How to Set Yourself Up for a Productive Study Session

  One thing we all know for certain: you will be studying while in law school. But it's hard to stay focused and productive when you're spending all your time at home. It's easy to study at school surrounded by other people studying with you, but studying at home is a whole new story.  Here are a few simple things you can do to have a productive study session at home. Don't forget that you can make your study sessions better by paying attention to what works for you and what doesn't work for you.  1. Eliminate Distractions Now, this may feel like a no-brainer, but it's easier said than done. Put your phone on airplane mode, put some headphones in, do whatever it takes to get rid of any distractions around you. Personally, I like to be in a quiet place with instrumental music playing so I don't get distracted by the lyrics. If I can avoid talking to anybody, I will, because once I start talking, I won't stop.  2. Stay Hydrated and Make Sure to Eat If you&

A Week in Outfits: Online Law School

Time to state the obvious: online law school is different than in-person law school. I know, I just blew your mind.  All jokes aside, getting ready for an online class is so different from getting ready for an in-person class. I'm definitely more prone to wearing makeup for an in-person class than I am for an online class, and the clothes I wear definitely change, too. As much as I try to dress in the same way at home as I would for an in-person class, sometimes I just want to throw on a pair of sweatpants and a nice sweater to make it look like I'm dressed up on camera.  This semester, I have two hybrid classes and two completely online classes, so make sure to look below to see what I wore last week to school for some outfit inspo!  Monday, February 1 I'm lucky enough to not have any classes on Mondays, so my actual week doesn't start until Tuesday. I'm also not externing anywhere this semester, so I spent the day focusing on my readings for the week. I also spent

Why You Should Meal Prep in Law School

  As fun as it is to cook, making food can take up a lot of time. If you're like me, you're probably used to busy days where you're moving from task to task without much thought. If I'm being honest, I'll sometimes lose track of time and forget to eat lunch until late in the afternoon. Meal prepping has helped me out a lot with those problems because I don't feel like it's taking me away from some of the work I have to get done.  So why should you get into meal prepping? It'll save you time, money, and sanity, like I mentioned above. It's helped me out a lot, and I know it'll help you out, too. Below are some reasons why you should start meal prepping, as well as how you can get started.  Saving Time Like I said before, meal prepping helps you save time. This was one of the biggest reasons why I got into meal prepping. You won't waste any time trying to decide what to make or waiting on takeout to arrive if you meal prep. Basically, you'r

How to Become a Morning Person

  I've always liked getting up early. There's something about relaxing early in the morning before starting my day that puts me in a great mood. Personally, I'm not a fan of rolling out of bed and logging onto my classes because I'm not as focused and awake, so if you're like me, here are some tips to help you start becoming a morning person. Prep the Night Before Nothing is going to make you feel more stressed out in the morning than having to run around and get yourself ready for the day. It already takes enough time to work out, get dressed, and get ready for classes, so setting yourself up for success the night before will make your mornings run smoother.  Spend some time laying out your clothes, preparing your breakfast or lunch, setting your desk up, or packing your backpack to give yourself a leg up in the morning. Even if it's just doing one thing to prepare for the morning, it's still one less thing for you to worry about the next morning.  Create a
