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 ...

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...
