Happy Tuesday, Ya'll!

Lookie at the pretty library from my undergrad!
if only it was there when I was a student!!!

Do all my posts deal with my experiences in the library? Well, yeah, they kinda do!

But that will not stop me...

Today I reflect on the differences between undergrad library-ing and law school library-ing.

#1- Purpose...
In undergrad, around finals time the library was the place to be seen! Everyone went to the library to PRETEND they were stressed out. It was exactly what the gym was like the two weeks before spring break...loud and crowded with the beautiful people. ugh.

In law school, the library is most students' home for 3 weeks. As I look around me I see people with 3 (empty) coffee cups, lunch backs, scarves, and a plethora of reading material. No joke people.

#2- Productivity Level...
In undergrad as you probably gathered, people didn't get anything done in the library. Me, being the serious (ha) student that I was (am?) never spent a whole lot of time in there. (Instead I parked it in front of my TV with the DVR going non-stop....yeah my roommates were not impressed either!)

In law school it is hit or miss. Some people are super serious and actually drink their numerous lattes (read: above). Others are just here updating their facebook statuses.

or maybe just updating their blogs

#3- Library Attire
In undergrad people looked so snazzy. Maybe it's because I went to school in LA where literally everyone wore their hair in a 'pouf' and had their sorority tees and skinny little stems in leggings and UGG boots, but that was my reality.

In law school people take the whole sloppy student thing VERY seriously. Hair in a haphazard pony and if you're lucky, you might see a few people that actually look like they got dressed while it was light out. There are a handful of people who do get dressed...bless them.

Anyways, this is my thought of the day. Back to the Rules of Evidence
(who cares about the Common Law rules, really?!)

update: there is a student who has a plug-in Christmas tree attached to her Mac PRO. It even changes colors...ummm...someone is looking forward to the end of finals!!! (11/30/09)
