When did 9pm become early?
As I read this article about how education is connected to longer life and better health, I can't help but think that law school is the exception. Law school, after all, leads to lawyering for many of us. Putting in twelve billables means pretty much sitting on your ass at least twelve hours that day. And, if you're like me, you're sitting down in front of the computer, probably a little slouched over, getting carpal tunnel. You order food on the firm's/client's dime, and you are munching as you're huddled over your work. You are too tired to go to the gym, and, anyway, who wants to go to the gym after midnight? You're likely sleep deprived and have waning relationships with all of the people who mean the most to you because you keep having to "wait another 15 minutes and we'll know" or "finish this up; it needed to be done yesterday." Yeah, I'm a little disgruntled. Could you tell?
