Law school makes me feel like a Grinch every year. Each December is clouded by finals, studying, worry, anxiety, and general stress. But this is the LAST December that law school will ruin, as I’ll be graduating in May. I cannot wait to have my weekends and evenings free (and I will — no Big Law for me!) to celebrate the season. I’ll be able to enjoy all the things that get pushed aside — holiday baking, decorating, sending out Christmas cards, etc.
My last final is tomorrow morning — then I’m heading home to see my parents for Christmas. I. Cannot. Wait. But for the next 24 hours or so I will remain a Grinch ;)
