Today, I chilled with one of my friends. That was the highlight of my day. While chilling with said friend, I realized that in 3 years of my time at Law school, my happiest memories were all from things that had happened professionally – entirely in relation to my time as a Law student or as someone attached to the Law.
As someone who is trying really hard to break that “attached-at-the-hip” relationship situation I have going on with “work” in general, taking that time to literally sit with someone and have a fun face-to-face conversation while looking at cat photos is something I’m going to remember for a very long time.
I think I’m probably going to spend more time looking at cat photos. There’s something very calming about how majestic their poses are. I’m wondering now if I’ll ever be able to pull off a pose like that.
But seriously, it affected me a fair amount that I couldn’t think of the last face-to-face conversation I had had with someone where “work” didn’t crop up as some part of the conversation. That’s a very weird thing. So it’s time to remedy that.
Also, I’m not sure if I’ve updated you about this but our washing machine has now been out of service for over a week. First year me would’ve washed his clothes three times by now. Fourth year me has piled up 2 bags of laundry and has GNLU Event shirts to survive in for the entirety of next week.
Considering the time I am awake at, I could actually end up going to the gym today in the morning. Before class.
If I manage that, I believe I am entitled to some cake as celebration.
Massive shoutout to 3000, who has surprised me in the craziest way possible.
