This week was my hell week.
I had three major exams, all of which were from the major bar subjects — so as expected, the mayhem kept me from sleeping the whole week long. My first major exam was from criminal law, where we were to pinpoint the elements of certain crimes, and make assessments as to what crimes have been committed and what-not (for example, consummated homicide, frustrated homicide, and attempted homicide).
The second exam that I took was a little more interesting for me, my political science undergraduate background notwithstanding. It was Constitutional Law, and we perused through several provisions in the Constitution and determined whether several governmental acts were unconstitutional or not. It felt good to assume the role of Supreme Court justices and strike down several acts which constituted Constitutional transgressions.
And then finally, my last exam was from Persons, a very interesting topic which deals with legal relations among people. This particular subject deals with how people ACTUALLY relate to each other, and how they OUGHT to deal with each other. It was a challenging exam, but at the end though, it was interesting just the same.
Naturally, after the entire week of being sleep deprived, I was the picture of trash personified. I had three pimples in my forehead area, I had dry skin, and my system zonked out all of a sudden. My brother, who is recently enamored with traditional sources for health and wellness, suggested that I try out dead sea minerals.
I was initially apprehensive at first because of the mental images that my mind had conjured at the mere mention of ‘dead sea’, but after much research though, I was able to find out that these minerals were actually proven to be quite helpful, and that they were sought after because of their awesome benefits. The dead sea, I also learned, is a rich repository of important elements and minerals such as zinc, magnesium, iodine, sulfur, potassium, and other stuff.
I just think it’s ironic that people refer to it as the ‘dead sea’, when clearly, it contains elements that enhance and nurture life. But in any case, I am seriously considering having these items, if only to make me better equipped to stand the pressure more, and sustain my fragile mind (and body) so it does not succumb to too much pressure and torment in the long run.
