February 16th, 2011The struggle with night classes? I’m well into hour thirteen of being awake, and I am only halfway through my school day.  I was up at 6:30am to work on my Criminal Law “Writing Across the Curriculum” paper, left the house at 8am…and I haven’t been home yet! Between my paper, reading for class, and a mini moot court practice session to prepare for and attend, I had a busy day. I just got out of crimlaw at 7:30pm, and now ...

February 8th, 2011Wow. What an emotional week it was. Last week was a pretty rough week, some good things, some bad, and quite a roller coaster of emotions. I had my moot court brief due on Friday, and my first draft of law review due on Sunday, so I had all of that hanging over my head throughout the week. My great grandmother passed away last week. I had two days off from classes. I got into a fender bender on my way to school.  I found o...

February 1st, 2011Oh no! It’s a snowpacaylpse!  It is 7:11pm on Tuesday, and I’m not sure if I believe the hype about all of this snow…but, yeah, it’s 7:11pm on a Tuesday, and I’m at Panera with a hot bowl of soup instead of in class. I’ll take it. I’ve been a student with the University of Detroit Mercy for five and a half years, and for the first time (with the exception of once, when the University closed over winter break…who cares then...

January 29th, 2011Three weeks down…  This was a trying week for me. I have a lot going on: moot court, law review, classes, internship applications…plus worrying about my first semester grades that I was not-so-patiently waiting for. All of this pressure seemed to just pile on throughout the week, and on Thursday morning, it took everything in me not to burst into tears.  Fortunately, as the day went on, things improved, to the point ...

January 23th, 2011Yeesh. Just a little busy…  This semester is going to be my most challenging one, probably of my law school career. I am taking seventeen credits this semester, which was definitely not the plan…it just ended up that way with all of the classes/co-curriculars that I wanted to take. (The max is generally sixteen credits, but I was able to request a waiver of this limitation so that I would still be able to get credit for th...

January 10th, 2011Look! We have pretty, new classrooms!   If any of you have toured our school previously, and are still waffling on whether we’re the right place for you, I recommend coming by and checking out some of our new changes. I had class in one of our newly renovated classrooms today, and I was amazed at the transformation! I mean, when it comes down to things, a law school is much more than a building, but a nice building ce...

January 5th, 2011If there is such a thing as there being crunch time during Christmas break, this would be it.  Today, I made the trip to school (of course it starts snowing right when I get here…) to take care of some last minute sorts of things. The building is a complete construction zone right now; I guess the crews are all feeling the “crunch”  too with only a few days until the school is swarming with students again. I can’t wait...

January 4th, 2011Not yet back to classes, but definitely back to schoolwork.   I’ve had a pretty fun break, spent a lot of time with family and friends, gotten some stuff done around the house…and now it’s hitting me that I really haven’t done much with any of my law review or moot court stuff this break. I’m planning to spend the next week working on my law review research (I have until February 6 to complete my first draft…only 30 pa...

December 23rd, 2010Done. Done! DONE!  Yippee! I am done for the semester…which means I am halfway through my law school career!  Funny though, if anything, I’ve been busier during my “break” than I was during the semester! A lot of my friends from high school are in graduate and professional school out of state, so I’ve had a pretty rich social life over the past few days. I’ve also been doing the whole Christmas thing: putting u...

December 12th, 2010I’m so close to being done…just one more final, and one take-home!! It’s been quite an interesting week.  This past week, I had a bad sinus infection for which I was prescribed antibiotics that gave made me feel nauseated for five days. That was a pretty sucky five days…but my antibiotics ritual is now over, my sinuses are less angry, and life is better.  On Friday was my first final exam, evidence. As I was sitting...
