Sometimes (see: a lot) I find that I don't take opportunities that are not related to my direct destination. Meaning, I will sometimes shrug off chances for study abroad, weekend social building activities, and campaign events because they don't directly contribute to my goals.
~I do tend to try to help people as much as I can in the way of notes, studying tips if I've taken the class, passing on my LSAT books, petty donations, picking up people who've been knocked out in a bar etc...(the little stuff)
~Sometimes I allow the stress to get to me.
~Sometimes I'm frightened to all hell when presenting in front of large groups, and other times I'm confident. I can't control it...yet.
~Not on any meds now. (Most I've been on was Allegra)
~I'm not going to lie, sometimes I wish for a huge economic crash or alien contact so that everyone would be relatively free from the rat race (I know how idiotic and selfish that sounds, especially since all of my benefits and opportunities come from the current system and the hard work generations have invested into it. It's a negative quality of mine)
~I'm trying to gain a stronger sense of spirituality, maybe even ego death if I'm lucky.
~I love writing (Check out some of my short story threads)
~I work out and lift very regularly
~I'm not too tall or too short, average height.
~I tend to spend a lot of time on the internet, writing, meditating, and generally hanging out by myself or with my parents on holidays
~Particularly handsome (Ego is showing)
~Never had a girlfriend...never really wanted one
~Not inexperienced with ladies
~Have some wild plans for where I want to take my law degree and what I want to do with it (Can't say, sorry)
