The Waiting Game

With Christmas now behind us, law students across the country must endure the waiting game… waiting to find out our fall semester grades. Now in my 2nd year, this wait is no less agonizing because these grades will affect my 2nd summer associate opportunities. While VLS classes are not unique in making the final exam […]

The Break IS Come

After a long semester of hard work and anxiety, it is great to wake up without any plans and to ask the next relative or friend what the plan is for the day. Even though I won’t have an African Christmas with family, I have gotten used to Christmas in America with good friends. This […]


Careers are made out of the wreckage of plans, folly, hope and trial. We strive and mimic. We make the lives of others, their stories and success, fuel for our own endeavors. If we are lucky the survivors mentor us, teach as they traverse, and we gain wisdom at a discount. Mentoring can be a […]

I Don’t Mind The Appreciation

I think consolation about the fear of Exams comes with a cool touch and encouragement that is VLS Faculty and Staff appreciation of their students for the first two days of exams.  To show that they really love and appreciate our presence, we get breakfast and lunch on both days.  I haven’t been anywhere else […]

Exams Fear!

The mightily dreaded period in time for me, which is exams, is here again.  Oye, even when I study as much as one possibly could for any given exam, I still fear, shiver, twist, turn, and every other possible nightmarish phenomenon one can think of.  There must be another way of testing knowledge without subjecting […]

Melodies for Jeneba Series, last segment.

Morning After

Yesterday was the last day of classes. It’s hard for me to believe that my first semester of law school has come and gone. If every semester goes by this quick, May 2014 will be here before I know it! Yet, I expect the semesters will slow as the newness fades, as law school becomes […]
