Soooo, yea… I’ve been m.i.a on the blog for about a month now. I have updates for you guys so lets just get started, shall we?
1. I CHOSE A LAW SCHOOL!!!
I put this in caps because I thought I was never going to make a decision. So on August 9th (my 22nd birthday) I will be packing my bags and driving to Illinois. *Whoa*
2. I signed a lease on an apartment.
As soon as I decided on a school, I went apartment hunting. I took a few tours on admitted students weekend & fell in love with an apartment. I wanted to get things done as soon as possible, so I did the application right away & got approved to move in on August 10th. I will be living alone (wooohooo) in a one bedroom one bathroom not too far away from the law school.
3. I am *almost* done with undergrad.
One class away from my degree. ONE CLASS. I graduate on August 8th, 71 days, 1 hour & 57 minutes…in case you were wondering.
4. I got a full-time job
Summer jobs are awesome. This summer I’m working at a local law school as a Bar prep administrator. It’s pretty ironic that I’m working with Bar prep before I even start law school.
I’m on a regular schedule with work, life & school so I’ll be posting more regularly on the blog this summer.

Congratulations!! The summer before my first year of law school was such a whirlwind. Remember to relax, if you’re able to, and spent the last few weeks with your friends. I was in such a rush that I moved down 6 weeks before school started and felt like I lost out on valuable time that I could have used to make new memories with my friends from college.
If you ever want to vent, ask questions or just chat, let me know!

Oh my goodness, you don’t know how much it means to me that you commented! I’ve been reading your blog for so long so I’m totally fan-girling lol. I will definitely take your advice, I’ll admit I’ve been getting a bit caught up in the countdown so I have to come down to earth & enjoy my free time while I have it >_<
I’m so glad you’re a fan! I only knew one girl in law school when I was thinking about it, and she was 1600 miles away, so when I started this blog I wanted to answer any questions that other potential and actual law students have.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the countdown; I still do (now it’s graduation!). Give yourself time to be really excited, day dream, and plan for law school, but make sure that you still have a non-law school life.
If you’re looking for a good book to read, read “Law School Confidential”. It’s written by law students for law students and gives great advice.
