Law school is mostly a blur of stressful situations and hours spent studying. Every once in a while, however, our professors give a little speech about how much they care about us, and how we should try to balance our lives with non-law school related activities. I think they're worried that someone's going to kill himself.
Our Evidence professor gave us one such speech today. In particular, he told us that we should try to make friends who aren't law students or lawyers. He ended the talk by telling us that, if we need to, we should go see the campus counseling services.
The first suggestion -- to make non-lawyerly friends -- is probably wise. Everyone needs good influences, right? The reminder about the counseling services just strikes me as funny. Also funny: that the people who are making our lives so stressful suggest that we go to Jamaica for spring break. Sorry, professor, I'll be too busy working on the brief to go to Jamaica this year. Gee, thanks for the suggestion though.
Sigh. Maybe next year.
