Still idealistic after all these weeks
One of my classmates sent this to me. It's pretty amusing, but a little darker than my experience so far.
Some of it spot-on. I definitely relate to the legal-concepts-pervading-my-dreams thing. (I actually woke up one morning this weekend with "fee simple determinable" and "fee simple subject to condition subsequent" going at it like Godzilla and Mothra in my head.) But I'm nowhere near as jaded as that dude.
The material is hard, the reading relentless, and any vestige of a social life has been reduced to an abstraction. But, honestly? I'm loving it. In fact, going into my fifth week, I don't think a day has gone by without my having had the following thought: "Holy shit, I'm in law school. How cool is that?"
