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...

September 9th, 2010I made it to class on time today! Afterwards, we had the first community outreach committee meeting of the year. We’re embarking on a new project this fall which will take a bit of work to get off the ground but once it’s up and running I think it’ll be great. We’re going to send letters to different schools all around the city and see how many would be interested in us coming in and starting up a mock trial for interested stud...

September 8th, 2010I’ve become one of “them”       I woke up early this morning but still managed to be 15 minutes late for class. This has become a serious problem for me this semester. My entire life I’ve been the first student in the room ready and waiting for class to begin. Honestly, I was actually quite anal retentive about it and found it annoying when students would straggle in late. I would always think, “i...

September 5th, 2010What a beautiful weekend! We could not have asked for better weather for Labor Day weekend! I was so excited to feel that autumn chill in the air and I am even more excited about not having school on Monday. The next break after this isn’t until Thanksgiving so I’m gearing myself up for the long haul. My plans for today consist of going to the gym and homework, homework, homework. Of course, I slept in super late which felt a...

September 2nd, 2010I’ve officially put myself on a terrible schedule. Last night I was sleeping by 9:30 pm and was up at 4 am ready to start my day. I refused to get out of my bed until 5 then I wasted time on my computer, did some homework, then got ready for work. I got stuck in terrible traffic downtown today. I swear, if I didn’t know any better I would have thought I was in NYC. I was in standstill traffic and there was people walking every...

August 31st, 2010Well, I’m into the second week of classes and I feel as though I haven’t even had a second to breathe! I’m taking four classes this semester which doesn’t seem like a lot, but I’m also working 20 hours a week (the maximum we’re allowed to work while in school full time). The classes I’m taking this semester are: Real Estate Transactions, Environmental Law, Seminar in International Human Rights, and Criminal Procedure.  I am ...

August 23rd, 2010Tomorrow is the first day of class! Last week I was able to meet a group of new 1Ls as part of the new mentoring program. I wish they had this program last year when I started.  Oh well, at least it is implemented now. I don't have much to blog about today. I have just spent the day trying to start on some reading for my classes. I plan to blog more regularly again now that school is starting. I'm excited for the week to st...

August 16th, 2010MPRE So how did the MPRE go? Not at well as I had hoped.  It was so easy; it was hard…if that makes sense.  I will be so annoyed if I didn’t pass.  Yes, I am legitimately concerned that I didn’t pass!  Scores won’t be in for five weeks so for now I’m just going to forget about it. WCPO Internship This past Friday was my last day at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.  I was so sad to see my t...

August 3rd, 2010The MPRE is only three days away and I’m not sure if I’m prepared or not.  I've taken a few days off of work this week to study for it. I will be so happy when it is over. I will be sure to share my thoughts after it is done. Next week is my last week at the Wayne County prosecutor's office. I am sad to see my time there end but I am also excited for a new beginning this fall. In no time at all, classes will be starting.&nbs...
