So, just like that I am DONE first year law school! I am officially no longer a 1L, and there’s a whole new batch of first years heading into orientation this fall. I had no idea what to expect from this time, but the LAST thing I expected was that I would be NOT writing for my blog. A strange thing happened after exams, and I’d be interested in hearing whether other students (especially busy student moms) felt the same way. It’s a bit bi-polar, like I was manic for eight straight months – performing on overdrive with no room for slack. And once that last exam was written, somebody switched a switched, and I was questioning my ability to even get out of bed in the morning. Like a motivation-CRASH. I used up all my motivation a bit too fast during the school year, and spent May pretty much running on empty. (more…)

Yup, it’s true, it’s done! So, you can expect some quality writing from me very soon. In the meantime, here’s a very cute little “law exam” remake of David after the Dentist. If you haven’t seen David after the Dentist, watch it too; it’s pretty cute.
Here’s David after his First Exam – a very accurate portrayal of how it feels to come out of a first year law school exam:
I’m feeling a bit insecure about my ability to write successful law school exams. It’s not a comfortable feeling. I want to say I’ve never experienced anything like it, but actually I felt pretty much exactly the same after the LSAT. 100% confident that I didn’t deliver a perfect product, but also 100% confident that nobody did.

Law school summary writing (for exams) has put me in a bit of a strange mental state. I am fascinated by this Peter Sarstedt song, which is on the soundtrack of The Darjeeling Limited (a great Wes Anderson film …)
I thought it was a bit of a clever joke … you know, “just for fun, for a laugh a hahaha!” but it’s from 1969. Did people have my sense of humour in 1969?
Anyway, here it is. Listen to the lyrics. I’ve pasted them below. If anybody has an insight (into the song, or humour in 1969 …), please share!
You talk like Marlene Dietrich

I wanted to write a little “What Law School is Like” blurb in honour of my impending exams, but was thrilled to find this video instead (thanks Jaime for sharing!)
The coolest thing about it (besides the fact that it’s pretty accurate), is that the gal has a BA in Linguistics, JUST LIKE ME!
