November 23rd, 2009I completely overslept! I should have woken up early this morning, but at least I feel well rested.  I’m going to try to be ultra-productive today so I can enjoy myself at the Roller-skating party tonight! I’m getting really nervous about exams.  I’m hoping to feel more confident as the time gets closer.  I feel like I could study around the clock and still not be certain.  The day looks like it will be full...

November 22nd, 2009I was up at the crack of dawn this beautiful Saturday morning and conquered my civil procedure outline.  After 7 hours today it is up to date!  This evening I’m doing torts homework due Monday.  Is it Dec. 18th yet??   I think someone else blogged about this, but let me reiterate… Don’t let your fellow law students stress you out! Comparing how far along you are in your briefs or outlines will stress y...

November 20th, 2009Today I was able to attend another lunch with a lawyer.  I really want to stress that it is a great idea to attend one your first semester of law school.  The most exciting news I have today is that my ALTA class is over for the semester! I turned my client letter in and I don’t have to think about ALTA again until January!  This Sunday our class is having a roller skating night to celebrate the end of ALTA.&nbs...

November 19th, 2009Life throws crazy curve balls….I should have learned by now that planning things out can fail miserably at times because you just never know what life will throw your way. As I mentioned in my blog last night I had fallen asleep for a bit so I was planning to spend the rest of my night working on my memo. Shortly after submitting my blog, however, life threw a crazy curve ball my way. One of my immediate family members came hom...

November 18th, 2009The 2L class took on an “Adopt a family” project for Thanksgiving and the 1L class has decided to donate 4 baskets. I did all of the shopping for the baskets, now I just have to find the time to put them together! It feels good to help others out, even if it is just a small amount. I bought things for each family to have a Thanksgiving dinner plus scarves and hats to stay warm!I worked on property homework this morning and if f...

November 17th, 2009Today was an uneventful day in law school.  Woke up early, studied all day, went to a couple classes, studied some more and finally headed home.  The rest of the week will bring more exciting things.  I’m ready for bed! Tomorrow brings another long day…Email:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ...

November 16th, 2009Today was dedicated to working on my memo.  It was not a very exciting day.  One nice thing about our ALTA classes is that they all end this week!  It’s really great because that means one less class to worry about for finals.   When I would hear that law school was stressful I always assumed that would mean a lot of work, hard exams, and a lot more work.  Although that is all true, I didn’t reali...

November 15th, 2009I spent my entire Saturday downtown training teens the different roles of a court room.  It was a longgg day.  I have my final memo of the semester due this week so I’ll be busy working on that until this Friday!  I can’t believe it is Saturday night already. I feel like it’s still a weekday.  My entire day tomorrow is dedicated to homework. Oh the exciting life I lead…call me crazy but I love it!  I ha...

November 14th, 2009Stressed. This is about the third time this semester I’ve reached my “limit”.  The amount of stress I’m under today is almost unbearable.  It has been a crazy week and although it has been filled with some great experiences; I feel exhausted both physically and mentally.   The environmental law event last night at Honigman was amazing!  I was able to meet numerous lawyers in the field and have at leng...
