August 13, 2018. A Monday. The first day of my 2L year.
I walked into my first day of labor law and sat down in a room full of people I didn’t wanna be in. When I was asked to introduce myself, I said my name was Mia and that the second I graduate from law school, I’m moving back to New Jersey. I remember getting a laugh and being like “but guys, I’m serious.” August 14, 2018. The next day.
I walked into my only class of the day, Professional Responsibilities, and sat down once again in a room full of people I didn’t want to be in. Our professor told us that he’d be putting us into small groups for activities for the semester and ‘warned’ us that last year, two of the students he paired up ended up together and are still dating a year later. He said that if we were single to ‘watch out’ because he might do it again. I remember thinking “okay professor, I dare you, find my future husband.”
I had no idea it would actually work. Two classes later, when we were given our groups, one of my group members was @calmorris18
Little did I know that I was gonna fall in love with my group partner, too. I never imagined in a million years that when I thought ‘maybe I’ll find my husband in this room’, that it would actually happen.
Maybe we barely spoke for the next month and a half, but in the very last days of September, something just happened.
September 27, 2018. A Friday, the Halloween Bar Review.
The Tuesday before the Bar Review, I asked Cal if he was going, and he said maybe, even though he had only been to one bar review almost 2 years ago.
Two days later, after class Thursday night, he messaged me on Facebook, saying that he thought he had my number from our group, but didn’t, and wanted to get it so he could text me if he ended up at the bar review.
On Friday, he invited me to hang out with his friends before the Bar Review, but I already had plans with my roommate. I told him I’d see him there, and he said okay. Later that Friday night, I went to the Bar Review with my roommate and some friends, and as per usual, got involved talking to someone who kinda scared me. TO BE CONTINUED........
