One downside of choosing to go to William & Mary is that I’ll have to leave California, a place that I’ve come to really love. I think (and hope) that I’ll end up here again after law school, and hopefully during the intervening summers as well. That said, a cross-country move gives me the opportunity to take a cross-country road trip — an opportunity I am not hesitating to seize.
My mom is planning to do half the trip with me, and our first stop will be in San Diego where my brother will have just taken up residence as an ensign in the Navy. After that we’re considering a push to Silver City, NM to visit some family. Next stop: San Antonio, where I’ll crash with Taylor and Katherine while my mom flies home to Birmingham. From Texas I’ll go on to Baton Rouge, and then make the relatively easy jaunt up to Birmingham.
Phase one of the trip being complete, I’ll organize my life and relax a little with my parents before making the two day trek to Williamsburg, via Greenville or Charlotte. All said, I’ll hopefully only have to spend one night in a hotel, which ain’t too bad.
