So...I'm old, and I have an exceedingly dumb question...where do you guys find all your animated responses or jpegs or whatever they are called? Google images? They are quite witty (at times), but I wouldn't even know where to begin to find such stuff...and yes, once I visited Tumblr, but I didn't understand it. Yes, I am this naive.

Also, different topic....I just found out that Ken DeLeon used to work at my firm...and he's the dude I see in real estate adds all the time in our local papers. I've practically touched a celebrity. He JUST changed his real estate ad picture--he has more hair now. Curly.

Dude, I'm young and consider myself internet saavy and I still don't know where they find that all that stuff that fast.

That's pretty cool about Ken! One of my cousins was giving me flak the other day about how when he applied to law schools he just had check his mail everyday and didn't have these fancy status checkers. I tend to think he had it better because he wouldn't have to neurotically check it 24/7.

Thank you, Wannabe. You just made me feel not that bad about being the least savvy tech person to work in corporate law in the Valley, ever. Gah. I don't even get bonus points when I meet with my app-developer clients for having an awesome android phone, because the apps they make are for apple only. Argh.

Actually--HERE goes your night. This is much, much more what it's really like. COMPLETELY hilarious. Cringeworthy. True. It's all here. This series is brilliant. Watch the episodes in order for full effect.

I debated about starting episode 1.....but ive learned the hard way that its a bad idea to start a TV series at 11 pm when you have to work in the morning. Ill wait til I'm at work to start watching this.

Thanks for the suggestion - I'm checking it out now.

I'm not sure what's more depressing: how unlikely it is I'll ever hit biglaw, or how miserable it is even if I do.

Hmm...

It came out during the downturn, so yes, everyone in biglaw was watching if they were hoarding the few billables they had at the time. Good stuff.

Wannabe--the episodes are like 10 minutes each. And so good.

We can only hope. If not, Cuse loses all credibility.

For the WUSTL financial aid information, does anyone have any idea where I would put a grant from the school I went to? It wasn't a loan and it wasn't paid for by my family, so there doesn't seem to be a place to include it.

C'mon JL come through for me.. As to your question, there wasn't a section for Scholarship/Grants? If not then I'd guess that it would go under "Other Loans and Resources"
