    I started my tests & exams

    and I already feel so tired. But at the same time, the way I see it, it's like I'm trying to keep my passion alive. Sometimes this means studying 2.000 pages in one week 😅.

    Im just finishing my second year of law school.

    I compare myself to all the students around me and I feel like I'm not good enough or smart enough to be where I am today. The thought of finishing uni and starting a job terrifies me, I feel like I'm going to be lost and clueless as to what Id have to do.
