This is me stepping out of my box.

As many of y'all know (well the three that read this thing), I am a planner. Being a planner helps me greatly in law school b/c I can plan out my life. Such as now with finals, I plan down to the minute on how long certain activities will take me. For example, studying biz org from 12-6 pm will allow me 30.56 minutes (ok maybe not that exact) time to eat dinner and then proceed to health law studying from 6:30 till midnight. However, the planning side of me comes into conflict during finals when I am forced to budget in time for everyday things, such as showering, eating, sleeping. There just isnt time in the day for my usual 12-1 pm lunch break that (as lauren can attest to), i even scheduled classes in college around to make sure it didn't go away. But today, I didn't eat lunch at 12, or 1, but rather at 3 pm. And it wasn't even a "break" b/c I ate a sandwich while sitting at my desk studying partnership law. I noticed while I did this that something felt wrong, it wasn't right to not consider lunch a plausible break from studying. Also, showering. I haven't showered today. And i'm still sitting here in my pjs (which may be more information than is necessary). Its 3:47 pm. There just wasn't a time period to plan a shower in my day. This also goes against my normal planning life, b/c i typically shower right when I get up and it takes about 45 minutes to get ready. But today i couldn't do that b/c I woke up late, and showering would mean that I wouldn't have time to sit on my butt for an hour and eat breakfast (which I refuse to skip and I refuse to eat at my desk) and watch tv. Long story short, finals might actually be a positive. It's helping me step outside of my box and let me eat lunch at my desk, and not care that its now 3:49 pm and i'm still in my pjs. No worries, once finals are over life will go back to normal. Or maybe just maybe I'll take this as an opportunity to be sporadic and continue eating lunch on the run and skipping dinner altogether, but don't hold your breath.

Yay - understanding p'ship law
Dang - 5 1/2 more days of studying/test taking.
