I know our 1Ls don’t necessarily feel fantastic right at this moment, but by lunchtime I suspect they will feel significantly better.
Completing the first semester of law school is quite an accomplishment in and of itself. You should be proud, they should be proud, and I am proud!
The students really have no idea how much they have learned (and changed) in these few short months. I should warn you: If you have not had significant interaction with your student this semester, odds are that they will seem to speak a different language when they return home for the holiday break! This new language may be annoying, but just indulge them. They won’t know any better. 🙂
I remember very well the first morning after my first semester of law school. I looked forward so very much to sleeping in and not having to think! Imagine my disappointment when I woke up at the same time I had awakened all semester, and everything within me said I should be thinking about something! I had studied so hard for so long that it really did take me several days just to remember how to relax!
Thank you all for tagging along on the blog this semester. It has been an experiment that I enjoyed very much. With the students leaving town, I’m going to take a break from posting anything here until the first day of class next semester (Monday, January 7). I hope you all have a very happy holiday season!!!
