I'm taking a break from studying family law right now. As much as I want to be engrossed in the topic, my mind has been drifting. It's not just family law, mind you - it's the same with all my classes. I'll read, and it's gone as soon as my eyes see the next word. I sometimes think I should stop with the charade and yield to my brain, which wants to spend time thinking about anything else.
But I can't. I have to learn about SAPCRs, and when a child can be interviewed in the judge's chambers without the parents there. I need to learn about JMC, SMC, Temporary Orders, Limited spousal support, caps on child support, protective orders, marriage requirements, common law marriage (fortunately, there's no such thing as common law divorce), annulments, majority, emancipation, etc. etc. etc.
This has been a long semester so far. And it's coming to an end far too quickly.
