    That is definitely it. Law school shapes what your idea of success is due to the people you surround yourself with everyday.

    Nature Photo/Videographer. Leaning more towards the experiences, getting to travel and going up close with wildlife than the technical aspects though.

    you mean you want to get up close with burgey

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    To find a passion for something that has a solid future in it, not quite nutty enough about music to go down that route for now. Adding strings to my bow etc. Would also like to, in 10 or so years, be able to look back on myself and say: "you know what? I wasn't a ****."

    Theoretically, I can think "what would benchmark00 do" and just avoid whatever that is.

    Avoiding your mother would cause problems at home though.

    Indeed. Lived with a couple of law students in my second year (both female) and their law school "friends" were, by and large, an absolute shower of wankers.

    The fact that most were blatantly trying to shag said hoisemates might've exaggerated the impression, but they were either braying public school ****s or relentless and slightly chippy social climbers.

    same pinch ikki. am a film producer. but more interested in writing and directing though. have made a couple of films but nothing as good as "citizen kane" or "raging bull" yet. getting there is the ambition.
