Big Pimpin

Yes this title is purposely misleading. So I was going out on a run last night. I am going down this one street and I see these two girls get out of this car. They are very good looking. I thought I was looking good, even though all you could see of me was my eyes because it was 2 degrees outside. Anyways I was running past them and one of the girls and I had our eyes meet. So I gave her a little wink and a smile thinking I was just the suavest thing ever to come to New York. Not five steps up I had to take a left to go down to the Promenade. So I was concentrating on everything except running at this point. Next thing I know I have forgotten about how the sidewalk isn't even and my right foot apparently forgot also So my foot catches and I go down. It wasn't your normal falling down either. No I was so oblivious that I hit the ground rolling. I am talking like head to toe straight up and down rolling. I came to an abrupt stop. It didn't take me long to realize that the snow piles that are about 4 feet tall that gather between the cars and the sidewalk, which are the grossest piles of snow ever, had stopped my rolling. With IPod earphones in and music blaring I could still hear the girls laughing. So my ego took a little bit of a blow and I quickly got up and continued running. I am hoping maybe i'll run into the girl later and we can have a good laugh and obviously she will want me because I am able to laugh at myself. yeah i'll just keep telling myself that

I'm Back

So I decided to start doing this stuff again. Hopefully I do a little better than last semester. I was reading some of my old stuff and I decided not to 'edit' it at all. I hope I didn't say anything mean or demeaning to anyone that reads any of the past stuff. If so I apologize and I probably didn't mean it. I did see that I promised to write a summary of last semester. Now that it is over I don't think it was all that bad. At times I did feel like I was a work mule and I did spend a lot of time in the library. Especially that half a month when I was really busting my hump over our memo. So I am sure this is a slanted view. If I had not done well I am sure that I would be saying that law school sucks and I hate it. I am sure doing well in something really allows you to say that you are buying into it. All in all I knew I enjoyed the stuff and so I should have known that it wouldn't be that bad. What I really come away with is that it is different for everyone. It is a very subjective experience. I was talking to someone who doesn't even know if he wants to stay in law school. He enjoyed it but he said it is showing him that he may not want to be a lawyer. That is what I think is the hardest part of law school. You don't know whether or not this is right for you, but you have to chuck thousands of dollars at it and hope. It creates a system where people do it, whether or not they like it, just because it is all they can do to pay back their loans. Hopefully since lawyers are allowed to do some many diverse things and delve into many different practice areas that people will find where they fit in.
Enough about last semester. If you really want me to delve more into it then leave a comment and I'll respond to particular questions. I think it is time to have some lunch and I will post a funny story in a little bit. Good to be back.
