Snow in October?!

Yesterday morning, I woke up to find a winter wonderland outside my window. It was a beautiful sight against a backdrop of mountains and birch trees. Too bad the calendar read “October 30th.” Snow before Halloween, nay Thanksgiving even, is a new experience for me. I find it comforting that such an early snowfall is […]

Whoa… we’re half way there…

…and I think a few of us were livin’ on a prayer this week.  Many of us 1Ls had a fairly stressful week.  After a legal writing midterm, a contracts midterm, and a torts paper, I think we are all happy to see the weekend.  I definitely tricked myself into being more nervous than necessary, […]

Learning to Write

Midterms have come and gone and our first real paper is complete. After feeling all too comfortable with the whole law school lifestyle, I spent this past weekend locked away diligently constructing and reconstructing a Civil Procedure paper. Essentially, I spent the weekend trying to condense a 23 to 24 page paper into 15 pages. […]

Even when you finish your reading and assignments for the next day’s or week’s classes, there is still work to be done. Outlines, note reviews, exam prep, internship […]

Timing is Everything

Over the last month and a half I have learned that timing and scheduling are very crucial in law school.  Being able to keep a good, consistent schedule is crucial to having success in studying and staying on track with assignments.  There were a few days were I was pretty sick and became a little […]

A Jaunt to the Coast

We have been blessed with fantastic weather this fall break.  The days leading up to it were grey and rainy, so it was ever more sweet to have a long weekend of 70+ degree weather and sun to light up the brilliant fall colors in the mountains. Vermont will never provide one with the urban […]
