Riese’s Team Pick: It Gets Better In Law School, Sarah Says So

I know what you were thinking — is it still getting better? Are there more human beings in the world who want to encourage me that it will get better? Perhaps Managing Editor Sarah would like to tell me that it gets better, again? ‘Cause then it’s like double the better?


Actually, it is better because in the first one I was sitting next to Sarah, talking crazy about tumblr or something, and in this one, Sarah gets to shine like the ray of sunshine she is, talking about her feelings and the midwest as her hair blows in the breeze. Laneia and I will definitely have to harass her extra this week.

Plus, proof that the Internet is magic/creepy: Autostraddle’s It Gets Better video is in the top suggested videos for this one!

  1. The sentiment is monumental. The fact that no one believes anything gets better after law school enough to comment is hilarious.
