Another Day in the Library

There is so much to be involved in here at VLS. Take your pick really, we have the Environmental Law Society, rugby, a wine society, the International Law Society, the Student Bar Association, the list goes on and on.  It can be overwhelming to read the daily emails, and wonder how you could possibly have […]

I Got a Pocketful of Sunshine

If you went to the movies with me this past week you will understand the reference to my title.  No, I don’t really have a pocketful of sunshine but I did have a pretty crazy week.  Do you remember that scene in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy is caught in the tornado and she […]


I spent Saturday in Pennsylvania at Hawk Mountain. I was hoping to catch a spectacular migration showing, but unfortunately the weather was awesome for the birds, bad for the watchers. A clear sky with barely any breeze made migrants, that would have normally hugged the ridge-line, ride the thermals high up into the sky until […]

Lots of Work, but a Little Play

The first three week of classes were stressful.  However, after meeting everyone and getting in the swing of things, the days are flying by.  It’s hard to believe that I’ve been in Vermont for five weeks already.  I am from Georgia and for undergrad I went to the University of Georgia, a very large state […]

Crazy Week

Saturday I spent the beautiful sunny day in Burlington with a bunch of friends.  Let me tell you, Burlington is beautiful and after seeing Lake Champlain for the first time in my life, I realized why everyone always has great things to say about that town.  I spent the day weaving in and out of […]

Is Studying Like Riding a Bike?

I graduated from my undergrad institution in 2001, and promptly entered the working world. Needless to say, I didn’t do much studying. Sure, I crammed for work related events, researching and writing publications but really, I haven’t throw myself at the mercy of academia for almost 10 years. So these first few weeks of getting […]

On the other effects of war…

I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to use this new (new to me anyway) media known as the blog. Do I want my blog to be personal? Should I write about my most mundane experiences or only the most exciting? How much information about myself do I want floating in the blogosphere? How […]

A New Start

We are almost done with our second week of classes and its hard to believe (BUT awesome!) that we’re already getting into some of the nitty-gritty of environmental policies.  Congrats to all my fellow Master’s students for getting through the first couple weeks! Now to back track a little bit…I moved to South Royalton from […]

Fall is On the Way

As the VLSers get back to school, fall appears to be inching its way toward D.C. today as well. Having been a student my entire life up until now, September, rather than January, is the start of the new year. I walk to the Metro/from the Metro to the office every day, and today was […]

Just a Small Town Girl

I did it! I successfully completed my first week in the Masters program. So many questions ran through my mind during the first few weeks in SoRo. Will I like it here? How hard will my classes be this semester? Will I make new friends? How do I work this gas heater in my room? […]
