1st Week of Law School. What, Like it's Hard?

Hey y'all! So now that I've completed my first week of law school, I couldn't wait to share with you all. Honestly, this isn't what I expected but I mean this in a good way. I was expecting test after test and many quizzes and tons of assignments. Well, it's not like that AT ALL! Instead, there is a lot of research, reading and note-taking!

PASS or FAIL

It seems that my grade will be determined based on one big assignment at the end of the modules. Basically, during the entire semester, I need to process a lot of information. This makes me both nervous and relieved. Nervous because...

  1. What if I don't correctly do the assignment? I could just fail the entire semester.

  2. If I fail the entire semester, that could push my graduation date.

Those are two major negatives that has been on my mind a little. But over all, I am doing the best I can and I try to read, study and communicate with my classmates every day to stay on track.

My Health

As far as my health goes, I have been roller skating, walking, and doing pilates at home. I think I will rejoin a gym soon. After all, the gym that I like has a childcare inside as well, so it's perfect! I've lost 21 pounds a few months ago and my goal is to lose 40 more lbs to get to my goal weight! I am remaining positive about it and won't rush the process. Honestly, every since I started school, I'm already down 8 pounds and that was just a week ago. I think that's because instead of eating, I'm studying. Haha!

Mental Health is just as Important as Physical Health!

My physical health isn't the only thing that I've been working on. My "Mental Health" as well. I attend therapy sessions with my counselor bi weekly. He is amazing and I feel absolutely great after each of our sessions. If I'm feeling out of control with my feelings, I'm able to bounce back immediately after letting it all out in our sessions. There's a misconception about going to therapy. A lot of people are too embarrassed to talk about their personal problems with someone. But that's exactly what everyone needs. I found that in the past when I had absolutely no one to talk to about what I was dealing with, I suffered badly in silence. So trust me when I say, therapy is one of the best decisions I could have done for myself. Moving on to balancing family and school.
