Days Until I Am No Longer A 1L:

Game on

Apparently somebody thinks it has been too long since I last posted, so I will share a few words with you. I have to keep my readers happy, after all.

The weather has finally turned nice here in the nation's capitol. It was 80 degrees without a cloud in the sky today. This can mean only one thing - the girls around campus have broken out their summer wardrobes. Thankfully, the law school has a patio that overlooks one of the only green spaces on the campus, which also happens to be a major thoroughfare to and from school. This gives me and my friends a perfect opportunity to relax between classes while enjoying the weather and "observing the scenery" if you get my drift. Unfortunately, there is a down side to this. For every attractive, scantily clad undergraduate girl, there is...wait for it...

the per se douchebag.

You know what I am talking about. This specimen is quite easy to identify. Identifying marks include: the popped collar on his polo shirt, either the trucker hat turned sideways or the disgustingly dirty fraternity hat worn backwards, the shorts sagging so low you can see his Abercrombie boxers, the Tom Cruise style aviator sunglasses, multiple "Livestrong" style bracelets and sandals that, while they look like they would weigh almost nothing, are apparently so heavy that they prevent him from picking his feet up as he shuffles across the quad. This guy presents an irrebuttable presumption of douchebaggery. When not shuffling across campus with an "I'm too cool for everybody" look on his face, this guy can be seen driving around in the Range Rover with the DMB sticker in the back window that daddy bought for him. In other words, this guy sucks.

In order to celebrate the rediculousness of this guy, we are making next Monday "Per Se Monday." Everyone is going to dress up in their most obnoxious, douchebaggish, frattastic clothes just so we can see what it is like to be as cool as these guys for a day. And after we all show up to school and have a good laugh, we are going to quickly realize that we all look like tools and change back to normal. presentable human beings. It should be fun.
