XBOX BINGE!!!! Once I finished my open memo, I played COD for eight hours straight. Best day of my law school life. Also the sunday after, was one of the most productive days I've had so far.

Currently experiencing a major case of burnout. Physically I feel alright, but mentally I'm starting to feel a bit...tired? Feel like I'm losing my motivation to study.


Any advice on what I can do to get back in the game?


Take a weekend off. Don't do any work. Go outside and enjoy the fall weather.

I did this, but in reverse, then got some tail, then played more black ops... went to bed at 3am, class started at 1pm... good times.

That was terrible. I'm less motivated knowing someone got paid to make that. Man. Keep driving? What kind of coach says that? Here's what my coach said to motivate me: "Jesus Christ, you're terrible, it's like playing with 10 guys with you out there, no it's like 9 because you actually take someone else out too."

Think about the asshole in your section who is gloating because he's thinking about you burning out. And then realize how much you want to study just so you can prove him wrong and see the look on his face when you do better on exams than he does.
