Contracts and torts outlines are done, minus fixing some typos. Only ~80% done civ pro. Gonna go hard on that tomorrow in addition to my contracts studying. I think tomorrow I'll practice my issue spotting on an old contracts exam or 2 from other professors at my school (not gonna bother answering the questions, just reading through and writing down a list of every issue I spot then comparing that to the sample answer). Need to spot as many issues as quickly as I can in contracts, since my professors exams have tons of them.

But take the night off, it sounds like you're a bit burnt out. Relax all night and sleep well, and get back at it tomorrow!

Yeah that's the worst part. I'm good all day but I have to nap when I come home from class. On the flip side, if I don't take it, I have absolutely no idea what happened in class. I think I have autism and my doctors just didn't notice.

Do what works for ya. Also, I gotta say not being in the law library is beneficial. I don't have to look up and see what everyone else is doing.

Calm down, everyone. We got this.

Or that sick feeling when you get sidetracked for an hour, usually cleaning everything in the house, and then your addy-fueled mind just realized you weren't working for the last hour, and you starting thinking about suicide.

My sophomore year in undergrad was horrible...But fuck my apartment was clean.

I disagree, but that may be because my professors are rather idiosyncratic. In Contracts, we barely covered consideration, and in Torts, we didn't cover intentional torts, so Siegal's wasn't very helpful.

You should be able to check it out from your library.

Yeah, I just say that because of the MC and essay's it is packed with.

It's far too late for contracts and me. Exam is next Saturday, and I have no clue wtf is going on. That feel.
