Reflections after Week 3

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Sep 5, 2009 in Weekend Roundup | Subscribe

I was debating between one of these entries or answering questions from another set of emails.  The latter would require more effort… so I decided against it :D

  1. Law school is still not difficult per se.  It’s still, fundamentally, school.  There’s a ton of reading on a daily basis that might require more time than it typically takes you to read something like Where the Wild Things Are.  But as long as you can keep up with the reading and write notes to yourself to remember the key take-home points, you’ll be fine.  I think.


  2. Despite #1, I’m incredibly behind already.  I missed 3 separate classes this week, with one absence apiece in CivPro, Torts and Contracts. I’ll also likely end up missing classes on Thursday and Friday for my monthly meeting of the UNC Board of Governors.  My apartment is a mess, I need to do dishes, haven’t balanced my checkbook in weeks (bad idea), and still haven’t finished building the trio of shelves I bought back on Monday.  Key point:  don’t let yourself fall behind!  Once you start falling back, it sucks burning a 3-day weekend to catch up.


  3. I still like the experience though, and truly enjoy my classmates — though I’m not entirely sure they feel the same :)  It’s a good mix of people though and the diversity of opinions (and the fact they’re competent) is refreshing.


  4. And if I were smart I’d find a study group.


  5. Stepping away from law, I baked up some cornbread the other night for the first time in years.  I need to tweak my recipe so it’s a bit sweeter.


  6. MythBusters marathons on the Discovery Channel are a lifesaver when you’re stuck at the apartment by yourself and there are no Law & Order reruns anywhere on TV :)


  7. I’m also slowly improving at the whole “getting in shape” thing. Went on a quasi-jog with one of my classmates (who makes me feel like a total underachiever, both physically and academically) and have kept up with my push-ups and crunches.  Though I still contend it could be argued that ’round’ constitutes a shape.


That’s all I’ve got for this week :)  Have a great night everybody! :D

Round is a perfectly fine shape.

And yes, getting behind is a ‘ish.
