I'm a juris doctor.

I did it! I graduated! They handed me the diploma, and I put it in the frame, and it's on its way to a storage locker in Connecticut for the summer along with all my other belongings.

Having my parents and sister in town was really fun. Saying goodbye to friends was hard, but I'm sure I'll see most of them again - we'll run into each other in Utah, or they'll call when they're visiting New York. My sister helped me sort through all my stuff and clean out my apartment. I was shocked how many emotions came to the surface as I went through all my belongings, photos, ticket stubs, files, just everything. I said goodbye to my apartment, the law school, and Virginia.

Now I'm spending the week in Cincinnati. My best friends from college are driving in to spend the weekend with me here, then I'll hang with my sister's family for a week, then I'm off to Salt Lake to study for the NY bar during June and July.

I'll post photos of graduation and my family's visit muy soon.

Congrats!

But what part of the body do Juris Doctor specialize in?

Yay Dave, what a great goal to have accomplished! It must be so hard to leave, though- I get choked up about my friends moving who's husbands just graduated, and I've only known them 8 months- and I'm not even the one leaving! Three years there is a big chunk of your life! Now there's nothing left but to be an adult, huh? That should be good, too, though, right?
