Snow-covered Mountains

ORIGINALLY POSTED 12/2/11–Well, it’s crunch time people…and I’m in the thick of things. Finals began on Monday with the remainder of Civil Procedure. I think it went well, but a three-hour test in the evening sure wears you out. I’m not commuting during this week or next and am staying with my friend, Leah, in Dallas, so I’ve had more time to study.  With no classes to differentiate one day from the next, I didn’t even realize until this evening that it’s already Wednesday. I had a couple of things on my calendar that had to be done today, and well, they weren’t.

It didn’t help either that I was basically incommunicado today because the weather threw a wrench into my plans. I was on my way out when Leah informed me that it was snowing. So, I did what any normal Texan would do in such a case: I got my camera.  After taking a few pictures and marveling at the huge flakes, I refocused and got back on track. At the gas station the snow continued to fall and although it wasn’t sticking, it made me reconsider getting out in the weather. I grabbed some coffee and backtracked to the house. Lucky (or not?) for me, I have no internet at the house and so I had no choice but to work on my ConLaw outline with no temptations from Facebook or email.  It took every ounce of will I had, but right around 7:30 pm I received my reward: a fully complete outline…all 64 pages worth. Now, I just have to memorize it by Tuesday. Yay!

Next week I have my last three finals and Fall 2009 will be in the books. ConLaw and Property are mountains in my path, but I shall overcome. Right now, there’s more studying to be done.  I’ll be back to work at the University of Texas System after finals. I can’t wait to see all my friends again and celebrate the end of another fine semester. Until then, keep the emails coming and keep sending all your positive energy!

About LegalTrenches

I graduated law school in May 2012 and have been blogging about my experience as a non-traditional student since my 2L year. I live over 200 miles from my law school and so I commuted two round trips a week from the beginning. I put almost 1000 miles a week on my car. Law school is crazy. It's even crazier as a non-traditional commuter student, but I wouldn't have had it any other way! I blogged my way through bar prep and sat for the July 2012 Texas Bar exam. Hopefully some of my experiences will help out those taking the bar exam after me. On Nov. 1, 2012, I received my bar results and became an officially licensed Texas lawyer! Follow me as I transition into the legal world as a brand new baby lawyer. I'll try to keep it light and promise to keep it real.
