2016 reflections

Another day, another blog post.

I am in a reflective mood as I graduated from law school five years ago this month. I reviewed some of the early posts on this blog. Man, I was angry back in 2011.

I don't even know that guy anymore. Angry Crux. Bitter Crux. Salty Crux.

It is good to have all of that in my rear view mirror. I guess I just needed to work through it. Time heals all wounds? Something like that.

It is apparent that I do not update this blog regularly. In fact, I hardly know what to do with this thing. I don't have much to share. I went to law school, I passed the bar exam, and I have been employed in a couple of offices doing different kinds of work for different kinds of clients. I am older, my car is older, and my kids are older. I am paying down debt and saving for the future. I am not doing anything different than the rest of you are.

I'll keep moving forward in life. What else can I do, right?

Best of luck to all of you.


  1. The before-and-after change, while encouraging, serves as an important record (and warning) to others. Otherwise, it would be tempting to set it all down to "it wasn't so bad." That is exactly what the Law School Cartel wants.

    The anger was/is real, the financial pressure was/is real, and the affect on family was/is real. This is the additional risk that non-trads run, to say nothing of folks just starting their lives. It's important for people to know this.

    That said, I'm glad you are seeing some light on the other side. I am too, and my blood pressure has gone down some, but the effects still linger.

    And I still wad up and throw away every letter from my law school looking for donations. They got plenty from me already.

  2. You are paying down the debt. I am not. IBR can eat the debt.
