小北的不老歌

Gun-jumping

I realized I may have jumped the gun by mentioning the closing of this blog yesterday. My graduation ceremony is this weekend, and I hope to close the blog shortly thereafter. My dear readers, please don’t all run away after yesterday’s post…

Ping has also jumped the gun on celebrating Anna’s 3rd birthday with her gang at the daycare a couple days early, but Anna didn’t seem to mind. She will have another birthday cake once she gets to Ann Arbor this weekend, and as far as I can tell it’s “the more the merrier” for her when it comes to cakes and birthday parties.

Also in the news, I just found out today that the law school named me as the recipient of an award for having made the “greatest contribution” to the Law Review in the past two years. That made me pretty happy, despite all my worsening allergy symptoms.

Speaking of the law review, quite a few graduating editors of the journal recently mentioned to me how much they’ve enjoyed reading my book review criticizing all the China-bashing that’s been going on lately. I secretly thought that if my arguments could persuade and somehow influence them—America’s future appellate clerks, career diplomats, political leaders, policy makers—even if only marginally, so that they will think twice before jumping onto the China-bashing bandwagon because there was this Chinese classmate of theirs who presented a counter-argument they could relate to, then that will be the contribution that I take the most pride in.

“Senior Day,” as the graduation ceremony is called here at the law school, is this Saturday.

    代祝小安娜生日快乐。

    Have some local honey. It will help drive away the allergy. At least it worked one me. 🙂

    Littlenorth-
    I’ve been following all your blog entries since 2006 (or maybe 2005), when I found that essay by Damao on LSAT prep on your blog. I think I owe u a debt of gratitude, for I’ve learned a lot from you. And it’s kind of sad that u will being closing this blog, because I feel like I’m losing a good friend…
    Anyway, 天下没有不散的宴席,best of luck to all your future endeavors and all my best to ur family.

    Congratulations! Can’t believe it has been already more than 3 years. Look forward to meet you, Ping, and Anna again in NYC. I owe you a dinner, remember. btw, we have just moved to White Plains, 30 min north to NYC.
