  1. Good luck! I taught law for 32 years and still can remember my first year of law school very clearly, Work hard, but keep your sense of humor and your sense of humanity. Make time for family and friends. And thanks for following my blog. (And if you have any questions about surviving law school, feel free to ask!)

  2. Only know this second hand, but, if it’s anything like California law school, hang in there. The professors will likely try to grind you down a little and it might feel a little like a mental boot camp that seems to go on forever and ever. But, it won’t and again if it’s anything like California’s Loyola, the second year it gets better and you find your stride. A lifetime ago, I went out with a girl through her law school years. Keep your eyes on the target of where you want to go; keep your mind open to the fact your goals might well change; and make the most of it! Gonna fallen you now and thanks for following Aloha Promises Forever. I promise to be less wordy in the future. But, I’m hoping that I’m being encouraging to you!

  3. I practiced law for 25 years. But I still remember my law school days. The old saying is true: the first year they scare you to death; the second year they work you to death; and the third year they bore you to death. :)))) Enjoy!

      1. Still a member of the bar but using the legal skills for policy development. Law firm life of billable hours and lack of work life balance. were not my cup of coffee. The important thing is to enjoy what you are doing and I’m sure you will! πŸ™‚

      2. And I agree with the other comments about professors scaring you in the first year. You know the whole “look to your left, now look to your right, some of you won’t be sitting here next semester” speech. But they were actually right. Our class of 180 quickly became 100. Keep your eye on the prize! Take care!

  5. Welcome to WordPress! I hope you enjoy blogging here, and it seems like you’ve already built yourself a sizable audience! You seem like an interesting person (from reading your other posts), and I wish you the best in your law school experience.

    I also wanted to thank you for your follow and your interest in my blog. Most of what I write about is knitting (but it is something I enjoy tremendously and it has become a part of my identity as a person), but I talk about life, too. I’ve only been blogging here for four months as of today, and so far I have enjoyed it more than any other previous blogging experiences. Have fun!

  6. Best of luck in your pursuits, texaslawstudent. Torts was more interesting than I expected, civpro less so. But that was some time ago. Ha. Stay open to interests that may surprise you … and do the reading! πŸ˜‰

  7. Enjoy it, if you can, but not too much because those mandatory attendance policies are-in fact-mandatory! I flunked second semester Torts for failing to show up to class often enough. Ahhh, water under the bridge. Best of luck.

    Thanks for checking out my blog. I’ve just started working on it, and hope to make it into something. Check back when you have time.

    I do hope we finish this endeavor that we have started.
    Best wished and God Bless πŸ™‚

      1. Sure why not. Our country would be glad to welcome you. πŸ™‚ Visit our beaches and enjoy the sands and sun. BTW, you’re from Texas right? I’m a fan of San Antonio Spurs if you are familiar with basketball. πŸ™‚

      2. Yup. I really liked their basketball system. Have you started your classes already on Law School? I do hope you do well on studies. If ever you plan to go in here, feel free to message me up. I’ll suggest to you places where you can have a good vacation. Hoping for our success on this course that we have enrolled into. πŸ™‚ God bless. πŸ˜€

      3. Hahaha… Is that so? Well, that is the irony of the course. You need to like it even
        though the course taste bitter. πŸ™‚ Just remember to hold on and to finish the race that you have started. My dean said that I need to read and read and read. Maybe you need that too. With regards to fun, well, the fun is already inside you. It is on your part on how to unleash it. hahahahah! have a great time in your course. πŸ™‚

  9. Thanks for the follow, TLS! I didn’t understand much of the ones I posted & am surprised someone else had a clue. πŸ™‚ Poetry doesn’t have to be understood, tho, just faithfully recorded. Kind of like The Study of Law… as you are finding out. There’s not much logic or love in anything ending in “system” – law system, military system, educational, medical, etc – you get the picture! I’ll be looking over your shoulder a bit. Have fun!
    Best, Carol
