Day 011 of 131 //

CrimPro and Ramen.

I get to push another post this week since today is a holiday. I’m not sure if I can finish my readings for tomorrow’s ATAP but I’ll sure as hell try. I really want to be called for recitation tomorrow so I can focus on my other subjects. With that being said, this will be a long night.

Ya’ll have a good day! 💜

Days 004, 005 & 006 of 131 //

The past three days have been busy, thus my late update. So far, I:

  • Scanned additional book for Civil Procedure
  • Attended Human Rights class (this will be a two-unit-killer class)
  • Assisted my girlfriend in her provision memorization
  • Attended Agency, Trust & Partnership [ATaP] class (I have the same professor I had in Negotionable Instruments and Insurance law)
  • Checked out resources for two of my classes already assigned with professors
  • Studied a bit for ATaP (I get to use my Rabuya CivLaw reviewer again!)

Quote of the day:

“Often the best of us springs from the worst of us.” —André Gide

I found this quote in my #criminallaw textbook in the chapter on conspiracy. Take that as you will.

It reminded me of the #diet struggle.

Return Post // 06.16.19 //

Happy Pride month!

Hello, tumblrworld, it has been a while. I do apologize for my long absence–a month at least, if I’m not mistaken. A lot has happened since and wow, I have lots to tell!

WEEK BEFORE FINAL EXAM

As part of tradition for (most) law school here in our country, we celebrate the last meeting for every class with food, token(s) and the inevitable class picture. Yes, it was quite costly. But it may also serve as last appeal to the good will of the “gods” a. k. a. professors.

FINAL EXAM WEEK

I was prepared for most my classes and I was satisfied! I even spent less on coffee, which was really something. The only downside was that my CivPro suffered. I need lots of prayers for that one!

WEEK AFTER FINAL EXAM

I celebrated the end of the semester by sleeping for over 12 hours. Law is exhausting and it is worth it!

JUNE 8TH // TREE PLANTING DAY

This day, so far, is the highlight of my year. We travelled four hours from Pasay City to Quezon province; trekked for almost an hour to reach Mts. Banahaw and San Cristobal Protected Landscape; planted three Narra seedlings each, for a total of 300!

There is law requiring this. Unfortunately, there’s no penalty provided for failure to comply. Thus, it is not strictly enforced.

PRESENT DAY

I returned to my hometown for a bit. My mom got into a minor accident so I have to stay and assist her for a while. Good thing she didn’t suffer serious injury!

This week, I:

  • Sleep early now and get at least 8 hours of sleep
  • Wake up mostly between 5-6 am
  • Often go for a run early morn for most days
  • Schedule short review in Criminal Procedure
  • Eat more fruits and drink smoothies now

So, that’s it!

For those currently on vacation, ya’ll enjoy because you sure earned it!

For those with classes/exams, hang in there! You’re doing a great job. Best of luck for your exams!

For the rest, ya’ll have a good day! 💜

A week before Exam

I am a person that likes to be in control of my daily life, although I would love to just laze around!! I have a pretty hectic schedule packed with studies and all extra activities that I am involved in. This leads me to having a pretty tight schedule and a daily planner :)

And I have a daily schedule which I make sure to follow. I don’t get to go hang out with my friends before I manage to complete my notes for the day!! So, this is what I practice so that I don’t end up looking like a zombie on my study week. 

  1. Notes should be ready after class - or if you are the type that needs to read once before class, that is even better for you to prep notes before!
  2. Keep away from all kinds of distraction during your study time. I know it’s hard to do so because all kinds of materials in my phone too, but it helps to just turn off your mobile data for your social apps!
  3. Practice with the assignments as it really does help to be familiar with the kind of outline that your teacher prefers. Plus, skimming through past year reduces my anxiety level during exams!
  4. Make sure your revision time table is ready and set, and follow through with your plans!
  5. Taking breaks in between studying or even hanging out with friends helps ease your mind, but don’t let your brain settle into the ‘chill’ mode for too long.
Aye, all the best!
