Dear Siena,

the week before school started, me and Dad went to the bookstore and bought all my books. I love them. Just looking at them fills my little heart with joy.
Alyson tells me you’re local! Since my orientation week was packed with Freshman year parallels, I feel an agreeable symmetry from your proximity. It's just that this time, instead of 12 credits worth of generals, I have 15 credits worth of 600-level Law classes (Legal Research and Writing, Torts, Criminal Law, Civil Procedure, and Contracts). I wanted to add some undergraduate classes but was told I could take them only if they directly apply to law I’m studying and the dean approves it; I didn't even bother formulating a defense of integrating Chicana Poets or Volleyball into my class load. Frankly, I don’t know what I was thinking anyway, since my studying schedule for the semester almost precludes eating and sleeping. It reminds me of when we lived in Arreta Gardens and I was taking 21 credits and ignoring all our friends. Those were the good days.

Hope to see you, Miles, and Cyrus soon,
britt

  3. Hi Brit. Good luck with law school. Hi Sienna and Miles. I'm assuming Cyrus is your child. That is neat. Congratulations.
