My Winter Break

My exams this past semester were a little extra challenging because they were not spaced out in an advantageous way. Essentially, I had a lot of time to prepare for my first exam but very little time to prepare for my second two. It made the process a little more stressful than past semesters, but things turned out fine. As a 3L, exams are a bit more of a routine than the shock to the system they are when first starting law school.

Winter break was fun and restful at times, but there was also a lot of work to be done. Spending Christmas with my daughter at 3 years old was a real treat--and a real responsibility for me and my wife. She loves the holiday season and we made sure that it was very special for her. Besides the holidays off, I spent a lot of time working at my current firm as a law clerk. I really appreciate my experiences and opportunities there so I made an effort to work more hours during the break than I had during the semester.

As a family man, the holidays can be a lot of work and having my daughter’s preschool closed down made for a lot of quality family time. But the days roll on and the holidays are now firmly in the rear-view mirror. Now, I just have one short semester to go, so I hope to make it count!
