Getting Ready for Hong Kong

Sorry for the radio silence over the last few days. I'm getting my stuff together to go to Hong Kong. The trip is the hardest of hard deadlines, and before I leave on Friday, I have to:

  • Hand in clerkship information
  • Finish the research and pro-bono projects I put off until after exams
  • Go to a Westlaw course today
  • Purchase some sunglasses, casual clothing, and maybe even splurge and get some sandals before I head off to Hong Kong

Also, this is my last chance to see friends and loved ones before I head off. So it'll be a busy week, and updates might be scarce. On the other hand, I should have internet access in my apartment when I'm in Hong Kong, so you'll hear from me more regularly there.


Okay, the greedy & ambition of the clerkship process is a little misguided because it just means you make less money for a year. The sloth of putting off work? Check. Westlaw... well, just call that a sin. Why not. And the vanity of clothes-shopping, definitely. But where in the job description does seeing friends and loved ones come in? What happened to you, man? You used to be about the perfidy, avarice and wrath. You've changed. Best of luck, and enjoy the summer!
