I didn't go to any classes on Tuesday and brought a beer to con crim pro on Friday. (It was also only my second time attending that class.)


think we're in the same class. of course, this would be a little more meaningful if either of us actually attended.

How is that? Been looking to pick it up. Need something to balance out my CoD habit.

I anticipate somewhere in the range of a 10 : 1 gaming to studying ratio this semester.

If you like quest based RPGs, there isn't a better game out there. It is incredibly addictive and you can spend hours completing side quests before you even realize it is 3AM and you have class in 6 hours.

Note draft due Friday. I've written like a paragraph and spent the whole day being hungover and watching tv. I also haven't yet done any of my reading for the week. And so my 2l laziness beings.

I have attended most of most of my classes so far this semester, which is already significantly better than last semester.

All of my professors except one have decided to record all their classes. I feel that the last holdout just doesn't understand the life of a student.

I turned in a draft late this weekend, granted this had more to do with my life being a shitshow than no motivation, but it was the second missed deadline, so I'm pretty sure I found the standard. I'll let you know.

Recent deadline was a day late. The one prior was longer, but I had stayed in contact with the editor to let her know I was changing part of my topic. Still, I'mma need my shit together for the next submission.

I think I've skipped like 8 classes so far, and I'm pretty damn proud of my attendance record this semester.

Oh, it occurs to me I should clarify that I skipped my first class of the semester Friday. I don't want anyone to think I had perfect attendance through three semesters of law school.

IDK why you are starting in now when you know what works for you: classes that require no attendance, then make your life hell for a month before finals

I've been to 1/5 classes so far.

Second semester might be less motivated than first.

Can't find enough classes where I won't have to work hard and will be learning something marginally useful. Law school, why you play me like that?

2 classes 4 days a week. No class on Fridays. 1 class that assumes working knowledge of accounting and corp finance, which I haven't taken in 4 years or so. How hard could it be?
