Menagerie Looks Back

Shelley at The Menagerie recently posted some reflections on her 2L year of law school, including this great big-picture advice:

My token advice for the 2L year (similar to my 1L advice): Work hard, but know when to stop. Read for every class. Keep the hobbies you enjoy. Cut back on your extra-curricular commitments, but make time for friends and family outside of school, even if you don't think you have the time to. Drink good wine on occasion. Pamper yourself in the run up to finals. Don't listen to rumors. Take practice exams. Befriend your fellow students and ignore the competitive ones. Go for long walks during study breaks, to clear your mind. Smile at everyone you see; say "hi" to a random new person every day. If you have a bad feeling about a class the first day, drop it and take something else.

Right now, thinking about 2L is about the furthest thing from my mind, but I hope to remember to return to sensible advice like this come August when the crazy train starts firing up again.
