So this is the last post of this blog. I’ve always thought that this would be the one place where I share with my readers my darkest inner-self, and where I could ramble on and on about my should-haves and would-haves and miscellaneous blogger bloopers.

But that’s not going to happen now. In the past few days, I graduated from law school, drove home to Chicago, and made up for all the sleep that I lost in the past three years. In the next few weeks, I will go to Denver for a weekend trip in the Rocky Mountain National Park, get started on the bar prep course, and move to New York.

To me, law school has become a thing of the past—something that I wasn’t sure I could do but somehow managed to do; same goes for this blog—I had little idea that this thing could last 3.5 years when I began writing. I’ve thought about taking this blog offline entirely after this, but just like one can’t really erase things from the past, this blog has taken on a life of its own in the virtual space (thanks to google cache and the like), so I’ll leave it in place. Meanwhile, I will be less responsive to emails, but do send me a GMAIL (username littlenorth) if you have questions about law school (Michigan in particular), have a need for a (novice) business lawyer, are recruiting for the Chinese government (mofcom, fmprc, and csrc in particular), or just want to say hello.

Until our paths cross again,

    Dear littlenorth,

    I started reading your blog when I was searching for law school information. But it ended up giving me far more than what I orginally expected. Thanks for sharing this wonderful chapter of your life, it inspired me so much and will continue to every time I come back here.

    Maybe it takes long for our paths to cross again, yet I’ve learned from you that every day should work out for the better, in one way or another.

    Take care and all the best !
