I worked a real job for years before coming to LS. I'm a 1L. I have been sitting on my ass for 12 hours a day staring at a computer, in the same place, stopping only to eat and sleep for a week now, and will continue to do so for another three weeks.

You have no idea how much I miss being able to go home at 7 every day and not think about work until the next day. In 9 months I've watched three movies and read zero non las books. If I do something non law related, it is drinking or TLSing, because those don't require any use of my tired, tired brain.

Enjoy 0L while you can, because once you start law school then legal practice, you won't have a carefree moment inside your own head ever again.


do you not like it/do you regret it?


I enjoy it a lot, and don't regret it at all. Then again I'm used to sitting on my ass all day doing boring stuff (engineer), loved studying for/taking the LSAT, and am an alcoholic.

If you're that way, you'll probably like law school. If you're expecting intellectually stimulating material and freedom from being shackled to a computer all day...


God, I hope this is true. I fit the bolded to a damn T, minus the engineering part.


I fit the bolded to a T as well, minus the engineering and LSAT stuff.

Finally! Alcoholism is a benefit beyond settling for the beached whale at 2 a.m.

I'm excited to use my brain after two years of being a paralegal.

I'm also excited to move to a new place and start a new phase in my life.

I'm in Asia right now, was given less than 10 hours notice that I had to fly here for work, and now I'm sitting in a hotel room with nothing to do.

You know you know what you're getting yourself into if you're a paralegal. I kind of wish I had the opportunity to be one so I could be certain law school is the way to go.

rofl


rofl for sure. the bolded doesn't necessarily have a correlation with grades.


Well, hopefully I can add 'smartest' in with the other two, but regardless, I understand there is a certain randomness to grading and a certain "it" factor that some kids just have and others don't, but for all the factors that I actually have control over I fully plan on taking advantage of.

"I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people… There are times when I look at people and I see nothing worth liking… I see the worst in people. I don’t need to look past seeing them to get all I need. I’ve built my hatreds up over the years, little by little… I can’t keep doing this on my own with these… people."


There must be a visual!

Well you go to UVA and I go to Emory, so let's split the difference and battle it out on Duke's front lawn.

I'm freaking excited and nervous! I view this as a chance to finally go out and do all of the shit I didnt do the past 23 years of my life. Good baseball player, didnt really care about trying to get better. Good trombone player....really didnt care about that either. Good golfer....dont have the money to make myself any better. I feel that a fresh start is what I need, with something that I know I am passionate about (I mean why pain myself with the LSAT if I dont really want to do LS?). Not to mention finally getting to leave this shithole I currently reside in....BRING IT ON!!!!!! I am going to kick some ass!
