Beautiful Weather

Another gorgeous California day! Not a cloud in sight and pleasant temps. Yesterday was actually getting on the toasty side (relative to my Seattle tolerance 🙂 with a high of 81 at Stanford. Today, the ocean breeze picked up and it kept the high temperature to a comfortable 71.5 degrees. I got some quality work…

LRW complete

Another indication that first year of law school is winding down – today was the last legal research and writing class. We talked about some tips for summer employment and then went to a Japanese restaurant in Palo Alto for some sushi. This spot is not as good as Sushitomi in Mountain View, but I…

Alarming News

While the news in this article on CNN.com did not surprise me, it is still very alarming. Scientists have concluded that the only logical source for last years unprecedented hurricane season is the increasing content of greenhouse gases warming ocean waters and melting away polar ice caps. The evidence is more compelling than last years…

Allergies

All the rain this spring has resulted in an explosion of weeds and pollen. The unfortunate result for me is agonizingly itchy eyes. A simple touch will trigger a compulsive urge to itch and keeping itching leaving my eyes red and my patience tested. It sucks, I hope it magically disappears soon on day. Today…

Law Prom

Once again, high expectations yield anticlimactic results. The law formal (or law prom) was not the “party of the year” I thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a good time, but definitely not something to write home about. The location was great, I think they put most of the funds…

Law School Formal

Tonight is the Law School Formal. The buses leave for San Francisco at 8 pm. The party will be at the Old Federal Reserve Building. I am really looking forward to the food and drink offerings. Here is the description of the building: “One of San Francisco’s most opulent event spaces, the Old Federal Reserve…

Earth Day!

Tomorrow is Earth Day! Take a moment and appreciate nature and the value of a clean, green environment – the earth is truly a beautiful place! Humans are inextricably linked to the ecosystem and the vitality of this world. Our actions not only effect the plants and animals, but ourselves. Global warming and human-induced climate…

La Bamba

I am tired and I am already thinking about sleeping in Saturday morning even though it’s only Thursday and I have to wake up for Property tomorrow. Today seemed much more active than it should be for a one-class day. Right after property I had a CA interview. Next, I read property for tomorrow, read…

Beautiful Day

Another beautiful Cali day filled with sunshine and a deep blue sky. A slight breeze made for comfortable temps. The NBA match-ups are set for the playoffs and I am really pumped. Chicago looks really good right now and I think they will give the Miami heat a fight. Also, I think Indiana could hang…

Oral Arguments

It’s Tuesday so it was busy. Lots of class and oral arguments for lrw to top it off. Classes were all interesting today and the oral arguments were really fun. I thought I hammered my argument well, especially the rebuttal. It was a great experience. Maybe I really should chose a litigation career path? Aside…

Busy

Busy day today with lots more to do, so this post is going to be short. There is a ton of reading to do for various classes and oral arguments for moot court tomorrow. The picture is related in that it symbolizes the balancing inherent in much of the law, but otherwise I am just…

NBA playoffs

Yesterday I went to a fun party. It was an off-campus law school party with many of the second and third year students. I enjoyed the drinks and atmosphere. I went to bed a bit too late and got a headache at some point late last night, but I felt good in the morning. The…
