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...

October 13th, 2010It feels like winter this morning, two days ago it felt like summer, where did Fall go? I hope we’re not going to skip right over that season! The only good thing about having a long drive to school is that my car gets nice and toasty. In high school I lived so close to school I was still frozen by the time I got there. There’s a guest speaker later today at school that I plan to go see. He’s an international human rights attor...

October 6th, 2010It’s always something… I wouldn’t say that I’m an accident prone person, but I will say that I am a person who gets herself in situations where it makes people usually respond with “how? Wait what? I swear…only you Ashley…”  I have a class canceled tomorrow which I am ecstatic about; however, I’ll be spending the free time in the doctor’s office. Let me share with you why…. About a month ago I woke up with pink swollen itc...

October 4th, 2010I don’t know if everyone would agree, but so far this semester I have found it to be significantly easier than first year. Well, I should rephrase that; if I weren’t working, I would find this semester to be significantly easier than last year. I did take a summer class so my load isn’t quite as heavy as it would be otherwise, but still I feel if I wasn’t working I’d have plenty of time to stay on top of everything in all of my c...

September 30th, 2010Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Thirty years ago my parents started dating and twenty six years ago they got married. It truly is an accomplishment nowadays; it’s not too often that you see people staying together that long anymore and still be happy! Today we had our second 2L board meeting of the year. We’re planning to volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club this semester and at Children’s Hospital.  In addition, we’re h...

September 26th, 2010I made the drive downtown this weekend to study at school for a change of pace and after I get there I discover the internet is down and won’t be fixed any time soon. What a wasted trip downtown! Since I was already downtown, I went and studied at Wayne State’s Medical School.   My weekend consisting of babysitting, studying, cooking, cleaning, laundry and catching up on some much needed sleep! I’m sad how quickly th...

September 20th, 2010There’s not a lot going on today, so this will be short and sweet. It was nearly impossible to get out of bed this morning; Mondays are always tough, but this was exceptionally hard. My weekend was pretty boring and consisted mostly of studying which is exactly what I needed. Mondays are my long days so I’m just trying to make it through; my big plans tonight consist of going to the grocery store, woo! I know, I live a wild an...

September 16th, 2010TGIF…tomorrow My week started out rough, to say the least. On Monday I woke up at 5:30 am with my eyes literally sealed shut. I called an urgent care hoping it would be open at 6 so I could make it there before heading to school. Unfortunately, the message said it wouldn’t be open until ten so I was forced to go to school looking and feeling like a baby bird that’s just busted out of its egg. I knew I was going to go to an Ur...

September 13th, 2010My weekend in a nutshell: Friday: Worked over 9 hours then babysat at night (it’s nice because after the kids go to bed I can study) Saturday: In the morning I went on a Preservation Detroit Tour which consisted of walking around Detroit for two hours learning about the history of old buildings and how the city has evolved over the past 100 years or more. It was fascinating to hear the history.  I’ve lived in metro Det...
