My dad was in a car crash the first week of school. It was a head on collision and he was not at fault. Thank God he is ok. I had never been more scared in my life. It happened on a Friday night. I had just got out of the bath tub and settled down with my property book for a long night of reading and the phone rang. It was midnight so I knew something was wrong. I saw it was my dad calling and I don’t think I even said “Hello”. I think I just answered “What’s wrong?” He asked me to come to the hospital because he had been in a small crash. It turns out it was a bad crash and he was just trying not to worry me. I threw on whatever clothes were laying on the floor and I ran out of the house. I drove as fast as I could to the hospital where the emergency people, of course, gave me all kinds of hell about getting to the back to see him. FInally, I got back there and my poor dad was laying there with his neck in a brace. My heart instantly broke. He was admitted to the hospital and stayed for a few nights.
I ended up missing a day of school but it doesn’t matter. I could never go on without him. I am just so thankful that he is ok. I have been checking on him non-stop, cooking for him, and bringing him groceries and things. He is still in some pain but he is recovering. His truck was totalled. On Friday after school, he and I went car shopping. He didn’t get anything yet but I can’t wait to see what he decides to get.
Anyway, I did have a few issues at school but everything seems to be falling into place... I have just had to accept things and focus on the bigger picture. I am very swamped with school work and there is not enough time to deal with it. This week I have a citation assignment due for legal writing as well as a memo for constitutional law. I have no idea what to do about the memo. I’m as confused as they come at this point. It’s due on Friday, so apparently I will have it all figured out by then… Prayers please.
I got a lot of outlining, reading, and note cards done today but I’m nowhere near done. On top of everything that went wrong, I was also having trouble getting back into the swing of things. I got used to last semester. I was used to my classes and my professors. Now, I have all new classes and all new professors. The classes this semester are so much harder. That same old feeling of fear is back again. The abusive environment of law school is breathing down my neck again. It’s depressing some days. There have already been days filled with tears. I am hoping that the days get better. It’s been really tough so far...
I have a lot of good things planned for this blog so keep an eye out. I will be doing a “day in the life” blog post again for this semester soon. I may even have some good news in a few weeks/months that will change everything! (No, I’m not quitting law school! lol).
Ok, so I do have to go for now. I have some more reading that has to be done for tomorrow morning, I still need to eat, and take a bath. I will post again real soon. Thank you guys for being patient and please send good vibes and prayers for me!
