Being Sick is NOT an Option
ORIGINALLY POSTED 4/20/11–Beginning last weekend I was so miserable with allergies it felt as if I wore a fishbowl full of water over my head like a helmet. Monday morning I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t asphyxiate in my sleep; I’d had grave doubts about seeing the sunrise when I fell asleep on Sunday. Even though I still felt like death, the week was full of deadlines, so there was no rest for the weary.
I finished my Major Motion Assignment on Sunday as planned and I’m happy with the final product. Since I was done writing two days before the deadline I actually had time for editing and proofreading. Prof. Pierce will love that!
It was also my turn to brief and discuss cases in my State and Local Government class. I chose a topic with which I am very familiar: Open Records. We started to discuss the specifics of the statute in class, but we’ll continue on it this week. It felt so good to be able to talk with authority about something, for a change. Wow, I’ve so missed that. It’s a tricky little niche of the law and when I worked at the University I just loved unraveling the puzzles and side-stepping all the traps meant to make the statute so user-friendly.
I’ve decided to drop the 4 hours of summer courses I planned to take. I didn’t have enough hours to qualify for financial aid, so I was worrying about paying the bill. After assessing my finances, I figured that I could take those four hours in the spring and still have a lighter last semester. What’s the rush anyway, I love law school!
This weekend was pretty laid back. I took Friday off from studying to sleep. I needed it and with finals looming, I have to be back to 100%. I also watched a movie and my family was like, “What are you doing? Why are you watching a movie?” Guess I’ve got them conditioned to know something’s up when my face isn’t in a book. That’s all for now!
