I've been better this semester too. Last semester there were multiple classes that I never even read for. In fact... holy shit... I don't think I did any reading ever for 4/5 classes.

I only have class two days a week. Makes it hard to justify skipping classes.

I even try and do the reading. Not really successful so far in Con Law II.

I haven't missed a class this semester. Why can't I stop gunning?

I've gone out practically every night since the semester started, but I'm still doing the reading and going to class and I still feel like I have a lot of free time. Really, that's the main reason I'm still doing it--not really sure what I would have to do if I wasn't.

I've skipped about 5 classes this semester. What makes it worse is ALL of my classes are once a week classes.

That's what they have pass/fail for :).

Also, I have never been happier to see a B+ in my entire life. My god was that class awful.

Hah! Went to review my exam and he miscounted...changing me to a B+.

A single missed rule was the difference. And a minor grammatical mistake (it vs they) on one question was the difference to A- despite it being unconfirmed. What a jackass.

How come you always manage to get your grades changed? And brag about it? Second time you've said this to me and I can't imagine it is common in law school.

You have me confused with someone else. This is the only grade I've ever had changed and I wasn't bragging... Just sharing my elation, how much of an idiot he is, and how tight his self-imposed grading was. Hell, this is only the second time I've ever even met with a professor.

Plus, it was his fault. He miscounted check marks...not like I whined until he regraded. Chill out, it's not affecting your grade.

Taking Con Law II. Took a First Amendment class in the Fall. Just bothered to look at the syllabus for Con Law and saw that at least 50% of the class is about the First Amendment. And another 20% on Due Process, which I covered in Admin Law in the Fall.

WIN.

My grades came back. I slipped significantly. I have resolved to work harder this semester. And yet here I am, book uncracked.

I have hit a rut. Nothing that happens the next three semesters makes one fucking difference. I am likely not competitive for a clerkship, yet gradeswise I am safe for my job. So yea, 2L no motvation... because there isn't a single fucking reason for motivation. I don't give a shit. I think I might just study abroad this fall or something.

As someone who also got some toilet grades, let's get back in it.
