I used to be a hugely sentimental person. It creates problems, because you start attaching meaning to all kinds of things you own. In this move I’ve either sold, given away, or thrown away about 80% of everything I own. I even went so far as to do this with everything I had at my parent’s house too. They were more than thrilled and it’s going to make my move for law school that much easier.
The place I’ll be moving into in Connecticut is already furnished, so I’m only taking a car packed with things. I really tried to limit myself. The trunk is the only place I’m allowing myself to put “real” things. This includes all my pots and pans and anything that isn’t clothing related. The clothes will all get thrown into the backseat and then I’ll be off. It’s only eight days until I leave, so it’s all just now starting to hit me that it’s finally happening.
In the mean-time, I’ve been reading more “get yourself ready for law school” posts. There’s a great new guide on TLS that talks about doing well and how to set up your schedule. It’s pretty in-depth and I especially like how pictures have been included to let you see sample briefs/outlines/schedules. So be sure to put yourself on some kind of schedule or general plan before your classes start. I’ve already got my big sign to motivate me every day, a reminder of just how much I pay each class-day to go to lecture, $361.54! Hopefully that simple reminder will keep me from ever skipping or showing up without my work already finished.
