I can't believe it's November already.  Well, I can believe it.  I just don't want to.  Time is going by so quickly, and there is still so much to do.  In a few short weeks, classes will be over and it will be exam time.  This is the point where everyone's stress really hits.  But whatever.  It's nothing I haven't done before. 

In these past few months I've learned a lot.  I'm happy about that.  I do not have the time to go through every lesson learned, but I believe that it is important that I share the most important lesson. 

The most important lesson that I've learned in these past few months is not to underestimate the value of my family.  That sounds cliche, but anyone who knows me knows that I don't go back to Brampton (a suburb of Toronto) that much.  I usually spend so much time working and concerning myself with school that I forget to call home and check up on the family.  But these past few months I have come to rely on them more than I have in a very long time.  My mother has especially been helpful.  I really do not know if I could have made it these past few months without her.  Her daily prayers, faith in God, and willingness to listen to me vent have been so wonderful.  I am very grateful for her.

The best part about this year is still the SBA stuff.  It makes this year fun.  For instance, a few weeks ago the Law Students with Children and Phi Alpha Delta student organizations held a Halloween event at the school for the children of law students.  It was nice to see how many people came out.  I dressed up as Fred Flintstone.  That was fun.  (I know a few of the staff members at Best Buy and Office Depot definitely appreciated it.)   But, in general, having an opportunity to work with so many UDM Law people is fun.  At least for me it is.
