Law School is tiring

So tired all the time! It's ridiculous. And I'm not just physically tired, but mentally exerted as well. I'm a workhorse, but I'd like just one day, just a one day break where there is no law school and just naps, tv, and good food/wine.

I took my contracts midterm a couple of weeks ago, but he hasn't returned it yet. I'm getting pretty anxious about it. I did well on my torts midterm, my score on that was in the top 10% of the class and I'd like to keep that going.

My Memo 3 is due in a couple of weeks. I finally started on it, doing some research on WestLaw last night. I don't mind the memos, I don't think they take long when you just sit down and do them, but I have trouble doing just that. Plus I'm nervous about this one, because the Prof. Legal R & W pretty much held our hand through the first two and those aren't for grades. This one is and there hasn't been near as much guidelines with it either, so it just makes me nervous because I'm not sure if I'm looking at the correct jurisdictions, if I am understanding the issues presented, and just all that.

Finals are almost a month away now. My torts outlines is pretty caught up, but needs some massive editing. Contracts hasn't been updated in a while, not since the midterm. I haven't started my civil procedure outline, but I'm going to... soon. Hopefully. Maybe tomorrow night? Yeah, well, probably not, but a girl can dream.

This weekend is regionals for the negotiation competition. I'm looking forward to it, actually. Kind of nervous about it as well. I'd like to do well. No, I'd like to kick ass and go to nationals, that's what I'd really like. That would be fabulous.

And finally, probably the most exciting news... we got a puppy for my Dad for his birthday (it's on the 11th).

Aw, soooooooo cute!

Hi, I am Juliet. I am a junior attorney and neophyte blogger and I recently found your website. I hope that you will consider this invitation to join a new web ring, “The Bob Loblaw Attorney & Law Student Web Ring”.

(Put “Arrested Development” on your Netflix queue if you aren’t familiar with the Bob Loblaw reference.)

Although I have been blogging for only a short time, I have discovered that there are a lot of good sites written by law students and new practitioners, covering a wide range of topics. Finding these blogs, however, is often a long and winding road. Hence, the recent brainstorm to create this web ring connecting the sites to one another.

I hope that you will consider joining. The host entity, Webring.com is a highly recommended web ring service and will not sell or trade your personal information. It is also easy to join. The anticipated result? With a little publicity and a little time we can build a community of sorts, and worthwhile blogs, including yours, will continue to see new and growing traffic.

Please join!--The link is: http://E.webring.com/hub?ring=bobloblawjuniora

Thank you and good luck on exams!
