Network, network, network!

The idea of networking seems to strike fear into the hearts of the meek. It feels formal and daunting. It pushes shy people far outside their comfort zone. I’ll admit that it can be incredibly intimidating, but it is one of the greatest skills you can gain. Before I started law school, I recall my […]

New Year

2013 was quite a year, full of unforgettable moments. Like most of us, Boston had its ups and downs. There was the Boston Marathon, but then there was the World Series. The year ahead most likely has much more in store for us. That’s why it’s important to continue looking forward. As the first day […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Semester in the Governor’s Office

If you looking for a great way to spend your final semester in law school I would highly recommend participating in the Semester in Practice program (SIP). I have been able to spend my last semester working everyday in the Office of the Governor’s Legal Counsel. I have had the opportunity work on regulatory issues, gaming issues, […]

Cheering Each Other On

I was studying at a coffee shop. Writing a feminist jurisprudence paper about human trafficking, arguing (via the paper) with Catharine MacKinnon’s conception of sex work. My phone rang – it was my dad calling. “Hi Elizabeth.” “Hi Dad.” “Where are you?” “Uh, a coffee shop.” “Where?” “In Cambridge, why?” I was vaguely annoyed at […]

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 […]

Brewing Success

Boston is known for many things. It is a city filled with stories and historic landmarks everywhere you turn. I knew it would be a great place to live before I moved here and that there would always be something new to see or do. What I didn’t know was how much passion Bostonians had […]
