Barely Blonde is a carefully curated compilation of outfits, accessories and travel adventures by me, Christine! I am currently in my third and final year of law school in San Antonio, Texas and planning a destination wedding for this August! While there is never enough time in my day to get everything done, I use this as my creative outlet and love all the people it connects me with!
Where are you from? I am from El Paso, Texas but I have lived in Orange County, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. I grew up in a bordertown and my father is Mexican so I feel lucky to have grown up in such a mixed culture.
How tall are you? I am 5’4″!
Why did you decide to go to law school? I knew I wanted to pursue higher education after receiving my bachelor’s but wasn’t exactly sure what that looked like. I took a year off to work and live in the “real world” before deciding a law degree was the best move. I was torn between business and the law and eventually reasoned a legal degree would encompass a lot of business and help me in whatever industry I decided to follow.
What is your advice to someone interested in going to law school? Commit to taking the LSAT and see how you feel at the end of it. It is a lot of discipline and I think the LSAT is a good test run for the endurance you’ll need to maintain in law school. Although the degree only takes 3 years, it is definitely a marathon not a sprint kind of deal.
