Anonymous asked: what is the best christmas present you have ever gotten?
Great question, anon! Although the best present I have ever received was not a Christmas gift, it was given to me over the summer and it was my little bunny Alice. The reason being was that I had been having a very difficult time with life in general. Law school was weighing heavily on me, my boyfriend and I had broken up, I was going through some health problems, and was suffering from depression in general. I found it hard to get out of bed some days. Having noticed this, my mother and brother came into my room one day with a box while I was sleeping (as I did frequently). They told me I had received something in the mail. Half asleep, I told them to put it on my desk because it was probably a textbook. They insisted I open the box right away. I was frustrated a little, but I opened it and there was this little, scared, quivering thing in the corner just staring at me. She was so vulnerable and afraid. I was told she was the last bunny left. I scooped her up and immediately felt as though I was needed. I had a purpose. It was to take care of this precious little life. I was nervous as hell, given that I had no idea how to take care of a bunny. We had only ever had dogs. I researched more than I have ever done in my life to make sure she was going to be the most well taken care of bunny on the planet. I have had Alice for about 8 months now and I cannot explain how significantly my life has changed. All because of a bunny. I come home some days, succumbing to the rigors of school or even depression and I see this little face at the door of her house, wanting to get out to crawl on me. My anxieties and woes disappear when she snuggles up beside me and closes her eyes to be loved on. She even senses when there is something wrong with me and will investigate by crawling up and nudging my face. I know this was probably a lot longer of a response than you were seeking, but I felt it necessary to share because I see so many of my tumblr friends suffering from the same depression and anxieties I face. I cannot emphasize enough how much more therapeutic Alice has been to me than any of my medications. I had never been so low in my life until that day my special little gift arrived, changing my life forever.
This is my brother holding little Alice moments after I got her. I can never be more thankful to my brother and mother for adopting this baby for me.
I hate the way law school grades shit. There are only a certain number of A’s they can give out by rule. You basically have to beat your friends to get it, even if you get about the same number grade. A professor is “not allowed” to give more than 10% of the students a grade above the curve (which is a B-). They also HAVE to have a certain number of students below the curve no matter what. What the actual fuck?
