March 4th, 2010Already Thursday!  Today is a late babysitting sort of day. I’m usually done on Thursdays by 6:15pm, but it’s looking more like 9pm tonight. I just finished making a gourmet meal of chicken nuggets, rice and strawberries (as always, I am so thankful for their simple tastes), and now they are off playing by themselves as though I don’t exist. I suppose it’s a good time to update my blog.  It’s been a pretty fast moving w...

March 3rd, 2010Do you ever have those days where you question every decision you’ve ever made? Where you look around and wonder how on earth you ended up there? Yeah, if you answered no, please tell me how you do it!  I think it is probably a result of my search for a summer externship, but over the past couple days, I have really been freaking out about my choice to go to law school as opposed to pursuing other options like grad school or ...

February 26th, 2010Today was museum day. I went to visit a manuscript museum and the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site.  The manuscript museum was rather a waste of time. It was apparently voted the best non-art museum in Buffalo by some magazine…but I was not impressed. About half of the museum was devoted to the establishment of the Boy Scouts, and the other half had some obscure documents about the Great Depression and ...

February 24th, 2010Greetings from the Buffalo Law Library. I have done it; I have successfully made my way throughout the building without anyone suspecting that I was an imposter. (Mind you, it helped that I visited this school during my decision-making process…)  My philosophy towards law school selection was: a building is a building. I wouldn’t be at UDM if I didn’t honestly believe that. This building is definitely spiffy, but there’s ...

February 23rd, 2010We interrupt this regularly scheduled blog to bring you…spring break!  Yeah, yeah, I know Michigan is coated in several inches of snow and that February really cannot be considered “spring.” We DO finish our finals at the end of April though, so I guess we are at the midway point of the semester…a nice time for a break.  I am posting to you this week from the oh, so tropical location of Buffalo, New York. One of my ...

February 21st, 2010Well, that’s that. I just submitted my final brief for ALTA. The past two months of my life have been spent working on this assignment that culminates in a clicking of the “submit” button…so anticlimactic. Not even a “congratulations Meagan!” from the submission page, just “Your assignment has been submitted.” Oh well, completion of my ALTA assignment officially marks the start of my SPRING BREAK(!), which means ...

February 18th, 2010One day to go…  I was able to get a little bit of my ALTA accomplished last night. I have stuff I want to include in my paper written on random pieces of paper, highlighted in cases and my stack o’ research was incredibly sloppy and nonsensical. I was able to get my thoughts incorporated into the appropriate parts of my paper…now those thoughts just need to actually be written.  I should have plenty of opportun...

February 17th, 2010Gah, I don’t like the dentist. I went in for a filling this morning and from start to finish, the whole experience was miserable. I think the numbing is finally starting to wear off…it only took about three hours…  On the plus side, it’s already Wednesday. I have two classes today, two tomorrow and one class (where we will have a guest speaker) on Friday. That is all that stands between me and my spring break! (Mind you...

February 14th, 2010What a busy weekend!  On Friday, after classes, a few of the 1Ls from the St. Thomas More Society went to the church next door to help lift Christmas trees into the choir loft (all sixteen of them!); it was quite the undertaking. That evening, I went to see “Valentine’s Day” (which I really enjoyed) with my mom and sister and went to bed early so that I would be well-rested for my Saturday.  On Saturday morning...

February 11th, 2010Thursday, only one day to go!  Today is another weird day. I had contracts in the morning at 9am, and now I am waiting for my ALTA conference at 2pm. Just a bit of a break…  My big concern of the day? My back. As I have started bring my computer with me to school more and more regularly, my backpack has become increasingly heavy and my back is definitely taking notice, responding with back pain, headaches, even dizz...
