Spring Break is Almost Over

School starts back on Monday. :(

I take a long time to wind down and do nothing. It's Saturday and this is the first day of Spring Break that I haven't studied for at least two hours. Most days I worked at least six hours.

However, I didn't really do much towards my brief. We just got the assignment right before break, so we haven't really talked yet about what to do. I started researching and getting elements written down, but I haven't really sunk my teeth into it.

Now malaise has set in and I don't want to do anything school related. I'll probably take another week to get back into things. I'm depressed that school is starting back. I feel far more productive not going to class. ha ha!

My Brain on Law School

I went to dinner with a lawyer friend before I took the LSAT. She told me that law school would completely alter the way I think.

At first I didn't see any difference. I didn't argue with everyone over everything. I didn't throw around Latin phrases.

However, negligence abounds! I see torts everywhere. I don't see them and think - oh great, law suits for me to file, money for me to make.

I think, the wrong person, the wrong place, the wrong time, and because of a lack of due care, someone gets hurt. And that someone sues. That someone sues a person who could have easily avoided it and who may not be able to avoid a law suit.

The old Learned Hand test comes to mind along with the saying, "An ounce of wisdom is worth a pound of cure."
