Much has been written on the meaning of the holidays. Thanksgiving is easy; it’s right there in the name, and it’s a secular holiday. Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa on the other hand… Is it the particular religious/spiritual underpinnings of each? Or something more universal? Spending time with friends and family? And what about the New Year? Is it looking back on the year that just ended, in order to learn its lessons? Is it celebrating a (fairly arbitrary) fresh start?
The New Year is upon us, and, while you should definitely party your brains out tonight (then recover your brains out tomorrow), now is a good time to think about studying for the February LSAT. In addition to resolving to lose weight, finish that novel, hike Everest, and prepare for the zombie apocalypse, here are five resolutions you must make to get a great score on February 7th.
1. Do away with distractions and unnecessary responsibilities.
Everyone wants a slice of your precious time and none of them understand what it’s like to study for the LSAT. Mom wants your help making pot roast and your friend has a place in Cabo this weekend and that damn novel certainly isn’t going to write itself (dammit!). Well, too bad.
