All in all, I'm pretty happy with how the semester went. It turns out that law school Andrea is a heck of a lot more responsible than undergrad Andrea. I had perfect attendance this semester. The most class I missed was 5 minutes one day when I got stuck in some crazy, weird, unexpected traffic.
I also did all of my reading for the whole semester. If it wasn't 100% finished before class, it was 100% finished before I went to bed that night.
The two papers I had to write this semester? I had fully completed drafts days before they were due, giving me more time than I knew what to do with for editing (turns out when you have that much time to edit, you wind up practically re-writing said paper at least 2 times).
Even though I am really proud of how I managed more school work than I knew existed, I'm equally proud of how I managed to take care of myself. When I was in undergrad, I ate all of my stress. That's why I left UVA a full 30 pounds heavier than I started. I'm proud to say I survived my first semester without gaining an ounce! I also made sure I slept, ate well, and exercised.
The most important thing is that I know I can do it. But until I have to do it again I'm going to sit back, relax and enjoy having the next few weeks off.
