In the Beginning

Ah, ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you two unique groups.

The first: Baylor's 1Q's.  They are bright and shiny, happy, excited about The Law.  Rah rah for them.

The second: Baylor's 6Qs, 7Qs, and 8Qs.  They are a little duller, sadder, and sedated about law than are the 1Qs.  They are entering the PC Cave.  Unless you witness for them---which you should---you probably won't see them again until August.  It's too late now to say your goodbyes.

The 1Qs are learning the prose of the law: nouns and pronouns, verbs and adverbs, sentence structure, and the like.  Those entering the PC Cave are learning the poetry of the law: iambic pentameter and blank verse.

I wish I could tell you how great it feels to be post-PC.

And a third group of people... Those 9Q's who are showing up to class whenever they feel like it, sitting on the back row, not buying the book, sometimes taking notes, hoping that "GS" on the final really does equal "A".

Yeah, I can't tell anybody how good it is to be post PC.

Shhh . . . I'm trying to keep our---I mean their---existence a secret . . .

As one of the infamous 1Qs... there was nothing shiny or happy that first day. Just lots of pain, really. Though admittedly, there were some like that. I was one of two girls not bouncing down the hallway in a pair of heels, nice clothes and makeup at 8am. the classes are all pretty interesting so far, though.

When we started, there were several girls who dressed "cute" pretty frequently, maybe 3-4 times per week. By the time we finished PC, the number had diminished severely. There were 3-4 girls who dressed cute maybe 1 time per week.
