1. I am an esquire! (translate: I passed the California Bar Exam and was officially sworn in by the Judge I work for.)
Yeah, another lawyer. Let the lawyer jokes (or requests for free legal advice) commence. In all seriousness though, talk about a huge weight off my shoulders. Although I was pretty confident coming out of the test, I could not rest easy until I saw my name on the pass list. It is nice to know that those awful months of studying during the summer (and years of law school) paid off. I cannot thank enough everyone who provided support, advice, and patience. It worked out fabulously that my parents came to DC right after I found out the news so we could celebrate together and they could watch me be sworn in.
2. Alex and I hosted our first Thanksgiving
3. I decided to stay at my job, and in DC, for one more year.
November flew by and I have a feeling December will as well. Holiday season galore. And now I can finally enjoy it without horrible finals getting in the way. Just one more thing to be thankful for.
