Spring Fever

I have a bad case of spring fever. On the plus side, my mood has been lifted, but on the negative side, my focus has gone to $h!t. I have one day of class and one brief rewrite to complete before I’m officially on spring break (which basically means I officially have no class to interrupt the days of outlining and figuring out what’s been going on in Constitutional Law). It’s a beautiful day outside, and I have the sun shining down on me… from the window I’m next to in the library.

Alas, spring is in the air and I welcome it with open arms. The past few weeks have restored my faith in the belief that good things happen to good people. Things have really been on the up and up, and I am so glad that I’ve been able to achieve certain things without having to play into the law school game. I’ve been honest, truthful, and genuine since the start, all the while knowing that most people around me weren’t. Well, I think it has paid off. Perhaps, even in law school, nice guys don’t finish last.

Life is good. The sun is out, the air is crisp, and I feel lucky and blessed to be able to bask in the splendor that is the cusp of spring… even if it is from inside the library.

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag?

Thanks to [finally] watching the Valentine’s Day episode of Glee, I have a new favorite song. I’ve been listening to it every second I can. It’s totally uplifting, which a law student really needs. I may be late on this bandwagon, but I figured I’d share in case you’re not on board yet. Because haters, they gonna hate, and law school is full of them. {Also, I am so into the 80s dancing Katy breaks into at the end. Love. It.}

Boom boom boom. Even brighter than the moon moon moon.

Law School is a Funny Place

[This is a modified version of an email I sent to a friend a few minutes ago.]

My law school sells passes to law students who are living in the area and studying for the bar. I’ve noticed them in the library lately. Particularly, there’s been this one guy who is in my carrell all the time. Now, this is MY carrell. People who study in this area respect other people’s spots. I had to wake up many early mornings to ensure that this became MY carrell.

So yesterday, even though it was Saturday and NO ONE comes to the library early, I came at 9:15 (it opens at 9) to make sure that I was in my rightful place. The only reason I didn’t arrive at 9 is because I stopped at a store, which opens at 9, to get food for the day. So I walk into the 3rd flooor reading room, dead empty and quiet, as it always is at that time on a Saturday morning after the second week of school. I mosey on over to my carrell… AND HE IS SITTING THERE!! WTF! SO ANNOYED! I mean, I got the second best carrell, but it just didn’t do it for me. I like my view from MY carrell. To make matters worse, we were the only two people on the entire floor (perhaps the entire library!) for HOURS. He was the ONLY thing standing between me and my carrell.

So today, I know I have to get here before the library opens. And I do. I’m waiting outside the library. Who do I see approaching the building? None other than the carrell stealer. It’s 8:59. Then it’s 9:02. Then 9:04. I’m arguing with the security guards that it’s past 9 and the library should be open. It’s me standing in front of the doors, and the guy is right behind me. We’ve formed our own tw0-person line. It’s straight out of a Larry David script. We’re given the go ahead. Do I take the stairs? Do I take the elevator? I head towards the stairs. And I BOOK IT.

I’m in my carrell. I have my wonderful view.

I think I scared the guy. I don’t even think he’s in this room. He might recognize me as the only person who gets to the library as crazy early as he does and who always walks over to the carrell he’s sitting in.

But not today. Today, this carrell has returned to its rightful owner.

Success. Sweet success.

(GO JETS!)

I’m back

Well, it sure has been a while. But I’m back, and I’m planning on making it a regular thing.

In the last..err…year or so, there’s been a major development that’s taken over my life: I started law school. It’s just as bad as everyone says it is. But I have to admit, I do kind of like it. The whole competition aspect is no fun, and the grade mongers are wretched. I’m at the tail end of the most difficult finals period I’ve ever been through (and what will be the most difficult one of my law school career, I’ve been told), and I can just taste the freedom that is 30 hours away. That’s right, 30 hours. Tomorrow at 4pm, I will officially be done with first semester of my 1L year.

On that note, I should probably get back to torts. And don’t worry, this blog will not be law school-centric. Law school has taken over every aspect of my life, but I’ve no intentions of it taking over tickles fancy.
