I will probably end up working at some lame place like Staples this summer before law school, making minimum wage.

Yeah?  Well I just sent my bank account numbers to someone in a country I've never heard of who contacted me by email and requested that info so they could deposit 10 million dollars into my account.  Once his deposit goes through, I can pay for like 100 LSDers to go to law school.

 :D

zone, my dear friend, i am having a problem completing this transaction.

i will need your social security number as well as the account numbers of your major credit cards to complete the wire transfer.

thank you,

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Are we sure that we find out on Friday?

They say to have low expectations, so I'm going to say that I'm expecting a 130 and for every 5 points that I get above that, my happiness(X) will multiply by a factor of 3. So, how much happiness will I have if I get a 160? Get to it.

yeah i think i can do it. it's worth the effort and sacrifice in my opinion, for them. we'll have plenty of years to have lots of time together after law school when we're living together.

i wonder why you asked if it was  my kid though? did you have a tip or something for how to make it easier for her to visit? i think her not having a car kinda eliminates any possibilities.

No, I was making sure it wasn't your kid because otherwise I would have commented that kid wins.  The kid might still win, depending on your relationship.  When it comes to all of the people with children in school, any type of spouse or SO gets put on the back burner.  Significantly.

what do you mean winning? the kid sleeps half the day and i like him a lot anyway. she does live with her fam and they do take care of the kid for her sometimes.

Win the battle for your time. 

ah gotcha. well when i visit she would definitely make a lot of time for me because she wouldn't be seeing me every day.

Have you looked into Amtrak or Greyhound? For both of you, it would mean you can get stuff done while you travel.

well i looked and roundtrip bus tickets are like $74.  It's an 150 mile trip each way so that's 300 miles roundtrip. I get about 28 mpg on the highway so I'd be spending $25 on gas if I drove it and 3 times as much if I took greyhound.

It would be cheaper me to drive her both ways but that would put a lot of miles on my car.

And you can only see each other 4-5 times a semester?!?

I've spent that long trying to go out in LA.

well i figured 15 weeks per semester and in fall you have fall break, thanksgiving, then winter break, then spring break, so that's 4 big breaks a year, and i figured 5-6 visits outside of the official breaks. I don't think I can really be going home every other weekend during the semester can I?

Certainly there are times when you need to be at school over the weekend, but I get out of the city frequently (and do work.  It isn't playtime or anything.) 

It seems very reasonable to me that getting in a car Friday night and coming back Sunday night would give you at least two nights with your SO.  Is every weekend a good idea, or reasonable?  No.  Are at least two weekends a month reasonable.  Yes.  Also, is anything preventing her from visiting you the other two weekends?  I mean, 2.5 hours is just so...close.

the 1 year old kid might be a problem. also she fact that she doesn't own a car.

it's not your child, right?

no it's not. i would have said my 1 year old if it was haha, or ours. but i can tell you that i wasn't dating her while that happened. shes a good girl. ;) and i do hope to adopt him one day and have him call me dad. that's what she wants.

mugatu, can i ask you this? do you think that it is possible for me to do enough studying during the week, like 7 hours a day or whatever, so that i'm able to come home every other weekend, not study at all on the at home weekends, and not worry about it affecting my grades?

thanks.
