That's me up front with the penguin pinned on my green plaid dress on my first day of Kindergarten, 1993.
I feel like I missed summer break this year, because I spent most of the summer studying 10+ hours per day for the bar exam. Now I am finally getting to enjoy summer and it is winding down and most everybody is back at school already. I am trying to enjoy my time before I am employed, since I will never get a summer break like this again. It is truly hard to just relax. I have never had literally NOTHING to do. There has always been something looming, whether it be homework or an internship or Moot Court stuff or ordering textbooks or writing briefs. I have always done super well in school and it has always been a major part of my life. How will I define myself when there are no grades to determine how I am measuring up in life? I guess this is something I will figure out as a move forward in life and into a career, and distance myself from the life of constant education to which I have been accustomed. This video about grad school is pretty hilarious (and NSFW!), you should watch it!
