Broken Hearts and Time-Travelling Case-theories

Yes, I know, this blog is starting to look like No Man’s Land. You know the excuse even before I say it. Zixian has been bugging me to blog as well, because you know, I am apparently so much freer than her and I need to entertain her.

My heart is currently broken. The L Word Season 5 just ended, and Lost is taking a four-week break, while they catch up the on time lost during the Writer’s Guild strike. It is not so much watching the shows, by themselves, but also listening the podcasts and the reviews/recaps of each episode, that I’ve kinda built into my working schedule. *sobs* No more Kelka, no more We’re Getting Nowhere, no more Jay and Jack, no more Transmission, for a while. Yes, I’m obsessed with Lost. So sue me.

No idea what is going on in Lost, but hey, all the back-and-forth-ness, and the time-travelling, and the complex timeline cannot be worse than my time-travelling case-theory for LAWR, part of which is the status of Chinese customary marriages in 1972. I still cannot figure out whether a case decided in 1982 about a “marriage” performed in 1957 can be used (Yeah, I know, worse than Lost) and all I want to say is, “screw you Carol, couldn’t you just freaking register your liberal hippie marriage” instead of talking about the sanctity of marriage in front of a panel of judges who I am sure include the distinguished family lawyer Prof Leong who has consistently held opposite views to my (assigned) stand in her publications. *facepalm*

Screw Er Gek Cheng and the test for intention.

At least the nightmare will be over on Monday.

They Tried To Make Me Go To Moots…

But I say No No No
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You won’t know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if Eleanor thinks I am fine
They tried to make me go to moots
I won’t go go go

I rather be at home with Grey’s
I ain’t got 17 days
Coz there’s nothing, nothing you can teach me
That I can’t learn from Mr Neumann

Didn’t get a lot in lecture
But I know it don’t come in a snap

They Tried To Make Me Go To Moots
But I say No No No
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You won’t know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if Eleanor thinks I am fine
They tried to make me go to moots
I won’t go go go

The man said, what do you think you doing here?
I said, I got no idea
I’m gonna, i’m gonna lose my GPA
So I always keep a DVD near

Said, I just think you’re stressed
Kick me, yeah baby
And go away

I’m tryin to make me go to moots
I said no, no, no
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You wont know, know, know

I don’t ever wanna moot again
I just, ooo, I just need a break
Im not gonna spend 2 weeks
Have everyone think I am going to be a lawyer

It’s not just that it is timed
It’s just til this ego is re-inflated

They Tried To Make Me Go To Moots
But I say No No No
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You won’t know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if Eleanor thinks I am fine
They tried to make me go to moots
I won’t go go go

For those of you who still didn’t get it… a very obvious parody of Amy Winehouse’s Rehab.

Quotable Quotes Update

There are a lot of couples springing up in law school recently, and most of them got together during LAWR season last semester… I swear, LAWR is a secret SDU scheme.

Speaking Too Soon

Just when I thought we were temporarily free from the evil, crushing, asphyxiating, life-draining clutches of LAWR…

Memorial I.

3000 words.

Due in three weeks.

Someone PLEASE kill me right now.

A Shot at Heaven

After handing in the [insert expletif] memorandum in 3 hours shy of the deadline, Zixian and I went to watch Atonement, my stab at a semblance of a normal life since the day we were given the memorandum assignment. I swear, without LAWR, the food tastes better, the sky looks bluer, the roses smell sweeter… *revels in heaven* And the upside is, they wouldn’t dare give us another assignment next week, because of Chinese New Year.

At least… I hope they don’t.

More on Atonement coming up.

17 Reasons Why I Should Quit Law School

  1. LAWR
  2. Bad food on campus
  3. No hostel on campus
  4. Have to walk up the hill every morning
  5. Did I mention LAWR?
  6. The smell of the canteen food makes me want to puke
  7. She Who Shall Not Be Named
  8. The disciple of She Who Shall Not Be Named
  9. LAWR is sucking up my life
  10. I feel like I am not cut out to be a lawyer because of LAWR
  11. All the cute girls are boring
  12. All the cute guys are gay or attached
  13. Legal Research sucks.
  14. One of the few branches I am interested in, litigation, is the one that is the most painful and LAWR-like.
  15. My other branch of interest, Human Rights, is probably going to be taught by She Who Shall Not Be Named
  16. Contract law sucks
  17. There are no cute gay girls on campus [J, you are my friend and you are confused. You don’t count]

And only one reason why I should stay: I can’t imagine doing anything else.
