This Blogging Stuff Can Be Useful Too

I usually think blogging, and my blog in particular, is largely inconsequential. I might be changing my mind after reading this story about how a one word blog helped get a kid out of jail in Egypt. Who knew that my mostly mindless typing may be so useful one day...if I'm in Egypt.

It Just Became About Money, So For Me It Just Got Personal

After having just sent away my payment and requisite forms for the PA bar exam I realized that my motivation is now exactly what it was for the MPRE, not wanting to have to pay to take the test again. It worked before, lets hope it works again.

Other random observations:

-It felt really good walking into barco this morning knowing that it was the last week of classes I'll ever have to take here.

-This morning when I tried to sign onto a school computer I used my work logon ID and password. It feels good to know the working in the law part of my life appears to be overtaking the law school part of my life.

Wisdom from a Friend's Facebook Profile

"Two lawyers walk into a bar . . . One orders a round of drinks for the house. The other one puts on an apron and serves it."

The Joys of a Broken Down Laptop

This morning in class I had one of the more interesting setups I’ve seen in law school. The last screw holding up my laptop’s monitor broke off, meaning that the monitor now just falls straight down. I had some stuff to do on it and I still needed to take notes on it, so what do I do? My fix was to take down one of my big federal supplement law books and prop up the monitor while I was in class. Before I say more let the image of me sitting at a table with a law book behind my laptop propping up the monitor sink in.
What makes this setup even more bizarre is where the federal supplement I’m using came from. It was one of the props I bought from the set of the old NBC show Ed once it was cancelled. So, a fictional bowling alley lawyer helped me take my notes in real life law school this morning.
Lastly, I feel my habit of purchasing memorabilia has been somewhat vindicated. I’m not like other people who just put their knick knacks up on a wall, oh no, my memorabilia to work. Luckily for me my laptop is still under warranty, so I guess I'll finally have to get it fixed.
