This is Thanksgiving weekend. I am spending it studying. Seriously. Yesterday was all contracts, all day, and that is one of my better courses. Today I’m working on CivPro and plan on doing some Crim too.
But I take breaks. C and I did go for a walk in LaJolla yesterday and then stopped in at a neighbor’s for a party (me only briefly–C stayed longer). Still, my life and dreams are filled with thoughts of coursework, readings, and (most annoyingly) issue spotting. This, luckily, seems to be a normal thing, though. There is a group on Facebook that has posted “You know you are in law school if…” comments and they pretty much all apply to me. Here are a couple of my favorites:
- You can’t remember if you decided to come to law school because you wanted to help people and make a difference in the world or because you hate yourself.
- You think whoever first introduced the Socratic method into the law school curriculum should have his face lit on fire and then beaten out with a rake.
- You can’t think of any legitimate reason why a law student would need access to certain public records, but you can think of a whole lot of illegitimate ones.
- When someone is expressing their frustration or anger about something that is in any way related to the law, you can’t be sympathetic because you’re too busy figuring out in your head if they have a cause of action.
The last one is particularly true. I think I am becoming loathsome company.
