Back in the Game

It’s been almost a year now, and so much has happened! Here’s a brief update on what you missed:

  • I went to Phoenix, Arizona to take part in the inaugural Alliance Defending Freedom Collegiate Academy
  • I got accepted to LSU Law
  • I moved to Baton Rouge 
  • I got to meet Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
  • I got to see some amazing LSU football games 🙂
  • I’m a member of the Student Bar Association
  • I survived my first semester of law school!

It’s been a crazy year, and I know the next few will be just as crazy. But I missed my blog, and I think it is time to resurrect it! Here is an idea of what you can expect coming up soon:

  • I’m taking Constitutional Law, so definitely some posts about that.
  • My search for an internship this summer!
  • I’m in the process of starting a pro-life group at the law school, but I’m also involved with the undergrad group on campus!
  • Picking my classes for next semester!
  • Writing my first legal brief
  • We get to do graded Oral Arguments for Legal Research and Writing, and since it’s the closest I’ve got to debate, I’m really excited about it!
  • Supreme Court cases as they move through, such as: HHS Mandate, Prop 8, Affirmative Action, and others.

In case all that didn’t clue you in, I want to bring the focus down to a more personal level. I’ll still do my best to write my heavily researched, heavily political posts, but with limited time on my hands I need a change in tone if I’m going to keep this up!

Thanks for sticking with me over the years, I’ll try my best not to disappoint with my new posts!

Wedding Bells!

So my fiancee finally called our church about getting married, setting the ball rolling for our wedding in 8 months! I am getting really excited! To me marriage is a lifelong commitment, and to illustrate that, my fiancee and I have decided to get a covenant marriage.

The covenant marriage has been around in Louisiana since 1997, and basically what it does, is eliminate the no-fault divorce. It re enforces the ides that marriage is supposed to be forever, regardless of how hard it may get down the road. The only way a couple in a covenant marriage can get a divorce is if one of them committs adultery, is abusive, or completely abandons the other for a period of more than one year. it also legally binds the couple into receiving marriage counseling both before the wedding, and afterwards in the event of marital problems.

Covenant marriage is everything that marriage was intended to be originally- a lifelong promise to love, honor, and cherish one another in good times and bad. I am looking forward to making that promise this summer in front of my family, friends, and most importantly God.
