I have to credit the COVID19 pandemic for allowing me to change my life and go in a new direction.
- Looking back, I’m not sure if I ever wanted to be a lawyer in the first place, or if that was what was wanted for me.
My folks and both of my siblings are lawyers, so that seemed like the right path to take. I very hated being a lawyer though, so when the pandemic had all of us entirely working from home, I finally had time to reflect on my life choices. I realized that aside from the currency I do not like my life. After taking the money out of my 401k I quit, and picked up a section time job at the cannabis dispensary. I have had to reduce my expenses, and change my lifestyle, but my new life at the cannabis dispensary is a thousand times better than my outdated life. On top of it all, I get a very healthy employee discount on all my marijuana products, which is a bigger benefit to me than any health and dental insurance. Plus there are the free samples, which are more frequent than you work in a cannabis dispensary. When a new line of hybrid strains is being released, for example, companies will send “tester samples” along with the first shipment. This allows the workers at the cannabis dispensary to test them out for free, and hopefully be able to command them more strongly to the clients. I have tried more types of new cannabis in the last year than I have in my whole life previously, so I suppose I made the right choice.
