Every time I go back home, it's the same story.

To relatives: "Yes, law school is great. It's a lot of work, and I wish I had more time to enjoy the city, but I'm really learning a lot."

To parents: "Yes, the money you're dropping into this degree is totally worth it. And all those loans you co-signed for me, don't worry, there is zero chance I'll default on them."

To former classmates:"Oh, you think that biology assignment is tough? You baby. I just spent 36 hours straight learning the intricacies of the excited utterance rule. Your life has no value."

To friends: "Please kill me now. Please."

To God: see "to friends"

To self: "No wonder I left this shithole, I can't wait to get back to school."

Second day of class...
Professor Evil: Mr. X, what do you think about the holding in this case?
Mr. X: well.....
Professor Evil: Mr. X, what are you doing in that seat??? On my seating chart you're one seat over.
Mr. X: ummm......
Professor Evil: Does not the syllabus make it very clear that you cannot switch seats after the first day of class?
Mr. X: yeah, I guess so, I must have made a
Professor Evil (interrupting): I made this very clear on the syllabus. Mr. X, do you have the syllabus with you?

I came to law school because I had no other options. What do you do with a useless BA? Go to law school, moron.
It sucks so much because it is pointless. Utterly pointless. I'm learning to "think like a lawyer"? What an complete load of garbage. If I have to read one more pre-1800 case so that I understand the "context" in which the current law developed, I'm going to fucking kill someone.
Because I'm an idiot.
Because lawyers have nothing else in life to hold onto except their salary and prestige. Wife and kids sure aren't gonna stick around for long when you're at the office until midnight six days a week. Not when they can get half your assets in a divorce settlement.
I should have realized sooner that this might not be the path for me. But once you drop that 60k on your first year, you're kinda stuck. Now I'm caught in the whirlpool.
Because I'm caught in the whirlpool, all I can do is whine. So listen!

Venting is bliss.

Why oh why?

Did I come to law school?
Does it suck so much?
Did I not research what I was getting myself into?
Are lawyers so pretentious?
Have I accepted my fate without more of a fight?
Am I wasting everyone's time with this blog?
