Whistle Britches

A friend of mine sent me this text a few weeks ago: Dude. Dude. Duuuuuude. I was willing to die for that meal. If there had been a 3rd biscuit, I would have eaten it and it would have killed me and I would have died happy.   Now, I should tell you – my friends know how much I lurrrrveeee brunch. They rarely send foodie finds unless they’re 100% confident that…

Managing Your Debt

My parents couldn’t afford to pay for my college education. It’s that simple. There’s no whining or complaining here. Just straight facts. I wanted to attend college so I could afford luxuries I just didn’t have as a kid. Every teacher I ever interacted with said some variation of “Get good grades. Go to college. You’ll get a great job.” BULLSHIT. Not all degrees will land you a well-paying job….

Venting Frustrations

Attending law school as a former educator can sometimes be incredibly upsetting. For example – our professors recently started speaking about “unpacking concepts,” and I swear, I almost thought I was sitting in the back row of a professional development meeting about to die. I damn near fainted. How in the hell, did Texas TEKS end up gurgling into my law classes? I thought pursuing law school might mean I would…

Love & Law School

Friendships are incredibly important to your life balance and ultimate happiness. This notion is even more crucial in school and, in my honest opinion, more-so in graduate school – where you’re testing the very limits of your own capacity to achieve and persevere. [Translation: Law school is hard, yo.] Law school is an institution that can cultivate deep, long-lasting relationships; law school will break you down. Everyone gets brain fatigue….

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. [There’s really not a whole lot worse…

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. Seriously though – the effort is worth every ounce of energy you…

Law School F-Up

Today kind of sucked. Mostly because the textbook market failed me. Supply/Demand curves, yo. I needed a ConLaw book for a class, specifically – the 5th edition. Since I don’t have a million dollars, I pay for my schooling (including books) with loans, and can’t purchase my texts with blood or tissue samples [my undergrad was secured by promising my first-born to the Baylor Line] – I am careful with my funds…

Bookstore Proposal

This year, the Beau & I celebrated our 10th anniversary! 10 years, y’all. There’s a ton of dance-offs, snort-laughs, and late night star-gazing wrapped up in that decade. This amazing man, who I was pretty sure I had pegged (and knew full-well he couldn’t keep a secret), managed to catch me by surprise. As a law student, you know surprise anything (unless it’s wine and dark chocolate cake) rarely ends well. My calendar was…

Wanderlust

This past weekend, I took an opportunity to run far from my notes, quizzes, and exam prep materials – three days before finals were set to begin. My best friend asked if I had a mental death wish. Truthfully, I snagged a great deal on airline tickets, and managed to fly from Dallas > Boston roundtrip for $22. I used a few of my airline points from previous flights with Southwest,…

Rolling Craps + Bright Lights

  This post is several weeks late. I wanted to update y’all, really – but I had this crazy notion that 2L year was going to be smooth sailing. Don’t ask me where the delusion came from, because I have no answers for you. Here’s what you need to know – law school is still incredible, and I love learning new concepts; but then, sometimes, law school will kick you…
