Last week I was at an attorney event where the coordinator asked if I new a 1L who was her cousin. (Oddly enough it was the same 1L that I ranted about not too long ago.) I said no and she proceeded to tell me that this 1L has wanted to quit law school more than once already. This got me thinking. I also wanted to quit law school several times last year. I just didn’t get it. I didn’t feel like I was doing anything lawyerly. I hated the classes. I hated how much work I had on my plate. I hated the lack of conversation. I hated that everyone seemed to know what they wanted to do. I actually re-wrote the Katy Perry song “Hot and Cold” to fit law school! But this year I can honestly say that I haven’t felt that way. Even though I’m bogged down with work I’m beginning to see myself as a lawyer and it’s a good feeling.
