So there are some actually interesting things going on in my life.

First, hah. I've finished the sequel to my Big Bang now as well -- 33,500 words in six chapters. I have two one-shot side-stories defining themselves further in my head right now, and I expect those to come out within the next few weeks. I pretty much definitely have an actual universe going here, which is so awesome. Also, that universe already has a current word count of 110,000+ words, which is also awesome. I don't think I've ever written that much (purely in word count) in any single fandom, only counting complete fics. Star Wars is approaching that total, but it took me a lot longer than two months to get that far. And given the other Star Trek fics I've already written, that's 120,000+ words, and only going to continue to go up.

Hah. Not that anyone else cares about my word counts, I'm sure. But I'm amazed, so :p.

Second, I have my class schedule for next year. You know, I've known that this is happening for months, but now it finally feels real. I look at the classes on my schedule and realize that I'm actually going to be taking those.

First semester I'm taking Constitutional Law, Contracts, Legal Writing and Research, and Torts. Second semester I have Criminal Justice, more Legal Writing and Research, Civil Procedure, Property, and an elective.

I am...trying not to be terrified.

I am, at least, getting back into the school swing of things starting next week, since I signed up to take a macroeconomics class at my local public university, mostly because I think it'll help the study of law in some way to understand how economic systems work. I just hope it'll be interesting, though, whether or not it ends up being especially useful.

But mostly I'm at the point where I keep thinking, oh my god I'm starting law school in less than two months. I have to write as much as I possibly can before that happens! :p

I really need some sort of law school icon. Hmmm.

From personal experience, I'd say that Torts and Property are the most interesting, that Contracts is the most difficult of the branches of law, and that Legal Writing and Research is the toughest, period. (Knowing how to write well definitely does NOT help in Legal Writing.)

Here, have a poem!

When one talks of hereditaments, misprisions and indentures,
Of chattels and of mortgages, of choses and debentures,
Of assumpsit, debt and covenant, of trespass and attainders,
Of writs of habeas corpus, of reversions and remainders,
Of attaching and conveyancing, of signing and indorsing,
Of femes, both sole and covert, separating and divorcing,
Of words of twenty letters, which you'd think would break his jaw,
You will then know that the fellow's just begun to study law.

(No idea who wrote it--it appears to have been published anonymously--but it dates back to 1892, at least.)

That poem is both amazing and scary. Well, I suppose I will actually learn what all of that is... :p
