Hello again…  I hope everyone has had and enjoyable and relaxing holiday.   Our holiday break was wonderful, albeit short. I reserved myself plenty of time to relax and attempt to not think about school, time to have fun with friends…and before I realized it, it was three days before back-to-school and I realized that practically nothing had been crossed off my “winter break to-do list.” That last weekend of break was just a bit hecti...

Well, that’s that.   I just got home from completing my first final, torts. It was a long four hours…but I think I did well. Now it’s time to play the waiting game (as you may have noticed, everything about law school includes waiting games, from the LSAT and applications, all the way to waiting for Bar results) and try not to worry about it. There are more important things to worry about at the moment…namely property law.   I feel so...

There seriously is not enough time in a day.  Yesterday, I went to campus for a contracts review session in the morning and then a few of us from the St. Thomas More Society helped with the Christmas trees at the church next door. I don’t think any of us anticipated that would entail using rope to lower tree parts down from the old choir loft! Then, we had to figure out which tree pieces fit together…for all 16 trees! It was kind of crazy, ...

Time management is a life skill that spills over into law school, exams, and eventually the practice.     Before starting law school I was a procrastinator -- not any more.  Law school has no place for people dragging their feet.   It's all about self discipline and good habits.  This academic environment has taught me a lot about myself.  One thing that remains constant is that although my efficiency and ...

Another Monday…our last Monday of the semester!  This week, we have only three days of classes. Under ordinary circumstances, this would be cause for celebration. However, this means that there is about a week until Final #1. Yikes.  Today, I got to school early…to do homework. What else is new? At 11:30, I took an hour-long property practice exam. We will be discussing it at our review session on Thursday, so we’ll see how it goes. A...

After recently contemplating whether I made the correct decision to attend law school, I turned to a dear friend and mentor for advice.  I was reminded that law school is challenging for anyone.  This challenge, however, is increased when raising a family, working during the day, and attending law school at night.   It's all a juggling act for me.  Most evening law students have many equally important tasks that must be a...

So this weekend was supposed to be major catch-up weekend where I was going to have all sorts of time to really get myself prepared for finals. Maybe I was a bit overoptimistic… Wednesday, I did stay after to finish watching the BarBri contracts video and then spent some time working on my torts reading for Monday…but that evening was spent with friends who go to school out of state who were home for the holiday. Thanksgiving was the day that I...

So now that the studying is really picking up, I will probably be posting less frequently… Today, I had my contracts class and a civil procedure review session. I think this was our last regular review session of the semester and then we have our final exam review next week sometime. After that, I went to babysit and finished earlier than usual. I took that opportunity to finally get my oil changed and take a trip to the bank. I never thought I...

Short blog post today because I’m fighting off an ear infection, and it’s accompanied by a nasty headache. Today was actually a pretty fun day in law school. The morning started with watching the contract video in the library with friends of mine from another section. I then sold Turkey Tokens (I am also a member of the St. Thomas More Society) in the atrium for an hour and then headed to…my last civil procedure class of the semester! Although t...

*sigh* Another weekend bites the dust… Today, I woke up at nine, ate some breakfast and hit the books. Last night, I stayed up late working on my torts outline, and it is looking pretty complete. Today, my focus has been on my property outline; it’s definitely a work in progress. (I decided the most logical way to go about outlining was to do them in order of when my finals were…) While I know I won’t have some semblance of an outline for each...
