Beginning to feel the weight.

Finals are approaching, and I’m beginning to feel the weight of the pressure of 4 tests worth 100% of my grade… Blech.

Good news is three weeks from today I’ll be 24 hours into summer break.

Bad news is three weeks from today I’ll be 24 hours into summer break.

I am not near ready for my exams. A lot of information has to be crammed into my brain before the 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 11th.

I’m kind of feeling like this cat:

Yep. I’m a little freaked out.

Fortunately, it has been a super productive weekend and I even managed to spend a little time outside at the Law School’s annual Softball Social. When I came home my roommate said, “Man your arms are tan!!! Especially compared to your legs.” Thanks?

Here’s what I brought to the potluck:

Dirt Pudding! Ever law student needs a little bit of childhood every once and a while. It’s easy-peasy – just make pudding, crush some oreos, and bury some (gummy) worms.

Now I think I’m going to go make some Fluffy Banana Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes.

If this is my last post until after finals – do not despair. I’m come back after I return from my hole studying my brains full of information – pray for my survival.

The life of a law student on a Friday night.

It’s 10:00 on a Friday night. What am I about to do, you ask? Well, let me give you a quick glimpse into the life of a law student….

I’m getting ready to read for Monday. To make my life a little more exciting, I’m giving myself the option of researching for our first big assignment of the semester, but one or the other is getting done tonight.

I’ll be the first to admit, school regularly dominates my weekends. Knowing our grades are riding on one exam at the end of the semester puts a little fire in my pants to do my work now. It may not be glamorous, but it is well worth it.

Now, considering I DO like to sleep, and have to work in the morning, I better get cracking.

Good night!

PS – Tomorrow I’m going to post about the Dominican Republic. Get excited. Here’s a photo to help.
