Wasting Time 101Tomorrow is my Partnership final exam, so common sense dictates that I should have spent the whole day preparing for it. But no, instead of stewing amidst a whole bundle of Civil Code provisions, I chose to go to the clinic, type up ultrasound reports, do the weekly inventory, play cashier and do clerical chores. I guess I just wanted a change in setting because five straight days of studying is enough to make any sane person start clawing at walls (it makes me wonder now how I'll fare when Bar season rolls in...but I already have something lined up for that :)
So there, one whole day wasted but I don't regret it one bit. Although I may be singing a different tune in a few hours' time but what the heck. It was refreshing to be in a different environment for once. Where a child's fever merits more attention than a TRO and where a newly printed transabdominal ultrasound report is more important than a court summons.
Sometimes, there's just too much law in our daily lives that it makes me want to puke. Reading the daily paper is barely an escape from school stuff because it's all about hearings and impeachments with the hottest issue now being the Constitutional right to assemble vis-a-vis GMA's latest effort to show everyone that she's bigger than the Constitution. I'm telling you, it's a short person complex coupled with feelings of inadequacy brought about by having a famous father. Because 99.999% of the adult population towers over her, she has to find a way to make them fall on their knees or double over in disgust, that way, she'll be able to stand tall. Well done Madam, you've succeeded.
Okay, I've wasted around twenty minutes rambling about nothing. So it's back to reality and the reality is an exam at 3pm tomorrow.
