The Legally Blunt's way of greeting you a Happy Holiday :))

Hello all,

Before everyone goes on leave I wanted to send some sort of Christmas holiday greeting to friends and colleagues, but it is difficult in today’s world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with a lawyer yesterday, and on his advice I wish to say the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non addictive, gender neutral celebration of the summer solstice holiday practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

Date an Immature guy they said, It will be fun they said ...

You should date an immature guy. You can find them in every size, shape, colour, and age anyway. Don't even be surprised if your immature guy is in his 30's and you are his lesser in age by a half a decade or more. Age is no real determining factor for the man plagued with unprecedented, eternal immaturity. You can find them in all sorts of places. At blockbuster, on his bike, at the corner store buying a bag of chips, or by the lake, mindlessly skipping rocks in to the water. But chances are you'll probably meet him at a pub, when you're already drunk and willing to cut him just enough slack for being so inept (only because it makes for a better excuse later down the road when you find yourself sitting completely shell-shocked at the realization that you’ve been grueling over a child trapped in the heavy guise of a man, or even worse, bewildered over the fact that you always knew this but chose to live in denial).

Date a Girl Who Reads

by Rosemarie Urquico 
(In response to Charles Warnke’s You Should Date an Illiterate Girl)

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.

When I got called for the first time to recite...

I was like: 

The People You Will Fall In Love With In Your 20s.

By Ryan O’Connell

You will fall in love with someone who annoys you, whose orgasm face looks and feels pathetic. Despite all of this, there’s something keeping you drawn to them, something that makes you want to protect them from the harsh world. What you fail to realize, however, is that you are the harsh world. You aren’t their noble protector — you are someone to be protected from but it takes a lot of dates, a lot of nights where you question whether or not you are actually a good person, for this to ever resonate with you. When it’s over and whatever love is left is put back in the fridge like a sad plate of leftovers, you will finally understand that you have the power to hurt someone. You can either hurt them or love them and it’s up to you to decide what kind of role you would like to take on in future relationships. What feels more comfortable — being the one who loves more or being the one who’s loved less?
You will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. When all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. Unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win. And when we lose, when we realize we couldn’t get what we ultimately desired from a person, it makes us feel like a failure and erases all the memories of those who loved us in the past. It’s a permanent smudge on your love resume.

“I hope that when you look at the Bill of Rights, you don’t just gloss over them. Because the truth is, ladies and gentlemen, someone was put into jail, someone was tortured, and someone actually had to die, for those words to be written there.”

Pao Magno's Criminal Procedure professor, in his marathon lecture, explaining how the Bill of Rights is a product of blood and tears. 
“Law school taught me one thing: how to take two situations that are exactly the same and show how they are different.”


Feeling bored? Apathetic? Is the best part about your law degree skipping class to lunch with friends?
You know assessments and exams will be here to ruin your early semester reverie soon enough, but you’re feeling uninspired. It was exciting back when you started this crazy little thing called law, but this semester you like law school about as much as Voldemort liked Harry Potter. No wonder you’re pretty keen to bail. But should you?
Here are some reasons to tough it out...


When you enrolled in law you were thrilled at the prospect of becoming a legal legend – like Denny Crane, or the slightly nefarious Cleaver Greene. But now you would rather become just about anything other than a lawyer… and that’s cool too.

How to Date a Law Student:

Make Love Notes Long and Confusing
Brevity and clarity make law school students feel uncomfortable and agitated, much like normal people feel at the DMV. For example, don’t say, “Let’s head back home early for some fun.” Instead say, “Let’s return early to the domicile for some malfeasance.”

As a law student, the two feelings that I’m constantly swinging between.

Leave of Absence From Law School

                              03 December 2012

Dean, College of Law
Polytechnic University of the Philippines
Sta Mesa, Manila


This is to inform you that, I, Jocelle Osana G. Dela Cruz, a freshman student from LLB 1-6 of Polytechnic University of the Philippines, College of Law, Sta. Mesa, Manila have successfully accomplished the First Semester of Academic year 2012-2013.

I handled to survive the 1st semester despite all the circumstances I faced along the way, however, due to our family's financial problem, I will not be able to enroll for the 2nd semester which is a very painful decision on my part since going to law school and the stress it brings have been part of my daily routine.
