Breakfast Prep!

Rolling out of bed and getting the day started is not as fun when the Texas weather refuses to pick a season. This past week brought temperatures ranging from 28 degrees to 70 degrees. With classes in full swing, the motivating factor to get me up and at ’em is the withering stare I’d receive from my morning professors for interrupting their classes.

Spring Semester Goals

It’s really odd to think about being half-way done with law school. Time flies when you’re drowning in enjoying case law, I guess. Despite the law school struggles, I am incredibly thankful for making it thus far. There’s a helluvalot of work that goes into prepping for class, attending networking events, and maintaining up-to-date writing samples plus a resume.

Most of the meals cost around $3 per serving, make at least 4 servings, and they are so easy to…

First Day Back!

Three semesters down, baby! It feels soooo good. I know it sounds crazy, but I really look forward to coming back to class. Law school is one of my happiest places. I’ve spoken to you about how hard classes are, and explained that my social life is nil, and joke about staying under the warm covers, eating bon-bons, and reading novels over the break, but the truth is – I…

The Socratic Method Nightmare: My First Day of Law School

Here’s the post I wanted to publish, but couldn’t bring myself to do so because it was a  wee bit snarky. After tonight’s panel – I felt it should see the light of day; this way, you know just what was running through my mind that Fall morning. Enter: Torts Class 1. Now after almost a week of orientation (“fundamentals”), and finding out that I don’t know a damn thing…
