So today was the last day before Spring Break. The last day before Spring Break in law school is a lot like the last day before a break in middle or high school. No one pays attention. No one has done the HW. Etc. It’s pretty brutal.
With that being said, many of my classmates and I took the opportunity to surf the web and send pictures around to each other via G-chat. The above slideshow is a compilation of those pictures. The internet is awesome
By the way: I’m going to Las Vegas next Thursday for a bachelor party. Spring Break = F Yes.
Thanks again to those who continue to send in random stuff. Here are a handful of other good questions people have sent in. I apologize if I haven’t posted your questions. Some of them just suck. And some may not be appropriate.
1) How long have you been doing this blog, and how long did it take for people to start following what you have to say? I’m trying this out and I feel like I am posting to myself. It gives me something to do when I am bored either way, so I do like it. Did you feel the same way at first?
To a certain extent, I empathize with you I Guess This Will Work. I started my blog roughly a year and a half ago. The only reason I started it was to put funny stuff up on one common site so all my friends could check it out. It was a more efficient way for me to share stuff than e-mailing it out all the time.
As far as people reading what you write and consistently following your blog: Honestly, it takes a little luck. At first, I had a constant readership/viewership of like ten people (and they were all friends of mine). Long story short, one of the guys who read my blog showed it to another friend of his who has a blog (which is much more popular than mine) and she shared it with her friends. Snowball effect of sorts.
The trouble with that situation (or maybe trouble isn’t the best word), is that you then have to keep up the pace and keep posting or people will quickly lose interest.
One last point: Not to sound like a d-bag — although if you have to preempt a statement that way you probably are going to sound like a d-bag — but you do have to create an identity for yourself. Almost every single person I follow on Tumblr has a unique identity, which is a cool way to escape the dredges of the internet. Good luck.
2) How do you slide across the floor?
I’m assuming that this question comes from the name of the website and my propensity to talk about my lack of sock wearing with loafers. CLICK HERE to see how I slide across the floor.
3) Who are five really random people that you like? They have to be somewhat famous, but not famous enough for everyone to know.
Dude, that’s a pretty good question. Here’s my list in no particular order (please note that I’m sure a lot of people will know some of these folks, but not all):
1) John Cheever
2) Andrew Sullivan (of writer/blogger fame)
3) Lucinda Williams
4) Chris Anderson (of Denver Nugget fame)
5) Michael C. Hall (of Dexter fame — yes, yes, I know a lot of people watch the show, but if you walked up to a friend and said, “Do you like Michael Hall?” I bet you’d get a bewildered look 70 percent of the time.
4) What are you giving up for Lent?
Typically, I don’t give something up for Lent. Growing up Presbyterian, that’s not something we normally did. However, because someone asked this question — I feel like I might need to do something special. This year, I’m going to limit my checking of Facebook to once a day for 15 minutes. I hope that this will continue past simply one month, but for now — this is a good start.
