A Whole New Set of Troubles

So when I got the email about the admitted students blog I thought what a great idea. I'll get to feel some people out and see if there is anyone who I might want to stay away from as I progress. (I mean I want some friends who are driven, but I don't want that 'let's go hide the book that 75% of the class needs' type) But now by participating in this thing a whole new set of troubles are beginning to crop up. I now find myself checking it incessantly to see what's going on. (Like missing out on the "let's share a U-Haul. you're from (insert your city here) let's hook up and be best friends" will really affect me during the school year)

Side Note: I don't particularly think that a message board, a flurry of emails, or even a quick meeting is enough to know if that person is compatible enough to be your roommate. Plus from what I have been reading (and a lot of this is coming from One L by Scott Turow (a must read for anyone))I think it would be best to live with a non student. Just think about it, if I am going to be turned into this neurotic, legal vocab spewing, live on energy drinks and fumes type of person why would I want to subject myself to living with someone equally or perhaps crazier than me? (Sorry gotta work on keeping the side notes short and sweet and not getting off on tangents)

But back to the message board (and the Facebook page), I constantly find myself wanting to participate and interact with the people that I will have to spend countless hours, days, weeks with in the near future but... I am consistently second guessing myself. What do I want to say? Is that the best way to say it? Will I sound like a pretentious know-it-all. I don't want to be 'that girl' in class, but I need to get over it.

On an unrelated note though, I want my damn schedule and book list so that I can get my stuff and at least have looked at it. Let's be honest I am scared sh**less. I am a complete dork and I found the master schedule on the school's website and I could have classes as early as 8:30 in the morning! And after four years of two hour classes and no classes on Friday I will have to get reacquainted with 75 minute classes and classes on Friday's. Now one of those things sounds better than the other. You guess which one. Arrugh! I have to get over this neurosis!


  1. Hey, hopefully I'll see you at DU next fall. I started a blog a little while back too. I'll give you a link on my page, it's:

  2. I actually recommend living with a fellow student over a non-student (at least for your first year). You want someone who has some idea what you're going through and who understands your need to study. Obviously, you're not going to give up all activities outside of law school, but I think you'll be grateful for a fellow law student during the weeks before finals.
