Hello! I just began the MELP program here at VLS this fall and cannot believe that we’re nearing the end of the first semester already! With finals fast approaching, most of the MELPS, myself included, have been spending some quality time with the VLS library. However, the Thanksgiving holiday has been a nice little break!

The MELPs staying here in South Royalton for the holiday put together a potluck Thanksgiving dinner, which was a really great time. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce- the whole traditional feast. But try as we may to avoid dinner discussion about classes, we were unable to completely avoid the subject. I guess that’s inevitable when you’re a grad student and have dinner with the people in all of your classes! This actually goes to show some of the things I really like about the MELP program, though- you really get to know everyone, and because you’re in a lot of the same classes, you’re able to support each other and study together. This is especially nice for the classes we’re taking with second and third year law students. Back to Thanksgiving, though. Dinner was terrific (props to the MELP who managed to cook a turkey, I was not so ambitious and stuck to green beans), and it was great to be able to spend the holiday with friends since we weren’t able to be with our families.

Oh, by the way, we just had a bit of snowfall in South Royalton this weekend! Nothing that really lasted, but it was quite beautiful as it was coming down. Hopefully any major snowfall will wait until after I make my 6-hour drive home to Maine after finals!
