Dave’s second week of work brought with it a new schedule for us. His first week was mostly business-skills training (easy). His second week was a primer on the computer programming language Java (much harder). So, since he had a few hours of homework every night and wanted to study hard to keep on top of things, we were up at 5am pretty much every morning so he could get his work done. It was good for our productivity, and bad for our sleep deficit. But, we managed to make it through the week and had a pretty relaxing weekend to catch up on sleep, write a brief (me), and study some more Java (Dave). This week promises to be more of the same, so we’re bracing ourselves for the onslaught of work.
But, on the bright side, Dave’s back is feeling better and things are easing up temporarily in the law school department. With my first draft of my brief turned in today, I can breathe easy for a week or so. We’ve got next Monday off (President’s Day) and a couple of classes cancelled this week. Plenty of time to catch up on a backlog of work! I’ve also got a couple of summer job interviews scheduled.
In the meantime, we’re making sure to schedule in some down time (gotta catch up on TV sometime, right?).
