Trevor graduated from BYU Law School back in April, which honestly, in retrospect seems like some sick joke. I mean, why do they celebrate something that isn't really "done" yet? If you are wondering where my bitter attitude is from, it would be that this whole summer Trevor has been overwhelmed with studying for the bar. Trevor, unfortunately and fortunately, has been working for a firm since before he graduated. He loves his job, but working full time while trying to study for the bar is no walk in the park.
I have watched him go to work all day, come home, and pour what little energy he has left into studying until we go to bed. It was disheartening to watch. I wished there was a way I could do some of it for him! But all of this was on him. He decided to take the month of July off to just study. Since he was behind from working full time he would wake up and spend the whole day in the office studying until dinner. Then after dinner go right back to studying before bed. I can't tell you how much it means for me to see him work so hard. He isn't just doing this for himself, and that is never lost on me.
The last three years have been miserable at times, and amazing at others. The law school experience married comes with it's challenges, but I am grateful for them. They created a deeper bond between us and solidified the fact that we are in this together, a team. There isn't much more comforting in this world then knowing you love someone, they love you, and you are together no matter what. Feeling really grateful for such a strong companion in my life!
Life this past week has already been drastically different! I am so happy to have more time with my husband again. Since the LSAT studying started Trevor's spare time has been full of studying, internships, etc. Life lately has been AWESOME! I forgot what it was like to have him available so much. We are both pretty excited about it :) CHEERS!
