I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, since August 17, 2016 to be exact. That was the first day of orientation for 1L students at Brigham Young University.
That day, I sent my sweet husband off to his first day of law school with a sack lunch and his new shoes and thought, “Well, that’s the last time I’ll see him for a while.”
Once he bounded out the door, full of energy and excitement, the smile on my face faded and I sunk into our used couch that we found on the side of the road.
“How am I going to do this?” I said to myself. I was now the only one with a job, and I was starting grad school in a few days. I felt like I was being thrust into a life of independence without really understanding what that entailed.
We’ve now endured a semester of law school (and a semester of grad school), and I feel more confident writing about our experience. So why am I telling you this? Because being the wife of a law student has significantly impacted my personal development, which is what this blog is about! As I continue this journey as a law school wife, I’ll continue to write about the things I learn and experience.
