With law school classes and papers anyway
Today was my very last day of class as a student at the North Carolina Central University School of Law, and man it was a doozy.
Our final exam in NC Distinctions was at 12:00pm, after which I immediately booked it down to my cubicle to grind out my unfinished two final papers in Arbitration. Not only did I get those done, but I also found my old notes to myself and typed up those missing journal entries too — if I can’t get an A or an A-, at the very least I’m gonna try to make Prof Arbitration think long and hard before giving me lower than a B+!
When I got home tonight I was completely drained mentally. I mean barely-forming-coherent-sentences drained. So I headed over to the bar next to my apartment to indulge in their cheese fries and a celebratory drink
I’ve just got my Professional Responsibility exam a week from today and I’ll be finished with law school. I can’t convey to you in words how TOTALLY @#$%ING AWESOME it feels to be done with papers and classes!
This is going to be one incredibly peaceful night’s rest. Have a great weekend everybody!

Good evening y’all!
Tonight was our annual 3L Graduation Dinner at NCCU Law, one last chance for the Class of 2012 to get together and enjoy good food, revel in the fact we’re about to graduate, and otherwise have a good time
No surveys taken to determine if being a politician qualifies as being in the public sector...
We also announce the winners of our Class Superlatives, things like “Most Likely to be Late to Graduation” and that sort of thing.
And I ended up with two
Now I’ll concede up front: I don’t think anyone was surprised that I was voted “Most Likely to be a Politician.” Between 1L year as UNCASG President, 2L year as SBA Treasurer, and 3L year as SBA President (plus being Student Senate President and UNCASG President at N.C. State), it’s obvious by now that I really enjoy this stuff and being in a position to help folks.
The stunner was getting called back up to the stage a second time as the people’s choice for “Most Likely to Work in the Public Sector”
Sure, it’s shaping up that will probably be the case — NC SPICE is coming together slowly — but for other folks to think it was a surprise, especially with my not-infrequent rantings against Big Guv’mint (see here and here and here for examples).
I’m a little flattered, very appreciative, but mostly just shocked. Even though it’s “just” a superlative, I’m hoping down the road I’ll be able to live up to them both
Until then, have a great night y’all!
