Decided to read some E&Es for the classes I'm taking in the spring and just got done with Admin Law last night and am planning on moving on to Fed Tax.
What are you guys possibly doing with so much free time on your hands now?
A partner told me once that being a successful lawyer doesn't really depend on being a good attorney. This was an amazing statement that, when one thinks about it, makes crazy sense. It comes down to people liking you and wanting to work with you. I see it all the time. You can be the smartest guy in the room, but clients hire people they like. The rainmakers make it rain while leveraging the time of the smarter attorneys.
So GO OUT. Be social. We're all kidding you - but seriously, go have a drink with a friend. Maybe consider trying to get laid / develop a romantic relationship. Kissing is fun. So is drinking. Sometimes both are fun at the same time. Sometimes both are terrible in their own ways. Get yourself a crazy story. You will not have this much free time again in your life (probably).
Playing video games is a good Plan B if you're set in the romance department. Dragon Age: Inquisition is pretty good (Origins was better).
Don't think about lawschool until classes begin again.
