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 […]

Celebrating Diversity

          The fifth of May has arrived, which means that it is my first Cinco de Mayo in Boston. Here in the United States it’s a time to celebrate Mexican heritage, among other things. While most of us will be inside studying for our last week of exams instead of drinking […]

My first piece on Social Earth

Greetings All, I come to you with another dispatch from the world of 3L-dom. I, like many of my friends and colleagues are still figuring out where we fit in, in the law and the world that surrounds it and or is powered by it. I am still attempting to connect all the dots, and will […]
