I should have predicted how effortlessly I would transition from being obsessed with basketball shoes between the ages of 8 and 18 to being obsessed with work shoes when I got a real job. Now, instead of running to the mailbox daily to see if the latest edition of Eastbay came, I log onto Gilt daily at noon. Instead of standing in Footlocker staring at Jordan XIs, I sit on Nordstrom’s...

givemesomethingtoread: What I saw and experienced at JiM both enraged and disturbed me. I had trouble staying in character as I watched one man, as part of his therapy, act out beating his father to death with a baseball bat — just one of several “Are you kidding?” moments. How anyone could believe that a JiM weekend could turn a man straight still baffles me. “It was the first time in...

Too Much Time Together
Last night, one of my roommates and I took a break from studying in the library to get dinner at a well-known burger place on campus. About halfway through our meal, I said “Now I’m going to smell like meat all night in the library.” Since we spend approximately 70% of our waking hours within 20 feet of each other, he joined in and we finished my thought in unison:...
I Hate Law School
Our law library has two group study rooms. They are the only places in the library where you can have a discussion at normal volume. The purpose of this post, however, is not to get into an extended discussion about how stupid it is to have two group study rooms for 1100 students (it would actually be a short discussion, cause it’s really fucking stupid), but to complain about the nature...
There's a reason no one takes Canada seriously
And his name is Barry Melrose. Sadly, I couldn’t find a screencap of the Mandarin Lapel suit I saw him wearing on Sportscenter the other day, but trust me, he was wearing one. And it was hideous.
Call me a Communist, but
“Eye of the Tiger” is a terrible pump-up song. I downloaded a workout mix a few months ago and, of course, “Eye of the Tiger” is on there. I skip it every time it comes up. It’s the opposite of a pump-up song. It makes me drowsy. It’s aural Benadryl.

According to Google Maps
It will take me 8 minutes to get from my apartment to my summer place of employment via the subway. Hopefully this will somewhat lessen the pain of wearing a suit every day (except Fridays. Hey, that’s 20% less suit-wearing) during an NYC summer. In related news, HOLY SHIT do I not feel like studying for finals. This may or may not have something to do with why I’m fucking around...
My Canon Rebel XTi Came Today
I’ve taken about 200 pictures in the 2 hours I’ve been playing with it. About 198 of them are terrible.
Biography of Usain Bolt, Mutant →
givemesomethingtoread: In just two years, he has demolished the 100-meter dash world records with times that are superhuman — literally thirty years ahead of what they historically should be. So what if the greatest athlete alive decided to actually get serious? I’ve said it since the 2008 Olympics ended: Usain Bolt is a better athlete than Michael Phelps and what he did was much, much...
Last night was Law School Prom. I experienced a number of foot-in-mouth moments, but this was easily my favorite. One of my roommates and a friend of ours were discussing how their ties were the inverse of each other (both Repp Stripe, one pink with navy stripes, one navy with pink stripes). Then this.
Roommate: Our outfits are almost the inverse of each other.
Friend: If only I was wearing a black shirt.
Me: Thank God you're not. Black dress shirts are hideous.
Female Friend: You mean like my boyfriend's?
Me: Ha. Oh. Well. Not with that tie combo. That looks great.

4.0 For Me
I’m taking two small classes this semester, one that is philosophy-based and one that focuses on corporate litigation. The corporate law seminar is two hours long: one hour of the Professor talking to us about what we read, and the other hour occupied by either a guest speaker or student presentations. During the guest speaker or student presentation, I don’t pay attention....
Trend that I wish would die
Fun fact to prove Duke sucks
The last time a team won an NCAA title without beating a #1 seed or a #2 seed on the way was UNLV in 1990. Sure, WVU was a two seed, but they were missing their starting point guard for the whole game and their leading scorer for most of it. Garbage.
Anyone know anything about photography?

When making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich not intended for immediate consumption, spread peanut butter on the inside of both slices of bread. Then, add the jelly on top of the peanut butter. The peanut butter buffer will prevent the jelly from making the bread soggy. You’re welcome.
It's not funny anymore
This just happened to me again, this time confusing a male classmate of mine who has spent a lot of time in South America for a female friend of mine who currently lives there. This is how the conversation started: Me: So how’s South America? Him: In general? That probably should have clued me in, but no, I kept on asking questions. Either my GChat is broken or someone is having a lot of...

That somehow neglects to mention his 5 points on 0-10 shooting and 4 turnovers in 34 minutes in the Elite 8. Get off of Duke’s dick, ESPN. Also, their “artwork” is 12-year-old-on-MSPaint-esque.
A few days ago someone (I suspect a roommate, but none will fess up) went on my computer and changed my little brother’s gchat name to that of a law student that I know well enough to not question his presence on my GChat list but not well enough to ever talk to. I talk to my little brother almost every day, so the last few times my little brother has GChatted me, I’ve been incredibly...
It's 73 degrees out today
And the heat in this classroom is up so high that you can actually hear the gas running through the pipes. What does the Environmental Law Society do, exactly, if not fix shit like this?
