How Do You Distract Yourself...

Postby lawgirl99 » Tue Jan 05, 2010 3:18 pm

from the admissions cycle waiting game? (Asides from TLS, of course)

I don't think TLS really counts as a distraction from the waiting. If anything, its chosing to focus on the waiting game rather than distracting yourself from it.

I've learned there is no way to distract myself, so I come in TLS and compulse.

Haven't figured that one out yet. Was so desperate for new stuff that I briefly went to JDUnderground and XOXOhth at 2 am last night. Of course I left in fear and disgust very quickly.

Especially because my school doesn't start up until the 24th, and I have nothing else to do. Ugh.

To make a long story short. I dropped her off at the airport. She went to hawaii for a week, then and was on vacation for two more after that. The dude she met in hawaii picked her up at the airport. It pretty much all around sucks, and has, for better or worse, been a significant distraction. But thanks for the support! I knew my TLS buddies would care lol.

well, if you don't plan to try to get back together, selling any of her stuff that you have might make you feel a little better

Having a family is a very good thing during hurry-and-wait times. Kids dont give a crap about your OCD obsession with rankings, or acceptance letters, or status checker tools: they just want a snack dammnit!

So... if you dont have kids, arent about to give birth, and dont have siblings, borrow some rugrats from Walmart (borrowing is not the same as kidnapping).

Haha, I actually did that last year while I was waiting on my cycle. Just a random, non-credit class I took for my own amusement.

Endless hours of the Office (skipping over Andy Bernard's Cornell references). Just kidding, I don't distract myself, I just sit on TLS obsessing over law school allllllll freaking day.
