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
