The Light is Dim

Sitting at Starbucks right now trying to get the last bits of torts trapped inside my brain. It is crazy how something can seem so easy on second and then the next you are freaking out about it. I try to reassure myself by remembering that I attended class, I took notes, I’ve studied, I did well on the practice midterm. I should have this on lock. I need to calm down. Yet, the stress that comes from only having one test that determines your entire success in the course is stressful. I am not a great test taker. Even though I know the information, it is not always transferable to my performance on the test. I really want this. I want to do well. I want to succeed. My brain just feels full… or empty.

Final time is my favorite and most despised time of the year. I love being able to sit around and study information for hours and figure out new techniques of learning. (i.e. notecards, outlining, teaching, whiteboards) The stress is exhilarating and terrifying.

I know that I have a great nap to look forward to when this is over and all I can say is that I think it is well deserved.

Good luck, fellow 1Ls (and other final-takers)! We’re so close to the other side :)

      • Awesome, I’ll have to check it out. Anything else you recommend? I’m probably going to read Getting To Maybe and Law School Confidential, also I have a pretty good book on the Supreme Court I want to read. But I have 5 weeks to get into intense reading mode and I want to make the most of it. (Not being gunnerish more just putting myself back into an academic mindset)
