It’s over!  This morn­ing I put an end to my first year of law school when I handed in my law jour­nal write-on com­pe­ti­tion packet (funny story: the topic was copy­right).   The past two months have been pretty exhaust­ing, but I’m glad to be done and look­ing for­ward to get­ting to San Fran­cisco for the sum­mer.  Adven­tures will include hik­ing Half Dome, river raft­ing, prob­a­bly another cross-coun­try drive at the end of the sum­mer… oh yeah, and help­ing defend teh inter­netz.

I also wanted to point to this announce­ment that I received first place in the annual legal writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion for first year stu­dents at William & Mary.  No one actu­ally knew this com­pe­ti­tion existed until after we had turned in our required research mem­o­ran­dums, so it was a pleas­ant sur­prise to receive this award.  Not a big fan of the pic­ture they chose to use, but, hey, what can you do?
