Not again...

8 am class in the morning. Professional Responsibility. What an exciting start to the new school year!

And then that night, I have a moot court competition. Woohooo. I should probably start preparing for that, or at least figure out what I'm arguing...

Oh and incoming 1L's, honestly, it's not to late to run. I'll elaborate on this at some point, but just take my word for it, it's not to late. But if you're going to ignore that then, good luck kiddos! I'm sure you'll all be terrific :)!

I need a job too. Gah. What am I doing with my life....

Oh Joy

All my class assignments have been posted - Conflicts of Law, Constitutional Law, Basic Tax, and Prof. Resp.

I guess that really means I am a week away from starting my 2nd year of law school.

I am a terrible, terrible blawger.

On another note, this is my 100th blog post. Whoo!

Still in law school. Survived my 1L year. Maybe I'll make a post about it next month... but lets not get our hopes up.

Currently interning with the Judge. He's very nice. I mostly watch trials, change of pleas, sentencing hearings, Rule 16 conference meetings... those kinds of things and am working on a brief. It's pretty laid back and his law clerks are very nice too. It's a good place to be for the summer.

So, yeah. Kids, try to work for Judges. They're pretty great people and very educational experiences.

That's all I've got, for now.

Big Wheels Keep on Turning

Today I'm coming to you *live* from my study carrel at school. Whoo! So exciting.
Probably shouldn't be updating my blawg while I'm at school, but meh. It's not like my study carrel partner (I have to share) is around or wants to use the study carrel and I actually did my K reading... unlike 75% of my class I'd say.

People have stopped going to K. Prof K doesn't seem to mind, or even notice really. Well, okay, he did comment on it one day, but he was more puzzled about the silence, not really the lack of students. I understand why people don't go, and yet, I continue to go to class. I don't know if I'm getting anything out of it. I can't say that for my other classes, I know that by attending those, that I'm learning...

It's not the same with K. Prof K lectures, but has different expectations for us when it comes to the final. Which is frustrating, because he wants us to do all this outside reading and essentially learn K on our own, but it's hard to do that when that's all the guidelines you have, nothing more. He lectures in class over the casebook and the like, but that's not what he expects us to know on the final.

At least it is March.

Almost time for spring break. Still have lots of work to be done. So, home I will go in hopes of productiveness to be achieved there.

Thoughts on February

"All Februaries are without a doubt, the Worst Months in any given Year. Unpronounceable. Cold. Gray. Barren. A dumping ground for feature films. The month when you have finally used up all the tasty frozen preserves that you slaved over in a burst of super green eco-energy last summer. Now all you have left is freezer-burned hamburger meat, and you couldn't care less. The whole month is like freezer-burned hamburger meat. Put some ketchup on it and choke it down."-Samantha Bee [WSJ]

I hate February and it's almost over. Thank God.

Hello there

I think my blog may (probably) have been found through my twitter account. Whoops. I'm not entire sure if this will change anything.


To any 0L reading this: Law school is tough. It's extremely stressful. You might find yourself thinking, "Yes, I've heard this before, but I'll be different. It will be different for me." The thing is, you're probably going to be wrong. And that's okay. You're not going to the only one struggling/feeling incompetent, you're not the first one, and you're not going to be the last one.

I say this because, once those first semester grades come out... it makes law school so much tougher. Actually, not true if you're in the top 25% of the class (which I am not, but many of my friends are...), but for everyone else, it gets worse. For the past month, since grades came out, I've been in a fog, a heavy, depressing, crying-induced, stressed out, exhaustive fog. It's only now that I'm being to feel it lifting, but I still feel dumb many times that I'm in that building, many times when I'm around my friends who did extremely well. You just can't let it keep you down.

Well, I don't know what I intended with this post, but I know what I'll end it with...


And that is all I've got.

Law school classes start tomorrow. I feel like I am going back to prison.

I have property early in the morning, and then many hours later, K. And that's it, so it'll be a nice Thursday, but still. I sense the impending doom.

As such, I feel like doing a random survey thing I found on Facebook. It looks interesting and I still don't feel like reading for property.

If I were a month, I would be October.

If I were a day of the week, I would be Wednesday.

If I were a time of day, I would the afternoon.

If I were a flower, I would be a daisy.

If I were a kind of weather, I would be a cool, breezy day.

If I were a musical instrument, I would be a flute.

If I were a color, I would be kelly green.

If I were an emotion, I would be amused.

If I were a fruit, I would be a clementine.

If I were a sound, I would be a giggle.

If I were an element, I would be fire.

If I were a car, I would be a BMW.

If I were a food, I would be gumbo.

If I were a place, I would be Nantucket Island.

If I were a material, I would be cotton.

If I were a taste, I would be peppery.

If I were a scent, I would be lavender.

If I were an animal, I would be a python.

If I were an object, I would be a skillet.

If I were a body part, I would be an elbow.

If I were a facial expression, I would be a look of guilt.

If I were a pair of shoes, I would be a sneaker.

Long Overdue

I wish I could say I made a resolution to post more frequently, but since I typically fail at my resolutions, I decided to look ahead and not make such a resolution. But I'll try to be better, I promise!

I did make a resolution to work out. Not to work out more, or weekly, or anything like that, to just workout. As long as I get to the gym once this year, that resolution will be a success. I like to aim low...

Speaking of which, grades are out at my law school. I'm happy I survived (as in I'm in 'good standing' academically speaking) but I'm around the middle of the pack, maybe even a bit on the low side and that I'm not too happy with. Though I may just be more frustrated with the fact that my friend kicked my ass. And her new year's resolution is to drink more this year... which I'm going to help her with, since I'm such a good friend. Granted, one class, Contracts, tore me down. On the upside, I know it destroyed a lot of people's grades (because 3L's and 2L's have told me this class was their lowest grade in law school). The downside is I have the same professor next semester...This does not bode well for me.

So, I guess my resolutions are, to sum them up: workout, study more/harder/better, and drink more. That last one kind of cancels the other two out... but we'll see. It can and will be done!
