April 7th, 2011This has been a rough week.   It’s taking me longer than I expected to get back into my usual routine, and I worry about how much longer I can keep up this insane pace. It seems like everyone around me is sick, and I feel like my immune system is starting to give in to the peer pressure: all I want to do is sleep. That being said, there are only eleven hours until my weekend starts…and I should actually have the chance t...

March 30th, 2011Greetings from 32,000 feet! What a month!  On Sunday, I turned in my final draft of my law review comment…and now I’m finished with most of my big projects. My law review obligations (at least as a junior member…) are basically done. For moot court, I have finished coaching my assigned 1L students for the G. Mennen competition this weekend, so now moot court is done. I have a small writing assignment for my Constitutional La...

March 24th, 2011CRUNCH!!  T minus three days and counting…and then I am finished with my law review comment!  Today is one of my notoriously busy Thursdays. After today, I am prepared to spend the rest of my weekend writing about organ donation. And then hopefully never thinking about organ donation again!  Today in trial practice, we have a review day. (At first I was all excited because I figured “review” meant “nothing to pre...

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...
