There have been so many changes recently for the Potters. Not only did we move into a house with the Wilson's but Mr. P graduates law school this weekend. We are both so excited for the end of law school. What is most exciting is the change this will bring for us. We met and began dating in college. Mr. P proposed a month after graduation and started law school a month later. We got married the summer after 1L year. Up until this point our lives together have been very involved in school. There has always been homework, studying, papers, school loans and so on. In the near future Chris will still have to study for the bar exam which he takes late in July. After his exam we are going on a trip to South America and when we come home it will be a huge adjustment for him. We will be in whole new waters. Like most graduating law students this year Mr. P doesn't have a job lined up. But unlike most, he has a plan. He is thinking about starting his own immigration firm. There is a huge need for immigration lawyers, especially where we live. It is obviously somewhat of a risk to go into your own practice, especially fresh out of school. However we both feel strongly now is the time to take risks like this. While hundreds of law school graduates in Oregon will be flooding the already over saturated job market looking for that stable pay check Mr. P will be building something for our future. I am so proud of my husband and I look forward to a weekend of celebrating him and his hard work and accomplishments.
