Study!

I am terrified. Only one more week of classes, four days to study, and then finals are upon us. YIKES! Where did the time go? Part of me feels prepared, and yet the other part of me is terrified. It doesn’t help that my mind blanks whenever I think about taking all four of my […]

Oral Argument

I finally completed my oral argument.  It still seems like a year ago when my Legal Writing professor told the class about what Appellate Advocacy involved- which absolutely terrified me.  However, the argument went much better than I expected.  The judges were very friendly and their evaluations were helpful.  It was easy to forget about […]

Still Here

I am frankly at a loss for words this week. My mind is far too full of law right now to fit anything else.  No, I am not up till all hours of the night, but I feel as though my brain has reached its limit, which is unfortunate  given I have two more weeks […]

Hard to believe we only have 2 weeks of classes left. The semester went quickly. I just hope my tests go well, and quickly too. I am not used to taking several tests that are 3-4 hours long. I have no clue how I am going to do the bar exam since it is 2-8 hr. days.

Three weeks!

Apparently, there are only three weeks left before testing begins.  Us 1Ls have turned in our final memos and cleared the table for the review, outlining, and practice testing that will dominate the remainder of the semester.  It all seems so out-of-place.  It’s mid-November in Vermont and it’s been raining!  It’s probably 55 degrees outside right now.  […]

Crunch Time

I promised myself that I’d work really hard up to Thanksgiving so that I could really enjoy that break. However, I still have one outline that has been pitifully left undone, and another that is a shade of being a helpful tool. Even the professors seem to be spazzing out about exams now. I have […]

Mash Up

It has been almost one birth cycle since I lept from the squishy insides of Vermont Law School.  Life, that’s what’s next. It is a total inversion of the spiritual and ethical soft side. You’ve spent three years connecting your faint imaginings, theories, and academic courage to safe haven solutions and understanding audiences. What should […]

Where Has the Semester Gone?

It’s hard to believe that it is the middle of November already and Thanksgiving is nearly a week away. Today is the start of week 12 of 15. The apprehension of final exams are looming around campus. Excitement over Thanksgiving break is getting me through. I cannot wait to go home and relax around the […]

I’d rather have snow than rain

I know it sounds weird, but I am getting a little edgy waiting for the snow. Maybe I am too excited about the prospect of having an actual winter. Also I seem to be harboring the irrational idea that the sooner it comes the sooner it will go away. I should just count my blessings […]

It’s hard to believe that the semester is almost over.  We only have a few weeks left.  I am nervous about tests.  I guess I don’t quite know what to expect.  The one exception is civil procedure since we had a midterm.  However, we will be getting a practice test for contracts tomorrow.  Hopefully, it […]
