FYI u need to post more

Dude, I know I feel so left out when I get to work in the morning and there is 6-29 pages to read through (and I read through each post!). But here is my schedule:

6:00 AM: wake up, shave, shower, get dressed, etc.
6:50 AM: turn on the news/SportsCenter
6:51 AM: start breakfast (just became a vegan, so cooking has become a bit more time consuming/challenging)
7:30 AM: Leave for work.
7:40 AM: start work
12:00 PM: get off work, eat lunch
12:30 PM: study for the LSAT
5:00 PM: Leave for home
5:08 PM: Arrive home
5:15 PM: play with my kids, help my wife with dinner, clean the house, start laundry, bath time, jammie time, etc.
8:30 PM: child #1 goes to bed
8:45 PM: after the house is clean we watch, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, The West Wing, something on the Food Network (Cut Throat Kitchen, Chopped, etc.), or a sporting event
10:30 PM: maybe do a few LG's or a LR section if I am not completely drained
11:15 PM: go to bed
11:45 PM: my wife joins me in bed if child #2 will let her

Well that turned out to be far more detailed than I originally intended. But that's why I only poast, in the morning/early afternoons. That's why we need a TLS reunion.


How old are your kids, Toby? Also, do you have Veganomicon? I'm not vegan, but I've learned a lot about cooking from that book. It's wonderful.

We don't have it, but will definitely check it out. We're pretty new to this and we both come from farming ancestry, so our folks and grandparents were just meat and potato eaters.

PM'd about the kids -- they're going in my PS so I will try to remain somewhat anonymous.

Yeah Kant (and Hegel) were all up in my husband's thesis and I edited it. Fucking german philosophers, ruining my free time.

A mix of a few reasons, I have eaten pretty unhealthily for a lot of years and it was time to make a lifestyle change. My wife is in great shape (like 5'3" 120 lbs. after having two kids and her biggest health concern right now is that she can't see her 6-pack anymore) and enjoys running, more intense hiking, and other stuff of that nature that I have no desire to do because of my fat-ness. And I really want to do those things with her. I don't want to be the guy who dies on his family at like 55 y/o because I didn't have the self control to eat right and exercise. Moreover, the lack of ethical treatment to animals is the other major contributing factor. Now, I am not a preachy judg-y vegan that will piss in your cheerios because I feel superior, for I don't. And I still crave meat so hard and wish I could have a fatty serving of chicken fettuccine Alfredo.

If it weren't for my ethical concerns I would have more than likely adopted a lean meat diet and exercise, but I just felt like "going all in" on this. Because I let myself get to the point that I am now (which as I go back and read this makes me sound like one of those people who can't get out of their beds, and that is definitely not me) a drastic change was necessary.

TL;DR I am fat and I love animals.


Go Toby! I was vegan at one point for about a year or so. Then I remembered how much I love cheese. And eggs. And butter.


Yeah I still crave those things so bad. And I literally come from a family that is not too far removed from dairy farmers (grandparents), so it is in the fibers of my being to love all of those things.

im genuinely curious about t20 in the english MA world. is there really a thing as "t(insert # here)" outside of law schools is there bigEnglish?


Hahaha. There is BigEnglish. It is better known as tenure at an Ivy.

But, no. We definitely didn't refer to schools by rank. Different programs have stronger areas of study than others, so the perceived prestige of your program is dependent on your speciality. Also, you are judged primarily on the work you produce. Research holds most significance. Someone who has been published and has presented at conferences but attends a lower-ranked school will likely receive more respect than someone who attended a higher-ranked program, but didn't publish or present.
