Welcome to Durham


Today I arrived in Durham, NC. I promptly found a library and enquired about a library card (ID and a letter addressed to you in Durham), then moved in to my new abode, Open Air Camp, high above the banks of the Eno River. After I had everything unpacked, I set out on my next important task; exploring the area for prospective running routes. Fortunately, we're on the edge of Eno River State Park, and just down the hill and across the river is a lovely trail that wanders along the river bank for about four miles. I saw four deer, two squirrels, one rabbit, and one black and yellow snake. The welcoming committee was out in force!

Orientation for 1Ls at Duke Law School starts Tuesday, and classes begin in earnest on the 22nd. I'm a unsure of what to expect, but tentatively excited. At least I have a nice place to come home to :)

  6. It sounds like you have all the important things figured out. Seems I didn't see any mention of finding favorite study spots :-) Durham is a nice area and only a "short drive" from Southern.

  11. So, I've become very familiar with this trail over the last month--among many other things (the law library, harris teeter's bargain produce rack, the commerce clause...). I'm glad I have the opportunity to learn new things, and then for them to become familiar.
