End of the semester…
All of law school.
^ This is what I have to look forward to the next 3 years? Awesome sauce.
So here’s what you have to look forward to. You will both love what you are doing and hate how much of it you have to do. You will always think there is too much work and yet procrastinate on ever doing it. You will think what you are doing is amazing, but hate your friends who got to leave undergrad and have a life. The most important thing you can do in law school is learn to take care of yourself. Learn to eat healthy despite thinking you have better things to do besides cook. Learn to go to the gym despite always having something else you should be reading. Learn to go out with your friends sometimes, despite the fact that you all have work you could be doing.
The reality is this career will kick the shit out of all of us if we don’t learn these things now. You’ll notice a lot of lawblrs will gripe about pretty much anything and everything. But, at the end of the day, it’s just because it’s what gets us through. Knowing other people feel the same stress you do. Knowing other people find the same things frustrating. I have a lot of friends (who don’t use tumblr) who find lawblr blogs
the best thing in the worldamazing, because it reminds them other people feel the same way they do.
So, yeah, it’s a lot of work. But what the hell else would you rather be doing?
^^This! Law school is the BEST thing I’ve ever done in my life. Yeah, it sucks at times, but something worth having is something worth struggling for.
Bringing this back. Because I know people are suffering. But it’s worth it.
