Sometimes I wonder if I'm wrongly going about this whole law school thing. I am beginning to lose my focus in the reading. I am beginning to not review concepts after class. I often feel like my classmates have a better handle on the subject matter than I do. I no longer type out my briefs but instead do some very thorough book briefing. I try to read supplements for each of my classes, but I can't help but think I'm not doing enough. And I don't even have the time to add anything in because it has been taking me longer to get through the reading when I have such crappy focus skills.

I want to escape. I want a huge pile of leaves to jump into. I want an armchair, a pot of tea, a good book and a scenic view to look up at in between well-written sentences. I want a break.

But I cannot have one. I have a full plate and then some.

Did I mention that another memo in the making only makes things worse? Did I mention I have company coming this weekend? Did I mention that I didn't invite them? Did I mention I have a networking event with the judicial community that I also have to put my game face on for and go to?

Buckling down is not fun. Tell me it gets better...

    it gets better...but only because you get comfortable with all of the things you think you are doing wrong. The key to getting through this is finding your own natural style and then letting it work for you.

    You second guess yourself from the start and I'm sorry to tell you that it doesn't go away...

    good luck on exams, it's exciting and fretful but it's also pretty rewarding to know you won't have to do it again (at least for those subjects)
