Life update: Fall grades, spring semester, and summer jobs

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?

xoxo,

P.S. If anyone wants to help out a broke law student and buy me a coffee, I would appreciate it!

Blogging/life update: I’m halfway done with moving!

Hello everyone!

As you can see, I haven’t posted anything since the end of June. That’s because I finished part 1 of my move. Part 1 consisted of moving the big items like furniture and half of my books. Part 2 will be the rest of my stuff like clothes, makeup, (and more books!). The move is going well but the toughest part by far has been deciding what books to bring with me. I unfortunately don’t have the space to bring all my books, so I’m only bringing about half with me. The rest will be staying here at my parents’ house. It is so tough deciding what books I want to take because I have no idea what books I might want to reference later on. The struggle is very real.

The mess that is my bookshelf back at home. Currently deciding which books to pack.

As you probably can guess this will be a relatively quiet month here on my blog. I should have a few reviews up this month but not as much as I typically would post. I literally didn’t have time to read at all last week. I am currently reading Sweet Black Waves Kristina Perez (which I  started reading before I moved) and Anna Undreaming by Thomas Welsh. I’m hoping to finish both these books and start two more books by the end of this week.

That’s it for now! I will keep you guys updated on my moving progress. And if you would like to help out a soon-to-be law school student, please consider buying me a coffee via this link.
