Thanksgiving in South Royalton

Thanksgiving came at the perfect time as I was burnt out and tired of writing, reading and generally unable to process much more information. This long weekend was just what I needed to push through the final two weeks of classes. Several MELPs and our partners got together and had a wonderful meal on Thursday. […]

Thanksgiving in DC

I had family come to visit me in DC this year for Thanksgiving. I thought back to last year, when I had dinner at Dean Jefferson’s house. She took in all the stray VLSers who couldn’t make it home for the holiday weekend. It was so nice of her, but nothing beats family. I had […]

Livin’ On a Prayer

I spent Saturday in Montpelier exploring their Thanksgiving Farmer’s Market (best thing ever!), shopping and eating Chinese food.  Last night a bunch of friends and I went to a karaoke bar nearby and had the best time!  It is so important to get out of SoRo and doing something in another city every once in […]

Telluride Film Festival

The highlight of this week for me was attending the Telluride Film Festival, which was sponsored by the VLS Environmental Law Society. The Film Festival was held on Wednesday evening in the Chase Center, and was a really nice break from my endless days and nights in the library. It was lovely to sit and […]

Let it snow!

I have been procrastinating putting on my snow tires for over a month. My wall is covered in kindly notes-to-self, but they have a tendency to fall behind my desk. I’m finally going tomorrow, because I secretly hope that putting on snow tires is the equivalent of a rain dance. I have a ski pass, […]

DC VLS Alumni Meet and Greet

Last night there was a small meet and greet at Post Moderne Brasserie. It was fun to see a couple familiar faces currently doing SIPs in the area, and meet some alums who attended VLS before my time there. We had a bit of conversation surrounding Crossroads debauchery, which professors are still around, etc. It […]

Scholarship Opportunity

I was doing some work today, and stumbled across a scholarship that would be awesome for current VLS students. Check out the Gloria Barron Scholarship through the Wilderness Society. Looks like an ideal scholarship for a current or incoming MELP 🙂

Vermont’s Greatest Hits

I would love to go on and on about how much fun I had on the Natural Resources Law field trip to Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park, but I feel that the previous couple posts do the trip justice.  All I have to say is that once in Vermont, the park and mansion are a must see!! […]

Just Add Ghost Hunter To My Resume

This has been quite a weekend. Saturday was the day for our field trip at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park with my Natural Resources Law Class.  It turned out to be a nice day with no rain. We hiked up to The Pogue and then to South Peak to see an amazing view of Woodstock.  After the […]

Rainy, With a Chance of Snow

It has been a long, very long past 10 days. Papers, a memo, lots of reading and so many hours in the library that at times I wonder if I should be paying rent there instead of at my apartment. Plus, the weather has been pretty terrible. It has been snowing in the mountains which […]
