Best Summer Ever Week 15: Prelude to 3L Fall Semester

September 6, 2010

Law school orientation dominated the past week.

I was an orientation leader and spent the majority of my week convincing 1Ls that they can survive their first year of law school without being crazy. I also squeezed in some hours at the office, a movie, and even went to the Minnesota State Fair with Alesus.

It was my first time at the fair. I went primarily because the state fair is the only place I can buy Shoe MGK cleaner for my tacky white Aldo shoes. I also wanted to try camel on a stick.

Apparently the camel-sellers left the fair early, but I managed to buy the shoe cleaner, which was a life changing experience.

The Minnesota State Fair was surprisingly fun and great people watching.

There were cows:
