People are really weirded out if you express that you think your relationship is probably not going to last forever, and yet you aren’t on the verge of breaking up. Like it’s the possibility of forever or else nothing, which is stupid.
Oh hey, btw, I got mugged.
I got mugged on Wednesday night at my apartment complex. I didn’t get hurt, I’m not going to recount all the details what happened for the billionth time right now, they were dumb and inexperienced but there were 2 of them and I got sort of cornered so I just gave my purse to them, which was inconvenient for me but terribly unfruitful for them, as the only thing of value in it was my...
Sometimes I love her, sometimes I hate her, often both at the same time.

Found a puppy that I want.
I cannot get a puppy.
The dreaded paper.
I turned it in, I survived, I did not get hit by lightning or die, and I don’t believe it will fail the good faith effort test. But realizing that the root of my mental problems is anxiety (I was a super anxious little kid, too) and I’ve been procrastinating for the last couple decades to avoid it kind of opened the floodgates of anxiety on me (go figure) and turned me into an...
And now I’m trying not to have a breakdown in the library. What the hell is my problem? I haven’t even gotten to the really stressful parts of law school yet, they are just about to start. And thinking about that makes it even worse, and I don’t know what it is about this damn paper that is making me want to dig in and not face it, just like every other paper, ever, but I have...
This paper has led me to a super obvious insight.
As I was having a panic attack last night over this practice memo which is graded on completion and good faith effort at revision (no big deal, right) and being really mean to myself about having procrastinated all day, and asking myself what was wrong with me, I realized that procrastination, as well as drinking, snacking, and compulsively picking at scabs (sorry, gross, I know) are really...

This article is great. My favorite quotations: Part of me still sees Ashok’s existence on this planet as a result of my parents not wanting me to be bored. The possibility that he could have a life and destiny unconnected to my own seemed absurd. Older siblings can be assholes. Instead of celebrating our father’s birthday, May 29, 2011, his two ungrateful sons, the singer...

Can we please have a class on privilege, and...
And make it mandatory for all 1st year law students everywhere? I think it’s a problem, and that if they did a good job of it, the eyes of a lot of smart, good, privileged people would be opened and the legal system and politics might change ever so slightly faster. Most law school students are privileged, and in all kinds of ways. The main thing I’ve noticed is that it’s...
My experience riding the bus has led me to believe there is at least a 60% chance that any time I see two undergraduate white dudes together, one of them is going to say something terrible. I was thinking about this as I walked up to the bus stop today, since two undergrad looking white dudes were there. And sure enough, right as I approached, one of the dudes said, voice dripping with disgust: ...
Whether yes or no, he is driving me crazy.
