It can happen because it did. Nothing is impossible and anything is possible buddy.

I'm 2 Blessed 2B Stressed. I usually don't post because by the time I get a chance to log on it's already 20-25 pages into the thread but I have read post where people were damn near ready to meet at the corner store. Not everyone can take hostile comments or some get very emotional when dealing with topics that they feel strongly about. That's just the way some people are. Luckily for you it's just the internet or I might just have to show you how multi-tasked mothers are.LOL

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: Relationship Dealbreakers
« on: May 30, 2006, 06:46:10 PM »
I can understand Blue on being a selfish individual and not wanting to share your mate with anyone but that's exactly what it is selfish. There are plenty of women that could give you the world and be the best mother, lover and friend to those that mean most to her. There are women that do put men before their children and they should be ashamed. I hate to see a mother dressed to kill with hair, nails and purse to match and they have their kids with runny noses and pissy diapers but not everywoman is like that. I respect your opinion I just don't think it should be a dealbreaker.

alot of guys are very wary of dating women with kids

if were dating you, we want to be your #1 priority

but, if you do make us your #1, then we would think your a bad mom...

maybe dating another parent is for the best....

I have to disagree. Most of the men that I do date are not parents and if they are they don't have full custody so that comparison is wrong. Think about it if you had a kid and she/he was only with you on the weekends but you dated someone who had a kid 7 days out of the week it would still be a conflict of interest don't you think. Most of the men I date don't have kids and my son is my number #1 priority and he will be until he's grown and then he still will be my number #1 priority. That dosenít mean that I don't have time to date or have a serious relationship. It's all about balance. Work and school make it hard for me to date not my son.
Let me ask you this when you get married and you have a child if your wife spends some quality time with you does that make her a bad mom?

No kids (call me an a-hole if you want)

It appears black men do not believe in condoms or the ones we get we must be busting through them, I dunno. Either that or black women don't get abortions in the same proportion other women do.

Ok, maybe I need to start a new thread but what is the deal with people with kids. I really need to know what the perspective is on single mothers. I never had a problem with men at all but the first thing that people ask is "do you have kids" and "then do you have stretch marks?" I'm like WTF. I answer yes I have a son and no I donít have a stretch mark on my body but why is that associated with having kids?  I have no problem admitting I am someoneís baby mama even though I was once his fiancť my son is about to be 7yrs old. I have no baby daddy drama and he has none from me. That didn't stop me from pursuing anything. I feel that as long as someone is able to support their kids and does support them having kids shouldn't be a deal breaker. Now when you get up there past 3 and your still 20-25 then I have an issue but besides that I would like to know the big deal. Please enlighten me.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: To Spank or Not to Spank
« on: May 16, 2006, 07:40:08 PM »
Honestly if my son gets out of hand I will spank him and I make sure he knows the reason why. Being a single mother I will have no choice to raise my son with respect and let him know that I am the boss and if he wants to act out of character then I am here to let him know that Iím in charge. I hate to see kids in the store talk back to their parents and throw things. Once I was in Wal-Mart and I believe the child was between 4 or 5 and when she asked her mother for something her mother said no and she threw a fit, fell on the floor kicking and screaming even told her to stay away from her b***h. I wanted to spank her myself. Thatís just crazy. I was disciplined to the point to where I knew what was right and what was wrong I knew what I could get away with and what I wouldnít at a young age and I turned out fine. I believe itís the lack of discipline that mothers and fathers have over their children which has the generation acting like their the parents and the parents are the kids or their friends. Its one thing to have your child be your friend and him/her treat you like you are one of the friends at school or on the corner. I work at the section 8 office and often I see young mothers dress better than their kids, they let their kids cuss and think itís cute, they let them destroy property, tell them no, slap their hands if they dare even think of raising it at them. Itís crazy Iím 25 and I wish I would even raise my voice to my mother I can see her jumping through the phone and she never beat me but she always let me know who was the boss and she still does and I love her 4 it 2day!

Law School Applications / Is this a good thing?
« on: March 06, 2006, 06:25:43 PM »
I had given up all hope of going to LS this year. With all of my soft factors and G.P.A my LSAT just didn't cut it. Well, I seen an admissions director at a confrence I was attending for my job. We remembered each other because I went to every open house and forum that the LS had to offer.

When I spoke with the director of admissions and she told me that due to my low DEC LSAT score (I had not even mentioned my score) that she will hold my application until I re-take in June. She advised me that she was going to switch my prefrence to part-time and to bring my June LSAT up by 10 points. Does that mean that I still have a chance to go to LS 2006?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Tier 3 and 4 Acceptances and Rejections
« on: February 15, 2006, 11:29:50 AM »
Well I am in the same boat as your friend. I however took the test in Oct cancelled and took the test again in DEC 139. I went into a total depression state being that I had been studying for the test since April and all of my pratice test were 155 and higher. I still applied to 15 schools and pray that I get into one. However I do have soft factors being a single mother, URM, worked over time while in college and while studying for the LSAT. I still took the chance and applied what's the worse that can happen besides I won't go to school this year. I have already received some rejections explained to some of the schools that I would like them to hold my applications until I retake in June. Now it's up to me to do something about it. I wasted $$$ I din't have but if I didn't take the chance of not applying because then I would of never known. I still have yet to hear from 9 schools. Tell your friend to study, study, study and retake when he feels it is time. Truthfully I haven't picked up a LSAT book since I took the DEC test. I have weighed out other avenues and thought of getting my Masters in I dunno. I came to realize that Law School is what really matters most and that by any means the LSAT will fail to destroy me!

Studying for the LSAT / Is It Worth It?
« on: January 25, 2006, 01:00:57 PM »
I took the testmasters course for the October test and completley bombed. I mean I went from taking diagnostics ranging from 150-162 and ended up scoring a 139 on my actual test which I took in DEC. I have came to the conclusion that I will not be accepted to any of the 15 schools I applied to with that score no matter how good my PS or my LOR. I have decided not to take the FEB test and wait until June. Is taking testmasters over again worth the 625.00? I tried to study by myself but it's just not working.

LSAT horror stories / I am Convinced I'm not going 2 school 06
« on: January 20, 2006, 05:53:57 PM »
Ok so I made a dumb mistake by applying to schools before I recieved my LSAT score. That's only because I was scoring high on my diagnostic and didn't want to wait until January to apply. Well with my score of a 139 I have no hope of getting into any of the law schools I applied for. I am going to retake Testmasters and just wait for June. I'm so depressed.
