I don’t know how to respond when people ask me what I do outside of law school
Like, there’s an outside??
Just another Lawblr. Coming to you all the way from New Zealand.
Some SERIOUS brain food going on here…!
It pisses me off when westlaw times out. Fuck you Westlaw! Don’t you understand that I am 50 other tabs open in multiple other databases? Be considerate!!
I’ve noticed that this year’s 1Ls dont really drink that much. Or go out. Or just have fun in general. Sure there are a couple that go out and party but the majority are so super afraid of failing that they just study all the time.
Last year people in my class were sneaking alcohol into the lawbrary & going out every Thursday night and weekend.
The 1Ls at my school are super keeners too; it freaks the rest of us out.
It’s for reals unnerving. My class is wondering if there’s something wrong with us or them. The current 3L class is a nice mix of it all, but last years 3Ls were all about going out and drinking. I’m maintaining that there’s something wrong with the 1Ls. Studying all day and night, every day and night, leads to insanity.
Agreed. Our 3Ls are the “party our faces off for 3/4 of the year, and pound the pavement for the 1/4 that we need to” type. We (2L’s) are a nice mix. But the 1L’s are batshit crazy. And it’s not just that they don’t come out; it’s that they’re super keeners in class, to the point that even the profs are talking…
But, agreed. All work and no play make law students lose their shit.
