A Day in the Life

My apologies for the severe lack of posts lately. Life has been extremely hectic in the lead-up to exams, so the blog has fallen by the wayside.

Since nothing terribly exciting is happening in my life right now, I thought I would give you a glimpse of what finals week looks like for a law student. I warn you, however, that this is not for the faint of heart. :)

When Exam Week Hits:

(1) You have to remind yourself what day it is...because they all seem the same.

(2)  You have chocolate fudge brownie ice cream, dark chocolate M&M's, and homemade chocolate chip cookies in the house to satisfy any craving you might have...and to provide comfort when necessary. This is just one example of the type of indulgence - during exam week, it's all about survival, at any cost.

(3) You study in your pajamas all day long - because you can.

(4) On days when you need to get out the house, you spend 7.5 hours at Starbucks and go through two grande bold pick of the day coffees while running torts hypos and memorizing how to determine whether a product is defectively designed.

(5) Your mirror is covered with legal analysis.

(6) You become immensely grateful for planning ahead and stocking the freezer with single-size portions of food. Not having to cook is a huge relief!

And that, dear friends, sums up the past 48 hours or so...However, unless you fret, it really isn't that bad. You see, with finals also comes the light at the end of a tunnel - after this week is over, a new quarter will begin, and at least the first couple of weeks will be relatively enjoyable, with time to resurface and once again live life. And since this is my second set of exams, there is the boosted amount of confidence obtained from surviving the first set.

I just devoured a dark chocolate/mint chip cookie, per my Dad's recipe (SO much better than the one on the package!), and am headed off to run one last Torts hypo before my 8am exam tomorrow morning. Ta-ta for now!
