Today marks the first (real) day of Spring 2010. While some of us- for instance, yours truly- started on Monday, many law students begin the second part of their academic year on this beautiful, sunny, California day.
Hello Socal Winter!!!
Anyhoo, with the start of a new semester I can’t help but feel that pang of excited anticipation- which is quickly followed by semi truck collision of apprehension. As you might have heard, like, in the preceding post, I went to the Lady Gaga concert (I know, I won’t drop it). And I’ve decided my relationship with law school is one bad romance.
1. “I want your ugly, I want your disease...”
Law School Abuse: I used to feel like a superstar. Rejection for most incoming law students is really not their thing. No was never a word any of us heard a whole lot in our past lives. NOW: Rejection is the name of the law school game. Rejection NOW just means someone is better, TRY HARDER. It’s awful but I can hear the self doubt. Battered Law Student Syndrome, if you will!
2. “I want your drama, the touch of your hand...”
Law School = High School! Everyone knows it! From rumored make outs, to rumored stalking, rumored cheating I’ve heard people accused of all sorts of things. And I haven’t escaped it- trust you me!
3. “I want your love, I want your revenge...”
Obsession: Sometimes it seems I just can’t get enough. No matter what, I go back from more. I live a very involved law school life. I’m on SBA, Admissions Student Panels, I’m a Research Assistant. I live on campus- and yet I keep saying yes to Law School.
....You know that I want you, And you know that I need you, I want a bad, BAD ROMANCE....
Classmate: how was your break?
me: haha - yeah. my break was way too short
Classmate: ditto, im not ready
me: i dunno im started to get excited but ill probably feel really different in a week

Happy New Year!
Back to school, back to school
...and did I mention two days early?!
Anyhoo- it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. Finals ended with a bang and a pang of ‘shit that was harder than I expected.’ But, I made it through to my favorite event the END OF FINALS PARTY. The EOFP is one of the best events law school has to offer. Imagine hundreds of law students who have been sober for a month or more trying to let off some steam, forgetting that they have the alcohol tolerance of a toddler. This year was no different- except for my behavior. Exceptionally stellar.
Break passed quickly- a wedding, a LADY GAGA concert and cramming as much time with family and friends as possible.
And a new year means a new attitude.
This past year was all about learning. It was tough but it got better. And I want to remember that!
This new year is about staying present, positive and practical. Take things day by day.
Stay tuned for the ridiculousness of Spring 2010.
