I sort of cut off a professor while driving this morning.
Let me tell you the story.
So, it wasn’t blatant but I had to speed up in order to merge into the left hand land so I could turn at the next stoplight. It was close enough that I was like, “Gee, I hope that person doesn’t turn into the school parking lot after me.” And sure enough, they did.
And then it got worse.
As I pulled into the student side of the lot, I saw the other car pull into the faculty side of the parking lot.
I may have stayed in my car for five extra minutes so that the prof wouldn’t see me exit my car.
The rest of my morning went fairly smoothing and my afternoon looks good too. Why? Because I actually read for all my afternoon classes! I’ve been kind of a slacker in two of my classes this semester. Professional Responsibility and Family Law are do not demand much class participation so I feel less accountable—this is a bad thing in law school!
In my defense, the PR textbook is really annoying to read. It’s set up so you’re just reading a bunch of questions instead of cases that explain the law. The Family Law cases are actually really interesting and read like a story. However, much of our reading is also just fluff—like, what is the point of me reading this short story by Amy Tan? I’m in law school, not English class (and I can say that because I was an English major and an English teacher).
But enough of me trying to justify my lack of dedication in these two classes. I just wish I could be as dedicated to PR and Family Law as I am to running! 🙂
Lunch today was quick and easy—leftover turkey chili and cornbread. I froze the leftover cornbread from last night. Today, I just defrosted it for a minute and then reheated for thirty seconds. As I said before, I thought the cornbread was good, just a little dry. To remedy this situation, I broke up the piece of cornbread into pieces and added it to the chili. Super good.
Chili + cornbread
2 classes down and 2.5 to go. PR is just about over… 😉
