Kim Kardashian Is Going To Be A Lawyer And We Stan It

Kim is trying to pursue a law degree, in addition to being a successful business woman and mother of three (almost four!).


Kim Kardashian West recently made the public announcement that she is studying to become a lawyer. Kardashian has studied extensively and taken a few practice BAR tests. She reports that, with a team of tutors, she is working hard to master the material. This news doesn't come as a surprise, as Kardashian helped free an inmate recently who was wrongfully charged. Her father, Robert Kardashian (1944-2003), was one of the most well-known lawyers in southern California. Kim is pursuing a law degree, in addition to being a successful businesswoman and mother of three (almost four!). Her passion for this subject is admirable.

On Instagram, Kardashian explained her situation with taking the BAR exams. In the state of California, you don't need a college degree to sign up for the mini-BAR exams, you only need 60 credit hours. Years back, Kardashian attended college and earned herself 75 credit hours. Each week she must put aside 18 hours to study the material with tutors and then take multiple choice tests monthly. After almost a year of studying, Kardashian will take the "baby BAR," which is a condensed version of the actual test. She plans to take the BAR exam in 2022.

Last year, Kim Kardashian became involved in the case of a woman named Alice Marie Johnson. She committed a nonviolent drug offense and was serving life because of it. Kardashian became aware of this and did research on Johnson's case. She ended up visiting the inmate and having a meeting with President Trump. Kardashian was able to grant Johnson clemency and she was freed.

This recent interest in the prison system, as well as her dad's history in law, is a perfect explanation of her new goal. Father Robert Kardashian is notorious for being one of the lawyers in the O.J Simpson case and they are also very good family friends. Kim Kardashian's recent clemency grant and her father's passion for law are some of the driving factors behind her pursuit of a law degree.

Kim Kardashian has faced backlash for her recent decision, which is why I believe she kept it hidden for so long. Many people see her as a beauty model or social media icon and don't associate her with intelligence. However, she has managed to study for her BAR exam and continue being successful in the workplace. Kardashian is proving to the doubters that she can balance her motherly and business duties with her new study hours.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
