Juris Doctors

We did it!!! My law school besties and I are law school graduates. Wow!!! I blame Elle Woods for getting me into this mess. "What like Harvard law school is hard!?" Going to law school was one of the toughest leaps I have ever made. And I am beyond glad I did!!! It has been everything I hoped and so much more. I couldn't have done it without my then boyfriend (now husband) and Grandad who always pushed me to follow my dreams. From the LSAT to all those applications, they were pulling for me from day one. My parents, sissies, family, and friends jumped on board and ALL supported me. At law school, I met two best friends. We logged loads of law library hours and saw each other through thick and thin. I must also thank M&Ms, diet coke, and coffee for the much needed caffeine fixes; Wikipedia and Google for helping me through the on-the-fly socratic method (cough, cough International Shoe); LexisNexis and Westlaw for those nifty case summaries; and I really could keep going and going and going.  I, of course, missed my stepdad today. He would be so proud. It made even more conscious to count my blessings and I was so blessed to have my mom, dad, stepmadre, one sissy, both my in-laws, and my husband with me to celebrate law school graduation. It's been quite the rollercoaster ride ... and I hear the rollercoaster is just getting started!!! Cheers to chasing dreams!!! Xoxo-BLC

PS: Happy Friday the 13th!!! I hope it's super spooooookie. I ♥ Friday the 13th because ...
