This post came out like the last bit of toothpaste


I just spent twenty minutes trying to write coherently about law school's effect on people, but it kept on coming out all stilted and boring. I think my brain is still recovering from the unexpected nap I took not too long ago and I have not fully regained human consciousness yet. (HA HA HA when do I ever!)

This writing a daily post has been an interesting experience. I can feel unused, dusty parts of my brain blearily waking up and going huh? what time is it? can I have coffee? Yes, scientists, I've isolated the blogging center of the brain. All it requires is coffee and it will awaken long enough to produce a not-too-long, inconsequential post about nothing.

Did you read the recent New Yorker article about procrastination? (Actually, this is not that much of a veer from my previous post, as the article is a book review, or whatever New Yorker articles about books are, about a book called "The Thief of Time." Yay themes! Blogging = thieves of time!!) Anyways, I thought it was a great little article about procrastination and how “Procrastination most often arises from a sense that there is too much to do, and hence no single aspect of the to-do worth doing. . . . Underneath this rather antic form of action-as-inaction is the much more unsettling question whether anything is worth doing at all.” SO TRUE.

Wow, this post is meandering like a line at the bank. I think all I have done is somehow connect blogging to procrastination to how nothing is worth doing anyway. That is much more bleak and hopeless than I intended. Anyways....

Maybe I've taken one too many trips on the shuttle with 1Ls freaking out or found myself too often in the cloud of 3L self-important personal kingdoms, but I want to get away from all that. So my mind turned to a pattern I started noticing right about the time before I entered law school of people who either went through law school or quit or were lawyers etc and then did something totally awesome. Like I took a tour of Murray's cheese caves and one of the cheese affineurs (affineuses?) — they see the cheese through the aging process — had gone to law school and then decided it wasn't for them and went into cheese. (What I want to know now is, does she pay her law school debt in cheese?!)

So I thought, along the way this month (and to give me a fallback on entry subjects), I'll highlight some people that are or were on the law path and also do something awesome. I hardly know anything about this first person, but she has a blog which I stumbled upon last year, probably on a link-clicking spree having to do with letterpress. I have no idea what her job is or if she's still in school, but she's creating stuff! She prints awesome menus for dinners and brunches! Yay creativity!!
