State of the Blog: Last Day of School

9cb80e068e5e91f579e1bb9bb4d85cd1.jpg

***

Today is my last official day of law school.  I still have a few extern hours to complete, and a case to close, but this is my last exam.

I’m usually not one of those people who wonders where the time went, but I feel like I blinked and it was over.  At times, law school was nightmarish.  At other times, it was exactly where I wanted to be.

Some of you have written in looking for tips on getting into law school, surviving it, excelling at it, and I’ll write about it more in depth at some point.  But for now, I just need to get through these last few days.

Back tomorrow.  xoxo, Belle

    Congratulations! Are you taking the bar exam? I haven’t read mention of it, so I just wondered if that was on the horizon.

    Congratulations! As a practicing attorney, I am eager to hear what you think once you start your legal career. I don’t know if I am becoming more jaded or if people are becoming more rude, but I don’t know that I enjoy my job as much as I once did. I am a litigation attorney so it is contentious by its nature, but the way in which attorneys treat one another makes the practice miserable at times.

    Congrats! I’ve been reading your blog since the mid/late-2000s, way back when I was trying to figure out how to dress for my (then) new job. Along the way I’ve felt a bit like your cheering section as you made different career moves and your blog evolved over time. (And I’ve felt like you are cheering your readers on too, as we all figure out how to be both professional and fabulous.) Can’t wait to see where life takes you next.
