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.
