always remember the duck tour.

August 14, 2009

Regardless of what happened the past couple weeks, you taught me that it’s out there. You showed me what I really want in my life and you showed me it’s possible. You showed me that there aren't limited options, and that I never have to settle. You did that. Thank you.
I’ll miss you.

It's hard to believe it's all over. Six weeks, up and gone in the blink of an eye. Who would have thought when I posted this blog, that just six weeks later I'd be writing through the tears. Tonight we had the conventional goodbye dinner. We gathered in the same board room that we started in on July 5th. We ate an amazing catered dinner. We sat around and watched as a sideshow with standard 'goodbye' music played reflecting the past six weeks. It's crazy to think that six weeks ago we sat in this board room, uncomfortable and awkward, wondering how these 52 peers and 7 professors would ultimately coexist. And now, here we sit, laughing and crying together, knowing that we're not ever going to be together again (sounds a little familiar huh?). The professors got up and thanked us for being dedicated and awesome, all while imparting a little adult-lsat knowledge at the same time. Some got a little choked up, therefore creating waterworks for the rest of the group. There was one that really caught my attention though. Deb got up and said that she only had two words for us, "Keep moving." Keep moving towards our goals, keep moving towards our dreams. Don't get bogged down, keep moving through the questions on the LSAT, keep moving through the LSAT, law school, the BAR, because in order to achieve our goals, we have to keep moving. We can't get stop going after what we really want. It's so true. We can't let ourselves be held down, because there are going to be obstacles in all aspects of our life. Work, school, relationships, friendships, everything, but the true test of our own ability, is if we have enough, if we have what it takes to keep moving towards our goals. I'm never going to stop moving.
