1L complete.

18 May

I am honestly in shock that 1L year is done. This has been the fastest year of my life. Sure, there were frustrating moments – Parol Evidence in contracts, the servitudes and covenants, midterms and papers, constant reading, cold-calling,  competition, stress, and the inevitable section drama. But I was also challenged, made friends with some awesome people, learned to really love LA, and figured out how to unpack an issue-spotter exam, what it means to follow IRAC, laughed at various LLS internet memes, and bonded with my classmates over beer at every possible opportunity.

This was a great year. And I am SO glad it is over.

My last final was Thursday afternoon – Intro to Intellectual Property. It was short and semi-sweet. Here’s a picture from a case I WISH we had read. Dang.

As soon as it was over, Taylor, Aviva, and I grabbed din at The Fat Dog on Melrose. I enjoyed an Anchor Steam and their classic burger.

Later, we met up with Armita and Blake and headed to Bar Review at an awesome club called Elevate with stellar panoramic views of the city. So cool.

DTLA love.

We chatted with our section-mates and just generally revelled in the fact that we finished what is considered the hardest year of law school. NBD.

fact: i would be 200% more of a wreck if it weren’t for this posse.

I took it SUPER easy today and am headed back out downtown tonight with Whitney to celebrate our friend Kelsey’s birthday! #runthistown. I am taking full advantage of this weekend, before I have to buckle-down for another week or so to prepare my submission for the Loyola Law Review write-on competition.

Happy Friday, everyone! 🙂

      They don’t need public props. We all have HUGE egos let’s be real.
