things you will do when you run out of other things to do
- You will try, try, TRY to lose your extra winter padding, to no avail. It’s too hot to go to the gym today. It will probably be too hot to go tomorrow. Did I mention the gym isn’t air conditioned? Sick joke, right? How are you supposed to work your abs when your eyebrows are drooping in a “Persistence of Memory” sort of way? By the way, they’re serving sweet potato fries and mac and cheese in Dewick, right?
- You will get so, so, SO excited about your summer internship that sitting through any class will become excruciating. Did you know that Ruth Bader Ginsburg did pro bono for the ACLU of NJ? You will have the same workplace as RBG once did! She is your idol!
- You will finally write those 20 pages for that class. Research hurts. You want to gouge your eyes out with your highlighter if you have to read one more critique of Robert Dahl’s pluralism. You just realized his name sounds like Roald Dahl. You kind of wish that you were writing this rag on Witches, Matilda, or James and the Giant Peach.
- You will try to pick classes for next semester. Yell yourself hoarse at the computer as you watch your preferred picks turn red and get slapped with a CLOSED heading. Freaking upperclassmen. (This is not a legitimate complaint because you’re a junior, after all)
- You will start to worry about missing your boyfriend this summer when you will be living a few hundred miles apart. This will suck. You will live. You will feel worse for your roommate— her boy is moving to California. But this summer, who will win the weight loss contests when you’re so far apart? Might as well give up now. Back to the first bullet, you guess.
- You will watch this show a lot, even though it’s stupid and unrealistic. That’s not what being a real lawyer is like. You would know. You do mock trial.
