Can I just say I am so happy that all of my applications are finished and have been sent?! When I signed up for the LSAT class last June, I didn't know that a crazy adventure awaited me. The hardest part is over (for now) and I can finally sit back and relax, and enjoy this little waiting game. I'm honestly not expecting to hear a peep until April and I find that this will ease my nerves if I keep my expectations low. I should also probably do all the things I love now since I most likely will not have time in the next 3-4 years.
I spent $188 on 2 applications since I could not get fee waivers for them. It sucks because I had to show my income and my monthly expenses, and as you know I do not pay rent and I had too much savings. I wanted to tell them that the savings would be gone soon due to buying real estate but I didn't bother. So I coughed up $188 and decided to just let it be.
Onto my next question, do you guys plan out rewards for yourselves if you reach a milestone?
2 years ago I told myself that if I took the LSAT I would buy myself a designer wallet, because I never had one (and I still don't). I also told myself that if I got into law school, I'd buy myself a designer purse. Obviously it didn't motivate me that much since I didn't do anything about reaching these goals 2 years ago.
Now that I have finished one goal and am onto the next, I really don't know if I want to reward myself with something materialistic. Yet, I think that I should remember these moments somehow. If I put money into a savings account, it would be a normal thing for me. I was thinking that I should invest in some great running gear to get back into working out. I've been going to the gym everyday this week and I've been feeling great. I also don't want to spend a lot since I already spent so much on these applications.
Do you have any suggestions for me? Thanks all!
