  1. I am currently working as a Job Order employee at the Prosecutor's Office in our province. Our Administrative Officer and my mother (who is also working as Senior Admin Assistant in the office) suggesting me & tried to convince me to take up law school since I have few backgrounds w/ how the cases are filed . what Im scared of is the recitation, the readings, too many thick books, lack of sleep (especially that I always have insomia), 1 hour travel from our town & the expectations. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

  2. Ho tonie..I am 41 years old and still planning to take law do you think im a bit old to pursue my dreams? Just that I'm really inspired of all your videos knowing that your a working student..

  3. I love how you relay everything here! It's so far from the usual rigor stories most of us hear from other law students. It's not that you are romanticizing it; you just give more "realistic" suggestions under the considerations and limitations of us being human. I found another vlogger to binge-watch to!

  4. Hello miss also a working student..teacher po ako and currently 2nd year law student..napakahirap talaga i.balance ang work at studies. But watching your vlogs gives me more motivation to continue.

  5. Its sad that I watched this video a little bit late but thank you so much! I'm still torn with thinking if I should pursue law when the time comes but I hope to see you on court Ate! Love you:)

  6. I'm currently a government legal researcher. I graduated with a degree in Political Science in 2019 upto present. I'm planning to enroll this sem and I'll be taking evening classes. I'm more worried about the expenses and mixing work and studying. Problema working sa government is they oftentimes call you and ask to read a lot even after office hours and weekends. I hope I get it all together.

  7. It was really hard surviving the sem with Prosec. I admire you for being a working student while studying for her class. ๐Ÿ’ฏ Keep it up!! Having to transfer from non-working block to a working block was also a challenge for me. I can relate on how lonely it can be at times but there are skills which you gain in the process. โค๏ธ Looking forward to your โ€œgraduationโ€ and โ€œI passed the barโ€ vlogs. I know you can do both!! ๐Ÿค—

  8. I've been watching a lot of vlogs about working law student and this one is one of my favorite and recommended, it so nice. ๐Ÿ˜‡ It's almost complete and even I don't know what's lacking.๐Ÿ˜… Definitely so helpful po

  9. I want to take BS Architecture. Then enter law school after. Hahha but the thing is after you graduate Arki you need to do apprenticeship for 2 years before you can take a board exam. So pano kaya yun hahaha gulo ba. Doing apprenticeship while studying in law school is it possible.?

  10. Another pro of online jobs: minsan mas mataas pa sweldo compared sa starting salary ng regular jobs. Planning to go to law school soon (and still work) pero di ako decided if I should stick to an online job or go with a job na related sa undergrad ko. Been doing online job/s since college up to now na reviewee ako and mas marami talagang pros lalo na if student ka. Thank you for your insight! ๐Ÿ™‚ Pero pwede bang mag working section if online job mo? Madalas kasi walang contract or ano naging jobs ko tapos kailangan magpresent ng documents sa school para proof na working diba?

  11. Also a working law student here! And a content writer as well hihi. Would love to know how you study on your ipad kasi ako rin I'm interested in buying one, tho di ko pa sure talaga either to get a new laptop or ipad/tablet but yeah yun lang aliw ako sa vlog na to โœจโ˜บ๏ธ

  12. Great tips, Tonie! Very important โ€˜yung rest for me. I take naps at the office during lunch after I eat. And pag puyat, coffee lang talaga ang katapat. Keep it up, Mare. ๐Ÿคฃ Here to support your vlogs!

  13. Yes to that 'how i study w my ipad' vid pls! Been struggling to go paperless since I'm used to reading from books + printouts but the volume of things that need to be studied is wasteful ๐Ÿ˜ฉ (also kudos for being part of the rare breed of law students who acknowledge sleep as a necessity ๐Ÿ˜‚)
