We all know Elle Woods! The girl who owned law school while wearing killer boots and snagging the guy. Elle, along with cast of shows like How To Get Away With Murder and , make law school seem like one drama filled part. IT’S NOT!
Law school is hard work, its long hours, ridiculous amount of reading and excruciating pressure. Some days you will feel on top of the world, ready to fight against an unfair justice system, outsmart international crime syndicates and take a win for the underdog! Other days will be the complete opposite. You won’t want to get out of bed, you will feel inferior to your classmates and the world will seem like a terrible, impossible place. This is normal I promise! Ups and downs are part of Uni and they are particularly part of law school.
When the going gets tough I have found the best thing to do is take a break. Stop reading whatevers in front of you and walk away. Go outside and feel sun on your skin. Call a friend and have a chat about last nights episode of the Bachlorette. Even just go into the kitchen and talk to your mum, dad, sibling or housemate. Whatever it is, no matter how small a thing, enjoy it and forget about being stressed for a minute! At times law school may seem like the be all and end all, but i PROMISE you its not! So cut yourself a break and chill out because I bet your doing just fine!
