November 19th, 2009Life throws crazy curve balls….I should have learned by now that planning things out can fail miserably at times because you just never know what life will throw your way. As I mentioned in my blog last night I had fallen asleep for a bit so I was planning to spend the rest of my night working on my memo. Shortly after submitting my blog, however, life threw a crazy curve ball my way. One of my immediate family members came hom...

November 18th, 2009The 2L class took on an “Adopt a family” project for Thanksgiving and the 1L class has decided to donate 4 baskets. I did all of the shopping for the baskets, now I just have to find the time to put them together! It feels good to help others out, even if it is just a small amount. I bought things for each family to have a Thanksgiving dinner plus scarves and hats to stay warm!I worked on property homework this morning and if f...

November 17th, 2009Today was an uneventful day in law school.  Woke up early, studied all day, went to a couple classes, studied some more and finally headed home.  The rest of the week will bring more exciting things.  I’m ready for bed! Tomorrow brings another long day…Email:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ...

November 16th, 2009Today was dedicated to working on my memo.  It was not a very exciting day.  One nice thing about our ALTA classes is that they all end this week!  It’s really great because that means one less class to worry about for finals.   When I would hear that law school was stressful I always assumed that would mean a lot of work, hard exams, and a lot more work.  Although that is all true, I didn’t reali...

November 15th, 2009I spent my entire Saturday downtown training teens the different roles of a court room.  It was a longgg day.  I have my final memo of the semester due this week so I’ll be busy working on that until this Friday!  I can’t believe it is Saturday night already. I feel like it’s still a weekday.  My entire day tomorrow is dedicated to homework. Oh the exciting life I lead…call me crazy but I love it!  I ha...

November 14th, 2009Stressed. This is about the third time this semester I’ve reached my “limit”.  The amount of stress I’m under today is almost unbearable.  It has been a crazy week and although it has been filled with some great experiences; I feel exhausted both physically and mentally.   The environmental law event last night at Honigman was amazing!  I was able to meet numerous lawyers in the field and have at leng...

November 13th, 2009Today has been insane! I’m actually writing this during my Westlaw training session because there is absolutely no other time to do so.  I have so much I want to share with you all today, but I don’t even have time to write about it! I promise tomorrow I’ll fill you in on my past couple crazy days.  After my training finishes, I have a meeting for the Community Outreach Committee I am on, then it’s off to the environm...

November 12th, 2009What a day!  In addition to the normal two classes I had today, I also had a Civil Procedure review session with our TA, West Law certification training, an SBA meeting, and attended a guest speaker from the University Of Notre Dame on the Separation of Church and State which the Federalist Society brought in for us.  For two of our classes, civil procedure and ALTA, we have TAs which hold extra review sessions and o...

November 11th, 2009Today was a very exciting day. My morning started by studying for my Property class with a couple of close friends I met here at UDM.  As I’m sure you’ve seen some of the other 1L bloggers talk about, the Rule Against Perpetuities is giving us quite the challenge.  After studying for a few hours I had to leave my friends to meet with my Applied Legal Theory Analysis (ALTA) professor.  In ALTA (our legal writing ...

November 10th, 2009My day started, as does every other day since I’ve started law school, at 6 am.  When my alarm went off I was completely shocked, it felt as though I had just put my head on the pillow.  A half hour later I am out the door and on my way downtown to school.  I spend my mornings reviewing material for my classes that day just in case I happen to get called on in class. Today was pretty low key, Civil Procedure in t...
