I know it's been talked about a little bit, but wondering if anyone else is feeling any anxiety about this upcoming school year. Mine isn't overwhelming, but it occupies a good bit of my thoughts. Also, I'm reading 1L and I think that's making it worse
some of my concerns...
1. grades. i'm worried that i just won't get it. i know everyone feels this way, but to a certain extent i think i've let stuff like that stupid sander study get under my skin. i think this worry is especially hard on students of color - sometimes we can internalize all the isht about not being good enough without AA
2. will i socialize with people outside of my affinity affiliations. when in new situations, we all tend to seek out what is familiar and comfortable - and for me, that's Black people (and Asian people and other mixed people). Given that HLS has such a large concentration, I'm worried that I'll kick it with Black people to the exclusion of everyone else - which is what I did in undergrad b/c I had so many adjustment issues. I'm going to make a conscious effort to spread out my affiliations, but I don't wanna become one of those ppl that I didn't like in undergrad (a Black person who didn't speak to other Black people).
3. my roommate is a friend and will prob be a study partner, and i'm worried that we'll get sick of each other
Anyone else nervous? Current students feel free to weigh in.
