The life of a former software engineer, now a law student

OK, this is too funny. Last week, one of the gadget weblogs had a meetup in town. The location was really close to my house, so I figured I had to go. (I've definitely mentioned my geekiness before, so this isn't embarassing.) It was pretty decent, as these things go, and I got to see a whole bunch of new toys that I'll be getting just as soon as I get a paycheck again (assuming I can talk D into it). Today, they posted pictures from it and sure enough, I'm right in the middle of one of them, with my geekiness on display to the world. The best part is that I first heard about it from my old co-workers who spotted me in the picture. They're making fun of me, but I know they're jealous.

Believe it or not, I actually haven't been spending the last month just going to blog meetups. I've also done such fun things as studying and outlining. Yesterday was my first exam (Evidence) and my only in-building exam for the quarter. 30 multiple-choice questions, each with 10 possible answers. Very, very intense. Halfway through, I lost interest in working on it, but still had to keep going. As it turns out, there were a few things that I didn't learn until I re-read that part of the book during the exam. Not the best time to learn, but there you go.

Now all I have left is two take-home exams and a paper, all due Friday. Which basically means that I have no reason to leave the house between now and then. I think this is going to get ugly.
