Michelle and I both agreed that Massachussetts has a different feel to it. Granted, I was only like twenty minutes from the border of New York, but it felt kind of quaint. Albany isn't quaint. It's more.... um.... experienced. Anyway, Boston is only three hours away, so hopefully someday in my three year sojourn here in Albany, I'll make it out to Boston!
This weekend I had my first experience as an attorney! Sort of. I volunteered for the pro se divorce clinic in Mechanicville, NY. I worked with another student, and we filled out divorce papers for clients who couldn't afford attorneys. It was interesting. It was a great experience not only to have to deal with all of that paperwork but also to get to interact with a client and explore that relationship. I've also learned a bit about divorce law, in New York anyway.
It's definitely fall here. My apartment is cold! My landlords control the heat, and they haven't turned it on yet... I am very grateful for the big heavy quilts I have (all of which, by the way, were made for me by a family member. My family is amazing!!!!). I'm so glad my family knows how to make quilts because if they didn't, I'd freeze to death! But I stay nice and warm every night. It's in the morning that I get cold! The library is pretty warm though, so it works out. Anyway, the leaves are starting to change, and it's pretty. Honestly, it kind of reminds me of Logan. I'll take some pictures and post them so you can all see fall in upstate New York.
Anyway, just thought I'd share my driving adventure! I miss all of you!
