We’re getting in to crunch time. I have class Monday through Wednesday next week with a long weekend for Thanksgiving. The week after, we have classes Monday through Wednesday with review sessions Thursday and Friday (and potentially Saturday). Then we get into finals the following two weeks (Tuesdays and Thursdays). I’m not going to lie, I slept in later than I should have this morning…but I had been getting so tired, that I’m sure it was a go...

Greetings from the far out, exotic location of the third floor of the UDM Law Library! Today has been a pretty uneventful day with property and civil procedure classes in the morning. It is currently around 2pm and I am planning to stick around here for another three hours to get some outlining done. I am driving down to Toledo tonight for a friend’s college volleyball playoff, and it will actually be the same distance driving from here or from ...

What a crazy busy day! My final ALTA assignment was turned in last night. I clicked the “submit” button and that was that. I slept so well last night… Today, we had contracts in the morning, and lo and behold, we discussed…yes, guaranties and consideration, the subject of the ALTA paper I submitted last night. Then, we had a party for ALTA. It was so nice to spend time talking and laughing together, instead of stressing out about our writing as...

I am almost done with ALTA work for the semester; I just have to hold on for another several hours and get my client letter looking fabulous and then I will be finished!! I am looking forward to having time to really pick up the studying efforts this weekend; up until now, my ALTA has been my main focus, and I feel like my studying for my other classes really isn’t where it should be. Today, it took me 55 minutes to get to school (where it usual...

The end is near… Today started off normally with our contracts class, and then we had our last regularly scheduled ALTA class of the semester. We started off with Q&A about our final assignment due 1am Thursday, and then she decided to hand back our research quizzes today (which was the only thing on the agenda for Thursday’s class). Obviously, the end of our first semester deserves a party…and my professor wholeheartedly agreed. It’s on Thu...

This is going to be a long week. It is never a good sign when your Monday mornings start off with a cold shower because your family still doesn’t seem to know what time you wake up in the mornings… I headed to school around 10:00 this morning to put in a couple hours of work at the library. At noon, I moved to a different part of the library for a couple hours to get my work together for the week, smooth out the rough edges here and there, finis...

Could my weekends get any shorter?! This morning, I had a holiday sales meeting at Bath and Body Works. (Right now, I’m a floorset and seasonal associate, so I work at least every 60 days…). After that, I went to breakfast and then home to work on my ALTA client letter. I then ended up at Panera (where I discovered peppermint mocha lattes…), after the distractions at home became excessive. Once I got home, I spent some time cleaning my room and ...

Today was a different sort of Saturday. This morning, I went to school to assist at one of our prospective student open houses.  I enjoy working these sorts of events, meeting prospective students and sharing my insight and experiences. (After that, I headed to the library and spent a couple hours watching a civil procedure review video; I made it through all of this semester’s material, so I’m feeling really good about where I am in my stu...

I made it to Friday! Today was quite the abnormal Friday. We had a slightly shortened property class this morning (apparently Professor Dodge also wanted to go to the educational workshop that Professor Goldman, my civpro professor, was attending…) and then I was done. At 10:15am. I didn’t know what to do with myself! I ended up going to Panera to get some lunch and work on my ALTA assignment, had a doctor’s appointment, took my dog on a special...

It’s almost the weekend! Today was a pretty uneventful day. It started off with my contracts class from 9-10:30a. I would usually go to ALTA after that, but it was cancelled today due to conferences. When our wonderful civil procedure TA, Karen, found out that our ALTA classes were cancelled, she offered an additional review session (in addition to the one from 1:30-2:30p) for those of us who wanted to get home early. I took advantage of the ear...
