Yesterday I finished my fourth week of law school with a bang: a startling early mid-term. I don’t know why it was called a mid-term, but it was. The test consisted of only one essay question, and I had 30 minutes to read the fact pattern, anaylze it, and determine how a court should rule on a motion to dismiss a declaratory judgment due to lack of in personam jurisdiction. It was the fastest 30 minutes of my entire life. I could have sworn only 15 minutes had passed when a lady popped her head in to tell us that we only had 5 minutes left. So I zipped off a conclusion, and then went back and tried to flesh out my analysis as much as possible. I think I did pretty good.
After the test, I went out with some people from my class. It was the first time I really got to know some of my classmates. It’s nice to finally start establishing some relationships.
I’m going up to Seattle today to check up on my little brother. He start undergrad at SPU on Monday. We’re going to try to go to a boxing match tonight. Sweet! I probably should hit the road . . .
