How I Spent My Summer

Long story short: I paid my seat deposit for law school, scrambled to prepare for the semester, and now I am here having 1L of a time. You may be wondering how I prepared for law school. Well, I didn’t take a prep course, nor did I study any 0L preparation materials. I decided I would prepare by taking 5 days of vacation and visit a different place every day. Granted, I quit my job in July and couldn’t travel anywhere, but it was still the best week of summer 2021.

On day 1, my family and I went to the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, CA. We were so stunned by its beauty and the bonus was that it is free to get in. The ambiance was so light and joyful, and the blissfulness of being in the presence of beauty with my loved ones was invaluable. On day 2, we visited San Diego, CA. Most would dread driving for 3 hours to get there, but the scenery is totally worth it. We started our day by taking a walk in the Japanese Friendship Garden. Then, we had lunch at La Puerta Negra and ended with having ice cream at a local beach. On day 3, we went to Morongo Casino and lost a whole lot of money… On day 4, our plans didn’t work out, so we decided to make the best of the situation and have dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. On the last day, we went to Solvang, CA. I didn’t want to leave. In fact, I wish we would’ve arrived earlier to spend more time in this beautiful Danish town (sigh).

In short, I spent my summer enjoying life, love, and happiness and would not change it for the world.
