19/50 days of productivity | 28 May 2020
i was in a slump for the majority of the day because i woke up early and was really drained. its nearly 11pm and im finally picking myself up. made myself a fresh mint tea with lemon slices and i’d highly recommend it, especially when you don’t want to be drinking caffeine near bedtime.
I left litigation to be general counsel at an enterprise software company. I was at my firm for 6 years (prior, during and after law school), so it was a hard choice.
I left for more money and a personal life and now I also work from home permanently. Not to mention that I have wanted to be general counsel at a big tech company for a while now. My dream is to be general counsel at a bigger company eventually (at least $5B+ revenue).
My husband and I haven’t been able to travel much since I graduated last year, took the bar exam, and we bought a condo. Now we can both work from anywhere, so we’re going to start traveling a lot once it’s safe!
Study in quarantine day 32
In the last week I didn’t feel motivated and I couldn’t study as hard as I should have. Because of that I probably failed my Law History exam. I felt awful but it made me realize that I can’t give up and I have to get my shit together. So I started studying for my next exam and I hope it will be better than the last one.
What are you guys doing now that schools out?
I have been doing some bar prep even though I don’t take it till next year. I feel that it has been extremely helpful. I also am self studying historic preservation and studying a lot about Colonial Williamsburg. I have been there so many times but still feel that I don’t know enough about all the trades and the history.

also me: picks up pride and prejudice and the picture of dorian gray for the nth time in a week
I’m going to start making YouTube videos after I take the LSAT
And one of the vids I’m planning on making is a “How I Studied for the LSAT” so I’m taking a lot of little pics and videos and I decided I want one of the parts of the video to be dedicated to coffee so I’m taking pics of every cup of coffee/Red Bull I drink between now and the LSAT JUST for studying and the number is already too damn high
okay, i can’t share this with my law school friends because it’s bad taste to brag about your grades when you’re graded on the same curve, but GUESS WHO HAS A 3.0
Memorial Day. Love that it’s finally hot outside. My parents have an incredible outdoor space and I intend on taking full advantage of it.
Sometimes I think, the professor life doesn’t seem too bad, but then I think about having to get a PhD, doing tons of research and dealing with undergrads just to get underpaid and to watch the football and basketball coaches make more than 10x your salary with a fraction of your effort and education level and get more valued and liked by the school
Queen of always taking on too much ✨

What are the best LSAT prep books and resources to start studying for lsats?
Please help 😅
Generally journals- finish the writing competition if you can and turn it in at least.
Clinics are great as experience if you talk about them- often not something they actively look for in a resume.
