So I've never had a blog before, but I figure there is always a first time for everything. And I'm bored right now so here we go...
I'm 20 years old, very naive about the world, thinks everyone is a nice person deep down, hate thinking the worst about people, and don't believe that anyone would stab me in the back to get ahead. I believe in karma, that as long as I try my best and try to do good for everyone that one day I will get that back in return. I know this will all change as soon as I enter law school, but honestly I hope it doesn't. I will find that people will use me to get ahead in classes or take advantage of my kindness to make me look bad, but deep down I hope I never have to experience that. A born and raised California girl, I never really knew what snow was until I moved to the East Coast. Snow was just something we visited a few times a year when we went up to Tahoe, but now I can say that I officially hate it. I'm a girly girl, I like getting my nails done, my hair highlighted. I like wearing makeup and looking pretty. As my girl Coco Chanel said:
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
Although I like doing all those girly things that doesn't make me superficial, and if it does so what!!! I'm a smart girl and I don't think that just because I enjoy things that don't involve saving whales or hiking up mountains, makes me any less intelligent. I've worked hard for what I have and I'm proud of it and proud of where I am at in my life.
I thought it might be cool to look back and see all the stress that I put on myself throughout this entire Law School process. Currently I'm just studying for the June LSATs, and I've finally made my strict study schedule of how each day will be about a certain part of the test. As weird as it may sound to some, doing this has actually made me excited to study.
I love doing the Logic Games, and I always want to be doing more when I finish the ones for my section. I tried to go to Barnes and Nobles to see if they had books that just had questions that had been on previous tests, but that was completely useless. The only books they have are Kaplan and Princeton, which I don't want to buy cuz their method is so completely different than my LG Bible, that I don't want to confuse myself.
LR and RC are definitely going to be my hard sections, especially RC. At least with the LR I am starting to get it, and I'm starting to really understand what I'm supposed to be looking for. But with RC, I lack the confidence. I've never been good at RC, it was my weak section in the SATs and any other standardized test that we've had to take. I know this makes me sound like I'm not right for law school, I mean if I can't understand a certain passage, how can I possibly understand complex arguments. But my real trouble is reading the passage and answering the questions. I don't know if it's the actual questions or if it's the concentration required during the reading of the passage.
I guess this is a long enough post for my first one, so I'll stop and prolly continue later when I discover something new.
