Monthly Archives: September 2009

I am ready for another break already.  I will haveto wait for a couple of weeks though.  It’s raining outside.  It’s depressing.  My kitten is running all over the place.  I suppose it’s better than her biting the crap out of me.  That reminds me to make an appointment for her to get spaded and […]

I am Behind in My Classes

It is the weekend before week 6. I am behind in my classes. It is raining outside. I am behind in my classes. My dog is throwing up on the couch and needs to go to the vet. I am behind in my classes. I need to work on my friendship with my roommate. I […]

…from the abdomen

Pushing from the center for a new identity. It’s an old idea with new implications.  I am at the end of my student life, in the less than ideal universe of  external forces and mounting pressure to suceed. I close my mouth to avoid letting out too much truth. I bite my lip and get on […]

My week so far…

Thanks, Ben Claassen/Washington City Paper! I went on a walk last night to try to blow off some steam.  It struck me that, for a school of people who want to save the environment, I never see anyone outside enjoying it.  It seems terribly ironic that we are forced to stay indoors with our faces […]

A daily grind is not what it used to be

Admittedly, there is not much to write about his week. Not for lack of enthusiasm, but it definitely seems that I have started to fall into a “daily grind.” Now, this should not be construed as a complaint. After all, I am a law student, I live for structure and organization, even if it is […]

Take a Walk and Enjoy the Fall Season!

Wow, I can not believe how fast the semester is going by! I feel like we all just arrived here on campus, and yet we have been here for a month already! I never thought I could learn as much as I have so quickly – looking at my huge stack of notes it amazes […]

A Lesson in Maturity….

This week I got a wake up call. I realized that its okay to ask for help when you need it. I don’t remember the last time I reached out to a professor or T.A. to ask for help and this week I did it twice. What all the administrators told us during orientation really […]

Tunbridge World’s Fair 2009

This weekend marked the 138th annual Tunbridge World’s Fair. Tunbridge is about 6 miles up the road from VLS. The town hosted visitors from all over New England this weekend for four days of carnival rides, fried food, live music, and of course pig races. I attended the fair this weekend, which gave me a […]

Tunbridge World’s Fair

Everyone was right, this fair is worth going to.  In fact, I would go as far as to say that this fair will change your life. Well, it certainly rocked my world today! My friends came down from Burlington, and even they didn’t know what they were getting themselves into.  We were blown away with […]

Cementing school strategies

When classes first began all of the recommended study methods were swimming through my head.  Be sure to brief every case, bring notes to class, try to answer every question.  The many preparation books all espoused their own fool proof strategies for success as well.  In my view, this cacophony of advice only added to […]
