My life has been incredibly hectic as of late. I’ve worked no less than about 50 hours a week, give or take. All the other time has been spent trying to sleep and study.
The LSAT is a mere 3 weeks away and nerves are starting to set in. I’m ready for this. I’ve put in the time, the effort, and the passion and I know I can do this. I just need to remind myself that being nervous is normal, but I can’t let it take away my focus. I know in my heart and through prayer that I’m on the right path. It has been so hard to study recently too. Probably because I’ve been doing it at least 4 times a week since February. FEBRUARY. I can’t believe it’s been almost a half a year of studying! Unreal.
I finally got my engagement ring back from David Reynolds. They did an amazing job with the prongs, and it looks beautiful. I don’t have to worry about the prongs snagging now, and I can relax with the fact that the setting is secure. The jeweler told me to watch my little diamonds because the setting is prone to loosening. She said just to bring it in and get it checked every quarter or so. I think I can manage.
Aside from everything, I’m exhausted. I don’t think I’ve had a full, well-rested night of sleep since I’ve started studying hardcore. That probably won’t happen until I know what law school I’m going to.
On the lighter side of things, Dan and I are going to Disney this weekend to celebrate his 24th birthday. I’ve dated him since he was 19. Aw. It’ll be fun. My brother is coming up to go with us and so is a few mutual friends of ours. We’re also planning a Chicago trip in November. We’re going to visit a friend of Dan’s and we may even get a chance to look at a couple of the law schools I’m applying to out there :) So excited.
My personal statement will be written right after I take the test. It should only take me a week to write and perfect it-thanks to a few journalism buddies who are going to edit it for me. This essay is the least of my worries.
