Second semester progress

Posted by newlawmom on February 2, 2009

Time goes too fast.  It’s already time for starting/updating outlines. I have applied for seven jobs, including one awesome one at a hospital which is where I really want to be right now. I need to find more things to apply for. I have 23 more copies of my resume and stamps at the ready. Only one application was done via email. Somehow an email cover letter seems a bit unprofessional. But that’s what they wanted, so that’s what I sent. The job hunt is high on my priority for this, but if I was smart I would have had this done in December. Many good jobs are lost because I wasn’t aware of these deadlines. Many more come up on the 15th of February. I need a law job this summer. It doesn’t need to pay, but I do need to have one. So…

On the studying front – I spent alot of time this weekend catching up and getting a bit ahead on my reading. Mission accomplished. This week we will be discussing oral arguments in legal writing and research. I am nervous about this, but I think we won’t actually start until sometime in late March so I still have time to get ready. I have a study group for contracts and we just got back into our meeting schedule last week. We will meet Thursday to work on our outline and discuss recent cases. I may or may not decide to find a group for Property. In Con Law and Civ Pro I’m going solo.  That’s about it.

The weather was perfect today. I enjoyed getting outside for a bit even though it is still winter. Less than a month to go until March. I can’t wait. I hope all my readers get a chance to get some sunshine and fresh air. It is good for the mind, body, and soul. Enjoy.
