March 19th, 2011Today was Day 14 in my “let’s see how many days in a row I can make the trip downtown” adventure.  Today was the second day of the Patrick A. Keenan Memorial Appellate Advocacy Tournament. As an incoming editor of law review, I am not eligible for a position as a national team member next year (and competing for those positions was a big part of this competition), so the pressure was off. My partner and I ende...

March 14th, 2011I’m starting to feel like I live at school…I just never seem to leave!  In addition to my usual schedule last week, I was also downtown Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It also feels like every week I add a few hours to my normal “at school”  time.   My moot court preparations have been coming together: I almost have both arguments prepared!  My law review comment is taking a bit longer. I had to rework th...

March 12th, 2011Fifteen days.   In fifteen days, I will have completed my moot court competition, the final draft of my law review comment will be submitted, and life will be less crazy. Of course, I’m a second year law student, so no guarantees on what “less crazy”  entails…but it will definitely be a relief to get these two items off my “to do” list.  Yesterday was the long-awaited Law Review Symposium. The Symposium ...

March 5th, 2011What a week!  After a normal Monday, I had quite a busy week. I spent all day at school on Tuesday working on homework, and I also attended the Public Interest Fair. At the Fair, we got the chance to meet with representatives from community and government organizations like the US Attorney’s office, Salvation Army, FBI, and Detroit Public Schools. It was a great opportunity to become more familiar with the types of things the...

February 19th, 2011Spring Break!!  Some people have exciting trips and such planned for this break, but I’m pretty satisfied with sleeping in and taking a bit of lower-guilt free time.  Yesterday was my first real day of break…and it started with a trip downtown to do some coaching for one of the national moot court teams. All of the junior moot court members have coaching requirements, and I want to make sure I have enough time to co...

February 16th, 2011The struggle with night classes? I’m well into hour thirteen of being awake, and I am only halfway through my school day.  I was up at 6:30am to work on my Criminal Law “Writing Across the Curriculum” paper, left the house at 8am…and I haven’t been home yet! Between my paper, reading for class, and a mini moot court practice session to prepare for and attend, I had a busy day. I just got out of crimlaw at 7:30pm, and now ...

February 8th, 2011Wow. What an emotional week it was. Last week was a pretty rough week, some good things, some bad, and quite a roller coaster of emotions. I had my moot court brief due on Friday, and my first draft of law review due on Sunday, so I had all of that hanging over my head throughout the week. My great grandmother passed away last week. I had two days off from classes. I got into a fender bender on my way to school.  I found o...

February 1st, 2011Oh no! It’s a snowpacaylpse!  It is 7:11pm on Tuesday, and I’m not sure if I believe the hype about all of this snow…but, yeah, it’s 7:11pm on a Tuesday, and I’m at Panera with a hot bowl of soup instead of in class. I’ll take it. I’ve been a student with the University of Detroit Mercy for five and a half years, and for the first time (with the exception of once, when the University closed over winter break…who cares then...

January 29th, 2011Three weeks down…  This was a trying week for me. I have a lot going on: moot court, law review, classes, internship applications…plus worrying about my first semester grades that I was not-so-patiently waiting for. All of this pressure seemed to just pile on throughout the week, and on Thursday morning, it took everything in me not to burst into tears.  Fortunately, as the day went on, things improved, to the point ...

January 23th, 2011Yeesh. Just a little busy…  This semester is going to be my most challenging one, probably of my law school career. I am taking seventeen credits this semester, which was definitely not the plan…it just ended up that way with all of the classes/co-curriculars that I wanted to take. (The max is generally sixteen credits, but I was able to request a waiver of this limitation so that I would still be able to get credit for th...
