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 […]

“One of these days, I’m gonna get organizized”

My goals this year are: (1) Find wonderful opportunities, pursue them, and succeed in them. (2) Have more fun. Laugh much more. (3) Stay organized, efficient, and ahead of deadlines. They are lofty — I don’t like setting goals I won’t have to work to achieve — but not inaccessible. They’re somewhat reactionary, but that’s […]

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 […]

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.

I’d almost forgotten what it felt like to breathe. This year was a total whirlwind: The first week of January, we set a date for our wedding and finished up law school applications. In February, invitations went out, and offers were weighed. In March, we finalized plans to move to Boston and celebrated my birthday […]

Deal or No Deal

In life we all have to make choices. Sometimes there is only one option, and other times there are many. When it comes to final exams, choosing the study method that is most efficient for you personally can be the most important choice of all. If there is anything that can be learned from the […]

Cold Calls, Cold Sweat, and Stone-Cold Confidence

“There’s nothing like the first time!” “Just wait! I was so nervous—all those eyes on me.” “When she says your name, you’ll want to crawl under your desk.” Older students tried to warn me. I laughed. Didn’t they realize I’d been through all this before? I have a bachelor’s degree. I’ve had more than a […]
