Winter is coming, which in law school world means finals are also coming. As I put the final touches on my outlines and gear up for practice exams, I realize how hard and rewarding this semester has been.During my 1L year I did not take on any extracurricular activities, except tabling for BARBRI an hour a week. I decided my 2L year should be different. My addition of activities started during the summer when I accepted a position as an ambassador. I remember a couple of ambassadors last year that were so helpful to me that I felt I needed to share with others the things I learned. A few weeks later, I was invited to join the Idaho Law Review. I jumped at this opportunity and responded with a solid “YES!” within a matter of minutes from receiving the email. I could not wait to dive into the Bluebook and learn all I could about citations and footnotes! When the semester kicked off, I continued working for a Professor, editing her article. I soon realized that I needed to start working on my pro bono hours if I wanted to meet my goal of 80 hours before I graduated. I talked to a few friends and someone suggested the Latah County Court Assistance Office. I emailed the supervisor and was told I could start the next week. I love this position and have learned so much from it. I have also worked with a local attorney on a pro bono basis. There have been times that I thought I must be crazy to take on so much on top of my class load. Usually these times come when I have a deadline for something and realize I need to step up my game. But, the moment passes. As I reflect on my busy semester I realize that I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience that I would not have if I hadn’t taken on so much. I have learned that writing down deadlines, and then looking at them every so often helps me keep up. I have learned that even though I have a lot of responsibilities, I can still make time to work out and do something I love. I have learned that Saturdays are best for reading my next week’s assignments. I have learned that it is doing the little things well, that makes us successful. I have gained amazing friendships throughout my journey this semester. I have learned more about myself and how it feels to be able to help someone that truly needs the help. One of the most important things I have learned, is that you never know what you can accomplish until you try. Maybe I am a little crazy, but I cannot wait for the adventures next semester holds for me!
