Honestly, 33% is probably closer to accurate. I just don't want to fully admit how much I've slacked.

20% sounds about right, probably on the high end.

Professional responsiblity ("ethical lawyering," same shit) in 17 hours. There are so many better uses of my time, like studying for the final I have the day after or watching dancing Kate Upton videos.

Prepare your anus. Francis will pwn you so hard on a final. Then give you an A- anyway. So just don't worry. It's going to suck, know it. Don't panic.

Done, dammit. My Con Law II final was a masterpiece of bullshit and literary nothingness.

4-5 pages on Lochner and Carolene Products alone.

I did no work before 5 PM today. Now that I've sat down to study, things haven't changed much. Whatever. I think I"ll find a new TV show to watch. Something funny. People have any ideas?

I've seen: arrested development, better off ted, 30 rock, community, parks and rec, the office before it sucked, party down. Probably others I'm forgetting. Maybe I'll rent a movie to pass the time before not studying.

Eastbound and down. Also, game of thrones is way legit. You can stream that shit from Korea or France or somewhere without copyright laws.

I dunno where you get your cable, but I get mine from comcast and they include HBOGo for free, where I can stream Game of Thrones legally.

Rather than work on my forthcoming finals, I spent the afternoon watching most of the second season of Arrested Development on Hulu.

No regrets.
