Team Me

I am a workaholic. I know that about myself. I tend to dedicate full force to whatever it is I have committed myself. I tend to neglect my physical, emotional, and mental health. Last year, I stressed too much about school and pushed myself harder than ever to improve my grades. By the end of […]

New Building, New You

Within a few days of returning to the brand new Redstone building, the transition occurs quickly. Everyone is excited to see one another again and trade summer stories that range from work experiences to new adventures. For those of us who were the last to see the tower before its renovation, we eagerly examined and […]

Finals, we meet again.

Now with nearly a year under my belt, I  admit I feel so much differently about finals. Firstly, the stress level is high but it is not crippling me or causing me to cry almost every other night. Secondly, after seeing so many things I did wrong, I corrected bad habits this semester so I […]

Moot Court Fears

The Socratic method can be a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing when you have lively discussion and listen to people ask questions you may also have but are too scared to articulate or cannot even form words coherently to ask. The curse is when you freeze up with anxiety or you have […]

Time Flies

I cannot believe I am nearly finished with my first year of law school. Simply typing the sentence makes me shake a little. When I started law school, I was fresh faced, alert, and nervous, and I am finishing my first year fairly exhausted and anxious. This spring semester is so much more difficult than […]

The Strange Things I Miss About Home

There are many things I miss doing since I moved to Boston. Meeting my best friends for drinks, driving, and warmer weather as of March 1, but you start to realize interesting things you miss. For instance, based on my Google search, there are 0 Krispy Kreme Doughnut locations and I miss seeing the neon […]

Marriage and Law School

My first impression of law school was it would be full of single people, but to my surprise there is a healthy sized range of age, experiences, and statuses. There are students in their early to mid-20s, students closer to my age in their late 20s/early 30s, and slightly older. Some students are in relationships […]

Winter Wonderland

Since friends and family knew I was moving to Boston, everyone has warned me of the dreaded winters and nor’easters. I’ve been waiting hesitantly since December for a great storm and several feet of snow with harsh and bitter cold. Thus far, it has been a fairly mild winter in my book. Keep in mind, […]

Network, network, network!

The idea of networking seems to strike fear into the hearts of the meek. It feels formal and daunting. It pushes shy people far outside their comfort zone. I’ll admit that it can be incredibly intimidating, but it is one of the greatest skills you can gain. Before I started law school, I recall my […]

Grades…dun, dun, dun!

Well, grades were posted this last week, and everyone I knew held their breaths while they refreshed their browser anxiously waiting to see that letter representation of their hard work. When I finally saw my grades, my heart skipped a few beats. I was disappointed. I did not know what to expect, but what I […]
