I’m terrible at talking about myself.
I’m a law student and one of the many, many editors of our law review. I used to do theater, and sometimes also theatre, and I hope to do it again someday (when the weight of the law school world no longer crushes my fragile spirit) because I have never felt more alive than when I am on stage. Litigation-type work (trials, depositions, appellate advocacy) comes pretty close, though.
I love writing, although I am afraid that legal writing may have ruined my ear for the real thing. I do enjoy legal writing, though; it’s a form of creative expression that also furthers your client’s interests (and, if you play your cards right, you can get paid a lot of money for it, too).
I love parentheses, but I am trying to cut back. I have actually been rather restrained in my use of them on this page.
I have a cat, and occasionally he makes me lol.
