First Day Derek Jitters

Sit back, take in the information. You won't cover anything that is meaty. Don't be the ass who's first to raise his or her hand. But if someone is like that, don't think you're better than them for sitting in the back of the class, too cool to say anything. Before you know it, you'll be soaked in beer thanks to a headbutting partner on a bus.

The title reminded me that I'd like to rant about Wheaties. Their big box currently is graced by none other than Alex "Knobluach 2006" Rodriguez. I feel like taking a Sharpie to the box before enjoying my cereal, but that's a lot of Sharpie ink.

Can't they just put Michael Jordan back on the box? Or maybe someone cooler than A-Rod, like say, Chase Utley?

Betraying my 1L status, I bought a book on Immigration instead of Civ Pro because the books have indentical design and color. Welcome to the land of no pretty pictures and drawings on textbooks!

Sorry Earl, baby kissing is not a suitable alternative for substantive knowledge in this world.

But that's probably only because there's no babies in class.

Sorry this is off topic, but I looked for a suitable "permanent thread" and none looked appropriate, and dammit, I demand an answer:

Can anyone explain why they switched our locker numbers? It may be a trivial thing, but I can't think of any reason for it, and it's already irritating me. What was wrong with our old locker assignments?

If we were allowed to keep our old lockers, the registrar *gasp* would have to do more work because they would have to take into account what lockers are already assigned when giving new lockers to the 1Ls.

Nice theory. But last year the lockers stayed put. As far as I know, the year before they stayed put also.

My hunch is that there were complaints about having crappy lockers. I can see it now: "But I have this back condition and I can't bend down to pick up my case books, supplements, and commercial outlines three times a day from a locker that's 3 mm off the ground...especially one in the back of the locker room. tee hee."

I didn't even remove my lock and I could have. Fuck it. If they want to take my front, top-side locker from me, I'm going to make them work for it.

The reasons the lockers changed is because the powers that be want to see how many inane, annoying acts they can perform in one year without the students taking pitchforks and torches to the Registrar's office. The only reason they were not changed before was to lull you into a false sense of security.

I don't think it's a coincidence that we had all our lockers changed the summer after the Registrar cemented her place in office and commenced her reign of terror. If it saved her an iota of work, I'm sure she would not hesitate to blow up all of our lockers and force us to reassemble them with chewing gum and pliers.

Speaking of facilities, I thought that they were going to re-do 110 over the summer. What happened to that? Was I mistaken? The new rooms are pretty sweet. When I'm in there, makes me feel like I go to a school where I'm paying $25K a year to be there.

I agree with 9:35 (about the new rooms, not about posting on this blog when bar review is going on). I'll have more on remodeling later.
