High Ho, High Ho…It’s Off to Work I Go!
ORIGINALLY POSTED 8/10/11–If the summer is a preview of how fast my last year of law school will progress, I’m in for a crazy ride. School starts next week. I’m excited and sad and scared and anxious all at once. With 4L looming all I can see is almost exactly 12 months ahead of me where there will be nothing but work. In fact, “work” may be my new mantra….school WORK, netWORK, bar WORK, find WORK—in that order.
I’m already behind because my summer to-do list remains unfinished: I have to fill out my 3L bar card application and complete my bar exam application. The latter isn’t due until November at the earliest, but I don’t want this paperwork hanging over my head so close to finals. I may still get it done. Looking at my calendar it appears I have approximately 2 hours and 38.5 minutes available on Saturday night between 10 p.m. and 1:38 a.m. Ha ha…I’m kidding! Sort of.
In other news: I got a new laptop. My old one was running XP and I didn’t want to risk trying to (eventually) load the bar exam software on such an old operating system. So far I like it except that it’s like moving into a new home and nothing feels right until you get it personalized. This has taken up lots of time the last few days, but again, better to mess with it now than next week when my laptop and I will be back in business.
