Its Show Time!

Dress Rehearsal Week sucks! There's not much else to say about it. Not only am I not getting home until midnight every night after 4-5 hours of "dancing" and "singing," but I'm paying more for parking than I have had for the rest of my law school career (I normally never drive to school, but my bus doesn't run that late at night... so now I have to pay for parking all day at school, and then for 5 hours at the St. Paul Student center for rehearsal).

Oh well... at least the show's coming together. I still don't know if it will be as funny as last year (although that is a pretty high bar), but it will be funny.

Why don't you just park in the law school lot and wait until after 11:00 or midnight when the guy leaves? Free parking!

because he has to drive from the law school to St. Paul to do rehearsal...

There are literally hundreds of free street parking spots within three blocks of the Student Center. Maybe you should use those?

I think the show may be marginally worse this year than it was last year. By one person. In the 2nd Act chorus. You.

I agree, last year's was really phenomenal, but I think this year's is just about as awesome. As for parking, there are indeed lots of street parking spots around the student center, within about a 3-mile radius. It's worth it to drive around looking and then take a hike from your spot.

Anonymous 2... I am very unlucky when it comes to street parking (I have only been able to find a spot once during rehearsal week). But even with free parking at the Student Center, I still have to pay for parking in the Ramp here at the law school. It's no biggie, I'm just not used to paying for parking (I'm a suburban guy at heart).

Anonymous 3. Only marginally worse? Woo-Hoo! All my rehearsing is paying off. Earlier in the week, I thought I would be lucky to get all the way up to "He's so brave for even showing his face in school after that performance."

Anonymous 4 - To me, it isn't worth the 20 minutes or more it takes to look for a spot and then hike up to the Student Center. Remember, in a few short years, we will be attorneys whose time is much more valuable than the few dollers it takes to pay for parking. That 20 minutes will be worth about $100 in billable time.

Yes, but it'll be worth $100 to your employer, not you. You get nothing from working more time except, most likely, the feeling that you want to work less

OK anonymous. You spend 20 extra minutes looking for parking (and then 10 more minutes walking back to your car after work). I'll spend 30 more minutes with my family every day because I got to work earlier.

And what do you think that money transferred into your bank account every two weeks is for... not working as many hours as you can?
