So tonight we have what is called the “Academic Success Initiative (ASI).”

I don’t really know what to expect.  It’s three hours with a woman who I’ve not had the best of luck with since I’ve been working here.  And it’s not just tonight–we get to play this game all over again tomorrow night and the next.  It should be…interesting.

Part of me feels like this might be a waste of time but the other part of me feels like…Well, if I don’t go, and I end up doing poorly in my classes, I’ll have to wonder if I would’ve done better with the ASI. So I’m going.  And I’m *really* hoping it’s not a waste of time because even now, I don’t have time to waste.  School hasn’t even officially started and I’m already starting to feel a little bit overwhelmed by the amount of work I have to do…

Last week I had an email saying that for my LARW (Legal Analysis, Research & Writing) class we had about 30 pages to be read for the first day of class.  No problem.  Easy. But then yesterday I got an “UPDATE” saying oh no, no, no, no.  You actually have 150 pages due before Orientation starts next week PLUS another 100 or so for first class and another 50ish for the second class.  Uh huh.  Oh and in case you thought it was just reading–it’s NOT.  You also need to do the following exercises from the workbook… blah blah blah.  So yeah.  When I thought I was on top of things by reading most of the Orientation book over the weekend, I wasn’t.  I’m actually feeling rather behind now.  Hmpf.

Welcome to Law School, right?
