It is fair to say much of your academic life in law school will center on your courses. The classes you take are the vehicle for teaching you the law and how to understand it. Administrators spend great time crafting academic schedules of offered courses each semester. Professors take great care in constructing the particular classes they teach. Both the administrators and the professors focus a lot of attention to the details of the academic curriculum they offer and teach. As a consequence, you stand to be challenged—to your ultimate betterment—from your legal education at the University of Tulsa College Of Law.

It is important in your first semester of law school to stay focused. This includes making sure that you stay current on your school work while at the same time maintaining a balanced life. In order to achieve this, I personally approached law school like a job where I put in a certain number of hours-per-day. Such an approach left time for other activities like socializing with friends, going to the gym, and spending time with family.

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.
