Life is Good (Again)

DONE with my first semester of law school!!!
And it didn't kill me. Somehow, I managed to make it through 1L fall with only minor psychological damage.

I didn't harm any of my frenemy classmates, my son still thinks I'm cool (enough), and my husband hasn't filed for divorce yet - all in all a success no matter what my grades turn out to be.

I'm pretty sure my friends and family will find me less likeable these days, but that's to be expected, right? I mean, who actually likes lawyers/law students? Not me...

Reasons Why My Son is the Cutest

1. He says "awfuls" instead of "waffles".

2. He says "cheese" instead of "geez". Example: "Cheese mom, stop kissing me!"

3. He can get a good hit if you throw him a baseball.

4. He comes home speaking Spanglish after visiting my parents.

5. He is always so concerned about people/animals.

6. He uses the word "though" correctly.

7. He's a better negotiater than Mr.

8. He has Mr.'s pretty blue eyes.

9. He's better at math than I am.

10. He's very competitive. And when you play a game with him, he'll tell you "I'm going to win and you're going to be LOST!"

Exam Update

The semester is almost over. I only have one exam left and then I am FREE for Winter Break. Words cannot express how excited I am to be able to watch tv, drink until I forget about law school, and not read ANYTHING until school starts back up.

Surprisingly, exams have not killed me (yet). I've been avoiding the law school library and my classmates like the plague. I think this has helped a lot actually. They all look so panicked and I just don't want to do that to myself. I've been busting my ass this entire semester so that I wouldn't have to kill myself now trying to catch up or outline - that's what I keep reminding myself when I start to get anxious. So I've been studying at home and making sure I get good sleep, take my vitamins, don't obsess over exams too much.

So far they have all gone really well. Ofcourse everyone I've talked to thinks they did okay though, so we'll see what happens once we get our grades back. I'll keep my fingers crossed until then.

For now, I have ONE MORE exam standing between me and the holidays -better get back to studying.
