Why does the world have so many vague answers? :(

Joanne, we could probably give you an entire list of things to do when bored in public. xD

The first thing that comes to mind is winning a camp hockey championship. I was goalie and I shut out the opposing team in the championship. \:D/

That may sound lame to the average reader, but it meant a lot to me. :P

I'm a year away from becoming a lawyer. I have to imagine that much of my writing and debating ability came from time spent in this place!
Kaida wrote:What's your favorite animal and why?
Probably dogs. They're cute and cuddly, important to society, fairly intelligent, and loyal and brave.

The best part of law school has been meeting a lot of fun, intelligent, and compassionate friends. The worst part is having to cram for 4-hour long exams. :(

One year: be an attorney (immigration? civil rights? wills or family law? not sure what kind yet). Five years: be married, have a kid. Ten years: run for public office of some kind.

Generally, being licensed as an attorney in the US enables you to practice in any area you want, so you don't have to "specialize" while in law school, per se. But if you're a bankruptcy lawyer who's randomly doing criminal cases, you're going to mess something up and get sued for malpractice. So yes, where you intern matters. You have to gradually get experience and then slowly gain expertise in different fields.
Marvin D. wrote:boy or girl kid?
No preference!

Based on your insta, you are a grown man. \:D/

Ultimately, I want to help create laws that are fair, just, and progressive. In my opinion, a prerequisive to becoming a lawmaker should be having a strong grasp on how laws created will be applied in the real world and in the courtroom. I want to practice as a lawyer to gain that understanding first.
Marvin D. wrote:What is your go-to dish to bring to a BBQ?
I usually end up bringing chips or drinks. :anxious: But I'm all about burgers, hot dogs, steaks, etc.!
