halfrican_hoops22 My favorite Dean sent me a good luck letter. I went through a tough time at one point, trying to balance 16 credit hours of law school, 55 hours of work with no days off, semi pro basketball, rehabbing my ACL and way too much other stuff. This Dean called me to her office, I was terrified thinking I was gonna get yelled at for being too busy for law school, instead she told me a rocks and sand metaphor. She said rocks are important things: love, family, god, friends, school, work, bills, etc. Sand is chores that can wait, friends that are associates, unimportant to do lists, keeping random people happy, things like that. Take a vase, put your rocks in, then put the sand in, the sand fits in where it should and falls into place. Now, take that same vase, put the sand in first, only a few rocks fit, if any, because you gotta take care of the important things in life and stop worrying about unimportant sand, because when you have time, and you will eventually, the sand will fall into place. She cared, when she didn't have to, she told me what I needed to hear...to get my priorities in order because stupid stuff will figure itself out. After that day, she emailed me to see how I was, she had other meetings with me, she visited me at work...we laughed, we talked, she mentored me, she made me better. She did this until the day I graduated, in which she hugged me before graduation and told me how excited she was to read my name as I crossed the stage. She may not know the influence she had in my education and future, but I do, and then when the bar exam is 2 days away and stress is at an all time high, I get this letter, hand written so I know it's real. I had two ride or die people at my LawSchool and she was one of them. I cannot wait for the day that I pass the bar, get a job that I love, take her to lunch and tell her all about it, and thank her, because she is one of the reasons that I made it this far. Little things that mean so much 3d

halfrican_hoops22 It irritates me that I understand this. Like why are exceptions longer than the general rule? Why would you have two assignee's anyway?! Ugh, I hate contract law more than property law. #BarPrep 2w
