What do you consider actual studying?

Postby downing » Fri Sep 16, 2011 8:21 pm

I've been working on my Contracts outline for a few hours, and I wouldn't consider this to constitute legitimate studying. Though I am going through my notes, the books I have, and looking for others sources of clarification regarding a few areas of law, I'm going about this activity in order to produce a fine piece of reference material.
Moreover, even when I read material pertaining to class, whether it's a supplement or a case book, I feel as if I'm just doing "enough", whereas when I "study" I feel it ought to be joined with some sort of pain or detriment to my soul or body. (e.g., for kicks I memorized §86 of the second restatement of Contracts last night; it was somewhat painful. I can now recite it verbatim, but I doubt I'll ever need to)

Apparently it's incomprehensible.

So, I see you mentioned trolling. Does that mean you know how insufferable this is? Because if you didn't know that, this is me telling you.

How are you going to remember the whole C.F.R. if you can remember Sec. 86 of R2 of Contracts?

Serious though, you shouldn't have remember word-by-word what section 86 is, but the law elements of it.

Why would you waste time doing this? I'm honestly curious to know the answer.

I thought it might help, but I was wrong. You live you learn. There's a truism that never dies.

Pffft, just memorizing the restatement? I hardly consider that studying... I do that to warm up the mornings. I don't consider any of that real studying; for my real and actual studying I memorize the state codes of all 50 US states, and the city ordinances of the top 10 most populous cities, with my hands tied behind my back, while submerged in a tank of water.
