This is what I did last week...

This past week I was working with 16 other Regent law students for The Pro Bono Project in New Orleans, Louisiana. This picture was taken during a tour we were given in a neighborhood that was near the levy that broke and flooded the whole area causing much devastating and destruction. Even 9 months after Katrina, New Orleans is struggling to get back on its feet. On the way in, I saw whole apartment complexes and neighborhoods abandoned. Houses were missing their roofs, and some were completely collapsed. There is still a lot to be done, but city is hopeful and slowly rebuilding. It was a great experience.

To hear more about what I was up to check out .

I plan to put up some more pictures later. Night all!

Already, I have left finals far...behind

Checking in here from New Orleans!! Let me recap first though classes.

My last final, Torts, was on May 2nd. I am not sure how I feel about that one yet, but I am happy to have it behind me. It was part essay, part short answer, part mutiple choice - the latter which I found most difficult. It was hard to be motivated to study as well. Of course, it didn't help that one of my roommates friends moved in for the summer, and brought his 61 inch TV and PlayStation 2. It was a nice break though after our second to last final, playing some NCAA Football 2006.

Once school was out, I have actually been staying up later, hanging out with other students, eating out, watching a movie, etc. Thursday afternoon SBA hosted a cookout down at Sandbridged, at which we ate, played volleyball, and even a little flag football right on the beach. Fun times.

Friday night I helped with the Graduation Banquet for the Class of 2006. It was fun to hear some of the funny stories professors and students had to tell of their time over the past 3 years. Makes me look forward to my graduation with Class of 2008 (if I pass!). :) We worked till about 9:45pm, and then a small group of us went to see Mission Impossible 3. IT was a pretty good flick. I got home about 12:15am, with an impossible mission of my own - pack for the next morning!! I didnt' get everything around and in bed till 3:30pm!! Had to meet with the group for Regent at 9:30am Saturday morning. We were on our way by 10:30.

We are heading out soon for dinner. I will get back to talk about what I am doing here and how busy my summer is going to be. For now...L8r!!
