November 20th, 2010Today is Saturday, aka Day 2 of my four day weekend. My weekend ends with class on Tuesday, and then I don’t have class again until the following Tuesday. It’s a shame I have that silly thing called homework…  This week seemed to just drag on. On Tuesday, my usual break in my day was taken up by a law review meeting, where we got tips on how to effectively write an introduction to our note. (We also found out that this no...

November 15th, 2010Today was a crazy sort of day.  I must confess, despite my best efforts (well, maybe not…), my summary and externship paper didn’t get completed on Friday. My summary was turned in early on Sunday (it would have been Saturday, but it was a partner assignment, so we needed to make sure we were both in agreement before we submitted it), and my externship paper was submitted this afternoon.  I got up and out early this...

November 12th, 2010Happy 100th Blog Post to Me!  It is important to celebrate important milestones in life. I’m celebrating this milestone by eating a cookie…and then working on homework. (I should point out at this point that I’m not a loser who counts her blog posts. When I save my posts to e-mail them in, I cleverly title them “blog1,” “blog2,” “blog3,” etc...)  We are at the point in the semester where I am challenging myself...

November 6th, 2010Life-of-Leisure-Meagan no longer exists…at least not until December 14, at 5pm.   The semester is in sight, and I’m feeling the pressure. We have full weeks next week and the week after, then Thanksgiving week, a make-up/review week, and then two weeks of finals. Eek!!  Between now and then, I have just a little bit to do. I sit for two exams this semester, plus a take-home exam. Before I even get to exams thoug...

October 30th, 2010Here it is now, a sunny Saturday afternoon, and Meagan is at Panera to work on…her advanced advocacy argument! (I bet you didn’t see that one coming…)  With advanced advocacy, the big issue is not understanding the law, but being able to take a stand and articulate your position clearly and persuasively. We’ve been assured that we’re not going to be graded on how well we understand the law of absolute and qualified immunit...

October 22th, 2010It is a Friday night, and here I am doing homework. I have that advanced advocacy argument draft due on Sunday at 8pm, and I really don’t want it to take over my entire weekend…  Today was a good day. I met a friend downtown for lunch and outlining, and then we had faculty advising. This advising gave us the opportunity to talk to different professors about classes next semester, how to fit in all of our required classes, ...

October 20th, 2010Okay, so this week may be the closest thing I get to a life of leisure this semester…and I am determined to enjoy it!  My advanced advocacy argument that was supposed to be due tomorrow (Thursday) was moved to Sunday. This means the 48 hour writing freak out period I allowed myself has been spread out over 120 hours or so. SO much better. (Of course, now this means I’m going to be working on my argument over the weekend…li...

October 18th, 2010Wow…I’ve been just a little busy lately.  Let’s see, since I’ve last updated, I have: finished and submitted my evidence paper, caught up on all of my reading (go me!), attended a cousin’s wedding, helped out at an admissions “prospective student” event, cleaned my room (kind of…), completed a sourcecheck for law review (and, in turn, had the closest thing I’ve ever had to an all-nighter: 2.5 hours of sleep), bought a pump...

October 6th, 2010Maybe next week’s workload will be lighter! I say it every week, and I’m certainly hoping this is finally the week where it’s true!  This week is a crazy week for many of the 2L students, at least all of us who are taking evidence. (And I think there are three sections of us, so that works out to an awful lot of students…) It is the week that our “Writing Across the Curriculum” paper is due. The WAC is a UDM Law specialty; ...

September 30th, 2010Happy Thursday!  What a busy week…but at this point in the year, I’ve just come to expect that. I was really worried about my workload for the week, so much so that I created a special “homework schedule” to keep track of it all. I don’t know if I have been particularly diligent this week, or if I just overestimated how long everything would take me, but I think I’m actually ahead of the game for the first time this...
