3 Tips for Keeping Your Relationship Afloat In Law School

In case you don’t already know – Law School is difficult. It’s an experience no one can understand until they’ve been through it. Yeah, you’ve heard that before – but it’s completely true. I feel that in order to get past the crappy parts, you need to pick a point in your near-future and focus on it like your entire life depends on getting there. If I break my concentration, letting other minutiae get…

Law Student Reviews: Hello Fresh

Balancing a schedule is beyond hectic in law school. I imagine it’s similar to actually practicing law. There are deadlines, meetings, prep sessions, after-hours events – the list continues… What I find particularly challenging is working out and eating well between reading and briefing cases. Since I’ve been sorely lacking in the “workout plan” department, I felt I should pick up the slack on the healthy eating. Because, I can…

Brunch is still Legal…I think

After all these Executive Orders, I’m happy to report on a happier topic. The Bestie & I tried a new (to us, anyhow) brunch spot in Dallas. Sissy’s Southern Kitchen is a kitzschy country kitchen on Knox-Henderson. We’ve visited twice and, with a bit of help from family, tried all (but one) recipes on the menu. Since brunch is basically my favorite meal, I believe I found my happiest place…

1L: Getting Through Winter Break

“Law school attracts all kinds of crazy. Yourself included.” – One of my Best Friends Honestly, she’s not wrong. Law Students are a special breed of student. We get kicked in the teeth every single day, and keep coming back. There is a level of mental anguish that we simply become comfortable operating at, existing moment by moment on the brilliant notion of adding two letters to the end of our…

7 Tips: Prepping for Finals in Law School

Law School finals are beastly. The preparation that goes into studying goes far beyond the scope any student experiences during undergraduate years. Side note: I walked into senior year finals at Baylor in pajamas. [No, really – I did. You try studying for Anatomy & Physiology while working on a Medical Genetics Term Paper and a Biomedical Engineering Presentation.] Law school is different. The stress levels are palpable. I’ve told you it…

Staying Organized in Law School

Law school is not for the faint of heart. There are hundreds of tasks to complete throughout a semester, from reading and briefing cases to writing memos; all the while you’re trying to keep yourself afloat. As far as I know, no one in my class (including the few paralegals) feel this experience is easy. In fact, everyone struggles at some point. Everyone. As I’m battling my way through this semester, and…

Study Break @ The Crafty Irishman

Being at school in…

Things to Avoid Eating in Law School

You should probably avoid pretty much anything I stress bake. That’s right, I stress bake. Here’s a quick little reminder for you guys who are not aware of my sordid love affair with decadent chocolate cake and anything bathed in a creme. I mean, come ON! How are you not salivating?  You see, I have a real love and passion for food. I wouldn’t say I’m as adventurous as Andrew Zimmern, but I do…

Self-Care in Law School

  During our Fundamentals Week, which is basically a crash-course in law school etiquette and expectations, one professor took the time to explain self-care in a way I’d never heard. She introduced me to Spoon Theory. Ever heard of it? It is a great model to explain the use of energy and how to get more of it. The theory was written by Christine Miserandino. She used it to explain…

Law School – Remember to Breathe

Law school exams are terrifying. Maybe you are not of the same opinion, but I personally do not do well with uncertainty. Truly, I do not mind taking the exam. Waiting for grades to post however is what I find stressful. This semester, midterms were a welcome break from classes. There is so much information poured into my brain on a daily basis, I was ecstatic to find a few…
