Submitted by MGoCooper on January 20th, 2012 at 8:30 PM

Happy Friday fellas, what are you drinking/sipping on tonight?



RIP to Etta James


I'll tip this Johnny Walker back in your honor.

Sangria from last night, Commodore Perry from last weekend, and some Jerimiah Weed from the back of the fridge. If I make it through that without megangoblue yelling at me to quit drinking, I have a cheap Sauvignon Blanc that would be nice to try.

Highland Park scotch

FWIW, if anyone ever doubts the effect of alcohol on your ability to perform tasks, have a few scotches and try to play Modern Warfare 3. I've been relegated to noob status.

I don't mean to freak you out, but instead to give perspective. 

I got my bar card this past Nov (same as BISB I imagine), and then a job in practice.  And 3 months in, I'm looking back on law school like it was a 3 year extension of undergrad.  Practice is a truly miserable experience, at least for me.  The stress/stakes are high, and the hours are very long. 

I guess my advice is to think more flexibly about the credential and your job opportunities when you finally attain it.  And don't let the economy force you into desperation.  Those are easy things to say, but not to do.  Hell even I couldn't even do it when I knew it was best.  Failure to do so will lead to great weariness/heaviness.

I absolutely don't mean to discourage though; quitting = incredible sunk cost/burden.  I agree with BISB here.  You're committed - now it's time to be creative and figure out a situation you can tolerate.
