May 18th, 2010Summer school starts back in less than a week and for some reason I don't feel like I've had any vacation (or me time).   There has been so much going on and I have not had a moments rest.  I thought that the conclusion of the spring semester would leave me time to rest on my hammock and enjoy Mother Nature – but my life hasn’t slowed down long enough to kick up my feet.   Since there hasn't been any R&R for me ...

April 29th, 2010Finals have started this week and there hasn’t been much time for anything else.  My last final is May 3rd and a paper due after that.  I will have a couple weeks off to enjoy life and take a deep sigh before summer school starts.  I am currently studying for my Constitutional Law final and there is so much information to know that I will amaze myself if I get all the information into my head bef...

April 2nd, 2010Finding balance.It felt good to have a Friday off and not having to get up at a set time.  This day was the first in a very long time that I was able to get up and tend to 'normal' things around the house.  We were able to start some spring cleaning.  Since most of my house is clean,  I have a clear head to get back hitting the books, outlining, charting, flash carding and etc.  Fin...

You plan, God sees ~ Judge Judy Hartsfield Since I started law school, I've been trying to figure out what area of law I will enjoy most and be most effective.  Some how I know that I will land where God wants me to.  My peers may snare at me for saying that I didn't want law school for the money I just feel that there is some greater purpose for me being here.  This journey is no easy feat, and law school (for a lack of ...

Days passing quickly – Each week I look up and it’s the weekend, after that, it's Monday and back to the grind. Sometimes I feel that there is always so much to do, presumably every law student feels that way.  Finals are right around the corner and will be knocking at the door pretty soon.  It's time now to start preparing and getting conditioned for exams.  But first – this weekend – I am going to take a step back and think ...

Counting my blessing on my birthday. There are so many things that I am thankful for today.  I have a great family, friends, peers, co-workers, mentors and a wealth of great people around me.  Some things money can't buy and I feel that God has blessed me with a lot.  I use my birthday to mark the new year for me to reflect and plan on moving forward.  This day I look back at how far I have come (too much for a single blo...

Today was parent teachers’ conference for my son, an 8th grade student.  Thankfully, Spring Break is this week and I didn’t have to miss school to attend conferences.  I am a full-time parent and the duty befalls me to assist my son in reaching self-actualization.  My past choices are always at the forefront of my mind as I mature and value the significance of doing things in order; develop individually then raise a family.  ...

Spring Break in the middle of winter. My calendar is all planned out with plenty of things that I need to accomplish while enjoying a week off from classes.  While it’s nice to get some down time I feel as though I cannot relax or else I’d drop the ball.  I need to keep a certain amount of stress on myself during the entire semester.  Otherwise it would be too difficult for a person as myself to get back in school mode when classe...

Create a positive sphere of influence!  I'm learning the importance of being around people who produce good / positive energy.  Surround yourself with positive people that have a can-do attitude.  This is essential when you have a hectic, non-stop schedule. When you are around likeminded people you help each other keep positive thoughts throughout the day.  I caution you, however, to steer clear of people that “juic...
