Final Final

Wills is tonight.

I really like the concept of wills, and think this is the area of law that might best suit me, asking incongruous questions about things that people don't really think should matter about their property but it does because the state decides it does and then charging them an exorbitant fee to get them to sign a piece of paper (I kid). But I'm really nervous about this final. I took over 115 pages of notes for this class, and I'm still not quite clear on what we learned. That's a scary thing to be thinking when you go into a final. While I am quite fond of my professor on a personal level, I'm afraid that her effectiveness at instructing has fallen by the wayside over the years.

In other news, I need to plan my summer. This is the last summer I have in law school, as next year I get to spend studying for the bar. Probably the Texas Bar, but it could be somewhere else (WA, MI, IN, OH, who knows). That's going to be a fun ride. Anyway, I've got my job, which I go back to on Friday. I'm not fond of the job; the practice encompasses fields with which I'm not comfortable dealing or where I'm not interested in practicing. The lawyer is nice, and she's really helpful teaching me the things I need to operate in a law office, but the environment isn't right for me. So I've got six weeks left on my probationary period. At some point, probably next week or the week after, I'm going to let her know that I'm not going to stay with the practice. I want to give her the chance to get someone else hired and spun up before I take off. Then July comes, and we're thinking of taking a trip to Michigan and Indiana. We'll see how that goes. I'm not going to comment much on that right now, especially because I need to get back to wills.

BTW, don't ask for your estate to pay off your "just debts" in your will, because that includes everything that you owe, including debts forgiven by bankruptcy and claims that are barred by the statute of limitations.

Good luck with your final and all the decisions you have to make. Personally, I am very fond of Washington after being here 5 years. *grin*
