Closing Deals In Heels

This past week was a combination of brutal + exhilarating. [The best times are a bit of both, wouldn’t you say?] On top of classwork, extra-curricular activities, and working in the law library, I also drove to Austin to participate in the Public Interest Law Fair. The beau and I drove straight to Austin after a full day of classes. But you know what? The Consortium of Texas Law Schools…

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…

Book Briefs

Let me be totally frank, I know that you feel case briefing sucks the big one. It’s time-consuming, frustrating to type or write out, and you wish you could be doing anything else. Right? Well, I hate to break it to ya, but briefing is a must. Anyone who says they don’t do it, but they still get by in class is *probably* lying. There’s just too much damn information in law texts for someone…

You may find yourself asking “how does everyone make it look so easy?” The best answer I can give you is this – they’re great actors.

March Checklist: What You Should be Doing to be Successful

You have less than 2 months of classes left. I only have 6 weeks of class left. Did you hear me? Less than 2 months. That’s it. This is Defcon 2, y’all. [Fast Pace] You are either thrilled, or practically in a full-blown panic. Halfway through the semester, running low on brain space, trying to keep studying…but you’re also losing steam. Right? No need to hide it. I am exhausted. Let’s be…

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…

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…
