General Board / Live alone or have a roommate?
« on: March 06, 2006, 06:41:08 PM »
I will be starting law school this fall and am currently looking at apartments.  Would you recommend living by yourself or having a roommate?  I won't know many, if any, people at my law school (I'll probably be attending Texas Tech) so finding a law school roommate would be pot luck most likely.  Any advice?  Things you wish you had done?

I am a very extroverted person, and I don't think I would enjoy living alone, but I have no clue how law school may affect my desire for time alone.

Any thoughts or personal experiences would be appreciated.

General Off-Topic Board / What is your room's motif?
« on: June 01, 2006, 09:42:44 PM »
So, the other thread got me thinking...how did you "design" your room?  Did it fit with the picture you formed in your head before you moved in?  How did you come up with that style and how long did it take for you to "acquire" everthing, or is it still on going? 

I ask this because I will be moving into a new apartment come August and I am playing with ideas in my head about how I want my place to look.  It is my very first time living alone, so I have absolute control as to how everything looks...and I'm excited about that!!!  I want it to look good, and "finished" if you know what I mean (not a hodge podge assortment of crap, which will be hard b/c I have NO money and have to get my furniture at garage sales...).

Anyways...

What is your motif? (spell check?)

General Off-Topic Board / Invisible Children
« on: April 28, 2006, 01:06:17 AM »
I had seen fliers for this movie, "Invisible Children" all across my campus for the past two weeks.  I thought it was a bunch of peace-nik kids trying to rally American support for some obscure African war.  I was wrong, in a sense.  They are kids...trying to rally American support and get more publicity on the atrocities going on in Sudan and Uganda.  Here are some facts:
  • A war has been going on for 17 years in Sudan
  • To provide bodies for this war, the rebel kidnap young children, between the ages of 8 & 14 and practically brainwash them, making them killing machines
  • These children travel every night, some of them from very far away, to perceived "safe areas" to escape the kidnappings by the rebels
  • How did I NOT know about this?!

For more specifics and facts, check out:  invisiblechildren.com

April 29, 2006 - Global Night Commute.  
Purpose:  To try and get Washington's attention, and the rest of the nation...raising awareness for whats going on in Uganda.
What is it?: Walk one night from your home to a designated area in your town, stay there for the night, and then walk back home...much like the Ugandan children except that you are safe.


This deserves more attention than its getting.  Don't blow it off.  TELL PEOPLE!  HELP! 


DO SOMETHING.

Where should I go next fall? / Were I accepted to Baylor,
« on: April 23, 2006, 01:14:05 AM »
...I would not go now.  The wanton disregard the dean has for his students is horrible!  Apparently, Dean Toben has kicked students out of the 2nd floor of the library during finals.   :o  And I think many of us know the reputation Baylor law has for competitive students...

For calm write-up, at least in my opinion, visit: http://sothebearsays.blogspot.com/  Be sure and read the commentaries too.

Like I said, if I had been accepted to Baylor, this type of consideration (or lack thereof) of their very own students would weigh heavily on my mind.

Just FYI for those of you that still have Baylor in the mix.

General Off-Topic Board / I'm SO UNmotivated!!!
« on: March 20, 2006, 03:52:28 PM »
8 weeks til graduation...all that separates me from that damn diploma are 4 exams, a paper, and a group project.  I'm working on the paper now...Its beautiful outside.  I don't want to be here, and the thing just WON'T write itself!!!  My GPA is practically cemented in, I'm going to law school...I just need to graduate.  I don't care about classes, school, work or anything anymore!

« on: February 27, 2006, 01:49:25 AM »
Ok, my background:  parents paid for everything during UG.  I am wholly dependent on them for financial support. 

Question:  On the FAFSA worksheet B, what do I put for money recieved/paid on my behalf?

thanks!

Law School Applications / Baylor Status Check
« on: January 17, 2006, 11:50:11 AM »
So, I have been checking my status a lot over the break, to find the same thing everyday.  I checked it again today and got an error message.  Is anyone else getting this same thing?  Maybe they are about to churn out the next round of decisions??

So, all the anticipation/dread surrounding applications, decisions already has my heart in my throat.  Add to it a new "interest" in my life.  Geez...I swear I need blood pressure meds now.   :P
