*Grumble*Monday*Grumble*  I am not a Monday girl. My day started off with a trip to the post office at 9am to ship my Torts Examples and Explanations book that I sold on Amazon. Torts? Been there, done that.  After that, I had to be at school for 10am for a group meeting for a project we are doing based on the book “A Civil Action.” That took a whole 25 minutes…and then I had to wait around until class at noon. I took the time to go t...

March 30th, 2011Yay for Wednesday. This day is generally the end of my school week. My classes begin at 9am and end at 3pm. By Wednesday's end I am exhausted. I am getting back on my work out regimine which helps to promote my energy. I also get energy knowing that March is coming to a close. March had a lot going on (March madness as some say). It  seems like there was some function going every day. Because so many organizations and the s...

March 10th, 2011Birthday!  Today was fantastic for me as I celebrated my * * birthday.  This was one of the best birthdays so far.  I took time out for myself, and then spent time with family & friends.  Early morning, I had quiet time then later that morning headed to the spa with my best friend.  After being pampered for a few hours, we followed-up by spending several hours shopping.  It was great.  ...

March 4th, 2011This week has been busy, fulfilling and balanced.   The first week back (actually the first 3 days back) from spring "break" I had 2 assignments due, an oral presentation, and started an externship.  Needless to say, I feel a sense of accomplishment in the scheme of things.   The start of the week was hectic burning the midnight oil completing the assignments, preparing for the presentation and completing...

February 23rd, 201124 hours. One thing we all have in common is we each share the same 24 hours a day. I must admit since we have been on 'break' I have not made the most of my 24 hours. These past few days after work, I come home and get right in bed. I've been shamefully unproductive.  It may just be my body trying to catch up on rest.  I can't rest peacefully over the "break" because I still have assignments due before classes resu...

January 11th, 2011This semester is going by way too fast.   This semester, I'm taking 3 classes (my normal extended-evening track), Conflicts of Laws, Children and the Law Firm Program and French Law.  As an evening student, I am still taking some of my required courses. This semester I am fulfilling 2 more required courses.  The Law Firm Program (we're required to take 2) and French Law (satisfies the International Law requ...

December 15th, 2010Nearing another semester behind me!  Today I will open my last exam.  Once I access the online exam, I have 24 hours to complete it.  After that, I'M DONE!  Well I'll be done with another semester and will have a little R&R before bringing in the New Year and starting another semester.  The day after exams I'm scheduled to take a short cruise to the Bahamas with my soon to be 15 year old son. ...

December 9th, 2010Two down and two to go – This evening I took my Professional Responsibility final, my first one of the semester.  A couple of weeks ago I turned in my Health Law seminar paper.  It’s such a relief not to be writing a paper and studying for finals at the same time.  Now, I have only two more finals to go, (American Indian law and Estates and Trust), before completing another semester!  It seems that every ti...

December 6th, 2010Has law school gotten the best of me? The other day a co-worker compared me to the cartoon character Vavoom.   I’ve never heard of Vavoom until I was called it.  After finding and looking at the picture of Vavoom, I must admit that my facial expression is much like his.  And even his apparel is somewhat similar to how I’ve been dressing.  I just laughed when I saw the character, because there is a hint ...
