Thinking about the whole thing about what PlayItAgainSam said on yesterday's comment, that reminded me of how Legally Blonde all came about. The woman who wrote the book, Amanda Brown, was basically in the same position as I'm in now. Ok, ok, maybe it's not exactly the same.
So good ole Mandy Brown was a law student just like us. However, I'm guessing she must not have been a very good one, because she spent all her time writing letters to her friends back home about the things she experienced in law school, even during class. That seems pretty daring. I know here there are some people who do the crossword in class.
Anyway, apparently she was such a gifted writer and wrote so entertainingly that it became a weekly ritual for her friends to get together every week and read her letters together. Now that is what I call a readership!
I mean, think about it. She was basically writing about the same kinds of things we are, but she was really lucky enough to get two movies and books out of the whole deal. When I hear about people like this, it makes me wonder why I'm still in law school. Brown dropped out of law school and never got her J.D. as far as I'm aware of.
It reminds me of what that Career Services woman told us: the highest earning alum from this school is a beader, dealing with making wedding tiaras or something like that. Maybe I really am stupid after all, since it seems that there is more than one path to riches and a satisfying life.
