Now that I’ve withdrawn from the clerkship application process,* I’ve officially lost all motivation to study. Two weeks into the semester I still have little idea about what’s going on in Evidence. I have some vague idea about what’s going on in Commercial Transactions, but too much is going on in that class.
In other news, I finally installed Windows Vista and Office 2007 on my laptop and desktop. That took a lot time, but time is something I expect to have a lot later on this semester.
*: Disclaimer: in case anyone thinks I’m all sour grapes with the clerkship process, I am not. I still think a clerkship is a great learning opportunity and one of the highest honors a law student can get, and the process went as well as it could be for me up to the point I cancelled all my interviews–it’s just that federal clerkships are theorectially available but practically foreclosed to someone who’s married with a kid and hates to be separated from the family for a 4th year. Having to go entirely without pay for a year as a noncitizen while two loans need to be repaid and the kid is grow up fast finally tipped the balance. Did I mention no sour grapes?
