Long Overdue

I wish I could say I made a resolution to post more frequently, but since I typically fail at my resolutions, I decided to look ahead and not make such a resolution. But I'll try to be better, I promise!

I did make a resolution to work out. Not to work out more, or weekly, or anything like that, to just workout. As long as I get to the gym once this year, that resolution will be a success. I like to aim low...

Speaking of which, grades are out at my law school. I'm happy I survived (as in I'm in 'good standing' academically speaking) but I'm around the middle of the pack, maybe even a bit on the low side and that I'm not too happy with. Though I may just be more frustrated with the fact that my friend kicked my ass. And her new year's resolution is to drink more this year... which I'm going to help her with, since I'm such a good friend. Granted, one class, Contracts, tore me down. On the upside, I know it destroyed a lot of people's grades (because 3L's and 2L's have told me this class was their lowest grade in law school). The downside is I have the same professor next semester...This does not bode well for me.

So, I guess my resolutions are, to sum them up: workout, study more/harder/better, and drink more. That last one kind of cancels the other two out... but we'll see. It can and will be done!

That's my "work out" resolution too - just DO it, no real goals on how much because then I know I won't get to it.
I know how you feel, that's about where my grades were last year. I was really worried, because even though I did better in the spring, my fall Civ Pro grade is still pretty sad. What would interviewers say?? Well, every single one who has been an alum of my school has said, "oh, did you have Prof. V? I barely survived that class..." and just glazed right over it. So maybe the reputation will work in your favor :)

Good luck with your second semester! I know that people put so much emphasis on being law review, top 3% and all that jazz, but coming back in good standing really is an achievement! You survived one of the worst academic experiences out there. It TRULY only gets so much better from here on out!

Congrats on getting through exams - around the middle sounds perfectly awesome to me.

And welcome back to blogging :)

I decided to give up coffee since it makes me anxious, even though I love it so. Strangely, I also concentrate better without it. Who knows why...
