Greetings All,

It's been awhile since I've last updated, so thought I'd give you an ever so brief insight as to what I've been up too.

As most know, in December, my job situation changed so I took the opportunity to learn something new. Resulting in going back to school. Yikes! I cannot tell you how long I've been out of school, and now going back is both exciting and challenging as there is certainly a certain mindset that goes along with the "class room" learning as opposed to the "real world" learning.

Little challenging trying to manage school as well as maintaining my three remaining accounts, but it seems to be transitioning smoothly.

The thing I’m most looking forward to is a career change as I’m really burned out of the legal field. For me, it’s served a fantastic purpose in my life, but now I’m ready to get out of the mode of living in my head only. Moreover, over the years I’ve developed a somewhat cynical outlook on people in general because this field tends to taint your view on society as a whole, and I’m ready to change that perspective. I do realize this is possible in anything we do in life and not just specific to the legal field. I’m just done and ready to help people in a different fashion as well as living more balanced between my head and heart.

Well done girl !
I too went back to school after having kids. Quite a challenge I must say, but was worth every minute.... You just have to get organised, that's all.

Thanks for the briefing.
Wishing you the best of luck .
May Allah bless you and Amira.
