Thoughts on February

"All Februaries are without a doubt, the Worst Months in any given Year. Unpronounceable. Cold. Gray. Barren. A dumping ground for feature films. The month when you have finally used up all the tasty frozen preserves that you slaved over in a burst of super green eco-energy last summer. Now all you have left is freezer-burned hamburger meat, and you couldn't care less. The whole month is like freezer-burned hamburger meat. Put some ketchup on it and choke it down."-Samantha Bee [WSJ]

I hate February and it's almost over. Thank God.

Hello there

I think my blog may (probably) have been found through my twitter account. Whoops. I'm not entire sure if this will change anything.


To any 0L reading this: Law school is tough. It's extremely stressful. You might find yourself thinking, "Yes, I've heard this before, but I'll be different. It will be different for me." The thing is, you're probably going to be wrong. And that's okay. You're not going to the only one struggling/feeling incompetent, you're not the first one, and you're not going to be the last one.

I say this because, once those first semester grades come out... it makes law school so much tougher. Actually, not true if you're in the top 25% of the class (which I am not, but many of my friends are...), but for everyone else, it gets worse. For the past month, since grades came out, I've been in a fog, a heavy, depressing, crying-induced, stressed out, exhaustive fog. It's only now that I'm being to feel it lifting, but I still feel dumb many times that I'm in that building, many times when I'm around my friends who did extremely well. You just can't let it keep you down.

Well, I don't know what I intended with this post, but I know what I'll end it with...


And that is all I've got.
