Narcissistic Yearly Reflection: 2009 wasn't that bad.

It wasn't a great year either.

I traveled more than I usually do. I got to go to Vegas and Boston, I saw Montreal. The job market has been a world of suck, which makes things more anxious for me as I get out of school in either one year or a year and a half depeending on the job market.* I've had some big dramatic internet fights, but not as many as I used to.

I got a great puppy, my sister-in-law got married to a guy who jumps into lakes, ZombieKid is now eleven and the Gnome is nine.

Things are marching on.


*I'm technically in a four-year program, but I like to take classes in the summer, so I should be able to finish early. But it doesn't make sense to do so if there's no job waiting for me.

You've been there already and back? (a reference to the year mentioned in your headline)

"I saw Montreal."

On U*UTube or something? :-)

Uh, no. Was there for a convention.

Personally, it wasn't such a bad year, but generally, for society as a whole it was bad -- the economy, the hopelessness of the soulless corporatism in the USA. the sucky way liberals form a circular firing squad instead of working to get a big enough majority in the Senate to actually get stuff done. The job market. The teen-ness of teenagers.
(I'm reading a book on psychopaths, and it's depressing. Can you tell?)

Will a different prof be teaching Estates & Interests if you wait for the fall? If so, it's probably worth waiting. If not, and you're interested in E&I (is this basically the same as Trusts & Estates? I've not heard of it as E&I before), I guess it's best to suck it up. Continuing Legal Education notwithstanding, I've found it difficult to get an in-depth understanding of areas just through practice that I did not study in school.

(Also, speaking from experience, if your blog can be found by searching your name, you may want to be careful about mentioning identifiable people from school; sometimes your profs and classmates will Google you.)

You're right and I edited accordingly.
