Tired and Hired

I took my last of five final exams last night, and am now officially done with my second year of law school.  Next year, I am going to do everything in my power to make sure I don't have five finals in one semester ever again. It was most unpleasant. I think four is the max you feel like you can handle over a two week period. The most challenging thing was that my last two finals were on consecutive days. Normally, exams are well-spaced with at least a day but often two or even three between each exam, so you have plenty of time to purge the old material from your brain and reload with new. But I couldn't do that for those last two exams. Altogether, I feel like three of the five will probably go pretty well, but I don't feel as good about the other two. At this point I am beyond caring, and besides, your feelings about an exam often don't sync up with reality.

In other news, I got a summer job! The small firm that does copyright work finally got around to interviewing me, and they offered me the position. I am going in on Monday to get my computer set up and talk out details, but I will be able to work remotely, which is great. Coffee shop office, here I come! The work is part time, too, so I should be able to get a little down-time in this summer. That will be most welcome. I'm hoping I will learn a lot in this job and also that maybe it will work out so that I can keep doing it through next year. And maybe even if we like each other they would see fit to hire me after school. We'll just see how it goes. Maybe it won't be all that, but at least it's a load off my mind to have some employment.

Congrats!  Now it's time for rest and relaxation.  And baseball perhaps.  Good luck with the job, and hopefully it could pan out to be something more.  I'm especially envious of the remote work thing.  Good job.  :)
