February 6th, 2010It’s a gloomy Tuesday, and that seems to be reflected in the moods of my classmates. I think we’re all just tired and stressed out (it appears that no one else was very productive this past weekend either), some of us are dealing with allergies, and we are all just willing May 4 to arrive sooner. (Four weeks from today!)  Last night, my Contracts reading went by pretty quickly and then I rewarded myself with a seven and a ...

April 5th, 2010It’s a beautiful Monday…and here I am sitting inside. Of course, with the beautiful weather comes obnoxious, noisy behavior from my neighbors at all hours of the night. On any given night, I can hear expressway traffic and train whistles from my bedroom, and I can deal with a little noise. However, when you add loud cars, slamming doors and screaming teenagers between the hours of midnight and 3am…let’s just say I am not a happy c...

April 3rd, 2010Happy Easter everyone! Also, Chag Same'ach (Happy Passover)! It is a Saturday night, I just got home from church, and I just had my big moment of freak out. Tomorrow, Easter Sunday, April 4, marks the one month point. Yes, I have one month left of classes and exams, at which point I will have completed my first year of law school! Exciting? Most definitely. Terrifying? Absolutely.  I think the biggest fear for me i...

April 1st, 2010It’s beautiful outside!! I don’t know what it is, but I have been really productive this week. I’ve been really on top of my reading, had the chance to get outside and go biking and rollerblading, and I have been able to get really caught up on my sleep. The best part of the week? It’s Thursday, and my weekend starts after class today! Of course, I also have to babysit this afternoon, but I’m also planning on going to a drop-in t...

March 30th, 2010It’s Election Day at the law school. Today is the much anticipated SBA (Student Bar Association) executive board election. The stakes are pretty high: the President of the SBA gets a full scholarship, and the other officers receive some sort of scholarship as well. I haven’t seen this sort of campaigning since the Obama/McCain election…and maybe not even then. There was quite the disagreement this year about how SBA funds were al...

March 29th, 2010Monday again. I am not a Monday person.  On the plus side, we don’t have a lot of Mondays left in the school year…after we get through today, there are five Mondays left. The end is near. This weekend was a pretty good mix of productivity and fun. I had a contract due for ALTA on Sunday, so I put a few hours into that, did some reading for class today, caught up on some laundry, cleaned out my shower drain, did some grocery...

March 24th, 2010So this is what it means to be busy… We had our G. Mennen 1L moot court competition on Saturday. It was a long day, but I think generally enjoyable for everyone. I was honored to be one of the 34 students (out of about 280 first year students) selected to advance to the quarterfinals in the competition, as was my fellow blogger Ashley. Our reward for our hard work? We got to spend the next couple days preparing an argument for th...

March 18th, 2010Today is a day for kleenex, cough drops and juice boxes. I’ve been healthy all semester (which was a big deal for me!) and of course that all changes right when I really can’t afford to get sick. With law school, missing one class is enough to set you behind…as such, it takes a lot for most students to give themselves a sick day. Of course, when half of the class is coughing and blowing their noses…it’s no surprise when the o...

March 16th, 2010I write to you today from that dark state between utter exhaustion and just a bit too much caffeine.  Moot court is on Saturday, and the pressure is starting to build. I haven’t seen the 1Ls this worn out since last semester’s final exams. On one hand, I’m really excited about the oral advocacy competition, but on the other hand, I just want it to be over so that I can get some semblance of a life back.  Last night, af...

March 14th, 2010What a weird weekend. So our supply agreement assignment deadline got pushed back to Monday at 5pm. As a result, on Thursday night I ended up doing my reading for Friday before doing my supply agreement…and by the time I finished reading it was pushing 1am, I had been up for eighteen hours and I was going to bed. Friday, I got home from school and spent a couple hours clearing some shows off of my DVR. That evening, we went out ...
