The one where I introduce you to the most amazing lawyer in the world

You are welcome. And you thought my blog was just a confusing jumble of yoga and running and ridiculous life stories like fake tanning my hands and taking road trips for four hours in the wrong direction.

Today’s post is about something much more important.

(Note: please prepare for much capitalisation in this post because really this is the only way to convey my extreme feelings on this subject).

Yesterday my sister officially became a LAWYER. I KNOW RIGHT?!?

You guys don’t mind if I brag do you? Cool cos it’s happening.

Not only is she probably the NICEST most generous person you will ever meet —> as a child if I said I liked one of her toys she would just give it to me, now she does the grown up version of taking me on epic adventures and generally spoiling me rotten.

OR is she the most supportive person ever —> when I was struggling with statistics in uni… (story of my life) she drove three hours just to help me with an assignment and then drove home the same day. Another time when my life was a complete hot mess she drove to see me just for a few hours after a huge day at work and then slept at my place before waking up at the crack of dawn to drive three hours to go to work again… YA. I have a million stories like this and while she might not always have gotten my harebrained life planning (eg. going overseas to study for two years or that time I randomly lived in a tent for three months ha) she has ALWAYS supported me in whatever makes me happy.

She is also the most hilarious person and I have a number of very interesting stories I could write on here but probably shouldn’t now that she is a lawyer and going to be all respectable and such. I will just state that her giggle is the most infectious thing in the world and leave it at that.

She can do any hairstyle in the world and tame my hair situation into submission which really is quite the accomplishment.

She also always stands up for the underdog and this is a very good quality in a lawyer I think.

NOT ONLY these things guys, her brain is a flipping planet. She has her degree in science AND in law and yesterday she was officially accepted into the lawyer community and they bowed down to her greatness. Okay so I actually wasn’t there which honestly is breaking my heart right now (somehow I couldn’t get assignment extensions based on I NEED to hold my sister’s hand and cry hysterically in joy for her on her special day) but that is what I assume happened. Because why wouldn’t they?


So, to sum up, free legal advice for all my blog besties okay? Hmm maybe should have run that one past my sis first ha. OKAY BYE!

PS: Also I really think we should set up some sort of dual clinic thingy where if I fail at doing effective couple’s therapy with people we can just send them next door to her office to kickstart the divorce proceedings… right? That is efficiency people.

Do you have siblings? Were you close as kids? – We were super close and would cry when the other one got hurt even if she wasn’t crying ha.

Do you know any lawyers? – I do and now I feel fancy. I bet that makes it worth the six billion years of study huh sis? 😉

Love statistics or hate it? – HATE HATE HATE

Who is one person who inspires you? – My beautiful sister 🙂

  2. I quit statistics before attending the first class, that’s how much I knew I would hate it. 😛
    Congrats to your sister!! Luckily we will see her again soon 🙂


  3. Haha I love this post about your sister! She sounds awesome and your relationship is so sweet. A HUGE congrats to her for finishing her law degree!


  4. Wow, so awesome for your sister! That’s a lot of hard work paying off. Good for her! Please explain about the wig though- I don’t think I’ve ever seen that done in the US! 🙂
    My brother is a pilot for Spirit airlines. He lives about an hour away, but we don’t really keep in touch. Such a great relationship you have with your sis! You are so lucky to have each other.


    • Thanks so much Lisa! It sure was a lot of work, doing the bar is CRAZY! Haha the wig thing is normal in law here, at the graduation ceremony. We follow the English system! That is pretty much all I know about it haha. It wasn’t just a stylin’ fashion choice 😉 Ooh that’s an exciting career! I would not have the stomach to be a pilot at all haha, I’m not the best flyer! Have a lovely day Lisa!
