Moving along

Once again, time does not stand still during law school.  I’ve blinked and suddenly we’re three weeks into the semester already.  It started slow with a couple of shortened weeks, but the semester is chugging along.  My classes this semester seem pretty good so far, and I am loving that I only have classes four […]

Shout Out to the VLS Gear Shed

So far, Vermont has suffered a lackluster winter. The temperatures have been high, the snow evasive, and the cycle of freeze-thaw-refreeze very annoying. As a Southerner, I must confess that I am not winter’s biggest fan. But since I now live in a state that does winter well, I’m willing to give the season a […]

Having now experienced law school, including, most importantly, final […]

Back at it

It is hard to believe that we have survived (mostly in one piece) the first semester of our 1L year.  I had intentions of a very happy blog posting after my last final, but I got distracted by the huge weight off my shoulders following the completion of exams.  Regardless, it feels SO great to […]
