Just being in this building gets me down. Even if I'm just sitting in this building and not thinking about school at all, I get a lot happier when I just get away.
Well, I can't think of any reason not to say it here, so I'll just say it: I couldn't stand the heat. I got out of the kitchen. I withdrew from App Ad. I could make it up next fall, if'n I'm still here. That's far from certain.
Ah, now here's a fantasy: I write an important and well-received book about the law and legal education that gets published and earns back all the money that's been spent on this law school trip. You know, there really isn't a book about law school for people who don't want to go to law school, never even thought about going to law school, and hate lawyers to death. Everyone in our society ought to know about and be concerned with what goes on in places like this, because everyone is affected.
p.s. I wish I had the chutzpah to drop out of appellate advocacy. Kudos!
If you ever need to talk, I'm only an email/IM/Friendster Message/phone call away. I don't know how much insight I can provide, but I've made it this far kicking and screaming!
