Spring Break in the middle of winter. My calendar is all planned out with plenty of things that I need to accomplish while enjoying a week off from classes.  While it’s nice to get some down time I feel as though I cannot relax or else I’d drop the ball.  I need to keep a certain amount of stress on myself during the entire semester.  Otherwise it would be too difficult for a person as myself to get back in school mode when classe...

Create a positive sphere of influence!  I'm learning the importance of being around people who produce good / positive energy.  Surround yourself with positive people that have a can-do attitude.  This is essential when you have a hectic, non-stop schedule. When you are around likeminded people you help each other keep positive thoughts throughout the day.  I caution you, however, to steer clear of people that “juic...

Having a family, working and attending law school.  One of my most challenging day-to-day responsibilities is making sure that I am being a good parent.  Parenting skills cannot be learned by reading a book.  The skills required to be a good parent are learned during the process of raising children.  This by far is the most challenging skills I've yet to learn.  When you have another person's life...

Someone asked me today how I manage all that I have to do.  This question is not something I focus on nor one I could easily answer.  An afterthought - it's just my life. In fact, if I begin thinking about my several responsibilities, tasks and etc., I would likely get discouraged from my goals and loose sight of what's most important to me.  This in large part is to be a role model for my son and help him to achieve his ...

I made it to the weekend!  So the big news of the week? As of about 5:30pm yesterday (Friday), all of the first year grades were posted. It was a frustrating few weeks having to wait for them, and while I can’t speak for all of the 1L’s, for me it feels like a weight has been lifted. Cliché, yes…but so true. (Maybe that’s just because I ended up doing really well on the exam that I was honestly convinced would destroy my 1L GPA…)  I c...

Reviewing notes after each class and start outlining early. Part of the law school adjustment is learning what study method works best for you.  I found that reviewing notes after class for a few minutes helps me better understand the concepts.  More recently I found that I should focus on one class per study session.  This way, I am learning the material in manageable clusters and don’t get overwhelmed with all that I have to do....

Reflect constantly.  All things happen for a reason and nothing happens by chance.  I live my life with no regrets and am constantly working to become the person that God has predestined me to be.  This requires constant self-reflection. Through good times, great sacrifice and much tragedy I have come to enjoy each moment in life and have learned from life experiences.  Sometimes I calm myself fro...

Fun filled weekend with law books.  Most of my time is accounted for during the week, so the weekends are reserved for studying.  There is not much time really to do anything else.  But, sometimes you have to break with tradition.  Today I will be hitting the books mostly all day but will reserve some R&R and pamper myself a bit.  I will also find some enjoyment in sho...
