I was hoping this morning that I would be able to blog again today. This month has been so busy, and these next couple of weeks are pretty much the “pinacle” of this incredibly hectic semester. Once November rolls around, everyone pretty much understands that finals are coming up and it’s time to get organized.

I wrote in my last blog that I was still working on figuring out how I would juggle the demands of this semester. Luckily, I’ve started to feel like I’ve “settled in” and will be able to be successful. However, this is not without a LOT of help from family and friends.

Well, I’ve started my third year and last semester at the University of Tulsa College of Law. Although I would have never thought I’d say this when I first started, it has gone by incredibly fast. Law school is a journey, with stumbles and pitfals along the way, but the experiences I’ve shared with fellow collegues and friends could never be replaced.

I hope your semester is winding down. Oklahoma, it’s something else. So we made the stupid decision to move before the semester is over. If you have ever contemplated this decision, just go ahead and don’t follow through with it. Last night, we picked up the U-Haul at 5:00 and by 6:00 we had hail and tornado warnings. An hour later the sun was shining and it was about 70 degrees. The weather is always…interesting. Picking out an outfit that will be suitable for the entire day is always a challenge, but it brings a great deal of personal satisfaction whenever you’re successful.

As I sit here and try to figure out where to take this blog, I can’t help thinking about the end and the beginning of my law school career. A lot has changed.
I came to the University of Tulsa College of Law in the Fall of 2009. Unlike many of you, I did not have the privilege of considering other law schools to attend. I would have to go to the law school where my husband was offered a job. Luckily, after a few years of waiting to move to a city with a law school, my husband was offered a job here in Tulsa. It was a wonderful feeling to know that I finally was going to go to law school after waiting anxiously for a couple of years for my opportunity to embark on my legal dream.

I used to be a stress eater. If there was a fifty page reading assignment for a class and I thought I was getting called on, you can bet I’d stuff my face with twelve taquitos at one in the morning. I’m sure some of you can relate to the impulse I’m talking about. It’s a reflex. Stress. Reach for sour cream and onion chips. Anxiety. Buy two day old cupcakes from the grocery store. Plans don’t work out. Go to the drive thru.

Returning this week to the blogosphere is everyone who blogs weekly as a part of their ambassador duties…and me! Honestly, I was struggling what to blog about. I feel like we have covered most topics that I can think of (which, given that the spectrum of analysis is limited to my brain, we are probably talking about a very limited spectrum of thought). Alas, I have thougt of something else to write about. It’s just so happens this mid-20’s development is something I’m presently experiencing. That experience is the transition of the moment while looking at the big picture.

Whew!! It’s Monday, and during this blog, I’m going to talk about what my weekend was like. I’m hoping it might give you an idea of what kind of juggling sometimes has to be done in order to fulfill homework obligations and keep comittments to everyone else in your life.

In lieu of it being the day after the Academy Awards (a.k.a. the Oscars), I’ve decided to make this blog a review of law-related movies. Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m bit of a movie snob. Yes, I base my selection of movies to watch through the review of critics and I choose the movies I need to watch based on the Academy Awards (I am unable to watch most of the movies nominated for an award before the Oscars because, well you know, I’m here all the time, living the dream, and reading law books and writing briefs. I catch up on my movie watching during the summer.).

It seems crazy that I’m on the home stretch. I was thinking the other night about the night before my first day of classes. At TU, we have some on-campus apartments that are really popular for first-year law students. So, like most of my classmates, I moved in the Friday before we had orientation and went to orientation from Sunday-Wednesday. After orientation ended that Wednesday, we had four days until classes officially started that following Monday. I remember I got out my iPod and my buds on Sunday night and went for a walk around campus. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and I was stoked!
