Law school is everything I hoped it would be and I love it but... it's a lot of work. WHO KNEW???

 

lm6.gif?w=500&h=281

 

Anyhow - going to keep this challenge short, sweet, and to the point because I still have a legal memo to write and contracts to read tonight. Maybe more flare will go into it later, but... who knows. 

 

Quick update on what I've been doing: Nothing. No working out, no watching my eating, nada. All studying, sleeping, and trying to settle back in to the student life.

 

Goals:

1) Walk the doggo every day. (Sidenote - I live with my pupper again!)

2) Get 3 workouts in a week. Doesn't matter how long/what they are/what they achieve. Just. Do. It.

3) Drink all the water.

4) Plan meals out and eat vegetables maybe? Somehow I went from eating a ton of veggies everyday to not knowing when my last one was (kidding - I ate a whole stuffed pepper yesterday :)).

 

That's it. Short, sweet, simple, accomplishable.

I didn't even notice that you'd posted the actual challenge plan :) I guess I need to do mine.

 

I think your plan is 100% on point for your first semester! Weeks from now you'll be more settled into a routine with studying etc and can get more ambitious and detailed. For now getting a workout of some kind is solid! (And eating your vegetables.)

 

Living with the doggo has got to be making life good.

 

Super proud of you, Ms Pond. Go get 'em.

DAY 1:

 

The walking the dog goal has been going great during week 0. She's been very helpful in that she has literally started yelling at me if it gets too late and we haven't gone on a walk yet. 

 

I've signed up for a free month of Daily Burn to try it out. I have a bunch of gyms around me, but none are super easy access and because my schedule is so changeable depending on the amount of homework I have, I'm going to try to do at home workouts for a bit. I'm hoping to do my first one tomorrow.

 

Water is going a lot better. Once I restarted consciously drinking more, I remembered how much better I feel. 

 

Vegetables: Spinach and onions in my homemade spanikopita tonight.

It's like she knows you need that walk just as much as she does. :)

I've let both of us down the last two days in a row but that changes tomorrow! (It might have to be a super quick one but it'll happen!)

It'll start going faster once you get more used to it.  First year, especially first semester, is all about just figuring out what law school is about and surviving.  Hang in there!

 

That sounds about right. It's not that the work is difficult - it's just the sheer amount of it! At least I like most of it (the bluebook citations I could do without though).

*cough* maybe a citation manager application *cough*

 

Do they work with Bluebook citations? They are so specific to the legal field. Also - they are exercises on LexisNexis so a citation manager wouldn't matter anyway.

They do. The Bluebook style for the one I use was written by a lawyer. Okay, admittedly won't help with the LN exercises, but will be useful later. 

 

I mean, if only you had a friend who was an internationally recognized expert on one of the best citation manager applications who could give you a one-on-one online lesson some time. That'd be great. OH WELL

 

(that is a standing offer btw)

Yeah, man, I mean ... I think you owe yourself this no matter how busy you are, if you can manage it. :)

Bluebook was the bane of my existence and is one of those things that exist solely in academia.  After graduating I literally have never once had to look up a citation form.  Maybe if I suddenly found a need to cite to a swiss trade agreement from the 90s...OH WAIT THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.  And if it did Westlaw has a "copy with reference" feature that would do the work for me.

No workout happened today because I had a lot more work than expected and it's taking longer than I hoped. :(
