When you awaken from a 30-minute-somehow-turned-210 minute nap. What is life? But seriously. I’ve been one with my chair and so tired these last two weeks that stationary objects have started to look more like they’re moving in the last few days. I initially thought it was a sign that I’m losing it, but it seems quite common with students being exhausted through studying. So I’m not going to give myself any weird diagnosis just as yet😉….
This semester was spent somewhere between feeling horribly stressed and being painfully exhausted. The highs and lows have pushed me to adapt, and some of those highs were the result of my growth. Most importantly I learned how easy it was to get consumed by my studies, yet how important it was to maintain a life outside of Law. I am definitely going to make a conscious effort to look after myself.(hence the mini-break from social-media)
So this weekend I’m going to spend time meandering around bookshops.😉 Honest confession: *I have not read a fiction book in a while* This coming from a girl who literally grew up with her nose buried in books and her mind in far away magical, space limitations and fictional lands, this really saddens me😑( Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, The chronicles of Narnia, to name a few) I have never been one to leaf through a New York Times Bestseller, but I’ve done my fair share of reading….

To Preface: YOU know YOURSELF best, right?
Sometimes we define ourselves by our resume and awards, but what about the moments in between. These accomplishments are meaningless without staying true and finding joy in our day-to-day. How apt is this quote: ‘Life is meant to be fun, lighten up and release the need to get it right first time. Perfection is subjective and trophies collect dust. Laugh at yourself and keep moving. It will come together’~ Kathleen O Malley
As I look back at this semester with a smile, I leave behind every gratifying moments that was followed by demoralizing moments. Every burst of motivation that was followed by a stint of hopelessness. I’m excited to move onto the next semester. Thank you, Lord. Definately going to balance it with some home comfort (Harry Potter marathons and movie nights.)😉
