The professor told us it would eventually happen, and as forecast, we received not one but two fantastic snowdays. Now I felt I had misused the first day, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed..twice, and spent most of the day trudging through snow trying to run errands (bad idea). The highlight […]

GWF seeks VLS mentor

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” Will you be the Rilke to my Kappus? I am a 1L seeking someone wiser than […]

Shopping Extravaganza

I went on a shopping trip of epic proportion yesterday. One of the interesting things about living near VLS is that you can make groceries and adventure because you know you will be in transit at least 50 minutes. Combine that with a shopping list two feet long and re-stocking day at Price Chopper and […]

Sorting Stuff Out

I am not quite sure why but it seems almost as if I am getting both less sleep and less work done for my efforts. I will attribute last  semester’s constant energy so the adrenaline of being a first semester 1L. I have to remind myself that I need far more sleep in a reality […]

Good Luck

What a crazy two weeks I’ve had.  I’ve submitted a total of 5 applications for various internship positions and I have had 3 interviews.  I already blogged about my interview with the Vermont Attorney General Environmental Protection Unit.   Since then, I’ve also interviewed with the Upper Valley Land Trust and Toxics Action Center.  Each interview […]

4 Weeks in Wellington

It’s been 4 weeks since I started my SiP!  Time flies.  I only have 12 weeks left of my internship and then 8 days to travel afterwards – 92 days.  I’ve been really enjoying the Semester in Practice.  The people I work with are helpful, knowledgeable, and give feedback on the projects that I work on.  In […]

Attempted Blog

We are four weeks into the second semester.  In many ways it was more difficult to get the gears going this time around than it was in the fall.  Of course, when the school year began we had come from an intense weeklong orientation and were all aquiver with anxious suspense.  That suspense is drawn […]

This weekend was filled with both agony and triumph. I spent about 98% (please note my  math skills are less skill and more tragedy) of my time working on a paper due Monday. My first paper of the semester. Winter break seemed to erase memories of long days at the computer or researching in the […]

Making Progress

This week was one of the most productive weeks I’ve had so far in law school.  I managed to stay on top of my homework, submit two applications for summer internships (one very last-minute), spend quality time with my husband, eat fairly balanced meals everyday, begin applications for three other internships, pick my Advanced Writing […]

lingering thoughts on Chris Hedges.

You come to law school, understanding things are rotten to the core, and you are fortunate enough to shack up in the womb of academia for a few more years so you can really understand the master’s tools, with the hopes of being able to use them to take some much needed stabs at all […]
