Like Someone to Save You

Today was my graduation from law school.

It has been a busy week full of travelling around with my parents and little brother and showing them some of Vermont's finest sights, but today has been pretty emotional for me. If I don't think about it too much then the fact that tomorrow is my last day in Vermont until who knows when doesn't bother me. Inevitably I end up thinking about it and it does.

This might sound crazy but I really think Vermont saved my life. I was a mess when I came here in 2009. I was miserable, heartbroken, sad, angry, and terrified about going to law school. Now here I am three years later and I did not just survive, I have thrived.

I feel like I have been searching for a place to call "home" for some time now. A place where I can put down roots and stay for forever. I know that Vermont is not that place for me, but looking back on my life over the last eight years, I know I've left little pieces of home everywhere I have been. I just want to gather those pieces up into one spot so I can have my place to call home.

I feel like there is a lot about this subject that I can't put into words. Here is a photo of me in my graduation regalia. Also, I must warn you that my bar class starts Tuesday, and so I will be taking a blogging hiatus until after the Arizona bar in late July. My next post will probably be in August, after I've had a little time to recuperate. So have a lovely summer! Think of me fondly!
