*Grumble*Monday*Grumble*  I am not a Monday girl. My day started off with a trip to the post office at 9am to ship my Torts Examples and Explanations book that I sold on Amazon. Torts? Been there, done that.  After that, I had to be at school for 10am for a group meeting for a project we are doing based on the book “A Civil Action.” That took a whole 25 minutes…and then I had to wait around until class at noon. I took the time to go t...

I made it to the weekend!  So the big news of the week? As of about 5:30pm yesterday (Friday), all of the first year grades were posted. It was a frustrating few weeks having to wait for them, and while I can’t speak for all of the 1L’s, for me it feels like a weight has been lifted. Cliché, yes…but so true. (Maybe that’s just because I ended up doing really well on the exam that I was honestly convinced would destroy my 1L GPA…)  I c...

Greetings from Room 244!  Today started off a bit disappointing because my Contracts professor was going to the same funeral as my ALTA professor, so we had a shortened class and did not get back our exams. It was pretty frustrating.  On the plus side, we only had an hour of class...and then I went out to lunch with some friends from another section. Now, I have an hour and a half until my St. Thomas More Society meeting and I am tryi...

Today was a pretty decent day.  I didn’t have class until noon, so I was able to sleep in, pick up some Panera on my way to school and then do some reading before Core Concepts. Between classes, I tried to get a financial aid problem resolved (the person I need to talk to should be in tomorrow; it’s really convenient to have our own financial aid office on the law campus, but in the first couple weeks of school, it gets pretty busy with eve...

It’s been a long day.  Tuesdays are long days for me. They start with 9am Contracts (which means I’m up at 7am), an hour break and then ALTA until 1pm. Starting next week, the wonderful Karen will be offering our CivPro review sessions from 1:30-2:30. This gives me exactly 30 minutes to get home, 5 minutes to drop off my school stuff and grab my property homework and then 10 minutes to get to my babysitting job. Then, I don’t get home again...

Happy MLK Jr. Day! In observance of MLK Day, we were treated to a three-day weekend! Although I didn’t get as much studying and reading done as I would have liked, I can’t deny that it was a productive weekend. My big task was to convert our spare bedroom into an office. We really do not have visitors that often, and we (okay, mostly I…) decided that the space would be much better used as a place for me to study. This involved moving out a lot ...

Hello again…  I hope everyone has had and enjoyable and relaxing holiday.   Our holiday break was wonderful, albeit short. I reserved myself plenty of time to relax and attempt to not think about school, time to have fun with friends…and before I realized it, it was three days before back-to-school and I realized that practically nothing had been crossed off my “winter break to-do list.” That last weekend of break was just a bit hecti...

Well, that’s that.   I just got home from completing my first final, torts. It was a long four hours…but I think I did well. Now it’s time to play the waiting game (as you may have noticed, everything about law school includes waiting games, from the LSAT and applications, all the way to waiting for Bar results) and try not to worry about it. There are more important things to worry about at the moment…namely property law.   I feel so...

There seriously is not enough time in a day.  Yesterday, I went to campus for a contracts review session in the morning and then a few of us from the St. Thomas More Society helped with the Christmas trees at the church next door. I don’t think any of us anticipated that would entail using rope to lower tree parts down from the old choir loft! Then, we had to figure out which tree pieces fit together…for all 16 trees! It was kind of crazy, ...

Another Monday…our last Monday of the semester!  This week, we have only three days of classes. Under ordinary circumstances, this would be cause for celebration. However, this means that there is about a week until Final #1. Yikes.  Today, I got to school early…to do homework. What else is new? At 11:30, I took an hour-long property practice exam. We will be discussing it at our review session on Thursday, so we’ll see how it goes. A...
