Only in Law School

7. Seven. VII. Semesters. That's a very long time in law student years. It has been a roller coaster. Let's look at what all things happen 'Only in law school'

Here goes.
1. People will start fearing you as soon as you get into a law school. I am talking about all your other non-law friends.
2. The fatter the course handout the more satisfying the feeling after you complete it in one night.
3. Friends are few. Find them. Keep them close. Don't worry about enemies. They'll try to come close as well.
4. Food at home becomes tastier. A lot more tastier.
5. Sleeping is a luxury. Unless you are in class. Then its an art.
6. Contrary to popular opinion, your love for books will go up, albeit only for the non academic ones.
7. Arguing over trivial things will seem like a hobby. Everyone around you will do it and enjoy it.
8. You might be inclined to make contracts for everything from asking your girlfriend to give more time to you to making a plan for a trip with your best friend to the procedure and sequence of going to fill water bottles.
9. All your non-law friends will think you are like God and can save them if they rape someone or kill someone. Tell them you will. It makes them happy. :P
10. You will keep food locked up but will keep your Macbook Pro out in the open.
11. You will be able to say 'briefs' our loud without being embarrassed.
12. You will tell people that you will sue them if they did something and then laugh in your head about how you can never do that.
13. If you tell anyone you want to become a criminal lawyer, they will imagine a gun stuck to your belt.
14. You will learn how not to be afraid of fat books because you know that 'sabun ke shakal mein, ye to hai jhag'. #Delhibelly
15. Your creative writing skills will improve. Exams will be the reason.
16. You will try to prove everything, irrespective of how unreasonable it sounds. Just for kicks.
17. Friendship over mutual hatred is common place.
18. Relationships for some people are like class coordinators. They change every year.
19. Multi Tasking will become a necessity.
20. You will learn that you are not as awesome as you thought you were.
Phew, I think I mentally went back to the first semester to write down all this. I am sure you can come up with some as well.
Please do share. :)
