I feel as if my last 5 or 6 straight entries have been predicated on the fact that it had been a long period of time since the preceding entry. This is not one of those entries. I must acknowledge that it has been a couple of weeks, but not for lacking of time in which to write. To be honest, law school does provide one with more time than your overworked lawyer uncle, underappreciated law school advisor, or overly stress inducing pre-law professor would have you think. To be honest, life hasn’t really changed all that much, it has just changed entirely.
I wake up earlier, I actually eat breakfast (yes I know, I was a bit confused about that early meal people kept talking about, surprisingly just about everything on toast is delicious). After those two events that were non-existent in my previous life (yes, I believe in reincarnation as I died on August 18th and was reincarnated as an overworked and underappreciated law student). I have since spent entirely too much of my entirely too slim budget on coffee during the day and beer at night. Actually, that carried over from undergraduate life.
Otherwise, I spend my time in a single building between the hours of 8am and 5pm and take a bit of work home every night. This used to be tedious work. I was not really sure what anyone was looking for and I certainly was not sure what I was getting out of all of this. That has since changed. Cases read like Harry Potter books and when you can find a bit of humor in a case about burglary and attempted rape (even if you know nothing about the law, you should still look up Regina v. Curran, its like a Dane Cook story, only funny).
I have found myself neglecting all of my friends from home, of which I am not even sure I have anymore. I have found scarce time for my good friends from BU and I do not see much of a reprieve in the near future. Family, well they have been neglected as well. Surprisingly, people don’t seem to mind so much, a sense of pride or other seems to placate any ill feelings and everyone is generally interested in what it is like and how I am getting along (I have learned to keep law school stories to a minimum as the things we find funny/interesting are certainly not the things that real humans do).
I would like to say that I will be more active on this blog in the near future but as you and I both know that is not going to happen. We will see. R.I.P. Ziggy.
