Been kicking myself ever since..



Our Crim M/C was AWESOME.

He had a question about a bartender serving a guy 7 vodka shots on his way to pick up his kids from school because "kids are tough to deal with".

I almost lol'ed during the exam.

Loved that question. And the fact our fact pattern had an exploding laser whose only two settings were stun and kill. Very underrated prof.

It's too bad we had him first semester when none of us knew what we were doing.

I think crim professors might develop a disgusting sense of humor over time. Mine had a question about prosecuting a drug dealer who served up IV shots of meth to a breastfeeding mother.

On a serious note, is anyone willing to send me their part of an outline on Erie?
It'd be really appreciated.

He was, by far, my favorite prof. It helps that I want to get into criminal law, but he was funny and engaging and challenging without being a dick.

He teaches evidence as well, and I am going to take it with him.


And I just cannot bring myself to study more for torts. Intentional torts, how hard can they be? Especially since we went over them ALL SEMESTER.

I just keep staring out the window. If there was ever a day to be on the golf course, this is it.

Jealous. It's currently 26 degrees with 24mph wind in New York. Cold weather makes finals that much more awful.

I wish I were a portable computer so that anytime any of my classmates ask me how I did, I could automatically respond with this (the pimp is my Ks exam):

haha yeah seriously where are all those people?! either it is INCREDIBLY common for people to feel like shit after an exam, or they are just being respectful by not posting their good feelings after seeing the rest of us contemplate /selves.
