The Weekend

Yes, I bitch about working but I love the law school on weekends in the summer. There is no one here. I love the quiet, going into the student rec room. No one playing pool or watching tv or playing video games. Just an empty room where I can spread out my stuff and work in the silence. And honestly, the best part? The absolute best part is that there are no intense pre-lawyers discussing the import of Marbury v. Madison, contracts, torts, etc. No equally intense, but even less inviting, person discussing their GPA in the abstract or their awesome new summer job or whatever else the most arrogant asshats discuss in front of an audience. Or bemoaning their workload, etc. I love the silence.

Got a job, may lose a volunteer position, and overwelmed

I am awful. I procrastinated this last semester worse than any other semester. The problem is that I did so with my responsibilities outside of law school. I did fairly well at keeping up in classes. But my home is a shambles.

During Spring Break I had an interview with a great law firm. Or at least it seems great to me. Young, relative to many other firms I interviewed with. And not age young, necessarily. Young as in lots of room to grow, populated by energetic people excited about what they do, and the possibility to create my own niche in a good town. Not where I thought I would be but where I could do a lot.

Now I am afraid my procrastination is catching up with me. I was a volunteer for an organization and they ominously contacted me after a very long absence, on their part. I assume that I am going to be unvolunteered. I have never lost a job before, not even a volunteer position. Oh well. At this point, I will just say okay, sorry it didn't work out. Hopefully my ego will survive through it.

And I have a massive amount of work in the next 4 weeks. Ugggg.

And to top it off, we have been nursing a cat back to health and it has been a bit of an uphill battle. I am so tired of vets and trying to force medications into the cat.
