Mid-semester break, a magical week of no classes. A time when you can catch up on missed lectures, sleep in, and finish off the assignments that are due when classes resume. It seems so far away. There’s plenty of time to plan and get on top of things. No need to start planning just yet, I can do all that next week… right?
When I would tell people I was studying law, they would often comment on how time-consuming and workload could be. Then, when I added in the fact that I was not only studying full time but also working full time, they would look at me as if I was some kind of lunatic. Perhaps I was, but I think all law students are in our own special way.
