December 2nd, 2010First final of the semester in 4 days! There’s not a lot of exciting things going on right now. How exciting can life be when you’re spending 12 hours a day in a cubicle in the law library? Two weeks from today it will all be over and I can finally start Christmas shopping. It will also mark the halfway mark of my law school career. Time is flying! I don’t know how much I’ll be blogging the next two weeks, but I’ll definitely ...

November 26th, 2010Word Limit Reached! By the grace of God I finally reached the word limit on my seminar paper; now, I just have to make it superb, fix my citations (which will probably take hours), and turn this baby in by December 1st! I officially feel as though I am an expert on the topic; however, I don’t know how useful it will be to me ever again. How often does female circumcision come up in your day to day conversations? Ah, exactly. O...

November 22nd, 2010I learned yesterday that a friend from high school committed suicide. Of course, everyone is left wondering why? This person had an amazing personality and looks to kill...a whole life ahead, cut way too short. Since learning of this tragedy, I’ve been thinking a lot about my own life. Anyone can be taken from us in the blink of an eye, yet I’m continuously “too busy” for pretty much everyone and everything in my life. Law...

November 20th, 2010This past week was completely insane. I’m having a hard time even remembering everything that occurred. I’ll mention a couple of highlights. On Thursday, there was a Symposium on Bullying with 3 excellent speakers who did a great job addressing the recent escalation in bullying related suicides. Although it is difficult to squeeze in these sorts of extra events, they’re usually exceptional and worthwhile, so I do my best to fit...

November 15th, 2010Where did the weekend go? I was at school both Saturday and Sunday, so I guess that would explain why it feels as though there was absolutely no weekend at all. Today I have to give my presentation for my international human rights seminar on female genital surgery. Although my presentation is ready, my paper is not. Luckily, the paper is not due until December 1st, so I have some time before panic has to settle in for that. M...

November 10th, 2010I fell a bit behind in my classes a couple of weeks ago when I was trying to work on my seminar paper and I’m still trying to catch up. I swear, it does not matter how many hours I will work; I still won’t see even a small dent in the amount of work that needs to be done. Honestly, I’m becoming a little panicked! Sometimes, panic can be a good thing because that forces you to get into gear and put in as long of days as possible...

November 6th, 2010It’s already November! Where did the semester go? Final exams are quickly approaching and I am definitely not ready yet. I remember this time last year I was a complete mess. I was so nervous about outlines, exams, and the whole process I could barely think straight. I’ve talked to a couple of current 1Ls and they seem so calm, cool, and collected; I don’t get it! Either they put up an excellent front in an attempt to not let th...

October 28th, 2010Dessert with the Dean- Town Hall Meeting Yesterday the Dean of our school graciously took time out of his schedule to have a round table discussion with students.  The President of each class made a dessert for the student body (I made chocolate chip cookies) and we all gathered together in a casual, intimate setting with Dean Semple. He was the only administrator present so students could feel free to voice any concerns o...

October 25th, 2010While in law school, you’re required to take a seminar class and write a lengthy paper making an original argument. I chose to take my seminar class this semester (mostly because it was a class I was actually able to get into). Each semester different seminar topics are offered but the one I am in is International Human Rights. After much research, I decided to write my paper on female circumcision. I spent hours working on it t...
