21st Mile

You know how people who run marathons say the worst is when you get to about the 21st or 22nd mile? Yeah, well that's where I am in school. So close to the finish line, but now it really is a fight to get there. It's going to take all the strength, dedication, and motivation to finish what has seemed like a marathon. Now it's a test of inner personal strength to get there. Can I do it?

I am 1 paper, and 3 exams away from being finished with my first year of law school - and holy crap, it cannot come soon enough. Less than 2 weeks to go.

I'm having major trouble with procrastination, which of all times, now is not the time to deal with that. So I'm trying to muster all the energy within me, (and drinking all the coffee I can possibly take until I get jittery and shaky and feel like I'm some sort of addict) and pushing through. Can I do it - I'm trying. But at least I know I have amazing people around me pushing, cheering, and waiting for me to cross that finish line.

And instead of a nice cold sports drink when I'm finished, I'm looking forward to a big bottle of wine!


  1. My husband is in the same state of mind that you're in. This is his last semester of his MBA program and he's struggling to find the motivation to keep studying.
    I've heard that your first year of law school is the hardest, so I say you definitely need a bottle of wine (or two!) to celebrate the end of this year :)

  2. La Petite - Ugh tell him I feel for him - although I am slightly (okay RIDICULOUSLY) jealous that he's almost finished. I have 2 more years to go:( You guys will definitely need to celebrate!


Leave me your thoughts!
