Law School IS HARD!!!!!!

My boy Homer posted on his site a while back that law school perhaps wasn't hard because he was able to build a small house of cards. I'm here to completely rebuff the implication that law school is easy. Here is a typical day in the life of an ordinary law student....

I go to class and quickly whip out my laptop and wireless internet card so I can authenticate my way onto the crazy world known as the world wide web. Next I proceed to spend 3 hours everyday being talked at from a panel of teachers who are generally nice but often times boring. Now I don't know about you but to me it's hard to waste 3 hours everyday on the internet while in class. I mean there is only so much funny stuff, sports stuff or porn one can look at once. A few of my friends and I have even began a chatroom of people in our class and after a while even THAT gets quiet. To make matters worse, one has to remember to look up once in a while and make eye contact so that the teachers don't realize that you are actually looking up things that are inappropriate for you to be looking at during class.

I had to the unfortunate luck to be called on Tuesday while knee deep in some hard core trash talking online with some friends. I was seriously lucky to have even heard my name I was so tuned out. Once he repeated the question I had no idea what to say. Normally I can lie and just make up shit but I couldn't even do that I was so out of it. I simply uttered a faint, "I'm not sure," and went back to chatting knowing that I made a fool of myself. After realizing that I looked like an idiot I tried to redeem myself by raising my hand and asking a question related to what he was talking about only to have the teacher tell me well that's exactly what Dan (the guy that sits right next to me) just asked. See law school is not easy by any stretch of the imagination.

I once had to stop in the middle of my sentence in civ pro and ask the prof what I had been talking about because my mind had wandered off in another direction. Anyway, I like your blog - very amusing.
