Monday is the last day for finals on the other side of the Hudson, too. I would have preferred just to wrap it up this week.

1 to go... Monday.. 9:30am... Civ Pro death.


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.


Oh man 1200 miles away from fiance has to be super tough. Enjoy your time with him after finals.


I would just like to say that I am DONE...and am currently DRUNK! My torts final wasn't too bad. His specialty is medical malpractice so I was incredibly surprised that medical malpractice didn't show up once on the exam. Hallelujah!

Also, being 1200 miles away from my fiancé actually hasn't been too bad. It gave me time to focus on school without feeling like I'm neglecting him. We've been together for 7 years (high school sweethearts) so we really understand each other. No fighting whatsoever. We just get each other. It's amazing. Also, I'm very, very independent so I do absolutely fine on my own. As a side note though, I cannot wait to have sex everyday for a week straight. My God.

P.S. I LOVE alcohol. I feel amazing right now, and can't wait to sleep until 3pm tomorrow :D

Don't worry. It feels fucking awesome no matter when it comes. I had a midnight deadline for my note, and I sent the email at 11:58. I even took a screen shot just in case SAO wants to fuck around. I am now drunk. That is all.

^^ That is the scariest thing I have ever seen.

And seriously, to go through my first semester of law school with no sex whatsoever sucked. And since I slowly quit running, I carried the stress with me until the very end. Next semester I have to at least stay with a steady running routine or I fear I'll lose my mind.

dear god I think I am going insane. I had a panic attack in my sleep because I realized (in the middle of a dream) that I never talked about how the situation was offensive non-mutual issue preclusion and the factors cts look at to decide whether to allow it. I was like "omg thats so many points!!"--the panic woke me up. Then, in a conscious state, I realized the issue on the exam was claim preclusion not issue preclusion and so non-mutual wouldnt apply anyway.

wth. give me my grades so I can go back to being normal pleaseeee. just for a few days during break!!

I feel like responding here may be a bad idea, because of our stalking fanclub.

I'm gunning Arrested Development. It's great. I'm also reading a chicklit book that IAFG noted I will probably accidentally start highlighting and outlining.
