So who do you think is going to be the EIC of Law Journal next year? I have some idea of who’s got the brains, and I have some idea of who has the political wherewithal, but I don’t know who’s going to be able to put it all together and reach the coveted OSJL throne. So throw some gossip at me!
It’s funny…it wasn’t but six months ago that I was fantasizing about having one of those little offices in the journal suite…oh the glory…the accolades…the laurels…the big money…the cheap soda. Then I discovered that being in the top, ya know, 10.5% of the class doesn’t get you on journal. Is this the real reason I burned out? Do I only have the patience to play games I can win? I probably won’t really know until I look back many years from now.
So right now I feel 100% better than I did, say, three months ago. How much better do I feel than six or seven months ago when I thought I was “winning”? I dunno, maybe only 80% better. For right now, at least, I’m very happy that I quit.
