Things I've learned in my first semester of law school

Besides law
  1. I may have been a big fish in a small pond
    I didn't think that I thought I was usually the smartest person in the room, but maybe I did? I might be an asshole?
  2. Graduate school is, in fact, a full time job
    This is the first time in my teen/adult life I haven't had a paying job and I'm working more than ever.
  3. Free lunches in exchange for meeting attendance is a great deal
    If you can sit on a laptop during the club meeting. Averaging at least one free lunch a week
  4. Imposter syndrome can start before you even enter a field
    "Hey, future lawyers!" Please stop pressuring me, people. One step at a time.
  5. I am more afraid of failure than I thought I was
    I've never actually failed at anything. I quit things I felt I wasn't good at, but even then I was usually okay at them
  6. I'm also terrified of letting people I love down
    I thought coming out as a democrat upset my parents, I can't imagine what fucking up law school would do to them
  7. I entirely too hard on myself and if I need to listen to show tunes to survive then I should just listen to my damn show tunes
  8. Good luck on midterms
