March 4th, 2011Between work, school, and the Veterans clinic, I’ve been so busy that I’ve only been able get about 3 hours of sleep a night.  Unfortunately, I still do not have enough time to get everything done. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to handle this; I know I really need to get a good night of rest. I’d love to get 6 hours of sleep; in fact, I think it would be the best feeling ever. Instead, I’m trying to figure out if there is a...

February 19th, 2011Spring Break! Although I’m not going anywhere exotic, I am ecstatic about not having classes next week. This is going to be my catch-up week.  This morning I met my Keenan Appellate Advocacy competition teammate up at the Oakland County court house to practice our oral arguments.  Every single time I get up to argue, I get this amazing adrenaline rush.  I’ve mentioned before that I was a dancer most of my life. ...

February 6th, 2011Barrister’s Ball Last night was the annual Barrister’s Ball, more casually known as law school prom.  This year we had it at Motor City Casino.  The venue was really beautiful, and with dinner and an open bar, who couldn’t have a good time? This is one event you never want to miss. It’s always a guaranteed successful night. It was a great break from studying, working, and just legal thinking in general! Unfortunately...

January 30th, 2011Snow Storm…Friend or Foe? This Tuesday night/Wednesday morning we’re supposed to get a brutal snow storm. My initial thoughts to this were not nice ones. I have class on Tuesday night until 10PM, and then must return to school Wednesday morning by 8:30AM for my clinic. In a bad snow storm, by the time I get home Tuesday night, I will have to turn around to get back to school on time Wednesday morning. But then…an email changed ...

January 24th, 2011What kind of car do you drive? An attorney told me the other day that people will measure your success by the kind of car you drive. He continued, “When you’re meeting a client and you pull up in an old crappy car, how much faith do you think that client will have in you?” Thank God I’m still in law school because I doubt my 2002 Ford Escape would impress any potential client. I guess I know what my first big purchase is g...

January 17th, 2011MLK Day Although school was technically closed, I spent MLK Day working in the Veteran’s Clinic. Even though I was there for almost 9 hours, I can’t believe how fast the day flew by! I was able to talk with a couple of my clients, and really start working on the files. A couple of highlights for this week: Wednesday- The monthly SBA meeting will take place this Wednesday. We haven’t had one since before finals, so it’ll proba...

January 12th, 2011Yesterday we got hit with a ton of snow which seemed to never stop coming. I didn’t even know we were expecting snow; it was quite the shock when I got out of class at 10 last night and had to dig my car out. It took me almost an hour to get home, so I knew I was going to have to wake up extra early this morning to make it back to school by 8:30 for my Veteran’s Clinic office hours. I set my alarm for 5:45…it was brutal. The dri...

January 9th, 2010I’ve got a great feeling about 2011! I know it sounds silly, but I’m so excited about the New Year. This semester is going to be my craziest, most challenging semester to date, but I couldn’t be more excited! I absolutely love filling up 16 hours every day…and no, I’m not being sarcastic! Call me insane, but being so busy gives me this constant adrenaline rush. I would lose my mind sitting around the house, not having anything t...

December 21st, 2010Officially halfway done with law school! My last final was December 14th, but it always seems to take me a couple days to relax. Of course, there is the initial celebration, but then there are usually 20 things that have to get done quickly because I had put them off for the past month focusing on finals. I’ve finally reached my relaxation time. This morning I worked, but this afternoon I’ve had absolutely nothing to do for th...

December 9th, 20103 down, 1 to go! International Human Rights Seminar Paper- check! Real Estate Transactions final- check! Environmental Law final- check! I’m going to be honest…I’m a little burnt out at this point, but I’m so close to being done! I just finished my environmental law final about an hour ago and, luckily, it wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be. It was my first exam that I had to take at the hotel down the street. Our school ...
