Twice the pleasure

Posted by Shake sense into me

Lucky reader of my blog, you receive two posts today! Generally I write many drafts that I never post, because mid way through writing something I lose motivation. But when the mood strikes, I must post.

So post number two goes something like this...

This semester of law school sucks, socially, because EVERYONE is coupling up and therefor DITCHING me.

No one wants to get to know one another anymore, no one is fun like they used to be. No one is even serious about studying. What they are serious about is hanging out with their lovers 24/7.

So, this gets me thinking, since I have no one of my liking to play footsie with at the library, what shall I do with my spare time?

What do single people do, by themselves?

Man oh man.

I have some riveting tales of my adventures in I-want-love town. Too bad for me, one of the requirements for citizenship in said town is that you must actually want love. If you try and date a member of I-want-love town, without actually wanting love yourself, you get into some trouble. You see, all members of I-want-love town assume that you want love just as they do, however they do not tell you to stay away if you do not meet this requirement. Instead, they lie to you and tell you they do not want love either. What they want, however, is to go on dates with you, have sex with you, hold your hand, spend multiple nights a week with you, and also - they would like for you to please not see any other people. Is that not a relationship?

All goes well until one day, somebody is hurt by a seemingly little detail, such as - you did not sit next to them when they wanted you to (without telling you this was their desire) and after this incident, they overreact. Then, they blame you - you should have known. You are cruel. You are playing games with their heart.

That is when you realize you must run, run, run, as fast as you can away from them. I wish so badly to tell you my stories regarding this town, because they are good. Some of the characters I have met include: Mr. Manboobs, Mr. Lets ask all the girls I know on a date until I find one that sticks, Mr. I only have serious relationships, Mr. I spit when I talk and that means I own you, Mr. I'm hot as hell and will flirt with you but you should know that I'm engaged, and let us not forget Mr. Two dates equals a relationship.

I am a former citizen of Long-term Relationship town, and that town, while it looks more appealing with every passing day, unfortunately, I destroyed my membership card and thus cannot go back. Also, this is supposed to be for the best, right?

I respectfully retract my application (that I was unaware I submitted) to be a citizen of I-want-love town. Unfortunately, I do not want love. Sorry!

Please point me in the direction of I'm-afraid-of-commitment town, or maybe I-want-a-fuck-buddy town? If you are not sure where that is, could you possibly let me know where Crazy-Cat-Lady town is? Thanks!

Grades Results Quickie

Posted by Shake sense into me

I did better than I thought. I even scored the highest grade in a class. However, I also received a disappointing grade...but it was passing.

I do not know what to think of my grades. They do not seem special, and yet...they land me well in the top 3rd of the class. But is it good enough? Probably not.

Still no grades

Posted by Shake sense into me

Happy New Year!

I still have no grades. I am eagerly anticipating them now, even though I know I'll be disappointed in myself once I receive them all.

So I am really lagging on applying for jobs. I applied for one yesterday. I should have been applying during the whole month of December. That just seems so impractical though because of all the stress I was dealing with during finals. I have been editing my writing sample, and I have an modifiable cover letter, and a resume. But I am so unmotivated to do any of this. Especially considering the state of the economy and job market...there is no way I will get a paying job this summer. I predict more loans on the horizon...
