January 10th, 2011Look! We have pretty, new classrooms!   If any of you have toured our school previously, and are still waffling on whether we’re the right place for you, I recommend coming by and checking out some of our new changes. I had class in one of our newly renovated classrooms today, and I was amazed at the transformation! I mean, when it comes down to things, a law school is much more than a building, but a nice building ce...

January 5th, 2011If there is such a thing as there being crunch time during Christmas break, this would be it.  Today, I made the trip to school (of course it starts snowing right when I get here…) to take care of some last minute sorts of things. The building is a complete construction zone right now; I guess the crews are all feeling the “crunch”  too with only a few days until the school is swarming with students again. I can’t wait...

January 4th, 2011Not yet back to classes, but definitely back to schoolwork.   I’ve had a pretty fun break, spent a lot of time with family and friends, gotten some stuff done around the house…and now it’s hitting me that I really haven’t done much with any of my law review or moot court stuff this break. I’m planning to spend the next week working on my law review research (I have until February 6 to complete my first draft…only 30 pa...

December 23rd, 2010Done. Done! DONE!  Yippee! I am done for the semester…which means I am halfway through my law school career!  Funny though, if anything, I’ve been busier during my “break” than I was during the semester! A lot of my friends from high school are in graduate and professional school out of state, so I’ve had a pretty rich social life over the past few days. I’ve also been doing the whole Christmas thing: putting u...

December 12th, 2010I’m so close to being done…just one more final, and one take-home!! It’s been quite an interesting week.  This past week, I had a bad sinus infection for which I was prescribed antibiotics that gave made me feel nauseated for five days. That was a pretty sucky five days…but my antibiotics ritual is now over, my sinuses are less angry, and life is better.  On Friday was my first final exam, evidence. As I was sitting...

December 3rd, 2010Whew! Made it to Friday! (Not that that means a whole lot now that final exam study time is in full force…)  Tonight, I join a large bunch of my fellow 2Ls for our evidence review session. When better to discuss evidence than 6pm on a Friday night? To make things more fun, the building is under insane construction right now: everywhere you go, it seems to be really hot, really cold, or really noisy. Oh well…I’m hoping our ...

December 1st, 2010What an emotional 24 hours.  Yesterday started off as a wonderful day. I had gotten practically no sleep because I was putting the finishing touches on my brief, but I woke up feeling good about life. I went to pick up my bound brief (which is 100% submitted and done, as you’ll see from the picture!), got some Tim Hortons, got to school and got the best parking spot in the lot…life was good.  Then I found out after I...

November 27th, 2010I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!  For me, it’s been not-so-enjoyable. Thanksgiving was nice, although I did do some work on my brief that evening. Black Friday involved five hours of working at Bath and Body Works, and then more work on my brief, along with a mild freak out.  Today is the day where everything needs to come together. It seems like many of my classmates are on the finishing ...

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...
