Things have been crazy for me. I graduated from university and jumped right into law school. I quit the job I had for 4.5 years and moved on to looking at temp positions due to the lowered stress levels so that I can focus on school.
School is hard. Nothing really prepares you for law school. You basically have to sink or swim and pray you get to swim. I understand why the schools do this, but I honestly wish there was more prep before going in. They warn you that sacrifices will be needed, but what they don't tell you is just hard some of those sacrifices can be.
The shop is still up and running and it's doing well.
Winter break is a great thing even if it's only two weeks long and I've gotten a cold due to the crazy California weather.
