Week round-up

Happily, my class-week is done. Of course, there are a million things that need to be looked into/get done over the weekend, but the silver lining is that i dont need to get changed into something respectable for the outside world to do these things. Neither do i have to shower. That would be funny, if it weren't true.

I'm glad to note that my contract was done by noon, and after drafting a few more versions of the same, it was sent out to a very happy and grateful client. From the looks of it, I can make that draft contract the original one and be doen with that client file. Which leaves me with just one more client to work on for the rest of the semester. Suffice it to say, I am very happy about that.

My clinical for Charitable Organisations also conducted a seminar on how to start your own non-profit org last evening. It was a smashing success. We had a great turnout and people were *actually* interested in listening to what we had to say. The seminar was conducted by us students, me and seven others, and it was very satisfying to be able to deploy and impart the knowledge we had squirrelled away the last 2-3 years in law school. Finally, I don't feel like law school has been a total waste of resources. I think more such opportunities should be provided to bridge the gap between academia and the real world. Of course, if law school were just two years instead of the money-sucking three, the disconnect wouldn't be that obvious. But since capitalism in America is rife, we get to enjoy three blissful years of borderline poverty and beyond-the-thershold misery.

Something funny happened during my Trial Ad class the other day. See, when I went to Wildwood, NJ in summer, I was strolling along the boardwalk, chomping down funnel cakes and other unhealthy eats. I came across this T-shirt store that manufactured personalised tees. Obviously, that demanded immediate attention and I went in to explore that world and emerged with a tee that had the Starbucks logo, but within the circle of that logo, it also had the words "consumer whore". Classy, no? So I wore it the day I had my Trial Ad class, mostly because I hadn't done laundry in a few weeks. So I stand up to cross the witness for impeachment purposes, and the witness seems to be err... distracted. By that time I had forgotten what I was wearing, so I was a bit fazed and ordered her to pay attention to my questions, when she bursts out and says "I'm trying to, but it's a bit hard not to read your tee when it says 'Consumer Whore'!!" Embarrassing.

Alcohol

I swear I didn't know my way around this quiz, but it's more or less accurate in its reading!








Bourbon
Congratulations! You're 109 proof, with specific scores in beer (40) , wine (83), and liquor (69).
Screw all that namby-pamby chick stuff, you're going straight for the bottle and a shot glass! It'll take more than a few shots of Wild Turkey or 99 Bananas before you start seeing pink elephants. You know how to handle your alcohol, and yourself at parties.







My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:



















You scored higher than 21% on proof





You scored higher than 84% on beer index





You scored higher than 88% on wine index





You scored higher than 87% on liquor index

Relief

I managed to draft the contract by noon. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Sweet relief. Prof thought I did a "great job overall", but of course, had some comments. I incorporated them and sent it back to her. Which means it's now time for me to put my feet up and relax. Oh sorry, I meant to say, "... time to prepare for Trial Ad". One down. A gazillion to go. Still a cause for celebration, 'innit?

My Presssssuresssss

I have a draft contract to give birth to in the next 1.5 hours. I'm not even pregnant yet. In fact, I'm not even sure there's been the right chemical fluid interaction yet. Go me!

This whole process of law school sucks. I love the law. I love the intellectual stimulation I derive from it. I love learning about the myriad ways judges pull wool over an entire society, making them believe that their reasons supported their coonclusions and not the other way around (is it "around" or "round" here??). I love learning about the political process that in turn shapes the law. But what I don't love, is the drudgery of exams, the steadier-than-the-Olympic-flame flame in your belly burning bright for your quest to find jobs, and then pandering to all and sundry for both the exams and the jobs.

That's not hott.
