As April gets closer, I realize that it will be the last full month I have as a law student.  That is the weirdest feeling in the world.  

A close friend from law school asked me and a few other friends last week:  what was your favorite part of law school?  My answer:  (laughter)...

There is no single answer, I have loved every minute of it.  Sure I'd be lying if I said it wasnt ridiculously hard, or frustrating at times, but I can say with confidence that I did in fact love it.

But after I stopped laughing, my next reaction was to say "making friends like you guys."  I met some incredible people over my time at UDM, and  know that I will remain close with many of them even after we leave campus.  And that is awesome.

It is becoming harder to focus on the details of school when such a huge life change is looming large over my head.  But I'm trying to stay hunkered down and enjoy the student experience.  

And so...for now...I suppose that I'll try and prepare for my full trial in 2 weeks for Trial Practice :)
