The Night Of A Thousand Hours

October 28, 2007 1 comment

In 25 hours I will be in class writing a midterm for my Politics of Advanced Industrial States class. I have so much to do its not even funny. As of right now, I have something like 15 academic journal articles to read by the end of tonight.  This is going to be hell.  I was supposed to get on campus at like 1o but I slept in and woke up at 9.  THEN I got stuck in traffic for like an hour.  I’ll probably be here til 11pm.  Its going to be one long day.  I just have remind myself that is just one more day where I have to toil over my books.  After that all I have to worry about is my LSAT prep and the essays that I have to begin working on.  That won’t be so bad because I can spread those out and pace myself.  So yea….ONE MORE DAY!!!

Time to kick the books.

Unproductive Days and University Life

Well its been a horrid week this week.  I had an assignment due on Tuesday.  After I handed that in, I decided to take a break for the day.  I was pretty burnt out so I figured it would be good.  What really ended up happening is a whole lot of nothing.  I didn’t go to class on Wednesday and I didn’t go to class on Thursday.  In fact, I didn’t come to school on Thursday. This is despite the fact that I have a midterm this coming Monday.  Now I am stuck in the Library Tower on a Friday night just beginning to study for this exam.  And let me tell you, there is A LOT to study.  The fact that my brother showed up home with a brand new Wii console didn’t help the situation either. 

 Some other thoughts: The more I think about it, the more it seems like I am in fact living the typical life that a university student lives.  Life revolves around school.  It involves being poor to the point where sometimes I have to second guess whether I can afford to buy lunch.  It involves spending long nights in the library (like today) and always being tired.  It involves much intellectual activity, exchanging of ideas and conjuring up great theories that could make the world a better place and then forgetting about them a few days later. 

The biggest thing, however, I think is the the friends.  I’ll focus on one group of my friends in particular for this entry.  This group of friends is centred around one girl.  If it wasn’t for her, I would not know the rest of them.  And anytime we congregate, it is at her place.  Anything and anything creative we want to do, we do together.  If we want to cook, we cook together, if we want to go skating, we skate together…etc.  We are all students going to either University or polytech.  Its just something about this group of people that makes me thankful that I know them.  They are the group that will ultimately dictate my university life.  Its just nice to have people like that around.  Even if we do nothing, we do nothing together.  This may sound corny, but our lives together resemble a lot like the college kids you see on TV.  It may not be as elaborate (going on trips every second week and so on) but I am pretty sure that in my realm, that’s as close as its going to get.  Lately, we have this thing where we all gather at her place on Thursday nights and we all sit on the sofa and watch ER, Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty and The Office.  Especially during these stressful times, I live for those Thursday nights.  Student life is a good life.

I don’t know why but there’s an increased security presence in the Library tonight.  I’ve seen more security guards tonight in the Library than I have ever….literally. I wonder whats going on? 

Now, back to studying the diversity of electoral systems.

I Think I Am Going Crazy

I just took a small nap right now and I dreamt that I was asking some prof if he could write me a reference letter.  Unforunately, I woke up before he could write one up for me.  I think I am going mad.

Despite my nap, I am still tired.  I so don’t want to study today. I know I should since I have a midterm coming up on Monday but Im just too burnt out from this past week. 

LSAT In My Dream

October 22, 2007 3 comments

For the past weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I have been thinking about nothing but the LSAT.  My journey towards law school pretty much started on Friday. Before that, the LSAT was in the back of my mind but hardly.  This morning I got a taste of what its going to be like for the next few months.  I dreamt of taking the LSAT.  And when I woke up, I woke up all stressed out rather than relaxed and refreshed.  Life is going to be complete hell…

I had to sleep in today and miss class. I haven’t slept properly since last week.  I could have slept more but I have to meet with my prof at 12.30.  Get this: I email her asking what her office hours are and she emails me back saying that her office hours today are from 12.30-1.00.  Who the hell has a half an hour office hour?! Hopefully I’ll get there before the other students.

Time to get ready. Hopefully I’ll see Hot LSAT Class Girl today.
*Fingers crossed*

LSAT Prep

October 22, 2007 1 comment

I just finished a weekend LSAT prep course.  It was the cheapest Class I could find.  And seeing as how my financial situations isn’t all that great, I had to go with it.  But it wasn’t actually all that bad.  The guy who was teaching it is apparently one of the foremost experts on the LSAT in all of Canada. And it was good in the sense that he didn’t give us any high expectations about raising our LSAT scores by X % or anything like that. He told us straight up that your score depended wholly on you and you alone.  He was there to just teach us the skills. It’s up to us to practise and put in the effort. All in all I think it was a good experience. The hard work starts now.

I must say though, I was quite distracted by a very pretty girl in the class.  She had beautiful almond skin and a body that was like whoa.  The biggest turn on was that she’s taking the LSAT. If fate has mercy on me, I’ll meet her in the law school that I get admitted to. I am crossing my fingers. I think I am going to try and get some sleep now. 2.5 straight days of analytical reasoning and logical analysis isn’t fun at all.

Well, Here It Is…

The blog I have been thinking about creating for some time has finally now been created.  I guess this is my first official post to kick off the launch!  I got addicted to blogging about a year ago or so.  So its finally exciting to have a space of my own.  I have another blog on here.  But because that blog is of a different theme, I’ve made this space so I can be myself and go off topic as much as I like.  The blog is pretty bare bones right now but I’ll be working on it every chance I get. Layout and appearance is very important to me so be sure to wear a hard hat because this place will be under construction for some time to come.

But yea…this is it!
