Law School Episode II: Attack of the Law

6 comments
I admit: I've seen the new Star Wars movie twice. No shame.

But yeah, I just realized I'll have 6 semesters of law school, just like the first 6 episodes of Star Wars. I missed semester 1, but I guess it would be something like: Law School Episode I: The Legal Menace.

Spring semester starts Monday. I have plans to read and post more this semester than last, but I'm trying to stay flexible. Second semester is when a ton of volunteer projects open up to 1Ls, and I want to take advantage of that. And not just because my scholarship requires a certain number of volunteer hours. ;) It does, but I'm excited to get back to volunteering. I had to cut my library tutor time when school started and I miss it.

Also, after a spectacularly warm Christmas, winter is here.

Pray for the rush hour commutes. People drive crazily enough in the rain. I'm not looking forward to seeing how they drive in snow. :P

Grades are only just starting to come out. I have one so far and, well...

O.O Haha, no, it's not that bad, but...let's just say I'd like better and it's inspiring me to change up my approach and work harder this semester. ;)

On the book front, I've only read one so far this year, but it was an excellent start. I hope to have a quick review up this weekend before the craziness starts. Although, it's kind of started already. I have homework for every class due Monday. Not even winter break is sacred in law school. :(

I'm feeling a little swamped right now. I have a ton of stuff going through my head, and it's not sorting out as quickly as I'd like, but a little faith goes a long way, right? And a good book is still the perfect escape (although Netflix is a close second).

Wishing you all happy reading in this new year!

    1. Thanks, Alyssa! I just got Winter from the library last night, so I'm trying to squeeze that in before homework swamps the weekend. :)

    1. Haha, thanks Missie! I can't say I'm excited about the homework, but it must be done. :P -30?! That's just crazy. I recommend staying inside with hot tea and books. :)
