This perfectly sums up my life of late.
My sleep issues are back again. They came back to haunt me during recess week where I clocked 3 – 5 am nights and since then I’ve been having problems getting my sleep cycle back to normal. Law sku friends would remember how in Year 1, I slept on the floor, on my yoga mat because I had difficulty waking up because of my late nights so I thought it was a brilliant plan because if you sleep in an uncomfortable position/ location, it would be much easier to get up right? NO. I ended up waking up to an allergic reaction to my yoga mat and my face kinda swelled up/ had rashes. So I am definitely not going to relive that experience again.
Slept around 2 last night and it was MASSIVE struggletown this morning to get up and out of bed for a 9 am class. Ended up snoozing and oversleeping which led to a frantic mother who woke me up saying I was late – mad rush to get ready, get dressed and I thought I was getting a ride but the parents went back to sleep and so I grabbed taxi and was basically feeling v grumpy at having to spend 20 bucks cabbing (when it could have been spent on a nice meal or it could go to my workout clothes fund/ my eatpraylove trip fund). Then I spent quite a big part of the morning feeling like a petulant child – a mixture of sleepiness, the ache from working out yesterday (i can’t walk properly, it hurts HALP) and a thought I had as I fell asleep last night (
why did it work out so well for other people, why did we have to luck out) Half way through class, I told pris “please remind me to sleep earlier next time” and then shortly after that, as I was scrawling through tumblr I found the above picture ^ LOL. It is that time of the academic year again when you just feel perpetually tired because school.
I’m quite sure I have previous posts of the same title some time in the past 3 years of law school so v 4.0 is really just because it’s year 4 now and the thought of being a final year both scares and excites me at the same time. There are times that I look back on the past 3 years and try to take stock of what I have accomplished in law school – ??? and that scares me haha. But there are also moments when I think “wow, I can’t wait to graduate, can’t wait to train and start work and for real life to start because there are opportunities aplenty out there” (this is when I am most optimistic, when I don’t think about the glut which by the way, the glut is real).
But I think real life is actually now. (hahaha this is not some act cryptic and cheem ending but I just need to rush off to prep for PG sharing actually lol)
