today – not so bad. maybe i can do this. my advisor held a lunch meeting for her group of advisees today [maybe 12 of us]. this woman just so happens to be the most terrifying human alive and my civil procedure prof and an expert on international litigation [that’s what i want to study]. so maybe it’s good i got assigned to her. we’ll call her neon [she wears these BRIGHT suits all the time. think the brightest jewel tone ever and magnify it by 12].
anyway, so we spent an hour talking about adjusting to law school, how horrible our torts prof is, and she really just assuaged my fears and hatred of what i’m currently doing. my favorite comment: “if you don’t hate it already, you’re doing something wrong”. i like her already.
so after my temper tantrum yesterday and everything that caused me to get in that mood, i can’t help but think about the best advice advisor man ever gave me: “don’t ever doubt yourself, you’re capable of much more than you think, so take a step back, believe in yourself, and know that you’ve got a lot of people rooting for you.” adivsor man is my hero. i’m just going to take it one day at a time and deal with it as it comes. i really do want to practice law internationally. so to get to that i just have to do this all now.
it’ll work out. 🙂
