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."

Because wally should always be quoted for posterity.

That was beautiful.

Yes, yes it was.  I was moved by it.

I remember the days when he was a 0L prepping for the LSAT and blowing up the LSAT boards with questions and other stuff.  It has always been lots of fun interacting with him.

Wally, please put us in your memoirs!
