Hi everyone! So it’s been a while since my last life update and my life has been pretty crazy to say the least.
Last Friday, we got back our fall grades and I am fairly happy with mine. They’re not super amazing, but given my circumstances (basically: my grandfather’s funeral was literally 2 days before my finals and I was a total mess because of it and law school grades are pretty much all based on your final exam), I think I did pretty well. It’s relief finally having them after waiting for so long.
I am entering week 3 of spring semester and so far it has been good. This is mainly because the undergrads don’t start school yet so campus is so quiet and parking is super easy to find. I’m also loving the fact that my writing class is now in the afternoons on Tuesdays (instead of in the mornings like last semester), which means that I get to sleep in!
Lastly, I’m currently applying to summer jobs. It is customary for law students to work during the summer to gain practical law experience. When I first started law school, I originally wanted to find a summer job in down here in SoCal, but lately, given my turbulent finals experience, I want to go back to the Bay Area for work. So far I have applied to 7 jobs, all of which are companies, not law firms. I really like the idea of working in-house so I am hoping to get an internship at a company.
So that has been my life in a nutshell. How have you been?
P.S. If anyone wants to help out a broke law student and buy me a coffee, I would appreciate it!
