Mission Statement

Culinary Adventures in a College Kitchen

Monday, April 2, 2012


I haven't blogged a lot about my law school search.  Mostly, it's because I don't have that many entertaining things to say about it besides a series of Legally Blonde jokes that even make me roll my eyes.  My search has come to an end, though, and I have finally made a decision.

I am officially a member of the University of Illinois College of Law Class of 2015.

Try saying that five times fast.

It was a difficult decision for me.  I was accepted to a number of schools in the city and a large part of me wanted to stay in Chicago.  I love everything about city life.  I love the constant bustle; the fantastic food; the nightlife.  I used to walk around the city and wonder how I had managed to find myself in such a spectacular place.

The prospect of leaving the city and moving down to Champaign for three years sort of terrified me.  I'm not someone who likes change.  I'm comfortable in the city and a large part of me wanted to keep that.  You can't live your life sticking with what's comfortable, though.  Ultimately, I came to realize that U of I was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

I'm looking forward to this next step in my life.  It'll be a different from what I had in Chicago, but different isn't necessarily bad.

Bottom line:  It's going to be an interesting three years.
