Week 1 of 1L

There is no question that it was a long week, but now that it’s Friday it seems that it has gone by rather fabulously. This is mostly likely a combination of the fact that it’s friday (finally!) and my tendency to color my memories in a way that tends to make them rosier than they actually were. So to recap…

I love my professors, for the most part. My contract professor was the first one that I had heard about, due to his Economic background, and I was ecstatic when I found out that I was in his class. So far, he’s living up to my expectations: he’s a total econ dork πŸ™‚ To my delight (and some of my classmates’ frustration, I’m sure), his lectures are full of allusions to economic concepts and jargons. In addition, he’s also funny and incredibly laid back. My torts professor is closer to what you would expect from a law school professor; incredibly smart, a little patronizing (but only in the most helpful manner, of course), and overall a very caring, nice teacher. The instructors for Legal Practice and Legal Research also seem incredibly help Β and nice. My LP professor even gave us “entertainment tips” for the weekend, like the Japanese festival at the botanical garden. How cute is that? The only professor that I’m still not sure about is the one for Property. Judging by the subject, I should like it…but I’ve only had the class one thus far, so we shall see what happens next week.

Meanwhile, I’ve made and stuck to a rather nice routine. I get up at 8, get to school at 9, and stay in the library after classes until around 6pm. After that I’m usually hungry and tired and either make dinner or eat out with friends and spend a couple of hours to rewind on the couch :). I don’t expect this leisurely schedule to last much longer, but so far I like it a lot. It’s pretty much like having a full time job; busy enough that I’m not bored and I always have something to do (except now since my professors haven’t posted the assignments for next week yet 😑 ), but not so busy that I don’t get enough sleep (like orientation week >.<).

All in all, I’m loving law school. Heading to the Anheuser Busch Budweiser Factory this afternoon because we finally have “california weather.”

Oh, and yay for 3-day weekend! Happy Labor Day πŸ˜€
