What I've learned in law school...
As I sit here trying to force myself to study, it strikes me that I don't remember a single thing that I've learned this semester. In fact, I don't remember much law from the previous three years of law school either. Ack! The last three years has been a waste of time! I can't remember anything that I've learned. This can't be good.
Wait... it's slowly coming back to me... I have learned a few things:
1. The J-Lo rule for exam taking: Always include a big BUT in your exam answer! (get it... J-Lo... big butt... hah!) This was my first year property professor's way of getting us to analyze both sides of every issue. Hilarious, especially coming from an openly gay man who loved to sing us show tunes to teach case law. (the best law professor I've had so far, by a long shot!)
2. When you stay in a hotel room, the first thing you should do is grab a tissue in each hand and remove the bedspread from the bed, carefully, without touching it, and place it in the most remote corner of the room. A practical tidbit of advice from my evidence professor, who prosecutes sex crimes for the DA's office. He told stories about what is really on those bedspreads and how infrequently they get washed (never). Scary. 'Nuf said.
3. Never lie to the Feds. If you do, they will put you in prison. A good lesson from my corporations professor, who entertained the class with an entire class period of analysis on the Martha Stewart case.
That's it! All I've learned in the last three years... or at least the most important things. Wow - I really do need to start studying!
Oh, and knitting content... I took an AWESOME knitting class this morning (heh - there is NOTHING quite like knitting-related procrastination!), sponsored by the local guild and taught by Lorna of Lorna's Laces fame. Lorna is so creative and shared some really great ideas with the class. I learned some neat things, and made some cute items that are to be gifted, so no pictures for now. Also took a study break this afternoon and went to Babetta's Yarn grand opening sale and got some Frog Tree fingering weight alpaca to make the paisley shawl from the IK spring 05 issue. Ahhh... more procrastination! Now, back to my community property outline... yuck.
