Best Summer Ever Week 15: Prelude to 3L Fall Semester

Law school orientation dominated the past week.

I was an orientation leader and spent the majority of my week convincing 1Ls that they can survive their first year of law school without being crazy. I also squeezed in some hours at the office, a movie, and even went to the Minnesota State Fair with Alesus.

The professor is uncomfortable.
I get uncomfortable because he’s uncomfortable.
He gets more uncomfortable…so do I…and it’s just terrible. Continue reading “The video fail, mass awkwardness” »
