Ruth: Things That Aren't a Good Idea
June 11, 2005 10:17 PM
The following things do not qualify as good judgment calls:
I mourn for the wide-spread loss of common sense. Mourn for it.
Please keep posting your "journal entries." You've just finished your first year at law school, correct? Also, you're interning with a federal judge this summer, correct? --We have those two things in common. I start my internship tomorrow, so wish me luck!
Good luck on your internship. District Court? Appeals? Magistrate? Details, details.
I will probably do another "diary" entry or two (or more) over the summer, but I don't want to overdo it. I've written a Bridget Jones parody in the past in another context, and while I love the format and style, if one isn't careful, it can get old. But yeah, the more time I spend in the court house and the more I learn about things that go on, the more I'll be able to play around and fictionalize it more. (Way too long an explanation there.) Glad you enjoyed it though. I had fun writing it.
Be sure to keep us posted on your internship as well.
