7 Thoughts You Have While Preparing For The LSAT

This exam may be hard. But guess what? I’m harder.

7 Thoughts You Have While Preparing For The LSAT

1. Are you effing kidding me? It costs how much to register to this exam?

Ahh, registration, the beginning of the end. Registration is where you first realize that getting into law school is going to be no joke. First off, it costs you $180 to even take the stupid exam. Registration is where the panic and stress officially start to set in and you realize that this sh*t isn’t going to be easy.

2. Are you effing kidding me? Study material costs how much?

If you thought registration was bad, get ready for another sucker punch. Study material isn’t cheap. And the good stuff, that’ll cost you at least one of your kidneys.

3. How rich do you have to be to actually do this?

This is the thought I dwell on. I’m convinced that the law school admission process is carefully crafted to complement the assets of rich kids. First off, I shed a big, sad, crocodile tear while registering for this exam. You know why? Because I just had to fork over at least two days' pay. Rich kids don’t bat an eyelash at the $180 required to register. Second, the better the study material, the pricier it is. Yea you can buy mediocre study material for cheap(ish) but like I said, it's mediocre. The real good stuff, like actual LSAT prep classes or Apps that have LSAT geniuses on call, that’ll cost you an organ (or seven).

4. I can do this.

Somewhere, somehow you muster up some optimism to light your way throughout the process. You’re registered, you’re well equipped with study material, you’re ready.

5. Sh*t man, I can't do this.

I think I cried when I saw my first logic game. Like actually cried. This is the portion of the process where you’re about to throw up the white flag and fill out an application for Hooters. The “Sh*t man, I can't do this” thought is one that is quite reoccurring in my personal experience. Every time I get a practice question wrong or a method goes right over my head, I panic, real bad. And by panic I mean, question every motive I have to actually get into and complete law school and then, cry. Lots and lots of crying.

6. OK. It's fine.

Somehow you pull yourself out of the trenches and get your act together. This stuff isn’t impossible. You just have to work your ass off.

7. Murder me, this is gonna hurt real bad. But it's gonna be fine.

They say the LSAT is the test of your ability on skills that are essential to succeeding in law school and as a lawyer. Reading comprehension, logical reasoning, logic, blah blah blah. But honestly, I think this exam is more so a test of will and a test of character; especially if you’re not one of the rich kids whose families are loaded with lawyers.

This exam may be hard. But guess what? I’m harder.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
