NEIGHBORHOOD HOT

NEIGHBORHOOD HOT

 Often times people make moves when things are “perfect” at the time. Everything looks good but no thorough inspection is given. It’s like moving into a neighborhood in the winter.


 As the old saying goes “you never know a neighborhood until it’s the summertime”. When the summer come around the heat brings the people out and allows the true essence of the neighborhood to show.

 When the heat of life pressures us we are forced to come out “winter bubble” and face the summertime madness. We face the summertime madness by emerging from our “perfect” comfortable position and make a calculated decision by facing the uncomfortable heat. Only then will we know what we’re truly made of.

HIGHLIGHTERS SAVED MY LIFE

HIGHLIGHTERS SAVED MY LIFE

IMG_1044.JPG




 Its finals time for school and that means even more reading and studying than the ungodly amount already required. During these periods I’ve been using a highlighter a whole lot. Now previously before the law school experience it was rare I used a highlighter but now I keep one with me like its a strap lmao. It then hit me that highlighters really are the saving to grace to understanding and learning.

 I use the highlighters to make an emphasis on ideas that sticks out to me and it makes recalling the information very easy because it jumps right out the page.

 I also use highlighters a lot when I read my bible, so if I’m just freelancing through the book, I can just read the standout verses I like to read everyday.

 Highlighters should be propped up more in society as they are a tool for the brain that makes organization a breeze. So what are you waiting for? Start highlighting today.

TO GIVE IT A CHANCE

 TO GIVE IT A CHANCE




 Much of my life I’ve been picky about the things I like. Whether its food or music or clothing, I stuck to what I really liked and that was it. But as we grow so do our interests and this is ok. New times can often change perspective.

 I thought about this when I seen a poster for the upcoming GUNDAM movie. First thought..”Boy this is going to be trash”. Then I thought “Wait..I thought the same thing of the Transformers movies (first one was good the rest was garbage)” and I loved the first Transformers but I hated the cartoons and I don’t really have a thing for robots.

 If we don’t at least give some things a chance then we will never really know if we don’t like it. Now some things don’t have to be tried but as far extracurriculars/interests a second look can always payoff rather than just writing something off because it isn’t immediately peaking interest.

 New technology would never be able to thrive if things weren’t given a chance. Like voice is about to become a big staple in our culture. It sounds uninteresting now because that aren’t what we’re used to but we weren’t used to supercomputers just hanging in our pockets either. So what have you written off lately? It may time to revisit that thing and give it a chance for once.

LACK OF THE “REACH BACK”

LACK OF THE “REACH BACK”



Today, I was watching THE JUMP and Kobe Bryant was a featured guest (via telephone) and he discussed his thoughts on Lebron joining the coveted LAKERS franchise.

He said a profound statement in which he spoke on how the Lakers housed plenty of hall of famers who can provide proper insight for Lebron on how to lead the Lakers to the forefront of NBA dominance once more.

That sparked an idea in me, that statement attributes to the multiple reasons why it’s hard for some people to bear the burden of the responsibility to succeed.

  🗣 LAKESHOOOOOOW

Many people are first generation of whatever they are doing; college students, athletes, entrepreneurs,etc. There’s a lack of people for those who strive for greatness can reach back and gain advice/guidance from.

Wisdom from elders and those who been in your shoes is extremely advantageous. Experience of others allows a person to navigate with minimal mistakes and approach difficult situations from new perspective but with just as much as poise as their predecessors.

It’s like how T’Challa has access to all the previous Black Panthers. He don’t always go to them for every dilemma but when something exceed his scope of problem solving he can go to previous generations and can come to a swift conclusion. Whether that is to listen to them verbatim or makeshift an answer based on his solutions and theirs.

To increase success, success must increase (don’t let that go over your head). More success mean more mentors more advisors to lead the youth to more prominence in society.

IS THE GRADING SYSTEM OF LAW SCHOOL FLAWED

IS THE GRADING SYSTEM OF LAW SCHOOL FLAWED

 

A-plus-exam-e1514667819597.png

 

 When it comes to law school, there are mainly two things people really care about: securing a job and getting the best grades possible. Grades have always been scrutinized as a measure of intelligence but in law school there’s no time for scrutiny because grades are made a huge focal point of a law school student’s career, which brings me to the following dilemma: Is The Grading System of Law School Flawed? 

 One of the problems grades create in law school is some people aren’t learning to learn the material their only concern is learning to get a good grade. Sure there may be many questions about the material during a lecture but guaranteed something about the exam is always brought up. “Is this on the exam”, “how would I write this on the exam”, “how much would this be worth on the exam”, etc. 

 It is understandable why students place heavy emphasis on the final exam because its basically the only grade you get from the class. Frankly it may be too much at stake. Students have been conditioned and hard wired to always have a contingency plan that can make up lacking percentages if they ever needed the extra boost from their professor but with law school final exams, that contingency plan is tossed out the window.

 A possible solution to this problem may be weekly assignments. Weekly assignments constantly keep students on their toes and make them visit the material routinely rather than stressed out hours and hours of studying because you don’t know exactly what to study for.

 Granted their is an advantage to having one big final exam with minimal assignments in between because it allows more focus to go into your studies and not worry about some quiz or piece of homework that won’t matter much.

 However if students actually grasping the practicality of the material is to become the norm instead of just learning for exam purposes then the discussion is to be had and it won’t be an easy one.
