My reintroduction into the wild has been difficult, but it is progressing. Yesterday, it was relearning how to sleep and speak to other people. Today it was re-learning how to use a knife and fork. Making meals out of crackers and salsa, and ham sandwiches has quite the degenerative effect on that skill. Many more steps to go on the road to recovery...

The write-on competition sucks, our school did it during the school year and we had our first cite checks like 2 weeks before finals it was miserable

Congrats goosey! I can't bring myself to do anything productive since finals were done last tuesday and I don't feel bad about it. Just a week left before the SA internship starts.

Our packet is apparently 1000 pages and we get 10 days.


I've heard the horrors of Cornell write on. Also, just so you know, people who "grade" those and decide your fate do things like read them at Yankee stadium.


haha.. this is the most ridiculous part and it is absolutely true.

hours until crim law exam(my last final): 43
amount I've studied today (and yesterday): nominal
amount of fuck I give about this exam: 0

someone motivate me :(

I've got an open book exam, but it's supposed to be based on "critically evaluating all available doctrinal choices" (both MPC as well as the various approaches that jurisdictions apply) rather than being based on substantive law (elements of crimes, etc...)

I've outlined a bit, but I thought that I had 2-3 outlines from this professor.
Turns out they're the same outline, and it's not very good.
