Welp, pretty sure I bombed my tax exam today after slacking all semester, so I figured I should make an appearance in this thread. I actually felt pretty good going in, but it was just one of those exams where you read the prompt through once and you think to yourself: "what the fuck is this even about? I swear I didn't learn this this semester...

You only need to take it by 2. You just want free liquor at noon!

Yes, yes I do.

Channeling my inner-Tebow. Passing admin is going to require a miracle.

P.S. - I don't like how quiet it is in this thread; seems like people are actually working, and that scares me.

Played Ms. Pac Man at a bar, drank, and ate half a box of twinkies tonight. I'm so distraught about tax tomorrow that I needed to be entirely numb tonight. Gave up studying for it. Its just too late, and if I don't know the material by now, then its pointless. Please god don't let me get below a B tomorrow.

Things I have googled in the last hour instead of writing my paper:

-Where does Stevie Wonder live?

-What is the coverage map for the Patriots-Broncos game?

-What is the Kelley Blue Book for the car I drove in college?

Instead of studying for my Con Law final, I've been incessantly playing Cut the Rope. Why did I decide that now would be a good time to download that game?

I'm taking an exam in 27 hours and all I did yesterday was work out, eat ice cream, play Skyrim, and watch the new Louis CK standup special. Not a single page of outline was reviewed nor a single practice exam attempted. I'm riding this lazy train all the way to the end of finals don't you worry.

I exchanged 4 months of absolute worthlessness for 12 days of pure hell. It's going to take me about 3 more months to recover from those 12 days.

I will watch it with you again. I've seen it twice now because it's so hilarious. Louis Ck, desertlaw, and woodchuck make for a great break from my finals study procrastination.

You bet your ass I'll be there. Can't wait. I'm a big fan of that venue, although it can get really crowded.

Don't worry all. You'll make it through it. A bar (and I guess the bar) awaits you.
