The Post-Grad Journey: Slapped by the LSAT

After months of studying and working my post-grad ass off for the LSAT, I finally got my score.

The Post-Grad Journey: It’s Time for the LSAT!

Some people train for marathons – spending every day building their endurance, improving their time, and practicing so they will be able to cross the finish line. I’ve been spending the last five months doing all of the above, but I’m definitely not running a marathon anytime soon. Instead, I’m taking the LSAT … this coming Saturday.

The Post-Grad Journey: Can We Get Our Own Reality Show?

Everyone has a story. And while my post-grad journey has so far revolved around moving to California, interning, working odd jobs here and there, and studying for the LSAT to attend law school next year, I know that my story isn’t a typical after-college route.

The Post-Grad Journey: I Quit!

There comes a tipping point where you have to say “enough is enough,” and you either need to fix what is driving you to the edge or take a step back to realize what needs to be fixed. My tipping point just arrived and resulted in me saying: “I quit!”

The Post-Grad Journey: Geographically Speaking

ve been in California for nearly two months now, but everyone I run into asks the same question: “Are you going to move here permanently?” Those back in Georgia frequently ask me “Do you see yourself moving back home?” And of course, with the LSAT on my mind 24/7, the inevitable question of “Where do you want to go to law school?” comes up.

The Post-Grad Journey: A Lesson in Life

Life lesson #43298: What you think you should do is sometimes completely different than what you want to do – If only I could jump back to last summer to tell myself!

The Post-Grad Journey: It’s Time To Meet The LSAT!

So, it’s crunch time. From this point on until October 9th, my life is really about one thing and one thing only – the LSAT. Of course, I will still have everyday life to live, but from this point on my post-grad life really is going to be dictated by what I am convinced to be as one of the most evil tests in all of existence.

The Post-Grad Journey: Adulthood Decision Making 101

Looking back, college didn’t require a lot of serious decision making – even though I thought it did. For the most part, I made decisions about frivolous things such as: Should I wear pajamas to class today? Should I stick to rum and Coke or go for the Jager bombs? Should I go out tonight or should I spend time working on that eleven-page term paper?

The Post-Grad Journey: Dad, I’m Home!

After a week long trip, complete with a surplus of roadkilled armadillos and a 24-hour stomach bug that caused me to projectile vomit on a cactus in New Mexico, I have finally made it to California.

The Post-Grad Journey: Me, Myself, and I on the Road!

If you told me three months ago that I would drive across the United States to California, I would have never believed you – especially if you told me I would do it alone. Yes, I am making the journey from Georgia to Southern California alone, just me and my packed up Toyota Camry. As I write this, I’m on day 2 of my four day trek – currently camped out in a hotel room in the middle of Texas.

The Post-Grad Journey: And The Journey Begins

Originally, I thought I wanted to attend graduate school and work towards a higher degree in English literature. I spent the entire fall semester working on taking the GRE exam, filling out graduate applications (and spending major money on sending them out!), and writing the most intense essay of my undergraduate career to send along to my program choices.

Behind The Scenes at TFLN: An Interview with Co-creator, Ben Bator

Since my very first TFLN encounter ("I used a bag of wine as a pillow last night") I've been determined to meet the geniuses behind it and kiss them on the mouth shake their hands. And I finally got my chance... to talk to them, at least.
