I’m back.

Posted by newlawmom on August 23, 2010

The question is, to what? 3L. Walking into that building today felt like the most peaceful, happy, reassuring thing I could be doing. My life is back to normal. Am I really saying that? Yup. My spring and summer were so crazy that I actually need the structure of law school to feel like I’m going to be ok. That makes sense to a degree. But for today, it’s not the same. All the people I knew are gone. Somehow I connected more with people a year and two years ahead of me than I connected with people in my own class and certainly more than in the class behind me. I have a select group of friends and acquaintances from my own class, but I don’t seem to have class with any of them. I’m not even sure they were in the building. That’s not a bad thing. I was never in school to socialize anyway, but it does give the place a different feel. This is a place of work. Of business. It’s time to get down to it. My take so far – Prof. Family Law is great. I like his style even though I don’t think I’m going to enjoy the material too much. Prof. Advanced Writing is just ok. But I like to write, so it should be fine. Prof. Real Estate is one of my favorites and knowing his style should make the class just fine. And Prof. Land Use is going to be fine. Land Use is going to be my favorite class if I had to take a guess even though I had no interest in land use issues before I came to law school. It is one of those surprises. Four classes in one day made for a long one, but a three day week makes it all worthwhile. I’ll write again soon. I started this blog as a 1L so I would like to carry it out at least until I graduate. Hope everyone had a great day.
