Enjoying The Ride

The holidays are a time for travelling. The roads are crowded with people heading home to visit their families. Sometimes it can take more time than expected to reach your final destination, but when you finally do it feels great. Too often we’re so focused on getting wherever we’re going that we forget to actually […]

Love on the rocks: Your relationship in law school

To honor the month of love, I thought I’d offer a few perspectives on surviving law school with your relationship intact. Being a law student is tough enough; add in your significant other and things can get a bit crazy. As in sleep-deprived, stress-eating, all-nighters-at-the-library crazy. My boyfriend and I were dating before I started […]

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 […]

I’ve learned who’s quiet but hilarious, seen inside jokes evolve in the space […]

Date Night (and Day) in Boston

If you read my previous post, you’ll know that I am c-r-a-z-y busy this semester with five classes and Legal Follies. Although it was overwhelming at first, I’ve settled into a rhythm and the ultra-full schedule has just made me ultra-efficient in my work. However, it has changed how Rob and I are able to […]

Negotiating in Good Faith: the Long Term Relationship & Law School

If you’re in a long-term relationship and getting ready to enter law school you may have noticed by now that every ‘what to expect during the first year of law school’ advice books warn you that you’re almost certainly going to break up.  I am in a long-distance, long-term relationship myself, so I thought I […]

Success: A Balancing Act

It’s noon on the day after Thanksgiving and I’m taking a few hours to work at a local coffee shop while my family is out Black Friday shopping. It’s only a few weeks until exam time, and yet it’s also the beginning of the holiday season. What better time to write about balancing law school […]
