A few years ago, I found out that post-travel depression is a real thing. I felt guilty because some people don’t have the wonderful opportunities that I have had to travel and see the world. I was also surprised by this because I feel like one should feel overjoyed when coming home from a wonderful trip.This however is not the always case. It is super common and some experience it worse than others. I get it really bad. My soul is always starved for new experiences and I crave them all the time so it’s really hard for me after I get home. I am told that the best cure for post-travel depression is to schedule a few days post trip to adjust. In those days, one should be kind to themselves and do fun things in order to adjust and get acclimated with daily life again. So, I did just that these last few days.
The day after returning, my dad and I went to have coffee at Starbucks (I love it) and shopping at the mall. I got a few outfits for school. My dad bought me the prettiest dress to wear to school. It is so special because right when I saw it and said I liked it, he said: “Oh, my mom would have loved that”. Last year at this time I posted about my grandmother and how she passed away. I love the dress because in a way, I feel like she will be smiling down on me when I wear it. He told me to think of it as if she had bought it for me. :) Anyway, another day we did some grocery shopping for school lunches and had lunch. My mom and I also went shopping and had lunch a few times. Today was my last day of summer. We had lunch today, ran a few errands and I had an appointment with my chiropractor. It was an easy few days and although I am not ready for summer to be over, these last few days surely helped.
So, tomorrow is it! I start my second year of law school. I have one class tomorrow. I think it is Civil Procedure. It feels like I was just starting my first year. I can’t believe I’m a 2L already. I am kind of skittish about starting though. Last semester was so horrible. I am hoping and praying that this semester will be ok. I know it’s hard work and I don’t mind to put in the work but last semester almost killed me. Ready or not though, I have to go. It’s kind of weird, after this semester, I will be half finished with law school. No matter how hard it has been, I feel like I will look back on this time so fondly. So many wonderful thing have happened and I can’t wait to see what unfolds for me.
Anyway, I just wanted post an update about what’s been up, where my travel journal blog is, and the start of my 2L year. Check back for for the travel journal blog, my first day blog, and a day in the life blog, All will be coming soon. I will end this post here. I need to pack my bag and get some sleep for my big day tomorrow. Talk to you guys again very soon! I’m a 2L! YAY!
