7 Things You Should Know Before Dating Someone In Law School


Thought Catalog

1. When you fight, you will never win.

Give up arguing with a law student because he or she will not back down (arguing is practically their job). They will challenge you until they are blue in the face…even if you are obviously correct. Thus, be emotionally ready because they will find some defamation of your character or numerous evidentiary examples of why they are clearly winning the argument. In the end just accept the fact—they are always right.

2. They will dictate all preferred times and methods of communication.

If you can’t be flexible on how you keep in contact with your significant other in law school then quit while you’re ahead. You need to know that you will not stay awake until the wee hours of the night talking about your dreams and goals until one of you falls asleep. If you’re lucky, 10 minutes on the phone…

How To Be In Charge Of Your Own Happiness

Thought Catalog

One of the many new responsibilities that comes with adulthood is being in charge of your own happiness. Your mom isn’t around anymore to notice when you’re not smiling as much, to put your hair behind your ear and offer to make you a sandwich. She’ll be there to support you, as your friends will, when the going really gets tough. But they all have their own lives, and they can’t sit on the phone forever. As an adult, you’re in charge of your own happiness. 

This begins with the basics. Choosing a job — a career — that interests you, challenges you, puts a smile on your face more often than a scowl. A job that may leave you exhausted at the end of the day, but it’s an exhaustion that feels good on your bones because you know you did something worthwhile. It’s a job that adds a…

Why It’s So Hard To Matter

Thought Catalog

Screen shot 2013-12-10 at 10.58.35 AM

If there’s one thing we need in life, it’s to feel significant. The need is right there next to water, air and Big Macs — slightly less tangible, but always present. Every time we go to a party, we want to feel that the atmosphere changes a little when we arrive, that we’re bringing something to the table, and when we’re not there, our absence is noticed. Our presence missed. That there are others who are inconsequential to the mix, but it’s not us. We want to know that we’re leaving a mark on the people we come into contact with — that our interactions change people, if even in the tiniest way. That we matter.

Our decisions have to mean something too. The ways we choose to spend our days must be impactful. Whether it’s that mother who gave up the VP position to stay home with her kids…

skipped the gym for almost two weeks and i have a 50 year olds’ stamina

Since April 2013, I’ve begun to push my self of doing (more) exercise (than just run and walk fast in order to catch a bus), and joined a gym was my first choice. You may know why, it because our society and working place and the environment really didn’t leave any choice for us to have a proper exercise. We didn’t lived in a friendly neighborhood (as seen on tv serials) where we could easily run without having any interference. And unfortunately (i wanna say sadly), my office didn’t have a proper (indoor) sports centre; it actually has a tennis court, a basketball court, a volleyball court. But as a shy kinda girl, i prefer doing an indoor sports with less of people watching. So, after lots of thinking (i may think lots about the gym membership would cost me) and taking advices from my friends, i decided to enroll a 1 year gym membership at Fitness First.

The first day at the gym was like hell for me. So, i got this 3 times free exercise with a Personal Trainer, and i set my first day at the gym to be my first day with PT. And i made the wroongg decision! Due to lack of exercise in years (hell yes), i let my PT literally embarassed me. I may joined a futsal team back then in college whereas we practiced like 2/3 time a week, and later i may ran once a week (for like 4 months). But that feels nothing like a real exercise. That 1st session with my PT really slapped me in the face. Man, i really should working out. Working my ass out to be healthy, to have a strong and reflexed body, and also to get in shape.

7 months later, in November.. working load had consumed most of my time. My time for the gym and even for my favorite activities ; leyeh-leyeh nonton dvds dan baca novel. I had skipped the gym for almost 2 weeks now, which is the rare thing for me to do considering the amount of payment the gym has costed me, and i felt awful already. My stamina is decreasing, i get to be sleepy a lot, and my health condition is not really okay (i can blame the weather sih). Well, for the past 6 months since i joined the gym, never a day that i feel sicker than today. Yes, going to the gym means say no to drugs (which i hate), and say goodbye to doctors.
