Just when you thought you’d completely managed to forget about the logic game on which you may or may not have missed a deduction, here comes June 29th staring you in the face. For those of you no longer living in the dark ages (i.e. those without online LSAC accounts, who probably aren’t reading this blog so I can make fun of them), that is the day that you will be e-mailed your score from the June 2011 LSAT (eek!).
Here at Blueprint, we don’t like it when you wake up in a pool of sweat on consecutive mornings (unless it means you had an incredibly intense dreams about slaying dragons), so we thought we’d provide some diversions to stave off the LSAT score angst. And thusly (hooray for superfluous and antiquated suffices!) here comes another helpful, SEO-friendly list from my e-pen of things to do while you wait for your LSAT score:
1. The same thing you do every night. Try to take over the world.
Okay, for those of you not entirely familiar with the Animaniacs canon, “Brain” is an evil, giant-headed mouse who, alongside companion “Pinky,” attempted to take over the world every night (or at least every time an episode aired). They never succeeded, but they failed in spectacular and hilarious fashion, usually due to Pinky’s mistakes. As the theme song says, “One is a genius, the other is insane.”
What’s this got to do with you? I suggest you start forming your plan for world domination. Figure out what you want to study in law school. Figure out what you want to do with your law degree. As a wise man once said, “You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning.” Much the same, you can’t do what you want for the rest of your life if you don’t start today. So start today!
2. Go to Vegas.
Yeah, I know Bradley Cooper and the boys decided to party in Bangkok this year, but there is no substitute for the classic. Vegas was made for forgetting about things that you want to forget about. There’s nothing like a few hours of $5 per hand blackjack and all the free Irish Whiskey you can drink to make those thoughts of June 29th fade into the distance. (as Mikey in Swingers once said, “The trick is to look like you don’t need it, then they give you the shit for free.”). And if that doesn’t work for you, just hang out by the pool for a couple hours in the middle of day. Heat stroke is sure to distract you for at least a little while.
3. Start a Blog
Have an interest besides legal practice, the LSAT, or law school? Good. Think you can write decently, maybe even a little bit? Even better. Go pontificate. Do it on the internet. All those errant thoughts that you have running though your head will seem instantly important once they have a URL at which people can view them with click of the mouse. Let your friends know how good you are at baking. Let your political opinions run wild. Tell people which side you’re on in the Harry Potter vs. Twilight debate (and really, is there any debate? Harry Potter takes it in a landslide). Whatever your muse happens to be, wordpress will give you a forum. Enjoy!
