are you sure this dream wasn't about torts? did a random woman on the train platform get hurt as well?

:lol: :lol: :lol:


Mrs. Palsgraf was not in my dream! I will harm you all! People have made suggestions about what the destination was, and whether I can still get there. Maybe there was an Acela coming up behind this train.

No this is a Con Law dream, the train was going into Arizona and they kicked you off because they needed to shorten the length. Dormant commerce clause ftw.

I object! No train with me on it was going to Arizona.

You've created that rare thing on TLS: A self-sustaining thread. Let's see how long it lasts. You've got a long long way to go to even be considered in the same breath as Banter or BP though.

Having gotten one grade back in a class I did extremely well in last semester...these fears aren't irrational. :/

damn it, I had a dream I was back in finals week(s). I woke up really disoriented and thinking I had to go study property.

There isn't an ounce of exaggeration in that statement. You see why my fears are rational.

I don't think this was even photoshopped, and it captures the mood delightfully:

I seriously need a miracle on Wednesday. Any odds I'm going to get one?

I'm terrified. I'm pretty sure this semester was a giant fail, and I'm sad that I pretty much have no shot left at the career I was hoping for. I'm glad that I happened upon this thread, though - I've just been wallowing alone in a pool of misery since about a week before finals.

Someone to commiserate with! You can't possibly have screwed up more than I did, but sending <3 anyway.

Oh, thanks OS! <3 to you, too. I bet you were great! I felt like I didn't know nearly as much going into exams this time, though, and there was so much more material this semester! I pulled all-nighters before Con Law and Contracts, and I didn't even finish the former. I feel like I'm going to be kicking myself for a very, very long time. It just wasn't the same as last semester, and I can tell that edge was missing completely.

I know the exact feeling, but please don't do that to yourself! I believe you were as prepared as was humanly possible. Many people pull all nighters and go on to great success, and I didn't finish property, either, if that makes you feel any better at all. (Neither did the classmates I spoke to, which should not be comforting.) You are going to be awesome, and you did far, far better than you think you did. You know you are capable of good grades, and in all likelihood you got them again.

Thank you, sweetie. You've made me feel a bit better, though I still feel I'm a month away from certain depression. I will hold onto the positive thoughts, though - make sure you do the same! Also, even if we didn't fulfill our expectations for some reason, there are still several semesters to go!

When do you finish with your finals? I read earlier in the thread that you didn't start until Wednesday! I wish you the best on the rest and hope they're wrapped up soon!
