#Teacher Humor ~ Why my darlings, Why?!?

19 Jun

Student 👦attends a sum total of 9/22 classes 💻for the semester — not including the last class where we discussed the exam📚. Sends me an urgent email📧, “But Teacher, we have many questions before the test.” . . . . . .

Me 👩 💢 (in my mind. . .) “I don’t think you need to worry about that”.🙄
My actual answer 👩 (😣)”. . . . . I distinctly remember 🤔telling you not to miss any more classes📓 this semester — you missed 🏝three in a row. We discussed the test last class, but you skipped it💤😴.”
Student 👦: “Oh yes teacher. I know!”

Me. . . . SMH🙃😑

The Robot Life – Human Style

8 Jan

We are raising today’s children in sterile, risk-averse and highly structured environments. In so doing, we are failing to cultivate artists, pioneers and entrepreneurs, and instead cultivating a generation of children who can follow the rules in organized sports games, sit for hours in front of screens and mark bubbles on standardized tests.

Gilbert Law Summaries List

23 Apr

Hello! This is for the Law Students/Lawyers who read my stuff 🙂

I have recently discovered that I couldn’t find a good list of Gilbert Law Summaries that are available.  Although most of them are available on Amazon, there are so many new, used, and duplicate names that it is hard to find out what is actually there. However, there isn’t a publisher website to locate or a list I could find elsewhere. So I put my own together!

I have listed them alphabetically here as closely as possible.  There actually aren’t as many as I thought; however, some differ from Emanuel and cover up those holes.  Hope this helps someone else!

2015 Law School Rankings

11 Mar

The Rankings are out! 

US News & World Report has released it’s official list of the US Law Schools ranked in order.  . . Iowa made it out at #27 — a few spots lower than when I entered.  In-State Tuition is $28,047; while Out-Of-State tuition is $49,025.  There are currently 411 students at the school–I was one of those 411!  😛 I made it into a statistic.

All I care about though is that we made it out on top of Fordham.  I studied over the summer with those students, and got a ton of sh** about how “UIowa” was just less than and that I would never be able to work outside of the Mid-West.  Honest to God, one girl looked at me snidely in front of our internship boss (Samsung Head of Department) at a fish dinner and comments, “Well, you’re from like Iowa. . . . I mean, you probably don’t know what a lobster is.  You all eat like raccoon, right?  Lobster is this kind of fish from the sea.”  I kid you not. . . . I just about smacked her.   Anyway, YAY! we beat them in the rankings!

 

 

Law Diploma’s in Folks!

8 Feb

DSC00186I’m so excited!  Dedicating this Law School Diploma to my mom; she got me through it all thick and thin.  Studying Sparknotes, highlighting Emanuel’s, combing through flash cards, and encouraging caffeine drinks.  When I was panicking the night before exams, she was there with cram food and cheerful words. When I got the chance to study abroad, she sent me off with hugs, kisses, and buttloads of prayers. When I needed support, she showed up with her fighting shirt on.  Without her, this wouldn’t have been possible. I love you mom!

 

No More Law School!!!

11 Dec

Celebrate my friends! I have just turned in my last paper for Law School. No more finals, no more law classes, no more laws school!

Yippee!!!!  I’m seriously so excited I might faint.

I Support the Liberty University Family

19 Nov

Many of you know that I am a Liberty University graduate, and a proud one at that.  After reading the articles and the comments coming out, I wanted to say a couple things.

TO THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS:

We like to quote Bible verses and pithy sayings at moments like these, but none of that really meets this kind of situation.  Except one: “Jesus Wept.”  After what happened today, our hearts are breaking for both of you. Liberty is supposed to be a safe place, a home where people are blessed indeed.  Nothing like this is ever supposed to happen.  There are no explanations we can offer, no excuses, no reasons.  This incident is all the more horrific for that, and I have no idea how to even begin to express the strength of our sorrow for you.  Just know  that our thoughts and prayers go with you. I know this school; I know these students. They are good people, and they are thinking of and supporting you, even if you can’t see them.  I know that they are all praying (many on their knees) for you and for your loss.   As parts of the Liberty family, they are extended members of our personal families, and we grieve with you.  

TO THE LIBERTY STUDENTS:

First, remember that this isn’t the time to take sides or to start spouting Continue reading

Lovely Literature: “Leisure”

20 Oct

I first ran across this lovely little poem about a year ago, and it really resonated with me.  Life and school were starting to pile up; and people kept reminding me that it was time to figure out precisely what I wanted to do with my life.  Everyone wanted answers as to “what I was going to do”, “where was I applying”, “where was I going?” I had no idea; well that isn’t actually true.  You see I went to law school with the idea that I could work with an auction house specializing in fine arts. I have been having a love affair with history for years, pretty much since my first history book on the ancient Greeks.  This continued through my undergraduate years, and it was supposed to be part of my employment plans. But then the financial crisis hit, Sallie Mae loans started getting higher and higher, and the jobs scarcer and scarcer.   That high-paying job at the New York law firm dealing with Insurance fraud started sounding a little nicer. Suddenly, I wasn’t so sure what I wanted to do.  I had already been so caught up in school and making sure that my laundry and dishes stayed done that I hadn’t read a history-based book or article in nearly two years. Did it really mean that much to me?–Wouldn’t the monetary reward of a big job be enough?

But that was when God used my world to step in.  Radio stations, news articles, Facebook posts, even those little Pinterest pictures friends sent me–everything around me was suddenly saying: “Stop.” and “Live!” Heck YOLO! was showing up everywhere.  And I came to the realization that it’s true: You only get one chance to enjoy the world.  I don’t care how you depict life after death (or the absence of it), you only Continue reading
