You are an incredible tool.

It's better to worry about yourself as opposed to what everyone else is doing. Although the above comment may sound cocky, I think that's the right mindset

At the library as well, place is 99% empty... but of course some tools are sitting near me and talking loud as fuck, and I don't feel like moving all my shit.

Yes.

We had all kinds of mandatory meetings about the process. The message was always, "Now, don't worry about this right now, because your first semester grades are all that matter. But it's very important that you fill out your symplicity profile and update your resume and format it to conform with our requirements and sign up for a small group meeting and then a one-on-one meeting to discuss said resume and job possibilities and oh you'll need to research the jobs you want for next year before you do that and also don't forget to register for the career fair and summer funding before December 1 or you lose the chance and then come to the informal career fair and make contacts and email them a follow-up thank you with your resume attached in case they know of any opportunities and make sure you are making contacts in other areas too.

But don't worry about all this right now because grades are all that matter." /self

1: I am completely unsure whether I am experiencing pain or itching or maybe I just have a bad taste in my mouth.

2: I probably just need a Band Aid.

3: This is distressing. I don't want this to be happening to me at all.

4: My pain is not fucking around.

5: Why is this happening to me??

6: Ow. Okay, my pain is super legit now.

7: I see Jesus coming for me and I'm scared.

8: I am experiencing a disturbing amount of pain. I might actually be dying. Please help.

9: I am almost definitely dying.

10: I am actively being mauled by a bear.

11: Blood is going to explode out of my face at any moment.

Too Serious For Numbers: You probably have ebola. It appears that you may also be suffering from Stigmata and/or pinkeye.

having LRW done with moved me down a few numbers

Dear god, the people who write rape law statutes should win prizes for being some of the most incompetent individuals on the planet.

I'm not sure whether or not I like having one of three exam questions for crim as a take home. Two questions, 500 word total limit, comparing and contrasting two rape law statutes - one U.S. and one foreign.

For anyone who is struggling with Civ Pro (I know I was/am), I highly suggest checking out the BarBri lectures. It has helped me a lot so far with the overall concepts and is really just an amazing way to get the whole subject in 6 lectures. You need to be a BarBri member but if you aren't you can probably find a friend who is willing to share. Hope this helps someone else as much as it has helped me!

7-hour take-home crim exam with a tight word limit. One issue-spotter and one policy question. Do I win a prize???
