“My dad wasn’t the happiest considering I was out of the house for two weeks and didn’t come straight home to see everyone,” the lawyer explained with a laugh. “I thought maybe I’d surprise him and it would negate the fact that he’s mad at me. It helped a little. I still have my lecture, so there is a video I will post.”
