Okay, here I am, second term and I realized that I have been MIA since, well, forever! I survived first term with very few bumps. I have been forming great friendships, falling asleep while reading Civ Pro, wondering (still) if I should quit working, juggling family with work and school, trying to figure out if dating will ever fit into the fix, and I obtained an executive position on a Womens group on campus. Basically, so far so good!
My biggest issue has been time. I obtained the advice of our academic guru on campus and it has been working well this term. I switch subjects every hour, study for between 4-5 hours a day. That hour of study consists of 20 minutes reading and briefing cases (at least 2 cases--so 10 min. per case); 20 minutes working with the material, multiple choice questions, writing; and 15 minutes outlining.
I did not try this the first term and I ended up slightly behind every week and didn't study as effectively as I could have (it showed in my exam.) I am much more comfortable this term, everything is working out great!
That being said, I really need to get back to work--Torts is calling--my five minute break is long been over!
