Today was dedicated to working on my memo. It was not a very exciting day. One nice thing about our ALTA classes is that they all end this week! It’s really great because that means one less class to worry about for finals.
When I would hear that law school was stressful I always assumed that would mean a lot of work, hard exams, and a lot more work. Although that is all true, I didn’t realize the stress law school would add to my personal life. This past week I had a professor tell my class, “On Thanksgiving, remember to take some time to spend with your families and remind them that you’re still good people and love them.” There have definitely been times that I feel my family thinks I hate them. I go days and days without seeing my family (and I live at home) and the only friends I see are the ones from law school.
Tip: A professor told me last week, “this is your time to be selfish”. If you’re going to go to law school definitely put law school as your first priority.
