“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 […]

My commencement speech – A Dream Deferred…

As graduation was nearing I decided to answer the call to apply to be the commencement speaker for graduation. Unfortunately, I was not selected. However, I thought that I should still share my speech. I hope you enjoy!   A Dream Deferred What becomes of a dream deferred? Does it study for the LSAT, apply to law […]

Springtime in Boston

It’s a beautiful spring day here in Boston, and because I’ve been studying all weekend and I’m not in the mood to write about anything related to law school, here are some things I’m loving about this time of year: 1. Patriots’ Day Today is Patriot’s Day! Huge perk of going to law school in […]

Out of the Park

It’s that time of the year again. Spring training is over and the regular baseball season has begun. The Boston Red Sox are off to a great start with two big wins in New York against the Yankees. No matter what team you root for, the greatest thing about America’s pastime is the sense of […]
