Apartment Hunting!

When I was accepted to BU Law, I was lucky enough to receive a one-year housing subsidy as part of my academic scholarship – but in order to get the money I had to live on the Boston University campus. I have to admit – the thought of living in university housing didn’t thrill me. […]

“Baby it’s cold outside!”

If you’re coming to Boston from somewhere else, (especially somewhere warm,) you might be curious about what the weather is like here in Boston. This fall and winter have been pretty odd – it was so warm through most of December, but then we had some very cold spells and on-and-off snow. We’re looking at […]

Hitting the Slopes in Maine

The SGA at BU Law does a great job organizing fun outings for the law students.  From chatting with friends at other law schools, I’ve gathered that BU Law’s SGA is exceptionally active.  One of my favorite events is the annual Ski Trip that took place last weekend.  Every year, BU Law arranges for students […]

Rock Climbing at BU

In an interview, I was once asked how rock climbing has made me more prepared as a lawyer.  I have no idea what I said, and I really don’t like that question.  The truth is that, for me, rock climbing and the law represent two separate worlds, and that’s the way it should be.  Every […]

East Coast Benefits

One of the best things about going to school in a major city on the east coast is how easy it is to travel to other major cities on the east coast.  I’m originally from Washington state, and the west coast (best coast) will always be home.  I must admit, however, that having New York […]

One Blurry Year

It has been quite the adventurous year for me! In 2013, I lived in rainy Seattle, battled the Atlanta summer heat , and started law school in Boston. I even saw my first real snow and helped my friends make snow angels for the first time. People aren’t kidding when they say days can just […]

This is what relaxation looks like

I’d almost forgotten what it felt like to breathe. This year was a total whirlwind: The first week of January, we set a date for our wedding and finished up law school applications. In February, invitations went out, and offers were weighed. In March, we finalized plans to move to Boston and celebrated my birthday […]

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays! I have survived finals! I can’t believe it’s over. The last month of the semester was a blur of late nights, long days, lots of coffee, and a few hours of sleep every night. No matter how prepared I thought I would be, I definitely was not prepared enough. I have learned quite […]

Wake Up and Draw the Roses

The City of Boston has a lot to offer.  Unfortunately, many people become consumed with their professional lives and fail to see all of the great opportunities right around them.  Law students are exceptionally susceptible to this fate.  I, for one, wish I would have taken the chance to do more things in Boston during […]

Face to face, screen to screen

  You never promised me a social network, BU. But boy, have you delivered! I’ve been able to make my way through almost an entire semester of interaction, thanks to your Facebook presence and the connections made through it. Thanks for that. I’ve learned who’s quiet but hilarious, seen inside jokes evolve in the space […]
