Finally, that chapter of my life is over. I'd make a joke or say something witty, but...what does it even matter? I just want to rest.

Done!!!! And I don't have to worry about the writing competition, because I never bothered to learn Bluebooking, so I'm not doing it. So while some of you may have promising futures, I'll have a couple extra days to drink this summer.

Done with my in class finals.....have one take home con law final left. I could in theory have been done by now, but I am deciding to do it right before it's due. :D

Oh, and then two days later starts the CLR write-on competition.....so technically, I won't be done until almost June.

. . . but damn it feels good doesn't it? Even the write on seems easy without classes everyday. Two weeks and one write on is like a vacation.

So, for all of you doing the write-on competiton.....are you doing this as a safety in case you do not grade on or do you have to do both? I just took the risk. If I'm not in the top 10, I'm just not going to do law review, simple as that man. :)

That's the case at my school as well. Except I'm not really unhappy about it. The standards are lower if you're in the top 10%, so there's still an advantage. But they want to know that you are good at the writing and editing aspects required of being on a journal, not just someone who happens to be good at law exams.

Then the school should do a Top 10%/top half for LRW kind of thing, I guess unless you have pass/fail LRW.

Yeah... I am a journalist and I was hoping for the bump but at my school only top 7 percent get the bump, and Iam not there and will most likely not be there at the end of this semester.

Done, and watched fifty gazillion hours of TV in a row yesterday instead of cracking open my bluebook. I had a hangover, so I'm excused, right?

I've been finished for a couple days, but still haven't had more than one drink! It really sucks when everyone leaves almost instantly... I mean, I guess I could go to a bar and be that random 24 year old dude talking to 19 year old rising sophomores, but that seems neither productive nor prudent, even if they're hot. Especially if they're hot.
