My definition of "capitalize" involves traveling, which costs at least some money no matter what, and my definition of "saving money" is staying home so I'm not paying rent for nothing and spending money only on essentials.

Congrats Murdock! I think our offer day is today. We'll see how goes!

I'm sticking around Chicago enjoying the singular benefit of the quarter system: chillin 'til late September.

Two weeks "vacation" means independent research project, finishing up a paper for summer classes, and writing as many cover letters as possible. Shitty, but not as shitty as 2L (yet).

2 weeks working a part-time job, friend visiting for a week, and then spent a small chunk to take a cruise with SO after that. I'm pretty comfortable with what I saved, but know it'll drop some between now and bar trip.

Mind sharing roughly how much that was?

This thread has fallen from the main page like way too many times; I'd like to vote for daily check-ins given that 3L is soon to be upon us and none of us have any excuse to be too busy (itfr what happened?)

Here is my contribution for the day: halfway through the summer I told a tailor that I wore a 34 in pants. She fucking literally lol'd and handed me a 40, and they fit really well

Unrelatedly I'm trying out exercise again

Story of my current sad overweight existence except I believed until recently that my pant size was 36 because I am not *that* delusional

As to what I'm doing once I'm finally done (don't work 12 weeks over the summer people it is not worth it): vacation for a week, then getting the journal in shape for the upcoming year and being high on painkillers due to my wisdom teeth getting pulled

Damn it hikko takin it to the next level, have you correlated savings to test scores yet? I'm a terrible data point for that exercise btw

Not sure we know enough to say you're a terrible data point, assuming a terrible data point is one that defies the correlation. One could argue that smarter people have greater confidence in their future income stream and so feel less compelled to save.
