it just might be the other way around.

being a vocab whore is necessary to having a good rc score?

Necessary but not sufficient.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: "NOT to do" list for the LSAT

My TO "BRING" LIST


-- TIMER
-- Extra Pencils
-- sweater in case it's cold, tank top underneathe incase i get hot
-- ID
-- Admissions Ticket
-- banana and granola bar for extra boost of energy during the 10min. break
-- my mind and everything i've learned about the LSATs

FWIW, Under Armour Cold Gear (the compression-fit style garment) helps me stay warm while deer hunting in cold weather--it wicks sweat away from my skin to the outside of the garment, thereby preventing that clammy/cold feeling during long sits on stand.  I figure it'll be useful during the test because I'll probably be sweating up a storm!  And sitting in what may be a cold room (according to my admission ticket) won't help matters.  

I may wear a ball cap, too, to keep my body heat from escaping--IIRC, 30% of the body's heat loss is through the head.

A little slice of leftover venison meatloaf, a dollop of smashed redskin potatoes, salad, water.  Then off to library for more LSAT studying.

The best part...top songs the year of my birth are some of my all time favs...(get ready, I'm a non-trad!)
My Sharona by The Knack   
Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? by Rod Stewart   
Hot Stuff by Donna Summer   
I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
Ring My Bell by Anita Ward

Uh, those songs were popular the year I graduated from high school.  Dang, I'm ready for AARP.   :o

For me, the aforementioned comforatble = nice house out away from the city with a good size yard and pool and sensible mortage, nice GM cars for me a SO, pets, nice clothes and the ocassion trip.

Granted, I'm in IN, so cost of living is cheap-ish, and I want no kids. Also I figure in SO's $60,000-ish wages.

I'm in Ohio (similar cost of living) and do all of the above on $80K with $35K from SO.  Well, no pool but a vacation/hunting cabin and 90 acres in SE Ohio as well as the primary residence.  Having my own wildlife sanctuary makes me rich.  ;-)

And also, I'm tired of being a grown up, and I want to go back to school for a few years.

Cheers,

Para

I'm glad someone else admitted this first.  Ah, the life of a poor, hard-working, macaroni-and-cheese eating student!   :D

I like "The Fireman" from George Strait... ;D

Yeah, they call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well everybody'd like to have what I got,
I can cool 'em down when their smolderin' hot.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

Last night we had a bad one a mile or two down the road,
Yeah my buddy walked out and left his woman burnin' outta control.
Well, I was down their in 'bout an hour or so,
With a little mouth to mouth she was ready to go.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

They call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well, everybody'd like to have what I got,
I can cool 'em down when their smolderin' hot.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

--- Instrumental ---

I got a fire engine red, T-Bird automobile,
In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill.
I work twenty four on and twenty four off,
If they get too hot they just give me a call.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

They call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well, everybody'd like to have what I got,

I'm the Fireman, that's my name.

They call me the fireman, that's my name...


This seems to be the theme song of every firefighter with whom I work.   ;)

If I had gone straight from undergrad to law school, I never would have...

...been appointed to my hometown fire department, become a firefighter/paramedic, saved a few lives, lost many more  :'( , learned about building construction to the depth that I have, discovered how many people live in squallor, finally realized that many don't care that they do, watched two teenage girls die after being hit by a train, learned to get drunk at nine in the morning the day after watching two teenage girls die after being hit by a train, helped close down a bar that covered for a drug operation, and learned what I am physically, mentally and emotionally capable of under extreme and dangerous conditions.

Yup, that about covers it.

The best sandwiches in the entire world....
Discuss.

Thick-sliced fried bologna sammich at Bud's Place, Sandusky, OH.  On rye bread (heavily buttered and grilled on the grease-stained griddle) with a huge slice of raw, sweet onion, melted swiss cheese and brown mustard.  Wavy potato chips, a deli dill pickle and a cold draft round out the meal.

That's real food.
