"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals." ~ Johann Von Goethe
So...in case you've been wondering where I've been lately, and because I have been wanting to write all of this down at some point, here's a quick run-through of my life over the past month or so...
Photo Journal from my instagram (and a few other photos):
|I graduated from law school and had a better-than-perfect graduation weekend with family & friends.|
|I watched hockey with my baby brother.|
|I cooked for my mama. :)|
|Got to have those graduation pina coladas by the pool.|

|I went to Fort Lauderdale to celebrate graduation with friends who I've met throughout this crazy journey.|
(I am so grateful).
|Watched more hockey.|
|I celebrated turning 25 with my favorite twin brother in the whole wide world.|
|I started a new job!|
|Ate some super delicious, fresh Florida fruit.|
...and I started preparing for the Bar Exam.
It's been crazy and emotional, and I've never been so happy and so sad at the same time. Saying goodbye to a chapter of life that has been such a pivotal experience isn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be, but the fact that everything is falling into place so seamlessly is truly inspiring. Good things really do come to those who work really hard to get where they want to be.
Law school has changed me in a million ways. I've laughed. I've cried, and I'm glad that I didn't just breeze right on through it. It brought out traits in me that I never knew existed. It's hard to imagine that, once upon a time, there lived a little girl who thought she'd never be good at anything. It just goes to show that you really can reach the stars with determination, perseverance, a little bit of idealism, a few strokes of luck, and an amazing support system of family and friends. ♥
