The Grind

Well, it's been about 2 and a half weeks in school and I'm already looking for the emergency exit! This semester has started with a flurry, the work piles up each night and I feel like i am running on a hamster wheel. Last semester seemed so straightforward, ok let's learn this subect and move on to the next. I'm treading water frantically trying to keep my head above water. Enough visuals for ya??? Seriously though this new year is starting out a little bit more stressfully than the last. However, the correct outlook to take, yes I said correct because I believe it, is that we can only do so much and we can only try so hard before it becomes so burdensome and consumes so much time that it is impossible, literally. Looking at each year of students who graduate from first year and move on to complete their legal degrees proof becomes apparent that it IS possible to do! What a novel concept? It's been done by many before what is holding me back? I have been increasingly more comfortable in shifting my focus to other interests such as females, movies, tv, music, and the like. Becoming accustomed to doing recreational or leisurely activities really undermines the work I have done in training my body and more importantly my mind to concentrate on school work, sitting in one place and focusing on a page for hours, and trying to make sense of ideological and rational concepts mixed together to form a system of malleable rules we call the laws of the states.

Back to school

What is it about the human psyche that makes certain things desirable activities and others well, not. However, the mind can overcome those thoughts which in turn makes those activities either neutral or even desirable. That's my theory anyways and I will try to implement this into life so that I enjoy doing homework this semester. I do enjoy learning about the law, just not the hard work that comes along with it. Who's with me? New year new outlook on life!
