ok, first off, I also can't wait for football season b/c I spent four years in Alabama at a a school without it. It's hard being surrounded by "Roll Tide" and "War Eagle" every saturday and not having a team to call my own. Secondly, having lived in Alabama for the last four years, Freebird is a song, a chant, and possibly a way of life, though Im not sure on the last one, Texastiger might be able to back me up. Finally, I like Moe's.

Just to clear a few things up...

Auburn > Alabama

Lynyrd Skynyrd's "way of life" song was "Simple Man", but "Freebird" is without a doubt their best offering.

And you'll be happy to know there are two Moe's in Lubbock as well.

Freebirds and Moe's > Chipolte

***More food talk***

Word on da streets is they're opening a second Freebirds in Lubbock at the location of the old Pinnochios Pizza right by the front entrance to campus.

Oh yeah....woot woot.

Also, any other fans of Jimmy Johns will be happy to know the first JJ's opened over the summer in Lubbock as well.

 ;D

Cody is awesome, he's a fellow ex Section 4er.

Actually last weekend I hung out with him and some other 2L's in central Texas.....had to take a "toob"ing trip :)

Cody's a trip though, you'll love him......easily one of the funniest guys in law school

Thanks guys. I'll have her look into 'em both, plus she's an Aggie so she might naturally be inclined to look at Sagewood when I relay the message about the manager. I know how cultish you Aggies are  ;D j/k...

Thanks everyone who commented on sushi, Texastiger, Id say just get on www.lubbockapartments.com It's really easy to navigate and you search for what sounds good. I ended with a house with a 2L and 3L so Im not sure about apartments. BTW I did my undergrad at Birmingham Southern, Ive raced at auburn many a time in the last 4 years.

Who are the 2L and 3L you're going to live with and what type of racing do/did you do?

There's also a 3L Auburn alum and we both make a habit of wearing AU apparel every chance we get. Pretty good contingent of folk from southern schools at Tech Law actually.

Market Street makes fresh sushi daily, no idea how good it is, but the two dudes are at least Japanese.










Now someone answer my question.  >:(

Had a question for all of you who just signed leases.........

Where are the good deals right now? Girlfriend is movin out to Lubbock and wants to get a two bedroom somewhere (or possibly just rent a house). Anyway, at this time last year I knew who was offering what, but now I'm clueless to help her find a deal.

Think she wants to live by herself but get an extra bedroom to use as an office, so nothing too expensive.

I'd haveta agree, there's plenty of time for sports if you manage your time properly. Saturday's in the fall were my day off when I didn't even touch a book. They were always exclusively reserved for college football.






And even if you don't like football or aren't a huge Red Raider fan (cough cough.....Aggies), try not to miss the law school tailgates during fball season.

They were a ton of fun even for those who didn't walk over to the game later; good food, plenty of cold beer, good eye candy (for both sexes), and for every game the university sets up a stage and has a Texas country singer come out to play for the students. It's good times. The only times I'd miss em was if my Tigers were playing at the same time.








Oh yeah, hopefully the basketball team will be better this year too.....  ::)

Tiger - congrats on the internship! now, the question we all want to know - paid/unpaid? How long is it for?

[/quote] awesome. is it with a court, or did you have prior contacts down there? [/quote]

I'll be down there for five weeks, and it's paid (though I doubt I'll get much more than enough to buy a couple new suits and a plane ticket). It's just a small firm that primarily deals wth real estate transactions and such, I think one of their clients is the Valley Airport that Southwest flies into. My dad and uncle have been workin down there for the past few years so they know the guys at the firm and told me to email em.

Speaking generally though, there's a ton of opportunities down in the valley because there's no law school anywhere nearby. Internships and clerkships in Lubbock or any of the big metro areas fill up quick and are very competitive, so if you want to find a job don't overlook the emails from career services about positions down in the valley or out in El Paso. I think last year a few of them had their deadlines extended because literally no one had applied for them.

I would say women, but thats just because I pay more attention to them.  ;D

You would know this because you stare at more girls between class in the forum than the rest of us guys combined  ;D

I love being an Aggie... :)

Sad, sad, brainwashed just like my sister...  ;D

And the Mavs win easy on what was overall a bad offensive night (aside from Jason).....gotta love it. Wish I could be at one of the games.  :(







In other news, I just scored an internship down in Harlingen for the second half of the summer, thus proving even those who make bad grades can find a job. Woohoo!!!
