Under 30

Third term officially starts tomorrow—a fact I’m feeling ambivalent about. “Ambivalent” as in feeling strongly about two contradictory things (remember that scene in Girl, Interrupted?). I’m raring to go back to law courses this term (no more MBA subjects, yay!) but I’m also dreading the next three months of abject toil… The law, they say, is a jealous mistress—it demands one’s full attention. That means the poor law student who’s also struggling to hold down a job while studying has nearly no free time left… (not even to trim my cuticles! which I happen to enjoy doing, heheh). To keep my head above the water I’ve had to learn to be acutely aware of how I spend my time, right down to each 30-minute chunk of it. Like now, for instance. I can spend no more than 30 minutes writing this blog entry, because I’ve already budgeted the next 30 minutes for memorizing Art 415 of the Civil Code!

Which brings me to the point of this post: with classes starting I’m feeling a bit less optimistic about being able to sustain this blog. Just a bit. I suppose I won’t be able to post as frequently as I would like. That, or maybe I’ll work on cutting down my posting time from 30 to 15…

Ah, you're into the second age of a blogger, the one that comes after "Yes, I finally have my own blog!" and is characterized by the comment, "Well, what do i write about now?".

If you can't type any faster, you don't have to write original material; commenting on or cribbing from (with proper attribuition, of course) other stuff that you see on the Web can keep your blog going :)
