29 year-old male from San Antonio, TX Law Student at St. Mary's University in San Antonio. I am from Arlington, Texas but Austin has been my favorite city to live in so far. I was in the work force for 4 years between finishing Undergrad and starting law school and I think it was helpful in terms of improving my study ethic.
I'm oldI'm in my last year of law school and I'm almost 30. I was walking through the main campus, venturing out of the law school corner, to get to the registrar's office. I'm about 8-10 years older than everyone in that part of campus. I walked passed a group of students giving away free hugs. 5 - 10 years ago I'd have been all about free hugs. I'd have wanted group hugs I"d have been picking people up and carrying them around. Today, I tried to avoid eye contact and smiled uncomfortably when they aimed their free hug solicitation at me.
I walked away thinking, has law school made me this way or is this just a shitty side effect of growing up.
