And We're back...

So then it happens. For awhile there you don't think it will. That life that you knew for 4 months has been drank into oblivion so you think, but it happens. You start school again.
By now you have your grades. Some people did well, some didn't, some people aren't there anymore, but that is of no consequence. You pick up where you left off, and actually forget you were even on Christmas break.

There is a renound sense of i would say calmness. We have been there before. It is not as new and exciting, but if anything it may be a tad daughting becasue now you know exactally what is in store for the next few months. The first case you read is slow. (it has probably been awhile since you read anything with substance). Then the next one is a bit easier. By the end of preparing your first day assignments, you are ready to get after it.

Going back to law school after the break is an interesting situation. The first day back you get a bunch of phone calls from your buddies, but once you say you are back in law school they mutter an "Oh" and stop calling you. The end of the week leaves you as you were when you left for the break. Alone with all your law buddies, and what friends you can chase down on a friday night if you even have time to do that.

However it feels good. Kinda like an old slipper. You quickly gage your profs and figure out the ones that you really have to bust ass for, and you go on about your business.

In previous posts I mentioned that i may talk about the people in the different levels of law school. I've decided not to do that. Why you may ask? Well, it is because it doesnt really matter. It is totally whatever. Law School is a very personal thing. Yes, there are certain elements much like marine boot camp for your mind, but the perspectives are totally different. To everyone law school is different. I like to go at it alone, some need more people with them, but either way it is how you choose to view it.

I also apologize for my lack of funny posts. Things haven't been all that funny recently. I mean there a few law jokes i could tell, but they are a waste of time unless you were there specifically.

What is kinda funny is that I lead two diffrent lives. My first one is the law school one. Im serious, standoffish, wear my hat down low, and get through the week. Mostly under everybody's radar. I like it that way. It gives me time to think and to study. This was the system last semester and they are letting me come back to law school so im going to stick with it. Then there is the weekend life. Here i am loud, drunk, wild and do crazy things. The one life doesn't know the other at all.
