Life of the rich and famous, not all that it's cracked up to be and, therefore, law school to save the world.

I've already done what I do now for 17 years (and I'm only 32). I've accepted that working sucks; I'd just like to be paid better for my boredom.

My folks wanted me to go to med school, so I wrote a book to get out of studying for the mcat, and hope to get it published before law school.

Well, I just got a job at a fashion magazine as the assitant to the editor. It’s a dream come true. I know I don’t have the looks to fit in, but I decided to stick it out. I'll do whatever it takes to fulfill my dreams.

That story was famously written by Hemingway when he was asked to tell a story in six words. There are some contests for writers that feature the same rules, I'm too lazy to find them right now.

Note, that doesn't mean the story isn't true in the PS. And it is a sad one.

I grew up in the middle east on a poppy plantation. At the age of 12 I left my wife and kids for a life in the new world.

This is compelling :D

Its fun to speculate who is serious, who is semi serious, and who is totally bullshitting.

Instructors make utter shit here, barely enough to cover the gas from Portland. And I don't smoke nearly enough (any) pot to fit in. :P

I've thought about doing ski patrol for funsies, but the time commitment for the training is huge.

Professors ask me to write them letters of recommendation.

If i went to Thomas M. Cooley Law School, they'd be ranked #1 next cycle.

I am the only person in the world that speaks English with a law accent.

My vote would count even if i lived in DC.
