During certain points of the year, I have found myself really missing school. Most of the time while I was in school, I never felt like I was one of the people who could not wait to be finished or who wanted to graduate quickly. I loved school! However, by the end of law school, I felt like I was finally ready to graduate and work for a while. Studying, stress, and finals really wore me down. The bar this summer just took away the rest of my school energy.
However, this past month was harder. I really missed being in school. I missed the anticipation of finals, I missed studying for finals (if you can believe that!), I missed the coziness of reading, writing, and outlining. I missed taking tests and being rewarded by going on break. I even missed the stress a little bit!
I know that I am doing the right thing by working, that I am lucky to have a job, and that I am happy in my job. However, the realization that I will most likely never be in the school setting again finally set in and made me a little sad. I think it is just part of growing up.
All of my law school buddies, did you miss it this December?
