Yes! I am in the middle of my second week. Law school is…well, it is not as bad as I thought it was going to be. There is a caveat there however. It reminds me a little bit of high school. In high school, I was a huge nerd and would just stay at the school until I was done with most of my work. This was because I did not want to carry my books home and because the computer and printer I had at home sucked. At the school I would socialize but at the same time I would get my work done.
Law school. A little bit like that. The books are HUGE AND I MEAN HUGE. You get a locker to put them in and the library is open very late. I tend to just want to stay there and do work because my incentive is to get home and well, do more work.
I get frustrated by all the people with all the miniscule questions and I am often confused during class lectures. The professors do really call on you at random and expect you to be ready to answer some picky question about the reading. They almost always have an answer in mind and if you are wrong they will tell you and the rest of the class so.
There is a small aspect of humiliation in it. I try not to let it get to me however because I think that the end result will be worth it.
I just feel like maybe I came here too quickly and should have partied it up a little bit more before but oh well what is done is done.
I am going to try to enjoy this experience as much as possible. I am going to take in every humiliating moment and every back breaking walk home and I am going to smile because according to some I am not even supposed to be here.
but i am.
