Summer Fever?

I graduated from college in June. FINALLY! Before graduating, I was juggling full-time+ classes, full-time work, my daughter, my husband and our house. Obviously with significant help from the hubby. Somehow, we managed to get most everything accomplished. We were tired, but productive.

Now, here I am, one month later, wishing for a fairy to do my chores. I just want to play all of the time now. I cannot seem to focus, not even a little. When I come home, I want to play with my daughter and my husband, eat and go to bed. No, I don't really want to eat anything that requires a lot of cooking. No, I don't really want to do the load of laundry sitting in the basket. No, I don't want to put the clothes away that have been folded for three or four days. I just want to sit on our deck and eat Popsicles with Marc and Syd.

That was fine for a week or two. That should have been a nice break. When did I get so greedy? The reality is that the LSAT is coming closer and closer by the minute and not only do I not want to do any real chores around the house, but I don't feel much like studying. I've never been this way before. I'm not sure how to shake it off and get back in the groove.

I need a serious reality check. Without an acceptable score on that test, I can forget about law school. Did I mention that I have to get into one of two schools for law school to be a reality? Yep, that is true. They aren't poorly ranked either. The others are just way way too expensive. It certainly is worth an investment of time and money, but I can only go so far.

Ah..blah. I know all of that, but I can't get my heads out of the clouds long enough to do anything about it. It is very uncharacteristic of me.

I wish I could help you but I am feeling pretty unproductive lately myself!

Are you doing a prep class or anything? I know Adam did for the GMAT - although I am not sure how much help it was!

Good luck getting on track :)

Thanks! :) No prep class for me. They are ridiculously expensive. I'm going to try to wing it on my own. Usually, I'm very disciplined so I had that on my side.

I think I did progress some over the weekend. I felt less lazy.

I just graduated in May so I know the feeling! Don't be too hard on yourself, you deserve some play time!
