The "Express" add-on is worrying, but probably not enough to deter me.

I feel like you'll definitely see hipsters there.

The first can lead to the second, if you want it to.

Weekends have lost all meaning for me. I don't think it would matter to me whether or not it was on Saturday or not.

Been done for a few days. Great feeling. This is the best false-sense of accomplishment I've ever had in my entire life.


However, I did get my LWR grade already and it was good news! But we don't curve LWR, so it wasn't that good.

Valid point. The last 3 weeks since Thanksgiving have consisted of this: wake up, go to library, eat lunch, return to library, change scenery, study at home, eat dinner, study at library or home, try and sleep.

My poor doormen. One had to let me in to my apartment because I realized when I got home that my keys were in my backpack at school.

Who wants to get a huge fat ass dinner going for tonight. My GF is coming tomorrow and will probably force me to diet. At least that's what I'd do.

I'm in the same boat. Planning on going through Glannon's E&E, and thinking about every scenario possible for product liability.

Most people in my section were jamming to "All I Do Is Win"- need to have some confidence

I also heard a good bit of people rocking out to "Halftime (Stand Up and Get Crunk)"

My LAST one starts in 5.5 hours. Praise God. I'm at the point where I just want it to be over. I'm 1200 miles from my fiancé, and cannot wait to fly home in a few days. Plus, of course, get absolutely obliterated tonight. I contemplated bringing a bottle of vodka with me to the exam at school so I can take a few shots right after the exam.

Currently dragging ass in the library, not in the mood to reread the torts E&E for the 8th time.

I just want to get a bottle of rum and play FIFA 11 all winter break.

i thought I did awesome on civ pro--starting to think I was *very* wrong...the more I talk to people the more I am like omg I messed up..and not just bc I am taking their word over my own--but because I know they're right! I can now count 4 questions off the top of my head I got wrong on the multiple choice.

who knows how many others there are :-/

there was this one question about a limited liability partnership..he sat there naming where all the partners resided--it was about subject matter jurisdiction. He said they were incorporated in Michigan and principal place of business was michigan. I thought "its a corporation, they have two places of citizenship"---but apparently a partnership can still be "incorporated" and then not have only 2 places of citizenship, since partnerships=wherever the partners are. So basically, I thought it was a corporation and treated it as such.

so basically, I got both questions about that fact pattern wrong, b/c I dont know anything about business :cry: :cry: :cry:
