State of My Life

It's been well over ten days since I posted. Somewhere along the way law school turned into law school. I am at the library countless hours every day and I fear that I will not have enough time to finish everything I want to get done before exams. In college I never had these worries. I always knew that I would have time to study and often I felt I had too much time. Those days are long since over. I now feel like I don't have enough hours in the day. I know look at 8 hours in the library as nothing. They are officially turning me into a drone in some ways. I can now pour over documents for hours and not even realize how much time is passed. In a way this is good because it will help me out in my professional career, but in a way it is bad because it makes it the line between your professional life and your personal life a bit more blurry. You tend to work more hours and spend more time on work and less and less time on your personal life. When I talk to friends on the phone they often say things like 'wow I haven't heard from you in forever' and 'where have you been'. I have a feeling that much of my life will end up being like this. I think I am in the early stages of becoming a work-a-holic. I am halfway dissinterested though because I do enjoy the work much more than other work I have done.
One quick observation, for I am at the library and must get back to work on my memo. In our study rooms they have up signs that say 'this room is for the use of (our students) only'. I am thinking that first off to even get into the building you have to have a school ID or be with someone who does and are they really running into the problem of people sneaking into our library and using the study rooms. It seems weird to me. Oh well I guess it is just kind of a perfunctory sign. Back to memo writing. I think i am going to write a very long post in December summing up my first semester. I am sure one thing I will say is that during your first semester late october through December really turns into law school time and personal time is a thing of the past. Oh well.
