I Stand Before You, A Free Man...


The gauntlet has been run.

I came. I saw. I shat on some pieces of paper with unrealistic questions on them.

I am now officially a 3L.

One more year of this soul sucking exercise and I'll finally be qualified to take an exam that will allow me to add an ESQ at the end of my name.

Like anyone cares.

Expect the normal, everyday assault on your superior intellects to resume Monday.

Possibly sooner.

It depends on how much beer my credit cards can buy between now and then [ just kidding, Mom, hehe :-) ].

Lost season finale tonight, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Might wanna fire up the DVR, though...

Go Pens.


Bruce Boudreau is ready for you, Geno. Ice it.

Congrats, Cotter! I can't believe how fast the time is flying. (for me, anyway)

Marc said...

Congrats on coming out of the closet!

Wait a second... I mean on finishing up finals. 2/3 years done, light is at the end of the tunnell.

Now get drinking

tiny350Z said...

Congrats! And welcome back. It will be good to be assaulted. I mean, what?

Go Pens!

Good work, Cotter. And I thought you died or something.

On a note completely related to adding a three-letter title at the end of one's name, as of two days ago, I am officially "Random Asshole, Ph.D."

Fuck yeah, bitches.

Congrats Cotter and Dr. Random Assshole!!

Lets Go Pens!

Grumpy said...

Congrats and welcome back. You're daily thoughts have been missed. DVR set for Lost, which has lately left me feeling lost.

Noah said...

Hope that credit card has an unlimited limit....

ladi_izz said...

Congrats Cotter! With the long absence, I thought you drank yourself in a coma.

@ Random- Put that on a business card and send me one. Please!

Game 7 of Pens vs. Caps and the season finale of Lost tonight, I may be an emotional wreck this evening.

Good luck man. I just finished my third year. Be prepared for the worst burnout ever in the last semester. The third year feels like a scam benefiting the ABA and whatever school you're at. You learn so much more from working with practitioners, but you still have to go through the motions at school.

matt said...

Congrats fella!

Maybe we'll drink some beers soon?

tecmo said...

Great vid. But you shoulda went with Shawshank when Andy escapes.

Cotter crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness I can't even imagine, or maybe I just don't want to. Five hundred yards... that's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile.

random asshole said...

"Cotter crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness I can't even imagine..."

Of course he did. He lives in New Jersey.

Cotter said...

Yeah, that morass is called the Hudson River. PS - response comments to come...

Comment sent from iPhone.

tecmo said...

Cotter, I was just about to say the same thing. You COULD say that taking the PATH under about 500 yards of the Hudson would be akin to crawling through shit.

Cotter said...

plus you have to ride with NJites, so...

tecmo said...

burn

tiny350Z said...

I'm from Jersey. And I don't smell.

Congrats to Dr. Random Asshole, too!

Cotter said...

tc ~ Gracias, duder! Pens win! What a game 7!

joy ~ Seriously, it feels like time has stood still since September of 2007. What a weird run it's been. But with a year left, I can almost feel the life being breathed back into me.

marc ~ I'll bet that's what you say to all the bloggers, isn't it? Thanks for the congrats, brotha!

tiny ~ To be fair, you can't really prove that over the internets :) Ah, jokes. Thanks for the congrats!!

dr. asshole ~ Well done, man. Congratulations! Now, when the hell are you moving back to civilization?

domski ~ What would Sidney Crosby do?

grumpy ~ Thanks for the warm welcome! Lost season finale = legendary.

noah ~ Yeah, you and me both, meng! Don't worry, I'll push it to the limit.

ladi izz ~ Haha, well at least that was a pretty good guess. Now that I'm done, that's exactly what I plan to do. High five!

joshua ~ Congratulations!! I honestly can't even wait. Even this year seemed like somewhat of a waste. Of course, I guess I could say the same about the entire experience, on a bad day at least. But whatevs...

matt ~ Yes, beers. Do it.

So, um, what'd I miss???
