"Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane, I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain."

Current Anthem: I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones.

In other news, I got a series of e-mails from the Dean of Students office today, which showed just how important the bar exam is to the law school.

E-Mail #1:

Please be advised that all Pendaflex folders will be cleaned out on Wednesday, July 25th, 2007 in preparation for the upcoming school year. All contents will be discarded at this time. Thank You.
(A Pendaflex is one of those hanging file folders, basically it's a ghetto version of a mailbox. All the law students have one with their name on it, and largely before this year their contents consisted of advertisements for Patent Bar Review Courses. It was also a good way to exchange things of relatively low value with people that you didn't see frequently. Then we started finally having laptop exams and flash drives were returned in them).

E-Mail #2:
As a follow-up to the previous e-mail, only paper will be discarded. Flash drives, when they are placed in your Pendaflex folders, will not be discarded.
E-Mail #3:
In light of the concerns of several graduate students who are taking the bar exam on Tuesday, July 23rd & Wednesday, July 24th, [sic] we will postpone the cleaning-out of the Pendaflex folders until Friday, August 3rd. Only paper will be discarded. Anything of value will be held in your name in the Dean of Students Office. Flash drives will remain in the Pendaflex folders. Thank you for your cooperation.
I'm sorry, do you not have "BAR EXAM" written on your calendar? You're the friggin Law School! WHAT THE HELL! You work in the Dean of Students Office no less. You would think that you might give a crap about what we're doing after graduation, but clearly if it doesn't relate to us telling you that we have jobs, so you can try to drag the Law Schools' rank out of the 4th Tier, you don't care about us once we graduate. Not like you cared about us when we were students. This is why I am refusing to ever acknowledge that I am employed to you (if I ever am), since I refuse to assist in the trapping recruiting of more innocents.

P.S.-Good job with the dates in the 3rd e-mail.

That's brutal. What a bunch of morons. Our school waits to do all the painting and heavy maintenance until after the bar exam.

Our school decided to remodel our law school building and our law library. Our library hasn't had bathrooms for the past two months. Its beyond ridiculous!
