January 8th, 2010It’s Friday! It took extra long to get to school this morning because the roads were so bad with all of the snow but I made it to school with 15 minutes to kill before class started.  Just enough time to get a good seat in the first day of our new class Core Concepts.  For the most part, all of our classes are a yearlong with the exception of Torts (which we had the first semester) and Core Concepts (which we have now)....

January 6, 2010And the 2nd semester of law school begins… We started class again yesterday but without knowing how we did on any of our exams!  I’m trying to just forget finals happened and move forward, but everyone is dying to find out how we all did.  From what I’ve heard; however, we’ll have to wait a couple more weeks before grades will come out.  During orientation, I remember a 2L telling me that law school is a lot like h...

December 16th, 2009The end is almost here!  Tomorrow morning is my last final of the semester, 3 down 1 to go!  I feel completely drained and exhausted but I’m so excited because it’s almost over!  It sounds weird but I really enjoyed myself during my contracts exam.  We were given 3 hours to complete 4 essays.  It was exciting to flip the page and look at the new essay, see what topics it covered, and start creating an ...

December 12th, 2009Saturday: An alarm clock should never have to go off before 6:30 am on a Saturday; yet, mine did because it’s finals time.  Complete exhaustion forced my half asleep brain to hit snooze (three times), but nonetheless I managed to get up, put myself together, and start studying before 8 am.  I had a professor tell me last week that I should think of law school as a sport and finals is my “competition”; I should have ...

December 10th, 2009What a week! Yesterday was my first law school final exam.  It was scheduled to last 4 hours and it (to my surprise) lasted the entire four hours! In fact, some people didn’t even finish. It feels great to have one done, but there are still 3 more to go.  I have my property exam tomorrow morning; this one we are only given 3 hours to take.  I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes!...

December 7th, 2009There are not enough hours in a day! My first exam is less than 36 hours away and even if I didn’t sleep at all and studied around the clock, I still don’t think I’d feel ready! I’m so stressed out! I honestly feel like I need to go into hiding, deactivate my facebook account (which I just can’t bring myself to do, I mean I do need SOME breaks right?), turn off my cell phone (but I think that would give my family [particularly m...

December 2nd, 2009I got sick on Thanksgiving and I’m still recovering from what ended up being bronchitis.  Everyone seems to be getting sick; it’s terrible! I worked on property from 7:30 this morning until 3:30, way too much property! This week has been a disaster! First, I got sick with bronchitis, then my boots broke, my coat broke, and today on my way to school my car broke! I’m stressed out, trying to get better, and can’t afford for ...

November 28th, 2009I had a wonderful thanksgiving; it felt great taking a day off from law school. I started not feeling too well on Friday and now today I officially feel terrible. I’m paranoid it’s the flu! If I don’t kick this out of me by the end of today I have no idea what I am going to do. I’m in no condition to study; I could barely muster up the energy to write this blog. Let’s all hope this is just a 24 hour bug....

November 26th, 2009Today was a very long day. In between class and a review session I squeezed in a Barbri video. The barbri videos review the entire course. They are insanely long but you really only need to watch pieces of it. I had asked a friend who recently graduated from UDM law what one piece of advice he had for me as a 1L and he said “be sure to watch the barbri videos.” Some are better than others but they can only help. I’m taking the...

November 25th, 2009I had a very productive morning in the library working on Property. I’ve been working on my computer so much lately my eyes are actually starting to hurt. I have so much work to do; I keep hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thanksgiving is just a couple days away! My mom said that since I can’t help with cooking for Thanksgiving, I can do the clean-up. Lucky me! It is so hard getting my family and friends to und...
