Word up, son.

LOL

Yeah, its hard to shake the east coast lingo when you're surrounded by it 24/7.  The cats in my class tell me that I have some kind of accent, although they can't put their finger on what kind of accent it is.  I said, funny, because ALL OF YOU sound like you have an east coast accent to me.  We have concluded that people like me from the midwest have a "lack of" an accent, which to people on the east coast, sounds different.  They don't know what it is, all they know is that its not from here.

Did I miss your into?  Who are you and what school are you attending this fall?



I know I've been gone for a minute, but I've been busy moving and settling in, exploring, and now, reading and doing school stuff with my roommates.  This, I think, is indicative of the probability that once school starts, I will probably take an LSD hiatus.  So sad.  I'll check in, but I dunno.  LSD was my escape from work, and now that I'm jobless, I don't have the time for it anymore.  We'll see.


Sands did a great job in teaching us how to brief a case.  People should pay him to do this. 

Anyway, good morning.  Enjoy the calm before the storm, pps.   :P

Hey everyone . . .

Sands, yes I am dropping sales on them. Don't forget contracts was my favorite class!!!!!   ;D ;) I've been looking at some outlines and it is similar to contracts, to some degree, at least the way it was taught in my section. At any rate, I answered a question and my response got a little longwinded, so typical of a future lawyer ;)

I agree . . .contracts is SOOOOOOOO important.  I had a couple of family members with contract issues this summer and I was able to answer their questions  . . .it was a little scary.  :-\ 

I did learn something in the chaos of last year . . . .lol.

Sales was a part of our K class, although I know it is its own class. In fact a lot of these 2L and 3L classes are spin-offs from the "Big 6."  Like Conflicts of Laws (another class tested heavily on the bar).  Conflicts of Laws is basically that chapter on the Erie Doctrine from Civ Pro.  So Erie Doctrine used to do the opening act for Civ Pro but now it made it big time, got a promoter, and has its own show called "Conflicts of Laws."

That's true. I can't wait to take conflict of laws . . . .

Okay, I'm officially a nerd.  :-\

I know right. Being from the midwest, I know a Southern accent when I hear one.  You know those true southern accents that you can only get from Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, etc.  At first, one of my classmates tried to tell me I had a southern accent. I said you obviously haven't been to the south.  Anything that doesn't sound like a NY accent is considered country (aka Southern).  NY'ers idea of going "west" is visiting Jersey.
