My Summer Schedule

Our spring quarter is only 8 weeks long and I have NO idea how the professors are going to cram a full class into something so short, but I do know they will try, and we will suffer. Anyway, our last day of class is May 18th and after an entire weekend free to study, finals start on the 21st. I'll have one on the 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. And then the summer madness begins:
  • May 24: take last final from 2-5pm, hop in car with JP and all my suitcases previously packed for 5 weeks in Texas, and begin the 17 hour drive down south
  • May 25: continue the drive, must get to Houston before baby brother's high school graduation begins at 8:30pm
  • May 27: move into wherever I'm living in Austin, JP flies back to Chicago
  • May 29: start work at The Firm
  • June 2: mom and I host bridal shower for family friend in Houston
  • June 8-10: The Firm hosts "All Clerk Weekend" in Austin, JP gets flown down for the occasion
  • June 16-17: different friend's wedding in Austin, I'm a 7.5 months pregnant bridesmaid, JP will fly down again
  • June 23: my baby shower in Houston (hosted by the previously mentioned family friend's mom) and JP will be supervising our across town Chicago move
  • June 30: JP flies down and we drive back up to Chicago where I am certain to be greeted with a huge disaster of boxes and furniture in our new apartment
  • July 2: I start work at Chicago firm
  • July 7: my family are all visiting (odds that we will be totally moved in and ready for visitors a week after we've moved and 5 days after I've returned to Chicago = very slim)
  • July 14: first free weekend! time to prepare the apartment for the baby
  • 3-4 weeks later: baby makes its big debut

Does this seem a little insane? At least the third trimester will go by really quickly...


  1. I've been enjoying your blog. I'm a pregnant 2L and will be a summer associate this summer too. Have you started buying maternity suits? Also, are you worried about how attorneys you meet this summer will think of you as a pregnant woman?

  2. Just to clarify - I mean: are you worried that attorneys will perceive you as not as serious as everyone else about your job because you're pregnant? I don't think this will be a major problem, but I can't help but wonder.

  3. omg. I'm exhausted just reading about it.
