Thankful and Blessed

ORIGINALLY POSTED 11/23/10–Finals are a real pain in the neck; I mean this both figuratively and literally.  Unfortunately, it’s the latter that is currently the most urgent. Lack of sleep and upwards of 13 hours at my laptop for each of the last three days has left my neck, shoulders and forearms (from typing) pretty sore. I guess this is the “rigorous” part of my Rigorous Writing class; it was indeed a physical beat down. But hey…I can now check that off my list of things to do. After printing up my final copy on Sunday evening the family and I celebrated with root beer floats!

Now I can begin studying for exams—my first one is a week from this Wednesday and then everything will blur as I limp towards the end of my 5th semester when I can finally bask in my official “3L-ness.” (Yes, I just made that word up—it’s my blog, I can do that.)

Speaking of blogging…next semester I’ll be getting paid to blog! (Calm down, Admissions folks…I’m not going to start charging for my literary witticisms—I do THIS blog ‘cause I love it!) Actually I interviewed for a blogging job at a local law firm last week and was hired on the spot. I’ll be working with Randall D. Moore in his law office and I’ll primarily be blogging about current events relevant to his practice. I’ll also be helping out in the office some and so that’s more legal experiences in my toolbox.

Graduation is coming fast and my two closest friends, Megan and Jonathan, will be leaving. I will miss them both very much. I can’t elaborate too much on this point because I know to do so will make me cry. The law school experience is unprecedented and those of us that go through it together are bound for life. I love you guys and I’m so proud of you both. XXXOOO

Many blessings to all my family, friends and any prospective students out there—Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Best of luck on finals to all the TWU Law community.


About LegalTrenches

I graduated law school in May 2012 and have been blogging about my experience as a non-traditional student since my 2L year. I live over 200 miles from my law school and so I commuted two round trips a week from the beginning. I put almost 1000 miles a week on my car. Law school is crazy. It's even crazier as a non-traditional commuter student, but I wouldn't have had it any other way! I blogged my way through bar prep and sat for the July 2012 Texas Bar exam. Hopefully some of my experiences will help out those taking the bar exam after me. On Nov. 1, 2012, I received my bar results and became an officially licensed Texas lawyer! Follow me as I transition into the legal world as a brand new baby lawyer. I'll try to keep it light and promise to keep it real.
