William C. Hubbard
Right now I would like everyone to take a deep breath. Ready? Breathe in. Let it out. Breathe in, let it out. I promise, I won't ask you to do yoga. Hopefully you are a bit more relaxed now than you were 10 seconds ago. Every little bit helps, and you’ve had quite a load on your shoulders the past three years. But today, today is a day that you can relax, a day to celebrate and enjoy.
Clearing your mind today is important, because law school is a time of stress. And while sometimes it can be motivating to work under pressure, if you're constantly stressed out, you don't always make the best decisions.
