My ass is sore; it must be Tuesday

Tuesdays are grueling. Here in this little bubble protecting me from the real world, usually referred to as law school, Tuesdays are a grueling exercise in endurance.

Why? I sit on my ass for a minimum of five (5) hours every Tuesday: one hour each for Jurisdiction, Bioethics, and Federalism. Two hours for Legal Ethics. On some unhappy Tuesdays (today was one of these) I have to go to lunch meetings which usually last about an hour. That makes six (6) hours with my butt in a chair. Plus whatever time I must spend sitting down to prepare for tomorrow's classes.

I know, I know. All of you out there working construction jobs must surely pity me. And with good reason! Why, your aching arms, legs, neck, stomach, and feet can distract you from any soreness in your butt. As a law student, these luxuries are denied me. I feel my aching ass acutely.

My advice to all of you hard workers out there: count your blessings that you're not in law school.

Um, yeah, and all the people who work in front of a computer all day, we don't feel your pain? Eight hours, baby, eight hours.

I'm w/you Carey. 5.5 hours of class on Tuesday, plus office hours for clinic and journal, means nearly every hour between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. is dedicated to something on Tuesdays. The good news: My school week is practically over by 8 p.m. Tuesday night. The bad news: Mondays and Tuesdays (and the weekend beforehand in preparation) are murder. Sometimes I *wish* I just had an 8-hour/day sitting at computer job, but then, the grass is always greener. Plus, I'd get fired b/c I'd just blog all day. ;-)

I guess it just goes to show how un-demanding the law school life is. Physically, at least. :)
