One More Week Down

At the end of each week, I feel like the previous weekend was a whole lifetime ago. Ironically, the week itself doesn’t feel that long when I’m in the middle of it, something for which I can be thankful!! This week was shortened by a day, due to a trial observation in Dallas on Friday. … Continue reading


Equals 27% done!! Or 14 out of 47 days, which equals 33 left. I prefer the first calculation, because the number sounds so much bigger. 🙂 This past week I had my first advocacy exercise – Opening Statements.

Yesterday in class I found myself suddenly craving a Pumpkin Spice Latte…or pumpkin pudding. Get ready for lots of pumpkin this fall!! Then today, I got this email … Continue reading

Deja Vu

Remember the memo my class got at the end of week one during our first year of law school? Guess what I’m writing this weekend? Another class memo…given by the same professor that gave us that first memo…again, given on the last day of the first week of classes. Oh the irony…and don’t worry, I … Continue reading
