Grades Are In // Enjoying Each Moment

I'm actually in the library right now and I should be reading for my Criminal Law class (I'll get started in a minute) but first, I wanted to update you guys!  Grades came in Friday afternoon at 3pm and it was such a nervewracking day.  Everyone was on edge and my friends and I were debating on whether or not to stay on campus and look at our grades or just disperse.  I opted to drive home immediately after my last class on Friday so that I could look at my grades in solitude and mourn alone if necessary.  I was so nervous that I actually switched my music from Drake to gospel music on the way home- hoping that a little bit of divine intervention would do the trick. Welp, I received my grades for the first semester of law school and *drumroll please* yours truly did not flunk out!  I actually did well.  My lowest grade was a B and I was pleasantly surprised and happy about that.  I was especially nervous for my Legal Research and Writing class but I guess my open memo was fairly good after all. 

That said, I spent the weekend enjoying some time at the beach.  I went to Howdy's Taqueria in Malibu for breakfast yesterday morning.  I went to the beach shortly after that and it wasn't even crowded.  It was just a lovely day and I feel like I have such a weight lifted off my shoulder now that grades are in.  I hope everyone had a great weekend :)

  2. I know how nervous you must have felt and I'm sure you're glad it's over. To be honest, I had a feeling that you were going to do well. From your posts, I could tell you were devoted. You were always studying and working on something and it definitely paid off. So congratulations to you! And here's to the new semester--one I'm sure you're going to do well in as well. (:

  9. You go girl! You truly deserve everything coming your way. Can we plan my trip to Cali already? That beach life looks and sound great lol….I started to laugh when you said you switched your music to gospel on the way home, hoping for divine intervention; I've definitely done that one TOO many times!

  12. Aw, I'm really happy you got such good grades! :) Congratulations!! I am a college student myself, therefore, I'm totally aware of the kind of nerve wracking we get when it comes to grades! And I am totally like you, I haaaaaaate to see my grades when I'm surrounded with people at school, I'm always like "leave me alone pepz, I just want to go home and I'll see my grades at home, because if for some reason I'll have the need to start crying I won't be embarrassed that because I'll be alone" haha :) Oh and on another note, I love your sunglasses!
