Decade in Review 2009-2019: Being Gabriela

By: Gabriela Yareliz I thought it would be fun to briefly take a short walk through this past decade to highlight some memories that helped make me, me. I started this blog at the Marston Science Library at the University of Florida. I was probably wearing corduroy pants and a shirt someone passed down to…

“Adulting”

By: Gabriela Yareliz “Adulting,” that is what Feliz calls the act and state if being an adult. That awkward world where we pay our bills, we monitor our accounts and only get substantial vacations for maternity leave. It’s only awkward to us because it’s foreign to us. It’s weird when suddenly you aren’t living off…

Sunday Girl: August 9, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz The neighbors have a tent in their backyard. I hope they aren’t those people who put the tent on Airbnb and charge people $200 a night for “urban camping.” (This does exist. I do not lie). Because I just moved in to my place, I am doing my own urban camping of…

How the Sequel Began: Part I

By: Gabriela Yareliz I was lost. And there was no worse time to be lost. I was clutching my Ziploc bag filled with pencils and a pencil sharpener. I had no phone and no watch. I had no phone or watch because I was on my way to take an exam that banned phones or…

Monday Inspiration: June 22, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw the bar exam countdown calendar. Thirty-something days left. I shuddered. This is insane; the way time has run away, kidnapping our summer. For those still in law school doing internships, their internships are halfway done. It’s that time in the summer when exhaustion settles into numbness, and even Shakespeare in…

This Month’s Picks: May 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz May. It’s over. I can’t believe it. Law school. It’s over. I can’t believe it. This month was so hardcore. So many emotions. It’s an end. It’s a beginning. This month, I lost a friend and mentor to cancer. That was very tough and unexpected. Some unexpected things were bad, other unexpected things…

Tuesday Badinage: May 12, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s exam season in law school. The final days countdown. Oh, law school. You can meet noble people, strange people, catty people, self-centered people (the world in one building, minus the racial diversity)– and it is often said that all attorneys have some kind of ego complex. Not sure if that is accurate. Maybe it…

Sick-Day Sabbath #2

By: Gabriela Yareliz I have sneezed so much, I am afraid I am going to sprain my neck or something. Unfortunately, I am sick, and fortunately, trapped indoors. Today, I was sneezing at a symposium (the photo above is from today–the one moment I was not sneezing). The symposium talked a lot about John Milton’s…

What we were taught today

…in criminal procedure, essentially. Essentially, if the law doesn’t back you or exist, make the law. Thanks professor….?

Con law: Love the melody

The title of the album is con law. What is not to love? A soundtrack for a sunny law school day like today. -Gabriela Yareliz
