I moved home for the summer. I’m in Asheville. Home is supposed to be safe space, full of love and warmth. Last week, the Asheville police department destroyed a medic station in downtown during a protest. Masks and medical supplies were burned. Water bottles punctured. EMTs, doctors, and nurses pushed aside, some even to the … Continue reading #BLM
Before turning 21, drinking was this weird thing I considered very grown up, but also youthful. Alcohol was surrounded by a gauze of mysticism. How would it make me feel? Do I want to risk getting into trouble? How much is too much? How does one make a mixed drink? Honestly, before college, I thought … Continue reading Good lord what do I even call this other than a weird rant
Today is the first day of my second semester at Mercer Law! While I'm not necessarily looking forward to being back in the classroom after such a nice break, I am ready to take whatever challenges come my way. Here's to struggling my way through semester number two!
2019 was a wild year for me. I applied to law schools, accepted a full scholarship to Mercer, graduated from the University of Georgia, had an internship with the UGA Performing Arts Center, mentored a group of freshmen, gave tours of my favorite school, traveled out of the country, moved to Macon, and started my … Continue reading Hello 2020!
If you've been following the blog since the beginning, you've probably noticed that I used to be all about studying tips and school. I've since expanded into more of a lifestyle blog, but I love to drop a quick post about productivity here and there. I've been using some of the same apps off and … Continue reading Productivity Apps to Help You Ace Your Finals
I thought that, upon leaving undergrad, midterms would be a thing of the past. Little did I know, October is a hell month no mater what level of school you're in. I found that my usual way of studying no longer worked as well for the upcoming tests, so I decided to change it up … Continue reading How I Studied for my Law School Midterms
The weather has finally decided to drop below 90 in Macon, Ga and I am already pulling out all the sweaters I own in preparation for some chilly fall days. It might not get below 60 for another month, but hey, I'll take what I can get! I have two more midterms before the barrage … Continue reading It’s Fall Y’all
If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my post about going to the Marina concert last month in Atlanta. I hadn't listened to Marina (then Marina and the Diamonds) since high school. When my friend offered me a concert ticket to one of her shows I jumped at the chance. We made flower … Continue reading Marina Concert, Midterms, and a Fall Playlist
Going into my first week of law school, a friend told me that I would feel like I didn’t belong for pretty much the entire first semester I was at Mercer Law. I brushed it off. I went from a small North Carolina high school to the University of Georgia knowing practically no one. I … Continue reading Facing Imposter Syndrome in Law School
Now that my first week of classes is done, I've officially settled into my new home in Macon. My little house is super cute, and I'm excited that my room has a little more "depth" to it than just four plain white walls. Most of my decorations are little things that I've collected over the … Continue reading Law School Room Tour
