A heat wave is just starting to settle over Boston. With temperatures over 100 degrees, it is hard to focus on just about anything. My garden, however, is loving the heat. Tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers have finally started to explode and in a week or so I might have to start eating salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner just to use them all up.
Summer classes are going well and are at about their halfway point right now. I have really enjoyed each of my classes this summer and am surprised by how quickly the time has gone by. My finals are on August 15 and 16 so studying will get underway soon.
This summer I am also planning to take the MPRE. I started studying today and will do so for a few hours each day so I will be ready to go on August 5th. I’ve already taken Professional Responsibility so the concepts are familiar. Thankfully I took a small, fun seminar course so I remember almost all of the content. I’m crossing my fingers that everything goes smoothly with the exam.
I also found out recently where my next coop will be. I will be working at a medium sized firm near State Street that practices in the areas of civil litigation, general business matters, corporate and employment law, as well as real estate and trusts and estates. I am really looking forward to the experience and excited to get started there, probably just after Labor Day.
As if all of that isn’t enough going on in one summer, I have also started to think about post-graduate employment and have been watching out for opportunities and have just started applying to various positions. I could not imagine a better end to this year than knowing where I will be working and what is in store for my future. For now, I am planning for every possibility and hoping for the best!
But before the summer ends I have a few fun plans in store. This summer I will be going on two mini vacations and finally taking my honeymoon. My two mini vacations are three day trips to Bar Harbor, Maine and Mystic, Connecticut. The Maine trip will be spent with my partner’s family this coming weekend and the other with my family just after finals. Then, just before starting coop, my partner and I are going to spend a week on Martha’s Vineyard! Since we have never been on vacation before, we are really looking forward to a quiet week spent laying on the beach, swimming and barbequing together.
Finally, I can’t believe that before I start my next coop my brother in law and the whole class of 2014 will start their law school career! I am really excited for him and sad that I will be away from campus for his first few months.
