Da, da-da, da: Done!

And just like that, my adventure in law school has come to an end. I completed my final final and, as far as I know, do not have a single further obligation for law school. Ok, I have to be in court tomorrow for a client, and that's technically law school-related, but only in the most technical sense. I also have law school loans to repay for, oh, maybe the rest of my life, but how about we not think about that right now, hmm? Good, thanks.

The feeling is definitely one of anticlimax. So this is it? This is what it feels like? It doesn't help that I've felt pretty done for a week or more now, really. Or maybe I've really been done since about the first week of last December when I finished my last real final. I dunno. What I do know is that now there is no excuse for not doing the other things that I must do: clean up the apartment so the landlord can show it to prospective renters (anyone want a good place to live in an excellent DC location for a relatively decent price?), arrange a moving truck, find a new place to live, mail off the application for the job of my dreams. You know, little things like that. Maybe I should get to work on all of that, you think?

But first, congratulations to Divine Angst who finished 1L today, and once again to Half-Cocked, who decloaked yesterday to announce that he is also finished with law school. I'm sure there are others who have finished (either with the school year or the whole shebang) or are going to finish soon, so best wishes to you all—may that moment of accomplishment be everything you've always hoped for!

I know the feeling. My last obligation is a meeting with my Clinic supervisor tomorrow morning. My last final was actually in December (I had none this semester). When I walked out of my last class (which was a negotiation type seminar) I didn't feel as if it was actually the end of law school. It's an odd feeling.

Yay for you. Boo for me -- I won't be done for another week.

Yay! Being done is awesome! (At any rate it's so much better than *not* being done...)

BTW, I have several friends who might be interested in that apartment...

It may not sink in today, or tomorrow, but it will soon enough. :)

Congrats! Don't worry, if you miss law school, there's always bar review, which is like remedial law school. :)
