Mesero – Dallas

The Beau and I brunched at Mesero on Sunday. We took the pups, which was a riot – because getting to the patio (with a blocked entrance…fire hazards be damned) was challenging. Our original plan was to eat at a pet-friendly restaurant (which is a short list in Dallas proper). Now, I’d eaten at Mesero before and was not super thrilled to go back. However, we were now trapped by cars…

4 Things You Must Do After Finals

Congratulations on making it through finals! <3 You earned yourself some much-needed time off.

5 Tips for a Great Study Space

  Sometimes [ok, more often than I care to count] I find myself procrastinating. I think we all do it, from time to time. One of my best friends says she “can’t seem to study until the entire house is clean, [she’s] prepped her next three meals, and there’s nothing left to distract her.” Another one of my law school besties forces herself to come to the library because then…

Let Me PUMP You UP!

  Finals week arrived. It was inevitable. I’m not quite sure where the time went. Can you believe it’s been a year? This 1L is nearly finished. And, well, I don’t know about you – but I am exhausted. I completely understand how tired you are. Tired of reading, writing, and thinking. I get it. Your classmates get it. Trust me. Everyone feels like a squished lemon, completely out of juice….
