General Off-Topic Board / Re: MAS: Welcomes Our New Socialist Overlord

Wally here.

I thought that it would be nice to check in as a 3L.  Not knowing what else to say, I thought I would share two observations:

1) As utterly ridiculous as my neuroticism was (and I am embarrassed by it, in retrospect), it may have been warranted.  How ironic: every last anxiety-ridden bit of it has become something of conventional wisdom.  T6 still not a good idea at sticker?  Check.  Studying for daylight?  Check.  Not counting on any BigLaw position?  Ditto.

2) Ideally, life is long and full of surprises.  As cliche as it sounds, I hope that the last two years have made all of us more open-minded about what qualifies as our future.  When I was a few years younger, I was always stressed because I tried to will certain predetermined outcomes.  I would map out my future and then panic if anything went awry.  These days, I just focus on living.  Eating.  Enjoying whatever it is I do.  Miss one job, I hope I find another.  Not this girl, I hit on another.  "One doctor, one ecstasy, one illness, one woman, one man / May hide another.  Pause to let the first one pass . . . It can be important / To have waited at least a moment to see what was already there."


Because wally should always be quoted for posterity.

I feel like I'm senile or something. I don't remember who anyone is except bears.

It goes well. Worked at a great firm this summer and just started vacation as of Friday.

I haven't been here in forever.

Also, I hate legal research with no answers.

I'm working as a research assistant and generally haven't done poo this summer.  I have no shortage of spare time to shoot the breeze with former LSDers.

My situation exactly.

I don't want to do law school anymore. I want to go home and have fun again.

i'm goin on a date with a girl from a T4 tonight.  pretty excited about that.

Please update.

Also would welcome any other distractions that might serve as alternatives to researching this brief.

You're already doing briefs at your school?  We're still on memos.  I'm writing a boring memo on an obscure Illinois privacy tort.

our brief is on customer lists: are they trade secrets?
subject matter: the diamond-edge blade, saw and bore distribution industry
boring as anything.
