I could never get enough sleep this week. I stayed up way too late almost every night and then tried to function on little sleep during the days. It was rough! I did have one pleasant afternoon though. Between each class on Monday and Wednesdays, I have about an hour break, which I love because I get a lot of homework done in that time. Well last Wednesday, two of my back-to-back classes were cancelled which meant that I had four hours with nothing to do. My friend, who is basically my law school twin, and I went to this wonderful coffee shop about ten minutes away from school. It was such a nice time. We got coffee and tea, ate lunch, and studied. The music was great, the vegetarian lunch I had was fantastic, and I really hope we can go back again soon. This place has great atmosphere and it’s just one of those places that feels good! Such a nice time even though we had to study.
I am thankful for that time. It’s crazy to think that we are going to be lawyers soon enough and we might not get the be "best friends" again like we are now. I will be across the country and living a different life soon which scares the hell out of me… I am just hoping that when that time comes, I am able to stand in the face of fear and just jump, jump of the cliff and fly. I am sure it will be ok though. Not very long ago I felt the same way about law school and was scared to leave my job and the security of mediocrity. Hopefully, when that time comes, my wings will have grown and I will be ready.
I also got to go to yoga twice this week so far. I had not been able to go in two weeks which made me sad. I wanted to go today but I don’t think I will be able to. I pulled a muscle so bad yesterday that I can’t walk. Haha. I tried a new pose at yesterday's practice and I almost got it. I’m sure that that is where this pulled muscle came from. OMG, it hurts so bad! The weather is really nice today. It’s kinda cold. I might dig out a sweater for myself and one of the dogs and try to walk/limp it off. I might also just stay home and pout about it. LOL It really hurts.
Lastly, my chapter of SALDF is gearing up for new things this week. I called our first meeting for this coming Wednesday. It will be brief but I want to let everyone know about the new things coming up. We are hosting a film screening of Cowspiracy and hosting a table for Speak Out For Farmed Animals Week! I am so excited to have these things as our first projects on campus. Also, at the meeting, I will be letting everyone know about the opportunity to go to the Animal Law CLE in December. I had a fantastic time last year and I can’t wait to go again this year. I found a vegan place close to school that we can get vegan snacks and food from for our table and the film screening. I am so excited! After all this, it will be time for finals so at least we will have a few things under our belt as a chapter!
Anyway, I will end the blog post here. I want to rest this muscle for a little while before I get started on homework. I have to work on Toxic Torts/Environmental Law stuff today. I am a little behind but am hoping to get all caught up today. Talk to you guys next week! Hope you all are blessed this coming week! Til next time…
