I hit a milestone today, I finished a year of law school. My grades are shit, but I passed. That’s all that matters. Law school is so different from other school. Grades are negotiable. “Yes [future employer], I’m going to be in the bottom third of my class, easily, but I’d still be great for your firm and this is why.” And they might just buy it. I mean, it worked for me.
This milestone made me think about other milestones I’ve hit. There’s been quite a few, so I might have to write a book someday. For now, I decided these are the highlights:
1. I once ran barefoot down a dirt road in a bikini. This followed the worst tubing down the river misadventure ever. That was a good day.
2. I kicked a guy out of my apartment one morning with the line, “you have to leave I have a date in a couple hours.” I obviously felt like a bad ass.
3. I met a guy on while on spring break in who later convinced me to break into his football stadium to climb to the top of the scoreboard. Yup.
Obviously, these milestones are very different from the whole law school thing. But they’re way more entertaining and they actually make me smile, unlike law school, which just makes me drink.
