Graduation! Three long years . . .

Posted by newlawmom on May 4, 2011

This poor blog has gone abandoned. But alas, I have returned to let you all know that I have survived. I have beyond survived. I am finished with law school and set to graduate with multiple awards and honors to show for it. I’m just finishing up an internship with a legal service organization and will remain there as a volunteer over the summer. I’ve been given a heads up that a position will open there in the near future and I will apply if that happens. In the meantime, I’ve applied for one “long stretch” job and a couple of part-time positions. My bar application has been submitted and I am going to be studying for that exam completely on my own. 

Alot of things have changed since I started school. My kids are now 11, 15, and 21. They have grown up alot since I started and I think that watching me apply myself to this venture has been good for all of them. I have had three more years to heal from the catastrophe that led me to law school and I am most certainly in a better position now. And, of course, I lost my mom and her partner. That is a hard loss and I am not looking forward to my first Mother’s Day without her.  I will also miss her presence at my graduation. She would most certainly be proud.

So lately I’ve been browsing the blawgs that I used to read everyday. It is great to see all the MILP’s doing so well! You are an inspiration to me as I start to contemplate the work that I will hopefully find. It might be a good time to blog again. We shall see. For today, thank you to all the MILP’s who blog faithfully. I am happy to say that I have succeeded in joining your ranks despite all odds and multiple obstacles! I hope you all have a fantastic day.
