Finals update: I’m halfway through exams after finishing evidence and constitutional law I. Now I’ve got just about a week until my next, last, and toughest two exams. Hopefully I get a lot of good studying in between now and then! Hope you all are surviving finals okay!

anonymous asked:

Could you give me the jist of law school? I'm in my second year of undergrad studying environmental policy and I think I want a law degree but I know absolutely nothing about law school?? Help a girl out🙏🏼

Here - go look at this (x). It is a Supreme Court Decision regarding a super important procedural part of the law that is interesting and important to no one but lawyers.

If you cannot imagine yourself reading cases like this for three years straight, don’t go to law school. 

Here’s my Wills outline from 3L (x). If you can’t imagine yourself digesting the information enough to create this (fyi it’s 120 pages) then you don’t want to go to law school. 

If you like staring at a computer screen all day, reading useless information that will never be applicable in the practice of law, foregoing self-care and personal hygiene for weeks on end, and want to lose contact with all of your friends, then law school might be the place for you! 

December 7th. 1/100 days of productivity.

No lectures today, let’s do some revision of the first three lectures of every course. Definitely not gonna be able to do that all in one day, but the least I can do is try…

What are you doing today? (:

If you want to keep up with my 100 days of productivity challenge, head over to my instagram-account (here) where you can turn on push notifications, so that you will be notified whenever I post a picture on there (you can do this on tumblr as well, but then you’ll also get notifications when I reblog something ;))

New pastel Stabilo’s

JUST PICKED THESE BABIES UP AT THE STORE! YOU GUYS I’M SO EXCITED!!!!

They’re from the new Stabilo pastel collection. In total, they have six colours: green, pink, lila, blue, yellow and orange. I never bought the mildliners, because I thought the shipping was too pricey for me. But now I have these and I’m sooooo happy. As all the other Stabilo markers, these are just perfect, and the quality is amazing! They don’t bleed at all, and the color is subtle, but very nice. Go get ‘em!!

The blogger behind one of my favorite blogs, @academiix​, Iris, agreed to be one of the first I interviewed for my about the blogger series. I have been following her for a while now, so I was glad to get to know the person behind the blog a bit, and I hope you will be too!

Iris is a high schooler from the US. She started her blog about six months ago when she decided it was time to start sharing her study methods and unique views on education. She holds her grades to a high standard and believes that others should as well. Iris says that her views on grades are that,

… [They] don’t define your intelligence, but the only way others are going to see your intelligence is through your grades. If you’re not looking into business, your success depends heavily on what grades you get because that’s going to determine the type of college you get into, the people you work with, and the environment you are in.

Because of her strict standards for herself, she says that she hopes her blog will “motivate people to succeed in academics and set standards for themselves that show their best potential,” and jokes that she is, “basically a strict Asian parent in the form of a high schooler.”

Even though she takes her academic responsibilities very seriously, Iris isn’t all work; she is very involved in the arts in her free time. She enjoys creative writing, a type of dance called military drill, and graphic design. She says that these hobbies are very important to her because they allow her relax and stay balanced when she is overwhelmed with her academic responsibilities. Her current extracurricular obsession is debate; it has given her a number of valuable life skills in the three months that she has been involved. She says it has improved her skills in public speaking and quick thinking, and she believes that everyone should join a debate team if they have the chance. Iris is competitive in everything she does, and says that finding a talent she’s best at is at the top of her wish list currently. It is clear from speaking (typing?) with her that she is an incredibly hardworking and determined student who is destined for big things. From my experience with Iris, her attitude can be summed up with a quote she mentioned – “Success can only be achieved by motivation and hard work!”

I’m taking selfies to cheer myself up because today is my only day to study business associations and my study buddy apparently is sleeping in and it’s already past noon. I’ve dressed and come to school for no reason basically and now I’m annoyed, I could have studied at home and avoided negative emotions! Ugh, I need to allow myself to be annoyed and move past it, can’t let my emotions control me.

Making notes for my Administration Law exam on Tuesday ✨ trying to stick to my studying schedule as much as I can 😁 making A3 posters with a condensed version of my notes for revision! I stick them up on my cupboard and walls and learn them from there, cause if I sit for too long I get board and fidgety 🙈 how do you all revise?
