    Where is the Line?
    I had a professor in my first year of law school who I purposefully took a class from in my 3rd, b/c I liked her so much.

    A couple of weeks ago, I was walking through the park with the girls, and I ran into her. It was the weekend before exams. (And a funny side story, b/c I am Zuska, while I was on the way to cello with the girls, a school-friend called to ask me a question about either IP or Securities, and I said, "well, I have that answer in my outline, but I'm actually on the T with the girls right now, heading to cello practice" and my friend was all aflutter. It hadn't occurred to her that the weekend before exams could be spent doing anything but exams, and was quite thrown off. She told me the next day that she told her mom about the phone call, and that she felt bad for "interrupting" my mom-duties. Her mom told her - you are always doing mom-duties. It's not really an "interruption" to bring something else up, otherwise, you'd never do anything else!)

    Anyway. My professor.

    She told me that day that she had moved to the area, and that we're now in the same neighborhood.

    I saw her again today.

    Today, she has my exam in her possession, and will be grading it shortly, if not already. It is a blind grading for exams, but not for the overall class as a whole (i.e., class participation, the mid term drafting project we did, etc.)

    So I didn't talk to her much. I said hi and some cordial statement about the weather and the bar, but I didn't engage in a conversation. It felt like it would be weird, if not completely inappropriate.

    The other day, Beloved found a really funny ditty on Parody as Fair Use in Copyright Law, and I wanted to send it to this professor, b/c she had used some mixed media in the class, and this would have been f-u-n-n-y. But then last minute, I threw away the e-mail, b/c --- well, I remembered she has my exam.

    I'm thinking I was right to ditch the e-mail, but probably could have done more chatting in the park.

      In the beginning, I thought chatting up the profs, sending cute emails, etc. was so tacky and kiss-ass. Then I realized so many folks at school do it anyway and due to the curve, that was actually negatively affecting my grade. I became "that" student toward the end. Although a part of me felt dirty, the other part rather enjoyed looking at those A's. Send the email.
