February 3, 2019 – Rule of Law (OOTD #448)

For a prospective law student, I hardly ever stumble into Notre Dame’s law school.

One explanation might be that in truth, I’d really rather not go to law school here. I’ve loved my time at Notre Dame, and I’m very grateful for the four years that I’ll have here — but I don’t want those four years to last any longer than they have to. I don’t want to be what ND students call a “Double Domer,” or someone who does both their undergraduate and graduate studies at Notre Dame.

I’ve got nothing against ND’s law school — I’m pretty sure they’ve got a good program, and if they accepted me, I’d be a fool not to at least consider it. In fact, I probably will still apply (mostly out of convenience and the hopes that having done my undergraduate studies here, I’ll get extra points in the admissions review), but like I said, I hope I don’t actually have to stay here for law school. Four years of Northern Indiana weather and the general lack of anything to do in South Bend but service work is enough for me.

Since I’m hoping to not end up attending Notre Dame’s law school as a student, I decided to venture inside for the very first time. I was actually drawn in by the library — there were a few books I wanted to look into for a paper, and it turned out they could only be found at the Kresage Law Library.

I’d always been a little afraid of the law school. I’m just an undergraduate, of course, and I thought I’d stick out as gawky and awkward to the older students. And maybe I did — I don’t know. But if there’s anything this fashion blog has taught me, it’s how to ignore bouts of minor social anxiety and the feeling of being watched in order to get a task done. Whether I looked like a stupid, confused undergraduate wandering around the halls of the law school alone or not, I managed to find the books I was looking for — and get some OOTD pics for this blog.

Two birds in one stone. I win.

That’s about it for today. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame. Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, BloglovinTwitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!
