Hello to those of you who still visit this blog! As I said in my last post 2L year has been as hectic as they come! I took 6 courses in the fall and was still working at the law school library, so I was up to my eyeballs in homework- constantly behind. Also, I started playing soccer again on an intramural team and ended up getting a very severe (level 3) ankle sprain in one of our last games of the season. So I was hobbling around on crutches for a few weeks. Which basically mean that my working out diminished greatly because I wasn’t able to do much besides seated shoulder press and one-legged rows, which suck btw.
Anyways, I started the spring semester and decided to take 6 classes again. Why would I put myself through such stress? Well so that next year when I’m stressing about the bar, etc. I have like 3 classes and I’ve picked classes already and my schedule is exactly that-3 classes=win! Also this semester, I picked up a second job in a law firm and was doing paralegal/law clerk type work for the semester. So my free time this semester was 0, I’ve still been working out with the 5 am crew at my gym and doing partner workouts with my friend Zac on Saturdays. It’s been a jam packed semester that’s for sure. I also randomly decided to take a trip to Europe next December. I’ve always wanted to travel and just haven’t, so I decided I need to do it before I graduated and had crushing debt/a job. So I’m very excited about that- I have my trip almost all the way paid off which is exciting (thanks 2 jobs!).
It’s currently mid-finals. The way my classes were set up I had a lot of work in the weeks leading up to finals; a lot of trials, papers, etc. So right now I only have 2 actual finals, which means I have a lot of free time because I’ve cut my work hours down dramatically. As someone who is used to a jam-packed schedule I’m honestly unsure what to do with all of my free time. It’s mainly resulted in binge watching television, which there are worse things I’m sure.
Also my gym membership is up so for this last week that I’m at school I am taking up running again. Even though I’m in shape, I’m out of running shape so I’ve definitely been sucking wind. I’m hoping to run a half-marathon again in a few months so I have to stick with the runs! Soon I’ll be home for the summer and will hopefully find a summer internship that I can gain more legal experience in. Other than that, I’m just taking it one day at a time! I hope everything is going well for everyone else!
