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 […]

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 […]

“Everything else”

Yesterday, I spent a half hour talking to a friend I’ve known since elementary school. She’s at a much different place in her life; she has a great career and lives in New York City with her husband – far from the academic world that I exist in. As we talked, she didn’t ask how […]

Dressing the Part

Halloween is quickly approaching. A night filled with all sorts of sweets, plenty of parties, and more costumes than one could ever imagine. It can be a lot of fun to dress up and go out with friends. Putting on a mask allows us to become someone else and adopt a new personality for the […]

Not Being A Party Person At BU (Is fine)

This last weekend was BU Law SGA’s annual harbor cruise. I did not go. This post is about fitting in at BU Law if you are not really a party person (it totally works). A little background: I’m kind of a nerd. I like Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Bones, and anything written by Orson Scott […]
