Virtual Coffee Date: October 2016

October by the numbers:

  • 9 Swerve classes
  • Uplift classes
  • 7 interviews
  • 10000 cups of coffee consumed (just a rough estimate)

It’s been a crazy month so grab an iced (maybe even a hot coffee) and let’s chat:

If we were having coffee today…I’d tell you I have “graduation goggles on.” For the past few months, I’ve been signing up for things I wouldn’t normally do at law school.  It wasn’t important to me to get involved with student clubs or do things like moot court. However, it was important to me to get all the practical experience I can through internships and clinics but anything outside of that, I didn’t really care much. Now I’m signing up for these things like doing an intramural trial competition at school, international law moot court, etc.  As miserable as law school is and as busy as I already am, I graduate in 7 months and at this point I’m just trying to diversify my experiences.  As a friend said recently, “this is your last time to try anything new and not actually have to commit more than a semester to it.” So why not? Here’s to all the new experiences!

If we were having coffee today…I’d tell you that I can’t get myself to run. A lot has changed since law school started. This is the first fall that I haven’t done either a half-marathon or a marathon, it’s been over 6 months after my last half marathon (the longest stretch of time that I haven’t done a half since I started running them 4 years ago). Most of my workouts having been a mix of strength classes or spin. Maybe I’m burnt out on running but I do get nostalgic whenever I see runners around or seeing runners at expos. Or the excitement around the NYC Marathon, which is on Sunday!

If we were having coffee today…I’d tell you that interviewing is hard especially the types of interviews I’ve been doing (i.e. mock client interviews, closing arguments, etc.) but oddly they are kinda fun. They just aren’t the types of interviews most people, including myself, are used to.

If we were having coffee today…I’d tell you that I’ve never been much of an “arts” person but I do have taken a liking to performance art like jazz or the ballet, both of which I’ve been able to attend.

If we were having coffee today…I’d tell you that I’ve been reading some great books – “Emotional Agility” and “Don’t Split the Difference” (a great negotiation book).  Essentially they are both psychology books but so many great tips.  Next on my to-do list is Amy Schumer’s book!

If we were having coffee today…I’d tell you I’m so excited about all the Friendsgivings I get to go to this month! What are you looking forward to in November?
