A Day in the Life of a Law Student

Posted by a fellow Law School blogger! This post does a great job of laying out what a average day for a law student looks like. Be sure to follow Emily’s blog “This Law School Life” for more amazing posts! 😀

This Law School Life

This post was requested by Latoya (ie. LawToyaTalks…go follow her right now if you don’t already!)  I was planning on doing a post like this regardless, but her request prompted me to do this a little bit earlier.  She asked me to write a post about a typical day in the life of a law student.  Since I just finished my 1L year, I’ll write about what a typical day was like…once 2L starts I’m sure it will be different and I’ll write another post. But for now, a glimpse into a normal day this past semester for me.

7:00-7:15 — Wake up.  Coffee, always.  Note to the caffeine dependent… this is not the time to decide to quit.  Get ready for the day, grab my books and laptop, and something quick for breakfast, usually a granola bar.

8:00-9:15 — Class

9:15-12:00 — Break between classes.  Usually during this time…

Black In America #BlackLivesMatter

This morning I am sick. Sad. Pissed. Disgusted. Hurt. Frustrated.

Last night, an armed WHITE man in Charleston S.C walked in to a historically BLACK church and opened fire on the church’s members during bible study, killing 9. (CNN) A 5-year-old in the church says she played dead, so the gunman wouldn’t shoot her too. This man gunned down BLACK people, in their sanctuary. In CHURCH, where the black community goes for comfort & unity & strength to face the shit we are put through on a daily basis in this country.

This is our REALITY. This is our everyday. We wake up to this, EVERYDAY. In our homes, in our churches, in our neighborhoods we are hunted, hated and targeted.

We can’t :

Walk on the street

Wear hoodies

Be transgender

Go to the pool

Be outside at night

Play with toy guns

Walk around in Wal-Mart

Listen to music in our Cars

Sleep in our homes

Cheer at graduations

Play in a public park

Go to bible study

Raise our arms in surrender





Without being KILLED.


12 hours later & this terrorist is still at large. Alive. To be white in America is to be Free.

Rachel Dolezal, is RACE FLUID today?

Rest in Peace to the 9 people who lost their lives last night & Rest in Peace to the thousands who died before them at the hands of racist bigots. #BlackLivesMatter


Where the Heck have I been?
