Because I re-watched Mean Girls with the block yesterday…and we can’t be productive during a 6-hour break.

1. It’s difficult to fight superstition.
Whether we mean to or not, law students become experts at detecting patterns. My card always get picked after this person, I don’t get called when I’m not wearing my ID, etc. Superstition is the opposite of rationality and it bears down on a person in the long run, but it’s quite hard to completely let it go.
2. It’s time to grow up.
Our professors keep stressing that we are attending a professional school after all. Mostly this means the old excuses and attitudes have to be dispensed with. I personally think my self-discipline has vastly improved in the past four weeks out of sheer necessity.
Lately I’ve been depriving myself of certain things (also, meals, company, sleep among others) because they’re undeserved. It’s not as masochistic as it sounds. It’s a statement reiterating my stand that the Entitlement Generation (i.e. our generation) isn’t really entitled to anything (at least not yet), so we’d better work our butts off now.
3. Bad teachers exist everywhere.
I still believe UP Law is the best place in the country to learn the law and to be a great lawyer. Professors can only teach by invitation, so you’d think they’re all brilliant, but sadly they’re not. As in undergrad, the terror profs turn out to be the best teachers you’ll ever have. Surprisingly I’m thankful for having these institutions teach me, and I’m sorry I can’t say the same for all of them (well, maybe just one).
Surviving, someday thriving.
I set out to an errand today for my dad. His instructions came with a spot map and a sketch of the person I was to look for. Oddly Mang Vic does look like the sketch—nothing much about the face but the hair IS a mess of squiggly lines. Way to go dad! (Taken with Instagram)
