Are We In The Wrong Profession?

One of the advantages of having a spouse that works for an airline is the ability to fly anywhere for ridiculously cheap1. So, when we found out the Law School was giving us poor schlubs a four day weekend for President's Day2, we decided to go somewhere. The flights for our first choices3 were full, so we settled on Charleston, SC. So we spent some time in the shadows of the Old South and learned about the first shots of the Civil War (Fort Sumter), and got the hear the absurd statement "If you had to be a slave, it was good to be a slave at this Plantation" (Magnolia Plantation).

It was fun. Fun to go somewhere for a vacation, even if just for a day and a half. Fun to spend time with my wife and act like a normal human being. Just fun to be away from the hustle and the bustle4 of law school. But, now I have to pay for it with reading assignments, a Con Law paper, and Legal Writing Brief, and outlining. There really is no such thing as a free lunch.
