wow all we need is my mentor stotan and wallace stevens

How do you know who they are?

I remember them because I'm MrLinderman. I was a cycle behind them but i joined their threads towards their departure. I even used to be friends with stotan on fb, so there!

Things are going pretty well. Doing some nice fed. gov't work this summer and trying to find a job for next year. I don't mean to sound like a depressed bears, but it's amazing how different this profession is today when compared to the time when we were all applying to schools 3 years ago.

Wow, I actually recognize some people after coming back on here!  I hope all of you are doing well.  And I agree; it's really a shame how vastly different the state of the legal economy is today.

LinkedIn just put Former Poster in that "people you may know" box.  Completely out of nowhere.  Never looked him up or anything.  No connections in common.

The Internet frightens me.

just some guy

Yeah, that happened to me with an attorney in California that I worked on a matter with a while back. It's one of those "six degrees of separation" things.  Wow. all of you MAS kids are 3Ls now. Hope the whole getting a job thing is working out for everyone.

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."
