Q&A with Huma Rashid: Part I

Law school can be awful. The workload. The pressure. The stress. It’s not always an easy path. However, the study of law does have some redeeming qualities. For me, the best part is the people I have gotten the chance to interact with through this journey. One of those is Huma Rashid, a wise-cracking, whip-smart law student living and studying in Chicago. Her blog, The Reasonably Prudent Law Student, never fails to amuse. (I highly recommending reading through her archives.) After I mentioned her blog back in September, we started talking through the Interwebz and I became obsessed. Yes, that’s right.

Huma Rashid is great to visit whether you’re in grad school or just looking for a place to find something to wear to work.  (Although she also did a nice Kanye post that I very much enjoyed. Especially the puppies part.) My favorite part of Huma’s blog is her Business Casual Superstar series. You give Huma a look and she’ll come back with an outfit under $100. Check out her snarky bit on finding clothes modeled after Megan Fox’s look.  (And here’s one for you, gents.) And if you’re a Twitterer, don’t check her Tweets out while you’re in class. You will laugh out loud. (On a sidenote, for the longest time, I thought her blog was “the reasonably prudish law student,” from which misreading I derived great amusement.)
