Greetings from Room 244!  Today started off a bit disappointing because my Contracts professor was going to the same funeral as my ALTA professor, so we had a shortened class and did not get back our exams. It was pretty frustrating.  On the plus side, we only had an hour of class...and then I went out to lunch with some friends from another section. Now, I have an hour and a half until my St. Thomas More Society meeting and I am tryi...

Today was a pretty decent day.  I didn’t have class until noon, so I was able to sleep in, pick up some Panera on my way to school and then do some reading before Core Concepts. Between classes, I tried to get a financial aid problem resolved (the person I need to talk to should be in tomorrow; it’s really convenient to have our own financial aid office on the law campus, but in the first couple weeks of school, it gets pretty busy with eve...

Set aside family time. Friday is the best!  It’s a privilege to go straight home after work.  After a long week of work, and school I am exhausted.  Today is my only real down time.  Sometimes I wish I had more energy on Friday to get some homework done.  But, I don't.  So, I take advantage of being home and enjoy some family time.  The transition from "normal life" to that of a law student can affect your ent...

It’s been a long day.  Tuesdays are long days for me. They start with 9am Contracts (which means I’m up at 7am), an hour break and then ALTA until 1pm. Starting next week, the wonderful Karen will be offering our CivPro review sessions from 1:30-2:30. This gives me exactly 30 minutes to get home, 5 minutes to drop off my school stuff and grab my property homework and then 10 minutes to get to my babysitting job. Then, I don’t get home again...

Happy MLK Jr. Day! In observance of MLK Day, we were treated to a three-day weekend! Although I didn’t get as much studying and reading done as I would have liked, I can’t deny that it was a productive weekend. My big task was to convert our spare bedroom into an office. We really do not have visitors that often, and we (okay, mostly I…) decided that the space would be much better used as a place for me to study. This involved moving out a lot ...

Make the most of your law school experience.  Most evening law students work during the day as well as have families and other obligations to tend to. This makes it a bit challenging to get the exposure and experience in the field before graduating.  Law school opens up a world of opportunity and  being an evening student should not stop you from getting practical experience early on.  When people see you work h...

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 ...
