New York, Baby!!! That’s Where It’s At!!!

ORIGINALLY POSTED 7/6/11–Start spreading the news….I’m leaving today. Well, not today, but this weekend I’ll be in New York City! This is my all time favorite city, so as I’m sitting here typing I can’t stop smiling.

It’s funny, soon after I submitted the last blog I got a call and received the opportunity to attend the annual American Association for Justice convention in NYC. Clearly, God knows what he’s doing. He has such wonderful things in store for me that it’s a shame I keep getting in the way of His plans.

I’ll be able to attend legal seminars and network at the convention, but I am especially looking forward to a mini-vacation. My last vacation was in 2007 when my family and I spent a week in NYC.  Since then I have been in school, working, or in school AND working—I’m mentally and physically drained. Ironically, the fast-pace and overload of NYC is just what I need for a few days.  The frantic buzz of NYC makes everything else pale in comparison.  I imagine that by the time I come back, I’ll look at my hectic life and be grateful for its comparatively slow and steady pace.   This is just what I needed to lift my spirits.

My mom’s going with me, so watch out 5th Avenue…the girls will be loose in the Big City!  I’ve also found tickets for us to see Jersey Boys on Broadway, but that’s a surprise.  Don’t tell!  Sixty-degree evenings in July!?! Sweet!


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.
