Okay, bosses. I'm checking in hourly with my updates.
The morning has been super-productive! I completed two tasks: putting away my suitcase from the trip and sending off two interview thank you notes. Plus I got ready already. Here's the proof:
Ready to go. All that work before 9 AM is exhausting. Is it too early for a nap?
Yo, yo. I'm reporting to you live from Copyright class. Last hour, I did my Copyright reading--the NFL got all pissy with some sports bars--and then I rode my bicycle to school. You'll be terribly excited to see how much reading I have to do today. Fascinating! Also, I bought a coffee.
I'm now in Constitutional Law II, also known as the bane of my existence. My professor is talking a mile-a-minute about political process models, insular minorities, preemptory challenges, quasi-suspect classifications, and stigmatization. Wish you were here!
Announcement: I finally had a chance to pee! Woot! I will now be attending a lunchtime discussion on Careers in In-House Counsel. I will attempt to multi-task by listening to the speakers, eating my free lunch, and also getting some tasks done. On deck: reading for my next class and responding to emails.
Last class of the day, people, last class of the day. Then I'll really get down to business.
So, I've got this all screwed up because I've been telling you what I am going to do, rather than what I've actually done. This is not really a fantastic plan, because telling you what I am going to do does not really hold me accountable for actually then doing those things. For example, last hour I reported that I was going to class. Right after reporting to you that I was going to class I could have decided that, never mind, I was going to go get ice cream instead and you would never know. To iron out this wrinkle--to make your job easier--I'm going to stop reporting what I plan to do and start reporting what I actually have done. That said, I did go to class last hour and did not go get ice cream. So, I'm a stellar employee, in other words.
Last hour I went and negotiated with some contract people. I was all, yo, I understand that most people just sign contracts without reading the terms and whatnot, but I'm a baby lawyer and this indemnification clause? You're just gonna have to change that. I'm hardcore(ish). I rode my pink bike over to take care of that business so it took most of the hour, however, we are going to count that as TWO tasks completed because in my world riding a bike to run errands = working out!
COULD THIS POST GET ANY MORE BORING? For all of you who thought my life was a drunken giraffe-petting magical adventure, boy, were you wrong. Worst of all, I can't even blame you for asking for these incredibly boring hour-by-hour updates on the life of a law student, because you didn't ask for them. I am forcing them upon you in what could be the worst-ever post in the history of SoPink. But, I'm all committed to the post now, so I'll report that last hour I attempted to figure out some website stuff. Also, I rode my bike home so I am now eating candy corn.
I applied for a job.
I went email crazy last hour! I email, email, emailed. Then I rode my bike to Starbucks, where I am now enjoying an oatmeal (Starbucks has oatmeal. What?) and a caffe latte with some friends.
Going to the bar.
