About Me and This Page

Hello world! Hello beyond as well, I suppose. That would be flattering. My name is Destiny Rose Murphy. I'm 19 years old and currently living in New York City, where I just moved! Right now I'm focused on decorating my apartment before work begins in the fall. Earlier this year I graduated from Yale Law School, which I transferred to from Georgetown Law after my 1L year. For my undergraduate degree I majored in English, Political Science, and Philosophy, and minored in Public Policy and International Affairs at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

Last summer I was at the litigation firm Quinn Emanuel in New York City, and it was a mix of fantastic and exhausting. I made lots of friends and found out that I love living in the city, but I also missed out on working in person, and I didn't get a lot of the traditional firm summer experience. I'm heading back to Quinn soon, and I'm really hoping to jump right back into those friendships and to get to engage more with the work at the firm in person. In general, I'm also trying to keep up with a little bit of writing and reading where I can, in the hopes that I can attempt to publish an article or two while I'm at QE.

This blog began because I got my tonsils taken out. During recovery I realized there wasn't a lot of good advice to be found online for people who wanted to recover quickly and strongly. So, I decided to write an article intended to help others out. Then, (partially because sometimes when I can't sleep I write about things, and partially because I wanted to learn more about coding), I decided to expand the blog to everything else I think about. I hope you enjoy reading the stuff that I like to write, and, please, reach out if you have any questions or comments.
