View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Holy law school batman.
Done with my first Saturday of real classes. Both interesting, exhausting, and a little nerve-wracking, although when I was called on ala Socratic method in Contracts, I did okay (at least I didn't feel nervous). Hard to believe my grades will come down to 1 single 3-hour exam at the end of each class.
I ended up studying about 18 hours between last Sunday night and Friday night. I expect that will be on the low end, although now I know better how to focus my readings/note taking. I'm a fast reader. I don't necessary retain the way I want to, but I am a fast reader.
Yes, I missed the kids. Yes, this is hard. But, I feel grateful for the opportunity and hope to keep my eye on the big picture, which is a) this is a means and b) keep my scholarship c) my kids and work and hubby have to come first. Its hard to operationalize that last one. Need to figure out how to spend meaningful time with the kids with what little time I have. I can tell Ellie is loosening her grip on me already
