Seeing as how most of our admissions cycles are winding to a close, I can sense how excited everyone is to start school in the fall.  That said, I have been trying to take some time to stop, reflect upon, and truly appreciate what's going on in my world right now.  Sure, I'll be glad to take an extended break from the real world and just be a student again.  Yet I know that sometimes I get so caught up in getting ready for law school in a few months that I forget about the little things that I will miss out on by going to law school.  So that got me thinking...

What part of your pre-law school life will you miss most?

I know I'll miss...
...living with my roomies (who, after all these years, are more like sisters and friends)
...the homemade get well cards and "just because" pictures from 4' tall secret admirers
...spending $3+ on daily Starbucks runs when doing so no longer fits my budget
...people-watching on a summer day at the park near my house

I'm sure there are more little things, but I'll add to the list as they come to me...
What about you?  What's on your list?

Wasting time posting on LSD for hours on end.  Watching reruns of Scrubs, Seinfeld, Sex and the City, Curb, etc.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

And, yes...I'll probably miss the rush of fighting fires, saving lives and just being an overall highly dedicated public servant.  (Well, I'll miss the fighting fires and saving lives parts at least...)
