Work-Life Balance.

I cannot believe that I have exams in less than 2 weeks! Time flies when you are having fun. . . except that studying for exams is not that fun. . . neither is studying for class . . . or studying period. :/  I try to balance my work and my life by creating weekly to-do lists.  At the beginning of this past week I created a to-do list of 34 items that I wanted to get accomplished in regards to school and personal life.  As of now, I have marked-out/accomplished 21 items on said list.  Which is great.  I hope by Sunday I can finish the other 13 items on the list.  *Fingers Crossed*

In other unrelated news – my birthday was a couple of weeks ago!!! I cannot believe that I am 26 years old! [Side Note:  The saying goes, ‘a woman should never tell her age,’ but I do not mind. :)]  I celebrated my birthday jointly with a good friend of mine from law school: we had two birthday celebrations.  The first event was a birthday party at my house and then at a lounge in Boston.  It was a lot of fun. Great friends… Great music… Good times.  The second part of our week long celebration consisted of an intimate dinner with some of our close friends.  Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my birthday and I cannot wait until my birthday next year!

As for co-op –  I have decided to do my winter co-op in Hawaii at a general practice firm because I want to gain experience working at a firm (and skipping a Boston winter sounds amazing).  I am extremely excited about my winter co-op.  ALOHA!

Lastly, today was a hard day for me because it marks the anniversary of my best friend’s murder.  She was an amazing person and I miss her a lot on a daily basis.  Needless to say, it was very hard to concentrate in class today. I constantly pray for her family and other close friends because I know how hard it is to cope with everyday life knowing that she is gone. – In law school, personal things happen in everyone’s life, the hard part is trying to balance personal experiences with the time constraints of school.  I do not think I have mastered that balance, but I do think that it is important for me to try and master a balance in order to fulfill my goals of graduating from law school and further becoming a lawyer. I can do it. 🙂
