Spring break? Gone.

Posted by newlawmom on March 13, 2009

The week went by so fast.  The summer job search must officially end now. OK. Almost. I never did get my packet out to the AG’s office and I really should aim to have that in the mail for Monday. Otherwise, it is a matter of waiting for phone calls and interviews. And prayer, of course. Can’t forget that. If I am meant to have a summer job, I will have one.  That leaves….school work. Outlines, reading, and preparation. I will study tonight and all day and night Sunday to get ready for class on Monday. I did less school work than I should have. But hey – I got lawyer hair. So what is there to complain about? I wish I had another week off. I am nervous and antsy and stressed. The work load during the spring semester far exceeds the fall and I have not done very well staying ahead of it. Let’s hope this next few weeks go a little bit better. I hope my readers have a great weekend! I will see you again on Monday.

1L summer work

Posted by newlawmom on March 9, 2009

This week I am on a job hunt. I’ve actually been on a job hunt for some time now, but this week I’m going to make it happen. As of this minute, I have secured two interviews for myself.  There is more to be done. Theoretically, I am on spring break. That is not correct. Actually, I have been given a week to find a job, prepare my outlines, and get ahead in my reading. If I thought last semester had a competitive edge to it, spring exams are going to take the cake. I must be prepared, because I have three children who are depending on me to provide for them. In addition, I have basically dropped everything to attend law school for three years midway through my life. That is not the type of thing that is done just for kicks. So…I’m off to work. I hope my readers have  a very fine and productive day. See you tomorrow.
