Graduated

It has been a long climb – at this point, a full year longer than intended – but I’m pleased to announce that I have officially graduated from Western State University College of Law.  On May 31, 2011, the school awarded me the degree of Juris Doctor.

In the week since I found out, my emotions have swung from ecstatic to humbled and hit everything in between.  There is no way I could have accomplished this without the unending love and support of my husband.  Chris, you’re amazing.  That’s not a big enough word – there isn’t a big enough word – but it will have to do.  And thanks to the rest of my family and friends who have encouraged me and consoled me and just generally kept me sane on the journey.

Having finally accomplished this goal, I intend to prove every day that I’ve earned it.  Right now, that means tackling the Bar Exam.  My days are quite full studying; you’re not going to see much of me until the very end of July.   After that, I’ll get reacquainted with the world at large.
