You know what I've noticed? Spring brings out some interesting things in people. Perhaps I should be more clear - stupid people come out of the wood work when the sun comes out. This morning I was walking downtown, going to work, and there is an idiot sprawled out in the middle of the bridge with his girlfriend (no doubt short a few screws herself) sitting Indian style in front of him like they are having some sort of Sun Ritual while 3 of their friends look on. What the heck are you doing? And why do I have to walk in between you pretending like everything is hunky dory and like I don't really want to just jump up and down on top of your stupid behind.
Enough of that.
In approximately 32 hours and 15 minutes I will be officially done with law school and all of the side effects. And I was thinking, I'm not sure what I am going to do with myself now that the Socratic method will no longer be the philosophical joy in my utterly boring life. I mean, good old fashion you-already-have-a-degree-so-how-about-you-talk-to-me-for-a-change teaching just doesn't seem to be the "in" thing anymore. What - a professor teach you? Now that would just be too easy. Of course, for three years I have listened to my colleagues, who clearly know no more than I do about the subject, teach me through meaningless back and forth banter with my lovely professors. I am convinced that the Socratic method has everything to do with why I'm just a mediocre student these days. So I blame you, Socrates, for my less than stellar GPA. I blame you for the last minute cramming trying to figure out what I have been listening to in class for the past, I don't know, five months. But that's ok.
Because everything I needed to know in law school I will learn during Bar Review.
Eat that Socrates. Really, eat it.
