I’m not sure if anyone is still reading this, but I wanted to post a link to my brother’s blog.  He’s in Uganda for a year, the recipient of a generous scholarship from the Rotary Club, pursing a Master’s degree at Makerere University and living in the Kampala community.  He has a background in non-profit work (he used to work for the Bank Information Center, a World Bank watchdog group) and he spends part of his time speaking to groups about the Rotary Club and his work at the BIC.

I’m obviously biased, but I find his posts about daily life and his travels in the region (most recently to Sudan), incredibly interesting and thoughtful.  Most of us are starting our legal jobs, and his work sounds worlds away from what I imagine most of us are doing…

…that if they were going to take off whole points from essay grades when you don’t cite Extract provisions, all the lecturers wouldn’t be so lackadaisical in their advice about extract use ("just use it as an issue checklist, you should just answer based on your knowledge, maybe you could pick up a bit of organizational credit"). Wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t you?

I guess a graded essay with a score of "3" is their way of putting us – from the shaking heads I saw around the auditorium, all of us – on notice. Surely there’s a better way.

Just when you thought the lectures are in a downward spiral of unbearableness, you notice that someone 4 rows ahead of you is watching a DVD. Not just checking the ESPN, maintaining an iChat, or incessantly texting a Significant Other, but full-on Watching A Movie. Ok, so it’s Legally Blonde, but come on, that won’t really help you with the Maryland distinctions for Crim. (Screenwriters couldn’t even get the prevailing party right in basic-ass Gordon v. Steele, anyone remember Day 1 of Schrag? /dork)

So you start thinking to yourself, Awesome, that’s one person who isn’t gonna be doing better than me!

And then you realize it’s just the 10-year-old kid of the woman taking studious notes next to her. Oh well…
