    Laura over at WonL just wrote a goodbye letter. It makes me feel quite sad. I will hold out hope that she will start up elsewhere, and that she'll let me follow her - the sadness isn't just about her. It's because, well, I know a lot of the blogs I've been reading are going to do the same. I am going to do the same. I just don't know how yet. I am CERTAIN that I will be here through the bar exam. But then what? Do I leave my archives up? Do I change my name? Do I let everyone who reads this follow me to that?

    I think I have to be more selective than that. Which sucks. Because I like my daily hits. I'll have to start building a whole new readership.

    What kind of readership? Mommy readership? I'm not sure I'm Mommy-ish enough for that. I read this thing on Alpha moms v. Slacker Moms ... I know for a FACT that I am a slacker mom (defined as those who forget to hand in field trip permission slips and occasionally forget when it's there turn to bring the damned orange slices). I don't think slacker-moms get to have Mommy blogs. [Ooh! Maybe that's my calling! Starting the new wave of slacker-mom blogs. I bet we all work.]

    And - it's super sad because it means law school is ending. IT was fun to come across a blogging world of people in law school. I mean, it is a pretty damned unique experience, and having those who understand to rant toward probably helped Beloved to survive the experience.

    I like law school.

    Which may explain why I'm taking 7 hours to finish this last take home, when it should have taken 3. I just don't want it to end.

    I decided today that it's likely that I will cry at graduation. And then I started to think about how dumb that will look. This old woman, old enough to be everyone's mother (okay, okay, so that's not true --- but maybe too old to be an older sister? No. Not really. I could be the older sister) sobbing like a baby.

    I am happy, too, of course.

    But right now, I'm more sad. Perhaps if I go and focus on the international law regime's effectiveness or ineffectiveness in protecting the environment I'll feel less sad.

    Or more sad.

    Damn. I need to shut up so I can write a real goodbye letter later, and not have it be all repetitive and boring.

    And so I can write my fucking take home exam!!! (900 words to go!!)

      Congrats on graduation - I cried through most of mine and no one seemed to notice, so it's okay. I'll be sticking around through the bar, then deciding whether I want to start a whole new blog, too. But for now - yay! We did it!

      Congrats on such an accomplishment! I can see why a major milestone in your life would cause you to want to close up shop and start anew. There is certainly nothing wrong with that as long as you provide the url :).
