Wow....I hadn't realized it had been so long since my last post!  Since then, finals have come and (thankfully) gone and after a short break I'm back in class for the summer!  Right after exams I was lucky to get to take an extended weekend vacation to relax before returning to a regular work schedule. And, it has been great to get to spend real quality time wth friends and family whom I admitedly fail to see as regularly as I should d...

It's official:  30 days remain until exams are over and a well earned break presents itself.  The challenge will be to remain focused as the weather gets warm (hopefully), friends start emerging from their winter hibernation, and events at school and around town begin to seem worthwhile again.  Really, what happens to me is that I start looking for any and every distraction available in order to do anything but study. That is a rec...

To put this into perspective- I am an evening student and that means I attend classes four nights a week, I al...

Generally, daylight savings time comes and goes almost without being noticed.  This year - not so much. I can't believe it is already this time of year and I think I'm still recovering from that lost hour of sleep over the weekend.  That probably sounds a bit strange, but every minute of sleep seems to count these days.  A jam packed calendar is to blame... There are numerous things going on at UDM in the upcoming weeks- the 1L mo...

Well, I've never blogged before, but I suppose now is a good time to start given the upcoming events of this weekend.  Tomorrow begins the preliminary rounds of the Keenan Moot Court competition here at UDM, and I'll be the first to admit I'm very nervous!  My partner and I have been practicing for the oral argument for a couple weeks now after turning in our brief that basically took over all of our "free" time for a month.  I jus...
