Busy. Busy. Busy.

I must say that this is the busiest quarter of my law school career!!! There has been so much going on these past few weeks.  On a weekly basis I juggle: job searching, co-op interviewing, class readings, outlining, and extra curricular activities.  Although I am very busy, I can say that I thoroughly enjoy every second of it.

I spend most of my days immersed in reading and case briefing for class. I am currently taking a corporations class which I find interesting because the corporate world is very foreign to me.  Right now I am working on my corporations outline because I have a midterm this Thursday.  My outline thus far is 18 pages and I am about three-fourths through the material.  I have been working on this outline since last week Thursday and I hope to finish it by tomorrow night.

Switching subjects a bit – For co-op this winter I applied to quite a few firms.  My first three co-ops were human rights (http://asia-in-india.blogspot.com/ ) and government based. Thus,  since I have not experienced corporate firm life yet, I thought it would be a good idea to try it out before I graduated.  I mainly applied to firms in New York City, but I also applied to one in Hawaii.  I will keep you posted on my decision of which co-op I choose.

Today, BLSA teamed up with the Women’s Law Caucus and attended the Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk.   BLSA walks every year in honor of our faculty advisor, Professor Susan Maze-Rothstein, who is a breast cancer survivor.  I really enjoyed walking with my fellow classmates for this great cause.

Although law school can be very challenging and time consuming, it is worthwhile to have a work/life balance.  I exercised this work/life balance and traveled to New York to visit my boyfriend last weekend.   I enjoyed hanging out in Manhattan in the fresh fall air. The weekend was even more exciting because while in New York I had the opportunity to meet up with my best friend for dinner!

Finally, I cannot believe that I am half way through this quarter!!!! I look forward to Thanksgiving Break and further my winter co-op!
