A few people have asked about my location.
I’ve actually deliberately kept that out of my blog here for a reason. About a year ago, a ‘colleague’ found my personal journal. They left a vicious comment, when I was feeling particularly vulnerable, and I was deeply hurt. It’s a bit easier for me to maintain my anonymity if I don’t mention where I’m from, or what law school I attend (only a bit, but still, every bit helps).
If you have a particular reason for wanting to know where I am, please feel free to message me and ask! If I don’t feel comfortable telling you, please please please, don’t take it personally.
In complete honesty, most people who know me ‘in real life’ do NOT know about this journal. Why? Because the kind of vulnerability and honesty that I present here is something that is I do not want to be seen by my classmates. The law is a close-knit, small community, and it’s also a fairly vicious group. The social atmosphere in a law school is very similar to a high school, and I’m sure all of you can imagine what would have happened to someone who spoke as I do at a high school.
So, if you do know where I’m from, I trust you not to spill it. Thanks.
