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.

Nealric.

I'm a little sad that nobody nominated me.  It must be because I am not open and notorious. 

Unbiased Observer would also be an excellent choice.  (And not just because of his name.)  


ahahaha

yes. wally, you're anonymous.

ok I'm bored. Entertain me.

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.
