I'm pretending I'm working, so there's that at least.

Did someone bring beer again, or are you referring to the last several days?

I'm currently holed up in the library with a bunch of books that I need to go through for my note. So far, I have painted my nails, watched 2 episodes of Modern Family, eaten sushi, and read about 5 pages of a book.

Aren't you glad I started playing AOE around you so you got the idea to start playing Total War?

Just realized I carelessly signed up for 5 exam classes in the spring.

THIS WILL BE RECTIFIED.

I have a presentation in an hour.

I just watched 6 youtube videos of kids getting new puppies.

Then I came back to TLS to post about it.

Someone just mentioned something to me about being in Admin. I went "I'm in that class!" He then said "Wait...really?"

I have only one final exam. It's pretty cool.


I have 4 exams as a 2L this year. Are clinics less time-consuming? or what classes are you taking? I need some advice for my spring schedule.

Is that like an "evidence?" I've been trying to figure that out all semester.

LOL yes. You made me jelly. Though, I've been rationalizing it by saying it's better than starting Skyrim which has like 200 hours of gameplay.

I would not be a good person to get advice from. Not gunning for a clerkship, so I don't have any kind of classes that I feel like I HAVE to take. Mostly just going with the Legends of the Law route and taking classes from the professors/judges whose names always come up when talking about the most influential legal thinkers (like Easterbrook, Epstein, Posner, etc.). And Steven Levitt (of Freakonomics fame) is teaching a class cross-listed with the law school and the econ department that might be kind of interesting to take.

I am also not interested in clerkships - So your classes only have written assignments due, and no final exam?

Instead of doing work tonight, I drank. Instead of doing work tomorrow night after work, I am likely to drink. And here I wonder why I'm stressed and feel behind. 75 page assignments by my teachers that got behind aren't helping either.

I'm trying to pick a mix of finals. Maybe one seminar that requires short papers throughout the quarter and no final paper, one or two seminars or classes that require a long paper at the end, and one or two classes that have a traditional final.

Is anyone else looking back on 1L year and wondering: a) how you got motivated to work; and b) how you did well in the first place and will be able to replicate it?
