Wednesdays I have class from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with about an hour break from 3:30 to 4:30. It is the roughest day of my week by far. Possibly the most challenging aspect is that my most demanding class (as far as in-class participation and activity) goes from 4:30 to 6:30 and then picks up again from 6:45 to 8:45 with a small-section discussion.
Today was brutal. I do not excel in class participation. Right now I’m thinking I’m not a quick thinker or that my words just don’t come out right (as happened today, several times). But taking a more optimistic view, perhaps it’s that I’m out of practice, or have never been in a classroom environment even remotely like law school. I hope I’ll adjust and be more effective in class, because my grade is partially based on participation in these classes.
But for now, I’m exhausted, and overwhelmed. Time for sleeping. 🙂
