The Final Push

              To combat my inclination to mentally check out I searched for some inspirational quotes and started putting them where I’d see them on a daily basis

Y’all I have a little over a month until graduation.

41 days to be exact (but who’s counting)! As graduation get closer and closer, I’m finding it harder and harder to maintain my motivation. I feel so close, yet so far away from the end of my law school education. To combat my inclination to mentally check out I searched for some inspirational quotes and started putting them where I’d see them on a daily basis. One in my planner? Check. One on the mirror? Check. One as my phone background and one as my computer background? Check and check.

So far, the quotes have given me the extra oomph I need to keep working hard, stay on top of my reading, and show up for class. I figured I’d share some of my favorites in case any of my fellow 3Ls need a little push to finish the year strong!
