Law School: 2 weeks in (almost 3)

1 Sep

Well, here we are, 2 weeks in.  Ok, I guess it’s really just one official week of class, but orientation lasted a week, so that’s gotta count for something, right?

So far, so good.  I couldn’t be more proud of Joel and how hard he’s working.  He’s spent every lunch break studying, reading, or briefing cases.  He’s spent hours and hours working at home and at the library.  It’s clear he’s motivated, and it’s really encouraging to see.

Now, I haven’t really seen him much for about 2 weeks, and that is taking some getting used to, as we’re used to having lots of time together.  I’m sure, though, that I’ll manage that transition ok, and it helps knowing that Joel is so motivated to do well.

His professors at Campbell Law School have been really gracious about our situation – what with a baby arriving in the next few weeks, Joel emailed them all to let them know there’s a possibility he might have to dash out of class someday soon to take me to the hospital, and that he might miss class for a few days.  They’ve all been accommodating, and most of them have had humorous responses, signing their responses “Professor X, who loves babies more than anything,” and saying “Not only can you keep a cell phone on you during class, but you better! Would you rather have a professor slightly annoyed with you, or a wife who is justifiably angry?”

It’s helpful to know that they are understanding of our situation and the challenges we’ll be facing this year, and they’re willing to help Joel make sure he’s staying on top of everything at school.  Thanks professors – for real.  We appreciate it.

    Oh, that’s all so good to hear! I’m so happy for you and Joel and your new amazing life experiences. I saw on Twitter that you’re selling your house, too! Yay yay yay. You are going to be one nesting lady once you get into a new place.
