10 Legally Blonde Quotes To Get You Though Your Law Degree

Elle Woods is an icon and a beacon of light in this cruel, cruel world. We need her words of wisdom to keep us going.

*Blasts "Legally Blonde the Musical" soundtrack as I write this*

1.  Warner:  "You got into Harvard Law?"    Elle: "What? Like, it's hard?"


A classic. Leave it to Elle to be so nonchalant over getting into HARVARD. I strive to be as classy as she is. A true queen.

2.  "I feel comfortable using legal jargon in everyday life. (catcalls) I object!"  -- Elle


Me, coming up for air from writing a case brief.

3.  "Paulette, I taught Bruiser to shop online, I think I can handle congress."  -- Elle


Give me this confidence. Also.... how?

Maybe you should switch your focus to Animal Behavior because, wow.

4.  "Do you think she woke up one morning and said: I think I'll go to law school today?" -- Professor Callahan


I mean, yes. But like, so did I. I feel so personally attacked.

5.  "Elle, we came to see your trial and look! There’s like a judge and everything… and jury people."  -- Serena


Me, anytime I observe actual court.

6.  "I once had to judge a tighty-whitey contest for Lambda Kappa Pi. Trust me, I can handle anything.  -- Elle


Yes queen. Don't worry, law doesn't even compare to judging a tighty-whitey contest.

7.  "If I’m going to be a partner in a law firm by the time I’m 30, I’m going to need a boyfriend who’s not such a bonehead.” -- Elle


You remember she said this in rebuttal to Warner's: "Elle, if I'm gonna be a senator by the time I'm 30, I need to marry a Jackie, not a Marilyn."

TAKE THAT WARNER. You actual piece of poop. You left little miss Elle Woods in the dust and then came crawling back to her when she showed. you. up. Boy, bye.

8.  "Except when I dress up as a frigid bitch, I try not to look so constipated."  -- Elle


Get. Her.

Gotta love a little girl drama. And after all the shade Vivian threw, I was so happy Elle snuck this backhanded comment so nonchalantly in there. It just shows you can be tolerant of crap but still demand respect-- which is a constant reminder that we all need to be like Elle.

9. "If you're going to let one stupid prick ruin your life, you're not the girl I thought you were."  -- Professor Stromwell


Peep Professor McGonagall-- I mean Professor Stromwell. There's going to be jerks all throughout your life and your career. Don't let them make you feel like less of a woman-- or less of a person-- for being your true, authentic self.

10.  "You must always have faith in people. And most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself."  -- Elle


Cue the tears.

Thank you, Elle. For helping me realize my worth-- not just as a woman in a male-dominated industry-- but as a person who deserves respect, and who can do anything she sets her mind to.

Reese Witherspoon, please reprise your roll in Legally Blonde 3 so Elle can keep showing women just how incredible they are. And because I selfishly want to see another Legally Blonde movie in my lifetime.

See ya in 2020, Elle!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
